For this week’s stash shopping, I decided to do purple. Also, I made it a point to use more products by layering. I’ve been keeping my makeup simple, and this is the makeup I wore to our date night to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary.ย These are the products I used – I think you’ve seen them around and I’ve reviewed all of them at some point.

I used Chanel Illusoire as a base on my lids before layering RBR Bohemian Waxwing on top. I used a black pencil liner to line my waterline before loading up on mascara. I’ve been using my Shiseido Maquillage brow pencil to fill in my brows. There’s only a little more before I use it up, so it’s getting me excited. It’s really difficult to use up makeup, and I’m working hard ๐Ÿ˜›

On the cheeks, I used Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Pale Pink under my Lunasol blushes. I used the warm red blush and the highlighter. I’ve started to use my RMK liquid foundation again, and it’s an undisputed favourite. There are some liquid foundations that make me go ‘meh’ sometimes, OK on other times, but RMK never fails to make me go ‘yes!’. It’s not in the product picture, but I used my trusty Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Curviest Caramel on my lips. When I don’t know what to wear, that’s what I’d go for.

I hope you liked this week’s look. Something different than neutrals / browns :-) Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    Ugggh, Lily, so pretty. I love the eye makeup looks you come up with, and this one is exceptionally gorgeous! That smoky plum is so elegant.

    Beautiful! I decided not to get any more of those Chanel Illusion D’ombres but now you’re making me want Illusoire.

    The captions on the RMK foundation bottle made me LOL!

    • Lily

      Yeah, I thought that when I first saw the RMK foundation too. LOL! And yes to Illusoire. I’ve been using it very light handedly, but I think the key to making the colour really pop is to pack it on with a brush!

    This is a lovely look! I love it when I go back to RMK foundations too. I’m always like “Why did I ever stray?” :)

    • Lily

      Yes, sometimes I even feel I should stop looking at other foundations too. Then again, curious minds…

      • liyeun

        the RMK is THAT good????? now i’m curious.
