FOTD: An Evening Look With A Touch Of Bling

I did this look for the Dior Fairy Golds Palette. Again, like yesterday’s red lip FOTD, this is mainly for my archives. For those of you who are interested to know how I created the look, please read on.

 

Face

I am testing out a new foundation, so here, I am using the full coverage Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (review up later). I didn’t set with any powder because I find the foundation to be quite heavy. Before I applied blush, I went ahead to apply eye makeup first. I wanted the foundation to set before I put on the blush. Here, I used a combination of 2 warm neutral colours. MAC Gingerly is used at the hollow of my cheeks and MAC Tenderling at the apple of my cheeks.

Eyes

For this look, all colours used are from the Dior Fairy Golds palette. You might want to read that first, otherwise colour reference will be lost on you. I used top left shade on the inner half of my lids and bottom left shade on the outer half. Then with the bottom right shade, I darkened the outer corners of my eyes, pulling it up to contour my eye socket as well. I repeated this step until I got the intensity I wanted. With my Urban Decay Zero pencil liner, I tightlined my upper lash line and smudged out the lower lash line. With a tiny brush, I pat the gold glitter (top right) on my lower lash line, on top of the smudged liner. This darkens the gold, giving it more presence. With my ring finger, I dabbed the centre shade onto the centre of my lids before applying loads of mascara. Naturally, my brows are filled, but this time, with Suqqu brow pen in Brown. I only filled in gaps and defined the brow ‘tail’ because I wanted the brows to look less prominent.

Lips

I didn’t do much here. I only applied a peachy nude lipstick from the bullet. I used Lunasol Full Glamour Lips in 38. I’m not sure if this is available. If memory serves me correctly, this was last year’s fall collection.

 

 

 

My rose gold earrings with pearls were a gift and the top is a cropped lace pullover from Monki. I think it’s a Hong Kong brand, not sure. I hope you like this look and that you’ll have fun recreating it!

    Ok, one of these days I’m gonna break my piggy bank and go get a Dior palette πŸ™‚ Been eyeing Dior palette since the day I saw the swatches for Golden Savannah. This Fairy Golds one is also tugging my heart string πŸ™‚ Somehow the taupe and gold shades in some Dior palettes always looks so fab. The colour looks so great in swatches. I am a person who likes shimmer than matte. And I have to say this Lily, you’re smoking hot in the FOTD! Your pouty lips are so so sexy and I mean it as sincere compliment. Love the way you use the Dior palette for FOTD! You’ve excellent skills in applying make up particulary for the eyes. I am still learning to apply eye shadow without looking like someone boxed me or I accidentally dipped my eyes in the a pot of eye shadow lol. I’ve since started to use eye brushes but I first started with fingers after learning from your blog πŸ™‚

    • Aaw, thanks so much for the compliments, dear! *blush* Glad to know you’re now using eye brushes. You just have to make sure the eye brushes are the right size for your eyes. Then you would have won half the battle πŸ˜‰
