Go out look + product reviews

Okay. So I went out with my group of buddies today so I decided to put on some makeup. Since I'm going out with a group of boys, I didn't want to go crazy with makeup. Well guys don't really appreciate them! They generally don't like any non-earth toned colors. They'd think you look like an alien or some weirdo if you wear green shadow for example. Then thinking that you might be a chicken if you wear blue shadow (Just saying). 

So I pulled out my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. YES! I got naked 2 palette as my birthday present this year! However, I've not really been experimenting it. In fact, I finally got Sleek storm palette too - which I've been using quite a bit.

But okay. So here's the look I've created.

Foundation: Revlon Photo Ready Foundation - 006 Medium Beige
I used to love this, but then I lost it while I was travelling overseas. Never Bought it again until my recent trip to Penang. Its only $18+ in the Budget terminal in sg!! I had to get it again - and I fell in love again. This foundation contains a SPF 20, but it photographs beautifully. It contains glitters but it is so flattering even on my not-so-smooth-face.

Cheeks: Bourjois Baked Blush - 16 Rose
This is one of my favorite cheek products, but I almost forgot I own this! It gives me such a healthy glow. The little bit of shimmer it contains gives me a very subtle high lighting effect as well.

Cheeks: Canmake blush duo - 01
I used the pink color in this duo only at the apple of my cheek to give it a little  bit more pink since the Bourjois one is kind of sheer. You do not need to do this if you have pinky cheeks. I'm really pale so I needed that little bit of help.

Brows: Rimmel Eye Pencil - Hazel
My favorite brow pencil - forever. Its cheap and good. No complains.

Eyeshadow Primer: Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Eyes Shadow: Urban Decay Naked Palette 2
All over the lid: Suspect
Centre of the lid: Chopper
Inner corner: Booty call
Outter corner:  Snake bite + Busted
Bottom lid: Snake Bite + Busted
Brow Bone: Foxy

Eyeliner: Milani Liquify Pencil - Black
Lined the top lash line and half way across the bottom.

Mascara: Tarte  Amazonian Clay Mascara
This mascara has great staying power, and it is really easy to remove too. That is why I love it. Amazonian clay is really good for you as well, so that is a BIG plus! :D

Lips: EOS lipbalm + Canmake cream rouge lipstick - 03

Staying power:
I took the below 2 photos at 10pm, which is around 11 hours after wearing the makeup. I did not touch up at all. No loose powder, no lipstick/lipbalm. Obviously my lipstick is 100% gone since I ate like 3 meals. Haha. But the eye makeup held up pretty well! :D

Yups, this is me with my specs. I don't really leave home without specs nowadays. It just makes me life so much easier, and I never have to worry about sand going into my eyes while I wear contacts. :)

I did 8 different looks using urban decay 15th anniversary palette, and I'm hoping to do a few different looks using urban decay naked 1 and 2 palette. Hopefully I'd be able to show case at least 2 looks from each palette by the end of next week! :D

Anyway, here's the links to the 8 different looks via 15th anniversary palettes if you're interested! :D
