FOTD: Gold Member, Red Letter


I was having a bad morning yesterday. My allergy was acting up and I literally woke up sneezing and my eyes watering like crazy. My throat felt dry from the wheezing and my nose red. What a day to spend the post-Valentine day. R felt so bad for me and gave me song allergy med. Finally come noon, it subsided and I needed to get ready work. Had to salvage the rest of the day and also get ready for a meeting. Good thing I had new dresses to choose from. :)



For the face makeup though I relied on what Max Factor and Avon provided me. :)

Face:
Obagi Healthy Skin Protection SPF 35
GoodSkin Labs Smooth-365
Max Factor Xperience Weightless Foundation (Brown Hessian)
Avon Ideal Shade Loose Powder (Neutral)
The Body Shop Cheek Cream Blush (Rose)
MAC Bronzing Powder (Refined Golden)


Inspired by the makeup looks of One Tree Hill ladies, I decided to go for a gold bronze look using my MAC Eyeshadows that's been gathring dust under my vanity. :)

Eyes:
Ellana Eye Primer
MAC Gorgeous Gold (Veluze Pearl)
MAC Time & Space (Frost)
MAC Bronze (Frost)
MAC Femme Fi (Veluxe Pearl)
Wet n Wild Gel Liner
Maybelline Long Extreme Stiletto
Model Co. Eyebrowz Designer Brow Kit (Medium)
Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner (Brown)





Lips:
Allue Glam Rock Lip Colour Performance (Her Glitz) (Sample from a teen magazine)


Nails:

Revlon Nail Lacquer (All Fired Up)


I'm very very impressed with the products I used. First, the Max Factor Weightless Foundation is definitely as it says. Avon Ideal Shade Loose Powder provide a very matte finish that sets my foundation right. MAC eyeshadows  is truly phenomenal. Hands down to this brand. Amazing, Allue lip colors that are branded for kids worked well for my puckers.

As for my Ellana Eye Primer, let me rave about it again. Although MAC eye shadows have great staying power, I loved the result I saw last night when I got home.



See how in tact my eye shadows still are? Nice, right?

Even with puffy eyes and nose as red as the hearts strung together during Valentine's, I'm still having a great day ahead of me. Wouldn't let these allergies get the best of me! :) Hehehe!

What about you? How do you deal with allergies? And have you tried gold and bronze makeup look?
