First the layering I've been into lately involves my blushes. Okay, maybe this is not a new concept to you but for me it's revolutionary. Not too long ago, I'd walk out with a done face without any blush. Either I didn't have the time but thinking about it now, I just never paid attention.
This made my cheekbones very sad.
Then I just started introducing very neutral pinks, roses and corals. Bronzing scared me at first but at the same time I was intrigued. There was a way that I could make my face look thinner? Sign me up! Also I am pretty tan to begin with (thanks to my Filipino/Dutch-Indonesian background) so I felt like I really didn't need it. But slowly but surely my bronzing collection along with my blush collection starting multiplying like bunnies!
I also use to have a hate towards the NARS Multiple. I know that sounds blasphemous to some but I just didn't understand how to use it properly. I thought it had to be a bold and the colors were never loud enough on my skin to make any sort of difference. Until I realized that it's the hint, subtle glow that it imparts as an accent that makes it a great thing to have in your arsenal.
Now I can't seem to leave my bathroom mirror until I have at least a layer of my NARS Multiple (South Beach) and a blush popped on top of it.
Sometimes, I travel with all this crap in my work bag:
Here I am with layered cheek:
I like to dedicate my new obsession to my little sister, Tatiana. She always has fabulous cheeks and she LOVES her blush. Unless, she's running late and putting on her makeup on the morning train. Great now I got that Sheena Easton song stuck in my head. I apologize now if I got it stuck in yours too!
Second, I'm in a big bracelet phase. I would just put on my wedding bands, cute earrings and call it a day. But I have been rocking a wrist full of bracelets and I have a feeling it has something to do with my husband.
You see he's big into woodworking - he's an architect and former carpenter. Yes, he's all kinds of creative and hands on. He orginally started designing and making bookshelves until asked him a few months back if he could make a wooden bracelet for me and he's been going at it nonstop.
Here's one that I'm wearing today:
|(I love layering metal bangles with a wooden one)|
It's made from a old chopping board that he made as birthday present many years ago. This is his effort to keeping it Green!
For this bracelet and others please see his site. There are only 3 items currently but he's going to try to add more and he can also ship internationally.
So glad it's Friday, aren't you?
Any fun plans in works?
