Spring Look: Marshmallows

Y'all know that I'm not uberly psyched about this spring's colorful pastels (love colors, hate pastels) but I think this look turned out to be quite alright. I quite like it. What do you think?

No particular inspiration. I just wanted test out my new Daiso eyeshadow palette (will show soon) which has this friggin gorgeous, yet pigmented, shimmery teal blue. I also tried using Anastasia Brow Powder Duo sample, given to me by Jen. It shaded in my brows softly yet with definition and that's not a good thing because I'm tempted. For the time being, USD22 is just way too much for me to spend on eyebrow powder.

Read on for close-ups and description of items used.

The colors look more appealing in real life. Bleh.

Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie (finishing...)

look really nice. a hint of pink and turquoise really perk up the spring theme...

Gwen said...

Hey connie! I think this is a great monring/school look, it's looks really fresh. I think it will help open up tired eyes too. It's also easy to do for makeup amateurs like me XD. By the way, i love your eyebrows! I went to the waxing salon in one utama to get mine tweezed but it still looked really uneven, so i was wondering where did you do yours? And could you pos up a tutorial for applying eyebrow powder? I always either put too little or too much, it looks really weird. I will really appreaciate that. Anyways Thanks for sharing you FOTD, hoping to see more soon. Once again sorry for the loh-soh post again >__<;; all my post are all very long. EEK gotta stop typing.

SUPER pretty, I love the combo of colors and the blending you did... amazing! :]

gio said...

Love this! It's so pretty and the blending is amazing!

jojoba said...

so youthful and pretty!!! the colours look like my Clarins spring palette. you did well!

ps: I know you don't entertain 88 palette issue but I just want to let you know that your blog got me lemming it and I finally got one coming in few weeks' time. :)

Connie said...

Erny: Aww, thanks! That's sweet :)

Traclyn: The "pink" is actually red that's been blended to look pink. lol. As simple as it looks, this look took LOADS of blending to get the color that soft.

Gwen: Yep. it looks refreshing even after long hours. Don't mean to burst your bubble but it's slightly more difficult that it looks. But then again, it was probably cuz I was just going along with the look and didn't really expect the outcome.

My latest brows were done at Shu Uemura. I've been meaning to make a how-to for brows, liner and mascara but I'm yet to do it. Still looking for the right opportunity

Alex: Thanks :)

Connie said...

Fuz: Thanks :) I like how the colors turned out too

Gio: Thanks, sweets. Blending was hell!

Jojoba: Thanks :D Hope you'll love your palette as much as I love mine

Askmewhats said...

Sweetie, super lovely looK! And Can I say? Your hair is growing!!! Wow so fast! :) I love how cool you look! you'll be the "cool/hip chick!" :D

Kate said...

Hey Connie, I just started reading your blog a month or so ago. Loving this look! So soft and pretty.

ohmypetticoat said...

Hi Connie! This is by far one of your best look yet. Will you be doing a tutorial?

prettybeautiful said...

love your look and i am so so envy :( i wish i knew how to scribble my eye properly :( or paint some make up on face.

[ miss hazel ] said...

this look is so pretty!!!

lol..ur MM skin lingerie is finishing dy..I bought one after reading ur review on it and I'd only use twice.......hahaha!

pIGgy said...

Love it! :) your eyebrows are great!

Connie said...

Nikki: Hee hee. Thanks! Yep! It's getting pretty long. I can even tie it up now.

Kate: Thanks :) Hope to see more of you

ohmypetticoat: I'm flattered! Thank you :) I'll try to do a tutorial but no promises that I'll get it done exactly. The look was somewhat accidental (happens) and the blending played a big role in getting look more than the eyeshadow colors itself.

Connie said...

Pretty: Thank you.. practice la. Sure can

Hazel: Thanks :) That's because I use the MJ skin lingerie everytime I use foundation which is about 5 days a week. lol

Piggy: Thanks :)

Alex. said...

Gosh Connie you make everything look so simple and effortless lol.

Tine said...

I agree with the rest, you really make these looks look effortless. But then again practice practice practice, eh? :)

I really like how you do the wings on the corners of your eyes. I can't seem to get mine right :(

Paint Me Gorgeous said...
