FOTD #2 (with bonus!!!)

So aside from making blog posts with titles that rival an infomercial (call in the next 10 minutes and you'll get another blog post, absolutely free!!!) - I finally got to uploading the pictures I took for another "face of the day" post. They are from last night before I went out with some friends. Surprisingly, I managed to get the picture right on the first try, which I was proud of because it usually takes me about 10 takes to not look like I'm about to be arrested.

So without further ado, I present you with:

Face: Chanel Pro Lumiere, MAC MSF Natural Medium Dark, Clarins Copper Sun bronzer, Clinique Peony blush/highlight

Eyes: Estee Lauder Silver Leaf, MAC Satin Taupe, Brule and Print, MAC Beauty Marked on the lash line. Lancome "le stylo waterproof" black eyeliner on waterline, MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack on upper lash line.
Mascara: my usual medley of L'Oreal Voluminous carbon black and Diorshow waterproof

Lips: Rimmel East End Snob lipliner, MAC Creme D'Nude lipstick, MAC She Loves Candy lipglass

BONUS: my first "outfit of the day" post... here's an idea of what I sported out last night:

It all started with me wanting to wear my bright yellow shoes, so to tie everything in, I came up with this concoction of silk button up mustard coloured shirt underneath my favourite blazer. I opted for my American Apparel "shiny" leggings. I think I need a new pair because mine are starting to lose some of the shine around the knees and ankles - has this happened to anyone else?
Sadly my self-timed photo skills are mediocre and I was unable to capture the shoes - my room is pretty small and if I backed up any more I'd be out in the hallway.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and if you are a fan of Gossip Girl, tune in tomorrow (monday) for a really awesome episode. We get them a night early here in Canada and I cried like a baby at the cute mom moments and at Chuck's awesomeness! Take care, everyone, and thanks for reading!


  1. I don't know what is cuter: the hair, the outfit, the lips, the eyes...!!! xx

  2. Gorgeous makeup and hair :)

    When I saw the first photo I was thinking you should also post what you wore too as it looked pretty and then I scrolled down and there it was!!

    I am downloading Gossip Girl now - cannot wait to watch it!

  3. I love your makeup and the outfit!! You look so cute!! I will definitely watch gossip girl tonight!! I'm a big fan of it!! ;)

  4. I'm sooo jealous!! Your skin looks flawless, your hair looks great and your eyes look amazing!

  5. you look GORGEOUS! Love the make up & the hair but love the outfit even more :) xx

  6. Looks awesome!
    How do you like the Estee Lauder silver leaf?I just bought it myself.

  7. Thanks everyone!
    @lipstickrules I like it so far! only thing is it dries really fast so I have to be quick with the blending. i find that the mac 217 brush works well for a light diffused application :)

    lasted longer than paintpots!

  8. I love your make up and outfit look here, you look uber stylish! I'm a huge fan of a silver eye and this eyeshadow looks perfect for me (although I have many shades of silver already) I might just go out and buy that Estee Lauder one you're wearing. Gorgeous!

  9. I can only express a word of thanks! Nothing else. Because with the content on this blog you can add knowledge. Thank you very much for sharing this information. AvriqAvriq India
