FOTD - RUST for Spring

Whaddup everyone? 

Hope you guys enjoyed your weekend =) It's the LONG WEEKEND here in Sydney - that means an extra day for sleeping in!!! *yays* Weather has been pretty crap (think: wet and cold. ew!) since Saturday and will probably be like that till the end of the week.  Boo! On the bright side, I managed to catch up on my very much needed rest thanks to the hectic weekends I had in the past two weeks, and an absolutely hammered Friday. Spent my Saturday catching up with a friend and did some shopping and spent all Saturday night and yesterday finishing off my Asian Drama - Summer Desire


It was actually pretty good,as the plot was something different and totally unpredictable unlike the other 48203892380234 Asian dramas and well, eye candy too LOL. How sizzling hot is Huang Xiao Ming (the main cast at the top of the poster)? =P


ANYWAYS,

This is the FOTD I had for the Nuffnang Tea Party last Sunday. =)

As we are in the middle of the spring in the land down under, coral is the colour to go! 

I don't really know how's this look RUST For Spring - but it just came to my mind. So yeh... forgive the lame and gay title for this post LOL


Here are the steps on how I created the look:

STEP 1: Apply a creamy base all over your lid and I am using MAC Coral Crepe Paint Pot here. Don't forget to prime your eyes with your HG eyeshadow primer if you have oily lids.
STEP 2: Using the RUST colour from NYX Trio Eyeshadow in TS12, apply it all over your lid.
STEP 3: Then, using GOLDEN from the same NYX TS12 Trio, apply it along your crease area and the outer corner of your eyes.
STEP 4: Give your eyes a better dimension by applying WALNUT BRONZE from the same NYX TS12 Trio at the outer V of your eyes.

THEN, highlight your brow bone; fill in your brows, line your eyes, apply falsies and finish it off with a coat of your favourite mascara.

PRODUCTS I USED:
Platinum Pink from NYX Eyeshadow Trio in TS27
Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Eyeliner in Black
Loreal Volume Million Lashes in Brown
Random Japanese Falsies I got from Malaysia a while back ago
ELF Eyebrow Kit in Medium

I also lined my under lash line with Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil in Gold to give a subtle pop.

On my FACE
Dermabland Cover Creams in Natural Beige
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Silky Beige
MAC MSF in Stereo Rose (In The Groove Collection)
Bronzer from Milani Sunset Duo in Sunset City (which is my FAVOURITE bronzer atm)
Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether (to give a dewy glow)

On my LIPS
MAC Lipstick in Jazzed (In The Groove Collection) 
(Nic Nic was able to tell from the photo in my previous post! :D)

Love the combination of corals and peach tones for spring time!!! Who's with me?

My hair colour is a tad too dark for spring/summer and I am thinking of going lighter and brown for the first time! I have always gone with mahogany cos I love dark red hair!
Should I?  

It actually looks like I have ombre-ed my hair with brown ends. =)


What is your favourite spring makeover? 
New hairstyle? New hair colour? New nails? Let me know! :)



xoxo,
A

The rust is gorgeous, I've been really into using bronzer for eye shadow recently, I'm thinking it's going to be great with my bottle tan this summer!

Why would you say that your title was gay? I'm pretty sure it isn't attracted to titles of the same gender as it.
