FOTD – Nars Eyeshadow Palette and OOTD

May 16, 2011

The FOTD and OOTD were from yesterday. I had a wonderful time celebrating a special occasion with my family at an amazing Restaurant – the Quay. I basically wear the same makeup to work everyday, so special occasions like this allow me to have more fun with my makeups.  I decided to use my new Nars eyeshadow palette (reviewed here), the rest were chosen to complement the eye look.


Finished Look


I was bored with my fringe, so I pinned my fringe back for the night.


Face Products Used:

Face: Guerlain Radiance concentrate with Pure Gold Makeup Base was applied before the Becca Luminous Skin Colour foundation.

Cheeks: Nars the Multiple Tint in Turks & Caicos layered with Nars Blush in Luster.

Highlight: Shiseido Natural Finish Cream Concealer to highlight my under eye areas, then set it with Benefit powerflage . Shu Uemura Glow as highlighter on my cheekbones and nose bridge.

Note* to my dear reader who has requested for a review of Guerlain Radiance makeup base, I promise it is coming up soon!


Eyes and Lips:

Eyes: Primed my eyes with Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base.  Nars Silk Road was applied all over my eyelids, then Nars Brumes was applied along my upper and lower lash lines. Koji Ultrafine was used to do the winged out eyeliner look, then finish it with falsies and Fairy Drop volumising mascara on my lower lashes.

Lips: Nars Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Hopi


False Eyelashes Used: my favorite style now!


Closer look at the lashes:


The weather has been so cold lately, I just wanted to cocoon myself inside my soft quilt. I rely on my Jill Stuart coat that has brought warmth to me in the winters.

Hi, Reika. I just stumbled onto your blog–great stuff you have on here! I was actually writing to know what shade you were using for the Becca Luminous Skin Colour. I’m also an Asian NC20 like you, and I’m in the U.S. where it is difficult to find Becca products–I have to resort to buying their products online. If you could let me know what shade you’re wearing (and how well you think it matches you), that would be great!

Hi Susan, thanks for stopping by 🙂
My shade is cashmere, it matches me perfectly. Just letting you know my thought on Becca Luminous Skin Colour, it is extremely sheer, has no coverage whatsoever.

Thank you, Reika! 🙂

Hi Reika,

I’m also new to your blog but I must say I’m loving each and every post! Your style of writing is so neat and easy to follow, and you’re definitely so good at what you do! Can I ask what brand of false eyelashes that you posted on here. It looks amazing on you and would like to know where you got it from :). Thanks!

Hi Alicia, thank you 🙂 This post was done a long time ago and the lashes I used was just by a random Asian brand, so I really don’t remember the brand name. But it’s quite a common style, I am sure you can find it with other brands 🙂
