FOTD: Soft Neutrals + FOTD Contest
I did a rough face of the day using my pigments from Ellana Minerals and some of my reliable makeups. I didn't actually want to put on makeup that day but when I took another look of my pale dull face, I just had to make time. So I did what I knew best, make sure I had color on my cheeks and lips, applied a bit of bronzer and colors to my eyes.
Everyday I find that applying makeup has been easier and it has already been a part of my daily routine. It's like drinking a cup of coffee or brushing my teeth. It's not that I can't leave without makeup on but I it's more on the act that I feel good whenever I wear it. Being an addict and one that appreciate the use makeup, finding reasons not to use them is quite hard before stepping out of the door. Makeup is a way to express myself, inspire confidence and adds pizzazz to an otherwise ho-hum day.
We may be a few who thinks this way about makeup, that's why I'm glad that with beauty blogging... I meet more and more people (like you) who can relate how I feel about cosmetics.

This look is pretty much barely there and would just blend onto my skintone as hour. For days when i know I won't be attending a big party or event, I try tame down my makeup (God knows, how hard that is for me!). So here it's pretty much jusr accentuating and shading. No bright colors whatsoever.
I've recently acquired the whole collection of Honey Bronze from The Body Shop but with the rain and eveything, taking photos of them has been sort of impossible. Now that the sun is shining yet again, I now have a chance to them to you! So excited about this since I'm really a bronzer addict. :)
