Smolder FOTN

Hello beautiful people!

Around this time last year, I was fortunate enough to have two very pigmented eyeshadow duos from Fantasy Makers and guess what happened? I did not use them, not even a peep! They just sat there in my bin like Sleeping Beauty or something while I felt like I did not have enough makeup. My new organizing system helps a lot, as Smolder, the blue duo, got a chance to come out and play recently.

Remember this photo?
That was Smolder, y'all!

The origin of this FOTN is interesting: prior to this, I did not wear makeup for close to a month. My skin gave me the worst attitude ever and I decided to let it be. Then, I was invited to the party and I knew for sure people going there are going to dress up a lot. To up my ante, I decided to wear some makeup and thank God, my skin was a lot better that day. Smolder was within arm's reach and since it has two colors, I did not have to worry about how to coordinate them. The whole process took less than 15 minutes and it was the fastest time I've painted my face for a night out.

  • MAC Bare Canvas paint pot used as an eyeshadow base;
  • Lighter blue eyeshadow from Smolder duo applied all over the eyelids with MAC 239 brush;
  • Darker blue eyeshadow applied to the outer corner of the eyes, using Loew-Cornell 1/4 AMM brush;
  • Then, using Sonia Kashuk blending brush, blend the darker blue color from the outer corner to the crease area;
  • Highlight the area underneath the brow bone with Everyday Mineral blush in Wet Sand;
  • Curl lashes and applied 2-3 coats of mascara;
  • Finally, line the lashes with MAC Blacktrack gel liner and Loew-Cornell spot detailer brush.

  • Adorned with Grace mineral foundation in Grace 3.5, applied with the E.L.F powder brush;
  • EDM silk dust applied with StudioTools dual fiber brush.
 The party was fun and I got to see a lot of people from a different contry and culture. The food was superb and after the night, my makeup was still there! I have to give it to MAC paint pot and my new ELF powder brush.

In fact, the two pictures of me were taken way after the party.
I was not that shiny at all, thanked to the face primer I used.

That's all, folks! I hope you enjoy this FOTN. I've been trying to see if Fantasy Makers sell any new products for this Halloween. So far, I haven't seen any :( How about you? Comment, ok?

  1. You look hot Dao! I'm glad you had fun at the party.

  2. Hi Gio,

    Thank you so much! A friend of mine invited me and other friends to his community's party. They did party hard but we had to leave early. The pictures were taken around midnight, can you believe that?


Dear Dao...
