Sunday Stash Shopping #57

Hi guys, this is gonna be a quick one! I didn’t have one planned for today, actually, then remembered I took a photo of myself before our family photo session. So, I thought I’d share with you what I wore. Erm, I don’t have photos of the products I used, but I’ll mention it below – AND link to their reviews (if any).

I skipped sunscreen before applying a foundation without SPF to avoid any flashbacks. I applied just enough makeup for the camera to pick up some definition because if the camera were to pick up on the colors I used, my in laws will probably think I’m crazy. They’re a very conservative bunch, dead serious too. I sometimes do wonder how I can survive, given I’m the total opposite, but you know, conversations are kept to “only when necessary” to avoid misunderstanding. Teehee! Anyway, here’s the look.

 

 

look for family photo

I hope you liked today’s look! I did change out the lip color for something deeper and more dramatic later on. I used Rouge Dior 813 5th Avenue, a deep red. Erm, forgot to take a photo of that too. I’ll create another look using that dramatic red, so don’t worry. I might take a photo of the products used later and just edit this post. It’s a little too late now 🙂

It’s Ashlyn’s school concert today. It’s her final year before moving on to primary school next year!! She’s a big girl now. Have a great Sunday, you guys!

  • Hi Lily,
    love the look, it is fresh and beautiful on you. That blush from the holiday collection is stunning. I was trying to resist it today, and the pinky red palette, Blazing Sun or something. I have the Eternal Gold and I am not all that happy with it. Hope you are loving it more.

    • Lily

      Thanks Sara! I have Eternal Gold palette as well, and wish I was sent the other palette instead. Eternal Gold definitely looks sheerer, from what I see online anyway.

  • You look awesome! And I’m laughing at imagining you sitting at dinner with the conservative in-laws LOL hahaha! You are a champ! There was a blush from the holiday collection?!! I don’t think we saw it here! Gonna look for it now. And congrats to Ashlyn! That’s awesome!

    • Lily

      Hehehe… yeah, put in conservative, AND sensitive. Man, it’s like having to cross a minefield!
      Ashlyn is so happy today, not because her speech was flawless, but because I put on makeup for her. She had the best makeup in school today, if I must say. LOL!

      • BooBooNinja

        She is adorable. 🙂

        • Lily

          Thanks Boo 🙂

  • Love the look! Your brows look amazing! I use the same brow pencil but need to work on my technique more

    • Lily

      Thank you Meiko! I think brows are the hardest. I’ve been growing them out SLOWLY and PAINFULLY but I still need to draw them a little thicker. I already know my brow shape, but I know I’d struggle if I had to draw on others!

  • I love the look, and how you’ve done the eyeliner! What? I cannot find any crazy colours in your look that any conservative person would disapprove of, but then maybe your camera didn’t pick them up either.. xx

    • Lily

      Hahaha! Thanks Sofia, and I don’t think it’s the color because I made sure it’s sort of neutral. I think the more acceptable look would be the no makeup look. LOL!

  • You always pick the best lip colors! So pretty.

    • Lily

      Thanks Melissa!

  • Ooh, Lily, you look fabulous! I like your top, too – it’s a great color on you!

    Lol, I think…in-laws in general…always an experience 😛

    • Lily

      Thanks Larie! And to think I live with them. I surprise myself, to actually have lived with them for close to 9 years without any erm, exciting drama to add to my life.

  • Liz

    Aw, Ashlyn! Seriously, she can guest blog for you soon, lol.

    You look amazing!

    • Lily

      Hahaha thanks Liz. I don’t know why the school insisted on baby blue eye shadow, but I gave her a blue smokey eye. It’s blue alright 🙂

  • Lily

    Thanks Jen, and yes, in laws are tricky. There are really really nice ones though.
