My First FOTD & lulz :D

My First FOTD! :D
w/c my camera totally washed out

Hey, girls! Okay, so I have a question: How do you make your camera capture the makeup you have on as true to its color & vibrancy in real life? I'm using a Sony Cyber-Shot T7 & I'm not really sure w/c setting it has to be on. If anyone could tell me, I'd really be grateful!

Face Products:
Cinema Secrets Concealer
Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals

Glow Fusion Intuitive Active Bronzer

Yep, I've used the Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals Foundation. A lot of you have requested for me to make a review on it from the last post & I'd love to do so! Just give me, say, 2 weeks to road test the product under different (weather / environmental) conditions.

I have an oily, acne-prone, sensitive skin if anyone's interested. Quite a combination, huh?

Careline Glamour Eyes in Soft Earth
all over the lid as a base. Prestige Waterproof Eyeliner in Star on the tear duct & below the brow bone. Jordana Almond e/s on the inner 1/3 of the lid. Smashbox e/s in Smashing Jpeg on the middle lid. Jordana Navy e/s on the outer lid. The Face Shop e/s in WH001 topped w/ The Body Shop Shimmer Buds e/s in Golden Dandelion as highlight. Same colors were used on the lower lashline.

The Body Shop Eye Definer in Black. Maybelline Volum' Express Hypercurl in Very Black.

This shot is miraculously clear but it didn't quite capture the navy on the outer lid.
Ew, there's a speck of e/s on my contacts! HAHA.

A final look at the look!
I'm using Smashbox Lip Enchancing Gloss in Pout, by the way.

& another pic just for lulz.
Den & me eating some sorta [washed out] fruit salad tarts yesterday.

Den, Me, Erika. Just bumming it out. So unflattering.

& I mean reaaally bumming. & unflattering (HAHA!)

Check out the huge siopao (meat bun) Erika's Mom had!

& that is all. I hope we didn't scare you. Love you. Bye.

  4. Haha yesss it is super cute!!! I'm not really into kitschy sorta things but I do love this toaster :)
    Vegemite, hmmm how to even explain!! It is like a black, salty kinda spread that's very popular here in Aus. It goes great on sandwhiches and toast and crackers and things! Okay that sounds totally gross but it is fantastic :)
    Wow I didn't realise Fashion Mews was so hard to get!!!!

  5. Congrats on your first FOTD Look! :)

  6. I love the eyeshadow, it's so pretty on you. You're so beautiful with the natural look!

  7. your eyes are soo pretty! ^^ and that bun is hugeeee looks delicious though lol

  8. yehey! first fotd hoping for more.. :P cute!

  9. Hi Kaz, thanks for stoppin by my page :) your fotd is lovely, looking fwd to more fotd from you!
    RYC, yoga can be quite expensive to do I admit, I usually swim or jog too, but I just wanted to try so I joined ;) but jogging is a cool exercise too :D and no no, I dont always eat out after exercise lolz it just happen that I need to do a catch up with a friend thats why we went out for dinner ;)

  10. prettyy!!hindi siya siopao eh... SIOPAO!!!!! hahaha

  11. your fotd is nice. looks great on you. :)

    i'm using a cybershot as well. what i'm doing is i refrain myself from using flash because it totally washes out the colors. i use white balance and the program or the magnify set-up for my camera settings. (i hope i'm making sense it's in your cam's settings. i hope it's the same for your t7)

    and that siopao is huge. i bought one before. :) i should try buying the hungree burger in our area and post it in my blog. the size is enormous!!!! :)

  12. aww thanks for the comment! And good job on your first FOTD! I'm not too sure what setting, but try your lighting! Maybe sunlight would capture the true colors much better. ISO setting too...

  13. I'm sorry i meant MACRO setting... NOT ISO setting!!! HELLO LOL.

  14. nice eyes. :) neutral yet sprakly. :)

    try to play with the lights in your room or find other loc in the house that'll give your eyes better focus. :) it may not all be in the cam. :)

    that is one big siopao! :)

  15. nice FOTD, looking forward to more

  16. Sooo cute!!

  17. love the eye makeup! ;-)
