Becoming Sleek

Posts Tagged ‘Nichido

Makeup is such a versatile tool and can really change a girl’s look if done correctly. I was able to use this to good effect when I needed a severe office look to help me face one of my toughest challenges as a manager. I wanted a “mega taray” look because I wanted to project a certain image.

Red lipstick is the centerpiece, a shade I don’t normally wear to the office and something I would usually associate with the word “taray”. I supported it with a light blush, dark brows, and some pinkish-red eyeshadows.

I usually only have 20-30 minutes to prepare in the morning, since I have a 2-hour travel time to go to the office. This is what I would usually wear on my face on a typical office day.

What’s your basic office look?

For this FOTD, I am featuring the LA Colors eyeshadow palette I received from Peachy Pink Sisters. I have been using this palette a lot in my everyday office makeup, but usually only the top row for a more neutral look. Today I would like to try using the bottom row for a bolder day look.

Here’s the completed look. It’s still a little conservative (in my opinion), but I like the flash of color in my eyes.

A closer look of my eyes. Pardon the sweat drops on my forehead (ang init!).

What do you think?

Let’s break our personal barriers! I’m going to break mine and post a FOTD today. I’m always nervous about posting my face around the internet, but we don’t learn anything if we don’t master our fears. So! Here’s my first ever Face of the Day.
