Just yesterday, my brain decided it couldn’t deal with any more nuggets of information about classical liberalism and whatnot so it decided to crash on me. Just as well, headed for a trip downtown with the girls to have a good ol’ western style dinner by the Okanagan Lake. We were lucky enough to grab a window seat, where we could see the sun setting over the Okanagan Lake. Lady Luck was showering me with love yesterday. My hidden double eyelid finally decided to come out from hiding and show itself in all its splendour. That, coupled with the fact that I haven’t had the chance to dabble with makeup led me to experiment with eye makeup. If you didn’t already know, I am one of the biggest anti-fans of eye makeup. I love how it looks on other people but I have a bad tendency to rub my eyes/sweat it off/simply too lazy. Nevertheless, I attempted a look so subtle no one would be able to tell even if i rubbed some of it off.
Pretty natural yes? Here’s what I did:
- Dermatologist-approved sunscreen
- Etude House Precious Mineral Magic Any Cushion SPF34/PA++ in Magic Peach
- TonyMoly New Crystal Lovley Eyes in 03 Just a light dusting over the lids, the inner corner of the eyelid, and slightly past the outer edge of the eye.
- Rimmel London Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in 213 In The Nude. On the lower eye to give the illusion of aegyo-sal. For a definition click here.
Revlon Colourstay Moisture Stain in 020 Rio Rush Apply it first onto the side of your hand, then use your pinkie finger to apply it for a more natural and less botox-shiny look. Top off that sweet pink lip with a dab of the classic Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Corail Neo Neon.
A spritz of Estee Lauder’s Beautiful and DONE!
Chose a slightly more formal romper since we were going to a grill and bar but since its still a pretty low key event with a more relaxed dress code, I topped it off with an oversized denim jacket from MANGO and for a pop of colour, my trusty Old Navy crossbody. Not pictured are my crazy comfortable loafers from Staccato. Also managed to get a multipack of gorgeous rings at a steal. The midi rings are perfect as they are but also as pinky rings! Check it out: The food was amazing, the view was great, the company was exceptional. Couldn’t have asked for a better form of relaxation to gear me up for the rest of my papers. Here are the rest of the shots from the night:
Had an amazing Sunday; no better way to bathe in the splendour of Spring then with a good meal at the waterfront. It was also a wonderful way for me to be a 缩头乌龟 and escape the reality of my politics paper for a few precious hours.
Back to the grind for me. 经一番挫折，长一番见识.
