FOTD & EOTD Neutrals Makeup Random Choosing

Hi! Beauty Gurlz, this is just a little blog post of the makeup I did this morning. It was just a random chosen products and the I was happy with the result. I posted the picture on my IG do follow me : peppermint5
So, without further ado here are the pictures first :)

These are the products that I used for my makeup today. Like, I said, it's just a random choosing of makeup that the result was amazingly neutral and almost like no - makeup makeup look.


Moisturizer : Garnier skin naturals light SPF 17 
I love this day cream, packed with vitamin C in the form of lemon essence and it's a light cream not too thick.

Eye moisturizer : ELF daily moisture stick
I love, love, love this stick of a gem (thank you Emily of beauty broadcast for  introducing this). So moisturizing, makes applying my corrector and concealer smooth without getting in lines.

Face primer : Pixi flawless beauty primer in No. 1 even skin
Smooth application that gives a subtle luminosity to my face without making it too shiny.
                                                Foundation : Almay skin complexion in naked
Love this liquid foundie, evens my skin and has a light to medium coverage to my blemishes and a plus, it helps heals my pimples.

Corrector: It's actually a mixture of three concealer that I did. They are NYX concealer in a jar in orange, 
Rice powder company concealer stick in ivory and Milani secret conver concealer cream in warm beige
and included in the picture is the Covergirl illuminator concealer in #725
All of the concealers are creamy and light. They have this pinkish and yellowish tone that really corrects my
dark under eye circles.

Undereye concealer : Covergirl + Olay concealer balm in fair/light
OMG! I love this concealer. One of my holy grail concealer. So, creamy and light. It glides smoothly and it doesn't tug my undereye skin.

Facial concealer : Wet n Wild coverall concealer stick in light
Another one of my holy grail concealer. Need I to say more? Hahaha....

Undereye setting powder : ELF High Definition undereye setting powder
At first, I was scared of using this as a setting powder to my undereye because there's a ton of shimmers in the powder but if you apply it, shimmers become minimal and it gives a luminous effect without giving a raccoon eye look.

Face powder : Everyday Minerals Intensive medium 
Great for setting your foundation without giving cakeyness on your face.

All over bronzer : The Body Shop baked bronzer in glow
A rediscover gem. If you look at the pan, there's shimmer but I always apply this on the tops of my cheekbones because it gives my pale yellow face a lovely glow like J. Lo glow heehee

MAC beauty powder : In her own devices (A sad to say a limited edition from MAC Venomous villain collection)
For those fair skin Gurlz, this one product (if you have this one - hello MAC I am talking to you. Do make this as a permanent line or please re-promote this) is good for contouring that doesn't make you look like an oompa-loompa but a light shadow at the back  of your cheeks for a perfect face shape.

Blush : MAC cremeblend blush in something special and MAC MSF in porcelain pink on top.
Love them and that's it. I can't put them in words how I love these two!  Porcelain pink was repromoted early this year in their Apres Chic collection. 

Face Highlight : Wet n Wild color icon bronzer in reserve your cabana
A great subtle drugstore highlight dupe of Lorac spotlight.

Setting Spray : Vanilla & Co. Witch Hazel beauty tonic
I just saw this bottle online and after having a couple of testing I fell in love with. Became my holy grail setting spray ever since. I discovered this last year and this cheap drugstore bottle is a one, h%ll of a GEM! A good alternative to those high end products.

Brows : Maybelline great lash clear mascara (sad to say this is also a gem that's not sold here but you can buy this on at a cheaper price). ELF eyebrow kit in light (LOVE this kit, been using this every single day as you can see I have hit the pan of the wax and there's a dent on the powder)

Lid concealer/corrector : Rice powder company concealer stick in yellow and NYX eyeshadow base in white.
Both of them evens the darkness and discoloration of my lids and it prepares for my eyeshadow application as well.

Eyelid Primer : Too faced shadow insurance
One of my favorite lid primer aside from ELF eye primer, Lime crime candy eye primer and Urban Decay primer potion. You need to shade or gently press the tube a couple of time to mix the product because it separates though.
Eyeshadows : Loreal infallible eyeshadow in bronzed taupe and iced latte and
The Body Shop shimmer waves in bronze
I love bronze! Been using them for quite often especially when I am in a hurry.

Eyeshadow : Milani baked shadow in bronze doll 
Thank you Katie (TheKatieab - youtube) for introducing to me this gem. I use this as my overall transition color. Gives my eye makeup an oomph!
Eyelash curler : The face shop eyelash curler (I love this, just love this thing! period!!! hwahahaha)
Eyeliner : Tony Moly perfect eye eyeliner in tear beige
This reminds me of MAC's I get no kick eyeliner that I missed buying so I can't compare them to you sorry Gurlz. I love this product. My holy grail eyeliner. I apply this on my waterline in every eye makeup and even on my tutorials. I also use this even I'm not wearing any eye makeup, brightens my eyes and makes you look that you had a long beauty sleep!
Mascara : Avon super shock max in black
One of my fave mascara! Pixiwoo sisters introduce me to this.
Eyelash Topcoat : Etude House O' M' Eye lash top coat
I have watery eyes sometimes and mostly I rubbed my eyes and I have a stubborn lashes that it tends to make my mascara smudge eventhough I set it with a powder eyeshadow. A big gem to those who have smudge problems. This is an answer to your dilemma.

Lips: Revlon super lustrous lipstick in demure (I love the shade)
The Body shop Lip balm in setsuma shimmer (a big fan of lip balms)
NYX lipliner in nude pink
The Body shop Lily Cole lip gloss in go naked (at first I was not a fan of glosses but The Body Shop make my mind change otherwise)

That is it Beauty Gurlz, I must admit I was surprised and quite impressed. I played with it just by picking those products that I don't usually use on a daily day basis since, I have my monthly target pan project that I need to complete. :)
Thank you for reading this post and hope to talk to you soon. God Bless. Bye.
