FOTD : Cool and casual with MAC Moon's Reflection + The Opening of www.apopofkawaii.com Giveaway by Bang Bang She Shoots

I used to think that blue eyeshadows are hard to pull off. I was always concerned about ending up too flashy with blues, but it's actually all about choosing the right shade of blue.

Here is my cool and casual blue look I did yesterday! Quick and easy for daytime...


MAC Eye Shadow ~ Moon's Reflection (Veluxe Pearl) has a gorgeous texture. Goes on super smoothly and blends effortlessly. Moon's Reflection is a blue with white pearl that looks very soft against fair skin.


I have no idea why my complexion looks so ashy and ghastly here. The lighting must have gone weird... (= . =)/


Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N ~ 01 diamond as a base. Moon's Reflection allover the lid and along the lower lashline. Blended Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color ~ GY 913 (dark grey) along the upper lashline and on the outer corner to add some depth.

Lastly, lined the waterline with Guerlain Eye Pencil ~ Khol Me Ivory 00 to make the eyes look brighter and more open.


Again Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer ~ 257 Bikini Peach!


The pigmentation is very light, so your natural lip color will affect the color of Bikini Peach a lot. On my naturally pigmented lips, Bikini Peach turns out being a nude pinkish peach.



I really had the hardest time taking a good close up of Bikini Peach on my lips. Still not happy with this picture, but well...


Yay, doesn't Moon's Reflection match my shirt? Hehe... ;)

And I love your hair too!

Crystal said...

Cute look! I really like you with silver/blue shadows!

LittoMokaa said...

Love the look! It's really soft and subtle! Btw I love Guerlain's Khol pencil in Ivory! :D

Catherine said...

Ohhhh Moon's Reflection is sooo beautiful! I love how you lined your eyes with the ivory liner too - I'll have to try that sometime! It really opens up your eyes! I haven't worn any soft blues in a really long time...

miss wiggle said...

I haven't found a blue that works for me. :(

But you look so chic in blue! Moon Reflection is definitely a perfect match for your shirt. I wouldn't wear Moon Reflection, but I'd totally wear your shirt!

Tracy said...

Oh Jess, the blue looks so pretty on u!
By the way, after seeing your bikini peach swatches, I was suddenly feeling 'desperate' to get it and it ran out all over singapore except this one shopping centre where nobody really pays attention to. So I got the last one in Singapore! Soooo Happy!!!

Jess said...

LittoMokaa:
Yay, Guerlain Eye Pencil ~ Khol Me Ivory is my hg 'white' eyeleiner for the waterline, because it is so soft, and looks very natural.

Tracy:
Ohh, I'm so glad you got the last one! Hope you enjoy your Bikini Peach as much as I do! ;)

What a beautiful look :) I am always afraid of blues too! Something about it seems flashy :p But I think this blue on you is very pretty. Light pastel colors look great on fair skinned gals like yourself :) Nothing looks more radiant than a soft blue in a blue shirt! :) yes, it totally matches :)

i find you suit cool toned colours really well!

How do you find the lasting power of the Guerlain pencil on the waterline? I am still looking for one to open up my eyes since the MAC Chromagraphic pencil was a big fail.

Diane said...

I think you look pretty in blue. Anytime you're fair with dark hair you can pull off colors like blue, purple, and green. Great FOTD =)

DSK said...

You look absolutely adorable in blue!

Tammy said...

Yay! More blues! :D I think the look is lovely on you. Btw, you have such dolly-looking lips! Heheh ~ <3

izumi said...
