Lip Diary 4: Peachy!

This morning as I was going through my lipstick collection, I thought to myself how long it was since I even worn something in the shade of peach. So I grabbed one of my old favorites, Motives lipstick in Coral light and used it for the day. But I didn’t feel like I was done so I put some NYX lipgloss in Nude Pink on top of it.

Here are the lip products that I used. They are great especially with Summer is already here. Plus in style-standards, we’re welcoming the Spring collection.




Wing it to Lift it

Lately, I’ve noticed a lot of fashion spreads where models with the popular cat’s eye makeup or winged eyeliner to some.

This eye makeup style is one of my favorites because it’s such a classic, it was common look during the 1950’s and think about Ancient Egypt and Cleopatra, it’s very wearable whether at night or during the day, it would just rely on the intensity of the “wing” or how sharp and how far you would extend the pointed tip.

The Backup Powder

I’ve always been an NC30 skin tone (in Mac Studio Fix powder equivalent), but summer came and the beach beckoned me to enjoy the cool water. Lo and behold, my skin was sunburned. I was really tan, and now close to NC43.

Good thing, I have a darker shade powder I sometimes use for contouring. My Motives by Loren Ridinger in Honey saved me from buying another powder that I’m only going to use for a few months.








The packaging of this powder is heavier compared to MAC’s studiofix. And instead of using the thin powder puff that comes with Motives’ powder, i either use my kabuki brush from Body Shop or my retractable brush from Muji, which I also carry in my purse.
