FOTD + OOTD: Yummy Umami

This is not how I looked like, after sampling one (or three) Umami burgers. It just so happens that I’m prone to making such faces. The burgers were quite good, actually, but that’s another tale for another time. Angry Face of the Day. This is just here because it shows off the mauvey-ness of my makeup the most. On my face: Face: Ahava Light Foundation, The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Pore Minimiser, Guerlain Météorites (Perles d’Azur) Eyes: Benefit Lemon Aid, The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Concealer, bareMinerals A Vision in Velvet (Satin Gold, Velvet Mauve, Velvet Vanilla), Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura Painting Liner (Blackish Satin Purple), The Body Shop Brow Kit, Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus 12 Cheeks: NARS Illuminator (Orgasm), Revlon Color Stay Mineral BLush (Roseberry) Lips: NARS Sheer Lipstick (Vendanges) This was my outfit for the day! As you can see, I am quite an awkward individual (with funny proportions), which explains the surprise displayed by people who know me in real life, upon learning about this recent beauty …

FOTD + OOTD: Transition

What I wore to my mom’s exhibit: Shirt from Primark, skinnies from Zara, Clarks Desert Grace, leather bag from a market.

FOTD & OOTD: November 6

Behold, my Face of the Day! Get it? No? Oh, okay. I was rushing out of the house so I only had time to swipe a light wash of bareMinerals’ The Happy Place over my lids, put on NARS blush in Orgasm, and Guerlain Météorites in Perles d’Azur. I had to put my lipstick (Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited in Celebrity Beige) on in the car, on the way to the MRT. Sometimes I wonder how much easier life would be if the public transport system in the Philippines was better. I think about that a lot, especially when I am in the train cars, fearing for my life and my possessions. It was a pretty busy day, so I’m glad I wore comfy things, but before I move on, please check out my necklace. It’s a release by ofakind and Brvtvs, and ever since I got it, I have rarely left the house without it. If you care, dress is from Asos, shoes are from Muji, Chambray shirt is a Sarie hand-me-down. My bag is …

FOTD: Last Sunday

An almost-week-old FOTD, which I know means like a trillion years in Internet speak. But lo! Behold my look of victory for having successfully used NARS Ramatuelle (eyeshadow trio). Also, I just really, really like this shirt, which if you care, is by Lifetime Collective over at Need Supply Co.

OOTD: Halloween

HA! The title has misled you, I know. This is not a Halloween costume, obviously. I had to put on a workday-on-Halloween outfit because I had scheduled meetings and work dates on the last day before the long weekend. I made the mistake of wearing this shirt, because I forgot how cleave-y it could be, distracted by how soft it is. However, this scarf (though actually a headband) was one of the better decisions I made that day. Pretty happy that we got to eat Yabu and watch Six Degrees of Separation from Lilia Cuntapay later that horribly sleepy day. Friendly advice, from a person who laughed the second-loudest in the theatre (Evee laughed the loudest): You should catch Lilia Cuntapay before they pull it out of cinemas! If you care: the scandalous top is from Old Navy, the jacket is from Asos, and the scarf is from Chi Chi Dee. I have no bottoms. JK, they are black Zara skinnies, and the Clarks boots from this post. Le face: Guerlain Turandot, NARS Illuminator in …
