Frothy Frothy Lace

This is a look inspired by the clean freshness of Japanese ads.

It’s a wide-eyed innocent look I’m after, to go with this sweet lace dress I’m wearing. The thing is so soft I always feel like burying my face in it.

Also, I take back everything bad I’ve ever said about matte pale pink blushes. I ranted about them previously about not being warm enough, and being too artificial doll-like.  I mean, I usually use brown-based blushes like MAC Warm Soul and Benefit Rockateur. If I want to switch it up I’d use an orange based coral, MAC Ripe for Love. And if I really have to use a pink, I use my strawberry-red MAC Gleefulor MAC Born to Love which is a pink based coral.

I was already a little apprehensive as I dipped my brush into the blush but as I patted on the pastel pink onto my face – oh wow.

It yielded just the right amount of colour to give me a very slight flush that looked all-natural. I am upset my camera does not capture the colour so well because loading up more blush for it to turn up would ruin that natural look, but trust me when I say that it’s lovely.

Makeup used:

Eyes

1) I used an angled liner brush and drew a very small cat eye (kitten eye really) with Urban Decay Busted  (satin deep cool brown) and smudged it with a pencil brush to get a smoky brown haze. I used the same eyeshadow to line my lower lashline.
2) Using the same angled liner brush, I applied Urban Decay Blackout (matte black) and lined the lower lashes in cat eye again, and then smudged that out. This creates a beautiful smoky gradient.
3) Then I used L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tube Mascara on my upper and lower lashes

Face

1) I used the L’Oreal Resurfacing Primer as a base
2) I then applied Maybelline BB Watergel on top
3) I used L’Oreal Baby Blossom True Match Blush (matte powder pink) on the apples of my cheeks
4) I then used MAC Warm Soul to contour my cheeks (I have been neglecting this baby since buying Benefit Rockateur and I am sorry)
5) I dusted Hourglass Mood Light Ambient Lighting Powder as a setting powder, dusted all over the face

Lips 

1) I used OCC Clockwork (cream orange based coral) on the lips
2) Benefit Coralista (juicy sheer pink coral gloss) on top
