FOTD : Hello summer!

March 29, 2014

Summer is finally back in Dubai. Yes, yes. Summer. There is no such thing as spring here. Bikinis, tank tops, shorts and beach dresses are already popped out and the makeup has gone lighter. But no matter how hot it gets, nothing will keep me from piling up layers of makeup. 

The look that I went for today is nothing new, really. It’s actually very similar to what I do everyday for school but with more makeup. It’s like an upgraded version of the everyday look. 

1. Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum – this is actually my summer shade and I’m still a bit pale to use this. So mixed it up with a lighter tinted moisturiser. 
2. Bourjois CC eye cream – I used this under my eyes and around my nose. Click here for a full review!
3. Benefit Highbeam – this was applied to the cheekbones and brow bones. It gives the most beautiful healthy glow.
4. Benefit Agent Zero – I used this only on my T-zone. I’m still testing it out and don’t really know how I feel about it. Have you tried it out? 
5. Urban Decay Sin and MAC Phloof eye shadows – I mixed these two eye shadows that I dusted onto my lids. Using a light eyeshadow on your lid will deepen the crease and will make you look more tanned. Fact. 
6. MAC Gingerly blush – I’m still hooked to this and it’s almost gone. I’ve used this very lightly as the whole look was really subtle. 
7. Bourjois 3D Effect Gloss in Rose Allegoric – this stuff is glossy like crazy! I could see the reflection of my reflection on my lips when I looked in the mirror. Insane. I haven’t been using gloss that much lately, but I love the natural and healthy colour this gives. Plus, it’s so moisturising. Love it!
As you can see, I went for the typical effortless look. Unfortunately, pictures tend to wash out the colours a lot. But after taking pictures, I added a bit more of Gingerly to add up the “tan” and a pop of warm pink on the apples of my cheeks. Of course, I used mascara. I went for a Maybelline one that I found in my stash. It’s terrible! I can’t believe I used to like this crap. I need to find a new mascara, I’m bored of the ones that I have. Recommendations? 
Also, I’ve mentioned in my previous posts that I was ill and I looked terrible. Please, just look at the business happening under my eyes. Actually, the whole eye area is really puffy. On the bright side, I’m recovering and feeling like myself again. Woohoo!
How are you celebrating the start of spring/summer (wherever you are in the world)?
