Neutral Berry FOTD: Sleek Fenberry Blush and Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick

Tuesday, December 20, 2011

Last week, I went out with my friends from University for lunch. It was a simple lunch, so I just did a simple FOTD (Face of the Day), using some of my latest products. In particular, I wanted to use some of the new products I've been using lately, in particular the super awesome Sleek Makeup Fenberry Blush from the Berry Collection, as well as the new Maybelline Color Sensational Lipsticks.

Altogether, I think it was a good look, although it was neutral and boring. This is also the kind of makeup I wear every Monday to Friday to my office. So yes, despite my awesome colourful eyeshadow stash, on an average day I wear barely any eyeshadow. Sad life, I know.

Here's the breakdown for the look.

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (on undereye area)
Prescriptives Anywear Makeup Stick (on blemishes on face)
Transparent Loose Powder - I use a 50-50 mix of Pond's Magic Powder in Sweetie Pink and pure silica powder, I got mine from Coastal Scents
Sleek Makeup Fenberry Blush

NARS Abyssinia (all over lid)
Apple Super Lash Mascara
Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Rockstar

Maybelline Yummy Plummy Color Sensational Lipstick
Hello Kitty Rosette Treatment Lip

I liked the combination of the Sleek Fenberry blush and the Maybelline Yummy Plummy lipstick. The colours look a little more intense than in the photo - I swear in real life it looks a little more rosy, especially on the cheeks. And yes, I know my undereye bags are epic. This is AFTER they've been covered up partially. It's much worse when I wake up in the morning.

Also, another of my makeup application quirks is that I don't usually use foundation, because it usually doesn't do any favours for my blemish-prone skin. But I do use concealer to cover up spots I have, and set with transluscent powder, which is whatever loose powder (I'm not picky, I go for cheap stuff that wouldn't break me out), and silica powder, for better oil control. This mixture works like a charm, since silica powder alone can be too drying and leave a white cast if you're not careful, and just loose powder alone wears off after awhile. I totally recommend this for anyone with moderate oily skin who doesn't need a lot of coverage.


  1. I LOVE that lip color - and your skin looks flawless!

  2. I really have to try that lipstick. I think it'll look fab on my deep brown skin.

  3. The blush and lipstick looks really nice on you.

  4. the blush looks v natural and pretty on you! (:

  5. Can I ask you which shade you purchased in the Kevin Aucoin sensual skin enhancer?

    1. @Anonymous: Hi there, I use shade SX 05.
