FOTD: First Date Makeup Look!

I’m the type of procrastinating, indeed. I decided to join this makeup competition held by XiaoVee’s blog just now. Phew! Glad that I could make it on time.

The competition is about creating a look that you will wear for your first date. To be very honest with all of you, ahem, I never went with this look for my first date *runs away* I wore FUCHSIA lips that day LOL!! But yeah, not all Mars creatures could accept hot pink. So neutral might be good, you might want to pick for nude and neutral color like what I wear in this look...or maybe I was just lucky that day to date that weird Mars creature. One in a thousand case, I just don’t know XD

Back to topic, well this look is so easy to re-create. The main focus(es) of this look are luscious lashes, and blushing cheeks, which is very subtle and almost not captured well in pictures. Sigh. No dramatic eye makeup, I only made the eyeliner a little bit winged for cute looking eyes. For the lips? Some men find nude and glossy lips juicier to kiss (ahem, kids. Close your eyes for this part and, keep reading. Hush hush) so well, don’t over top your lips with gloss! Some find it greasy, tho. Be careful with gloss on windy days outdoor date too. You don’t want the gloss smears all over your cheeks. Gross.
No falsies! If you want the drama, make it happen with mascara. Yep, my lashes are the focal point of this look, I want to mesmerize guys with innocent stare. Beware guys, I am quite dangerous with those lashes.

For the complexion, I keep it light and glowy, natural looking. I don’t want to over-conceal my imperfections, creating cakey and heavy looking layers all over my face. Nay! Bold lips or dramatic eye makeup are still tolerable to some Mars creatures, but cakey foundation? MEH EVEN GIRLS WOULD BE TURNED OFF. Big NO!

So what do you think about this look? Do you think, ahem, I should stick to nude, neutral lips or should I make one more look using bold lips for you to re-create on your first date? LOL~
