Long time no see ladies!!! I an so sorry I went Missing-In-Action for such a really long time!!
Firstly, my lap top was down for a couple of weeks! My laptop struck the "crazy flickering screen" disease and when I went down to the Fujitsu Service Centre to have it serviced, I was told that they did not have stocks for the part I needed. And well, I had to wait for a whooping 2 weeks before the part arrived. Secondly, I decided to impose a one month make up ban on myself and I was and still am pretty sure that blogging will weaken my resolve not to buy any make up products so I stayed away. Lastly, I was really really busy with work, work & more work. But well, now I am back!!!
I did really well for my self-imposed makeup ban! I didn't buy any makeup products for well over a month and I only broke that ban recently because the BF went to HK. During that month, I really dug into my stash and I rediscovered my love for a couple of "old" favourites.
Anyway the whole point of this entry is to feature a look that I am so in love with right now. I think this is a fabulous everyday look that's not too subtle and not too over the top (at least that's what I think!).
So here are some pictures of a LOTD that I created using some of my "old" favourites namely, mac retrospeck & satin taupe.

(picture of all the eyeshadows used in this look)
I basically applied satin taupe all over my lids with a MAC 217 brush then I applied my highlight which is vanilla over my brow bone using a MAC 224 brush. After which, I used a SASA flat shader brush to pat on retrospeck on the inner half of my lids. Once that's done, I used a brandless mini smudger brush to smudge some print e/s onto my upper lashline to "fill in" my lashes. Then on top of print I applied urban decay oil slick liquid liner and the look is completed.
I totally forgot how much I used to like retrospeck in the past. If I didn't remember wrongly, retrospeck is my 3rd MAC e/s and I used to go GAGA over it because it was (still is) such a versatile e/s. I can layer it on top on almost any colour and still get away with it. I really dislike MAC's lustre formula due to its poor pigmentation and "fall-outs" problem but this particular lustre won my absolute love and devotion. (*ahem I know I am not that faithful since I was eventually led astray by other eyeshadows. But I swear I was really devoted as long as the devotion lasted. LOL!)
Anyway, here's a swatch of retrospeck just in case you ladies are interested in it. :)
I guess that's about all for this entry. :) And I think I shall be back for my lotds that feature older products from my stash because I had loads of fun with this one! I hope u ladies enjoyed it as much as I did! :)
