♡ FOTD: Neutral Soft Smokey Eyes (Plus Mini Reviews!)

Hello everyone, hope you all have been doing well! =)

I’m doing a FOTD post because I felt like posting something different. I went for a more casual, natural look today using the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette as the main focus!


Products used:

♡ Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation SPF 20 in 200 Soft Beige
♡ Mizon BB Snail Repair Cream (Review)
♡ Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light
♡ Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo
♡ Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in #13 Peach Choux Wafers
♡ Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Medium Brown
♡ Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
♡ Bobbi Brown Long-wear Gel Eye Liner in Sepia Ink
♡ Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
♡ Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in #5 Juicy Peach

I have been running low on my Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation in 200 Soft Beige so I have been scraping out the remains and mixing it in with my Mizon Snail Repair BB Cream! Surprisingly, I have been really enjoying the combination and with a very light layer, it really helps even out my skin tone! It’s also a better match for my skin because the Rimmel foundation by itself is a tad too dark and can look a little orange when it oxidises throughout the day. I found that by mixing the two, the finish is a lot more natural because it tones down the full coverage matte finish of the Rimmel foundation and makes it look more dewy and fresh.

Hourglass’ Ambient Lighting Powders are phenomenal. Diffused Light is a pale yellow shade that I use almost everyday on top of my foundation as a setting powder to make my skin look more polished and smooth. I highlight suggest you look into them more and find one that will suit your personal needs if you’re searching for new high-end powders. =)

Too Faced Candlelight Highlighter is amazing for a subtle golden glow. I have converted into a highlighter fanatic because of it! I would suggest it for people who have warm undertones because of its golden tone.

➳ I will do a full review on the Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher hopefully sometime next week! =)

The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette was my everyday choice for eyeshadow when I purchased it last year and I’m still really loving it. It is a great neutral and versatile palette that has a wide range of eyeshadows. They are great quality and you can create so many looks with it. For today’s look I applied:

♡ “Salted Caramel” in the crease using a fluffy blending brush
♡ “Amaretto” all over the lids and “Marzipan” on top to add extra shimmer using a standard eye makeup brush
♡ “Semi-sweet” in the outer corners and lower lash line using a pencil brush

The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner is a cult favourite for many people. It lasts all day and is very pigmented. I have had mine for around 3 years (I don’t know if that’s alright or not o_o) and it’s still going strong. It has not dried up in the slightest and still works as great as it did when I first got it! Sepia Ink is a deep brown colour that is a great alternative to black because it is less harsh and a little more natural looking. Highly recommend!

The Tony Moly gloss bars are so cute! The packaging is shaped like a bunny and each one has a different face on it. However, they require frequent reapplication because they wear off quite fast and do not leave a stain at all. They are advertised as being gloss bars though so I honestly did not have high expectations in terms of its lasting power. The shade I used was #5 Juicy Peach, which is a light warm-toned pinky peach shade. I would only recommend this for people who just adore cute makeup and like collecting it, otherwise I would say you can skip out on them!

    Hourglass Ambient Light is not available in Singapore so i intend to order it from the official website. This means I will not get to test it out before I buy. Can I ask why you picked Diffused Light and not Mood Light? I am fair with tinge of yellow undertone – typical asian skin colour. Am hoping to brighten my skin without looking sallow, while covering my acne prone skin. 😁

      I picked up Diffused Light because it already has a bit more of a yellow undertone so it suits Asian skin more! 😀 But I also have a bit of redness in my skin and Mood Light has more of a pinkier undertone so I didn’t want to enhance that! I haven’t tried Mood Light before but I think that if you’re going for a brightening effect you would probably prefer it because Diffused Light doesn’t really brighten, it just blurs and smooths your skin!

        Thanks for sharing with me! Looks like i should decide which one works better then coz I also have some patches of redness due to sensitive skin. I was looking at Dim Light too but your reply is very useful! 👍

        You’re welcome! Hehe yes you also need to look into what kind of effect you want! 😀 I think Dim Light was the other one I was looking at when I first looked at the powders! 😀
