FOTD | À La Gatsby

Saturday, May 11, 2013


Friday's face was (kind of) inspired by the Great Gatsby. It's one of my favourite books. I watched the movie last night & I loved it!

Back to the makeup... I've been keeping my skin au naturel. I went for a CO2 Laser Treatment on Monday so I'm letting my skin breathe & recoup.

After moisturizing, I applied a light dusting of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light, and a little bit of concealer under the eyes. 

The eyes are fairly neutral. I used the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded as a base, a couple shades from the Naked Palette (Buck, Sidecar & Half Baked) on the lid and a slightly winged liner using Lancome's Art Liner. I probably should have just left them bare. My allergies have been acting up this week and it doesn't take much to irritate them.

On my cheeks I lightly applied the Burberry Light Glow in No.5 Blossom. It's a beautiful coral & it very natural on. Burberry blushes in general are so silky and smooth.  Lastly, on my lips I'm wearing the retro matte red MAC RiRi Woo, which I just reviewed here.

Have a wonderful weekend, loves! Who else is planning to see Gatsby? x

  8. CO2 Laser Treatment is a form of skin resurfacing. The laser basically burns a layer of your skin -- it can be used on targeted areas or you can get it done on your entire face (but there's a higher risk). I got it done to remove a few raised brown spots I have on my cheek area :) x
