Phew it’s been so busy these days that squeezing out time to edit photos have been proving to be a little tough hence my posts are a little more word-centric and frankly the content a little more of the ramble sort than the substantial content-packed ones I used to do. I’ll also admit that I did get a little lazy at the thought of blogging given the annoyance of deadlines and work piled up, plus just the need to relax and recharge at home these days. Oops.
Though I’m still looking to be present on here as much as I can until I get dragged off into the darkness and abyss of New Job, ha! So dramatic… I know.
So anyway, here’s another ‘stash-shopping’ look for you.
I haven’t got around to documenting more stash-shopping posts since mornings are so sluggish (and hence rushed) for me these days but here’s a look (back) at the Make Up For Ever La Boheme palette.
Flipping it (Make Up For Ever’s La Boheme palette) open after so long made me very inclined to do a champagne-peach-deep chocolate brown combo because that’s easiest and a look I know would work.
Though I decided to challenge myself a little, if you would even call this meekly act a challenge (ha), and make myself use a little of the greens in some way – anyway.
As mentioned, I don’t always plan my looks beforehand, unless it is a specific look I’m thinking to explore, so some mornings I do stare at my palette for a quick moment before realizing I don’t have time for that.
What happens after is a series of color mixing, patting, blending and hoping that whatever look it is that I am putting together would end up presentable to go out in and also would look nice once photographed else that would be a waste of a experimental morning and experimental mornings are quite precious to me!
They are the only time that I get to play around with makeup and photograph the looks because otherwise I can’t sit myself down over the weekends to spend a whole day doing up various looks and documenting it. I wish I could but unglamorous mommy-duties beckons.
So anyway, before this gets any longer, let’s have a look at the look shall we?
I started with the peach because that one is a really gorgeous color and something in me thought that pairing the aqua with it would work (on hindsight I think maybe green would be more earthy-matchy) and of course the dark chocolate brown outer-corner is a no-brainer.
It’s the darkest smokiest color in the palette and one that would lend most definition.
Though in the end I think I quite like how it turned out. It’s more cohesive in person because my camera likes to make everything stand out more in all the slightly iffy ways but even then, I think this looks quite nice!
Not a look I’ll wear often because mixing 3 different shades is too tricky for my everyday-brain but its nice now and then.
Other MUFE items I’ve used within this look is the Contour Kit that I really enjoy using though I try to save this for travel because it’s such a slim and sleek compact.
On the lips is another piece from the La Boheme collection, I believe, in the shade Folk.
There was a time I was all over this color and I can see why. It’s somewhat bold but in a Day makeup way. It hints at coral but is also a little pink. It’s quite lovely this one and I think I’m going to start using it again.
That said, I think Make Up For Ever is a brand that has many gems but yet somehow one I don’t check out often enough. Maybe because the HQ is in an area I don’t often frequent and while they have counters in Sephora, everytime I am there I always drift off to everything else and forget to take time to check MUFE out.
Though if you’re like me you can have a look at Make Up For Ever’s Collection Online to browse their offerings.
If it helps, I’ve got a promo code – ZASARA15 – for 15% off at Zalora should anything catch your eye! The code is valid till 1st May 2015.
So, that’s that, thank you so much for reading!
I was hoping that the madness at work will simmer down a little after this weekend work event but I think some other things are finding their way to the surface D:
It’s like this never-ending cycle of work but such is life, right? I only hope I can afford to spend a little more time on here before New Job starts! Spend a little time, chat a little more before a hiatus if that were to happen.
We’ll see alright? In the mean time, as always, thanks for sticking by!
