The Good 'Ol Days of Taking FOTD Pics + Belle De Jour Fair on Oct. 16

I remember those days when taking a Face of the Day photo was as easy as putting on your making and setting your digital cam to auto and shooting pics like nobody's business. No aperture, no lighting, no ISO or even exposure to think of. Just take a picture and  you're ready to upload. For the past 2 years, I took taking FOTD photos to major complication by  buying myself a big ass camera that took me awhile to get use to.

Now, I'm returning to basics and took a shot (pun intended) with just taking pics of myself using a tiny and affordable digital camera on Auto Mode.

Results: Not too shabby!

My new Sony Digital Camera looks like it has a beauty shot as it seem to have airbrush my pores out. That or my The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Cream Compact Foundation partenered with my Clinique Superbalanced Powder worked magic on my super bad skin. I've been dealing with acne lately and taking nice photos was becoming a challenge. In the photo it looks as if my was behaving well (save for my oiliness).

My new Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W550, which is only Php9,999, has proven to be a good investment giving me good quality photos. And it is also helping with my health, as I don't need to lug around my DSLR with me every time I go out or attend events. 

What I also love about the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W550 is the 26mm wide angle lens. It also has a Sweep Panorama setting and a nice 3.0" LCD. The video isn't so bad either.

As for the makeup, I used the following:

The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Cream Compact Foundation
Clinique Superbalanced Powder Makeup in Deep
Revlon Colostay Aqua Mineral Powder in Light
Laura Mercier Undercover Pot in 02
MAC Studio Fix Concealer in NC30
Ellana Mineral Blush in Kitten

For the eyes:
Deep purple eyeshadow
Black with gold shimmer eyeshadow
Cream frost highlighter
VMV Ooh-La-lash Mascara
Tony Moly Gel Liner in Black
Majolica Majorca Cream Liner

Estee Lauder Pure Color in Wild Pink
MAC Dazzleglass Creme in Doll It Up

I think I made a right decision with my new cam. What do you think?
