FOTD: A Twinkle in the Eyes

Hello, Ladies!!

Another FOTD! This time my skin has chosen to misbehave and I'm getting all sorts of acne, from small ones to cystic ones. But I went to my dermatologist in Skinnovation (Of which Frances of Topaz Horizon's sister-in-law is a partner of), and I asked if I could take Acnetrex again. She advised for me to take it for the next 6 months in pulse method (2 caps for 7 days every month). Wish me well, because this journey will get a lot worst before it gets better.

For now, this is how I look like all made up.. well, not so much since I just used a few products on my face. And like my previous posts, I am still finishing up my ellana eyeshadows.

I used light colors here because this was the day I was going to get my haircut and I didn't want to distract the stylist from making the look that I wanted him to create. Also, I love Twinkle (bright sunny-y gold frost) from Ellana!! :) This shade reminds me of those Korean beauty magazines with all the glow-y sparkly make-ups. Then I complimented it with Siren (a yellow golden brown shimmer) I partnered it with a white eyeliner to make my eye pop a lot more.

I kind of miss my long hair... but not really.

VMV Skin Savvy Foundation in Clay
Ellana Perfect Blend Mineral Foundation in Hazelnut Latte
The Body Shop Kiss of Colour Cheek Blush in Vibrant Rose (The Stamp Blush)

The love for makeup and all things beautiful... I guess this will never wan... I will always have this even if I grow old and wrinkly. And I do appreciate that you guys take your time to share this with me. :)
