FOTD: Light Makeup for Party Look

DECEMBER -- is the month of COMPANY CHRISTMAS PARTIES! And what better way to FORCE me to wear a lot of make up is when the threat of non-conformity incident report is being waved in my face, resulting to future disciplinary actions by the company Admin. Sigh. In any case, here is the party make up look that I created.

This is my first FOTD so you can understand the newbie-ness of this. A lot of eyeliner and eyeshadow and I was ready to sit the night away! The best thing about the make up that I wore is that my face was made up in such a way that was breathable, despite the suffocating venue we had and the throngs of people that were there. I had very little to no oiliness, and it is a feat considering the natural tendency of my skin to act up when it's humid and the external factors i.e. suffocating venue. :))

What I wore for my face:

 That's Ellana Mineral Espresso Con Pana Oil Absorbing Finishing Powder and the Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Face Base. There was no need for foundation because the MM Base was good enough as coverage create evenness on the skintone (and also acts like a brightener, because I looked lighter for some reason?) You can click to enlarge the photo below:

I really liked that I was able to put on makeup without it melting at the end of the event.

I was able to sit there for a full 6 HOURS with only one retouch to my face in between. Though the lipstick wore off somehow because of the buffet dinner hahaha. Here is my face after the event!

And what do you know! My team won 3 awards for the Music Video that we made! Best Production Design, Best Director (ME! OMG!)and the overall winner title, bagging the Best Video Award!

My WINNER face below:

Slight smile. Coz she's too used to winning, this girl. Hahaha, kidding.

Better get used to it because this is after all a skincare and makeup blog. Though more on the former than the latter. XD
