LOOK: Neutrals with Matte Lids & a Shimmery Crease

Hi everyone! I'm finally back to blogging (again!), and I'm back in London too! I was really busy last week because of last minute stuff before the trip back, and when I got back to London 2 days ago, I had to cram my module essay aka mini-journal paper lol. I just submitted it electronically, and now I'm tired, hungry and jet-lagged. I'm happy to have my project out of the way though, but just to let you know, I might not have the time to be on my blog much for this month, because my exams are just around the corner! I'll try to update and post more posts when I can though. Please bear with me ♥

Here's a look I did last week that I've been meaning to post in a while! I used the products I got from my last MAC haul at the London Heathrow duty free ♥ It's a pretty simple neutral look, I hope you enjoy it!

I used:

MAC Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral, all over lid)
MAC MSFN in Medium (brow highlight)
MAC eyeshadows in Tete-a-tint (matte peach, lid) & Antiqued (shimmery copper/brown, crease)
MAC Feline eye kohl (upper lash line)
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero (lower lash line & tightline)
L'oreal Double Extension Mascara with Serum Inside Primer
Maybelline Collosal Volume Mascara
MAC Spiked brow pencil

MAC Select Moisturecover concealer in NW20 (undereyes) & NC30 (spots)
MAC Pearl cream colour base (highlight)
MAC MSFN in Medium & Medium Dark (contour)
MAC Peaches blush

MAC Freckletone lipstick

What do you think? ♥

By the way, I might not have many looks posted in the next week because I have a few tiny scabs on my cheeks waiting to heal! I had my personal Dermatologist (aka MOM) treat my freckles before I left, that grew bigger from all the sun exposure back home lol.

Me waiting for the anaesthesia to work - I'm tanned!!

I also had a haircut and my hair permed again after that. I had it done at Tony and Jackey in SM City Davao. This was my hairdresser; he's Korean. I can't remember his name though. He was funny although it was also kinda awkward that he was pretend (?) hitting on me the entire time. And don't those electronic curlers look scary??? Its called a Digital Perm, and boy were they heavy! o.o

Well I hope you enjoyed this post! Have a good day xx ♥


  1. I really love the eyeliner, and i've been wanting that freckletone lipstick for so long XD I may just get it after seeing this fotd

  2. @Soccerrocker1234- Feline and freckletone are two great picks! I really think you should get them. =) Freckletone you can get later since its permanent x

  6. @bowsnhearts- Yes I will! :) xx

  7. Cute look as always!! Interesting post! What does your mum put on your freckles? And love the sound of the digital perm. Do you know any places that do it in London?

  8. @Beauty Scribbler - Thank you so much! My mom removed my freckles by electrocautery. Here's a link to wikipedia lol. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cauterization

    I've never heard of digital perms anywhere else apart from the Korean hairdressers I go to in the Philippines. I'd like to know myself whether its available in London! :o

  9. that korean hairdresser looks a bit creepy in that shot... How ironic that your lipstick shade is called Freckletone in this post, haha.

  10. Love that look! It really makes you look so natural!

  11. Woah electrocautery sounds pretty scary!

    If I find any digital perm places in London, I'll let you know. I heard about digital perms from my friend in the States and I'd love to try it one day!
