Anniversary DinnerHey lovelies! Today is just a quick post on the look I wore on Tuesday for my boyfriend and I's anniversary dinner! I am sorry if this week has been a bit "coupley" on here, it's just because my boyfriend's birthday and our yearly anniversary falls only a week apart!
For the face I used the following products:♡ NARS Sheer Glow in Fiji♡ NARS Creamy Concealer in Vanilla♡ Dabbed in with a RT Miracle Complexion Sponge♡ MUFE Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation♡ MUFE Aqua Brow in #15♡ Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, in the shade Fawn♡ MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Redhead♡ Benefit Watts Up♡ MAC Glass Slipper on the lipsAfter I dropped my Lorac Mega Pro Palette not once but twice, I stopped using it for a while in fear that I would drop it again (but also because I died a bit every time I opened it and saw the smashed shadows) but my boyfriend nagged me to go back to it, telling me "You love that palette!!!" And I'm so glad I did because I am reminded of how amazing it is and like he said, just how much I love it even if it is a bit beaten up.Lately I've really been enjoying burnt coppery shades, maybe it's the weather getting cooler but I also like how it compliments the rooty look of my hair and the color of my brows. "Sienna" is a shimmery redtoned brown that works perfectly on its own as an all over shade but still provides a beautiful and multi-dimensional look. I also used a light frosty shade for inner corners but I can't remember whether I used "Vanilla" or "Opal" or a combination of both.I didn't intend for my eyeliner to be that thick but it was just one of those things where I was having a bad eyeliner day and the more I tried to make it symmetrical, the thicker the line got but then it turned out okay and I actually liked the outcome :P We dressed up again because it's a special occasion :3 The boy went shopping for a new outfit but sneaky me, I found a dress in my wardrobe which I bought in HK 2 years ago from Forever 21 on sale *cheeky monkey emoji*
I didn't get a photo of my outfit again (good job Chloe) but I wore a citrus-colored, wrapover, mullet dress. Is there a nicer name for these kinds of dresses/skirts because it's actually a cute cut but I hate the name. I actually really like this color, might try and invest in a few more pieces of the same color.
We went for dinner at a French restaurant I love and it made me really nostalgic of the year I spent in France. I didn't take any photos because I just wanted to enjoy the night and the restaurant had pretty dim lighting anyway but it was such a lovely night.
Now I need your help! Of the few highlighters I have, the majority of them are powders with the exception of Benefit Watts Up which is not creamy enough/just too beige for my liking. I find that it looks amazing on tanner/darker complexions but on me it's pretty average.
I am currently on the lookout for a liquid/cream highlighter that will give more of a bright, gleamy glow to my cheeks rather than a bronzey/rosy hue. Also, one with more of a refined sheen rather than being overly glittery/shimmery.
Please hit me up with recommendations!
