FOTD: Forever Twenty-One

When I was 10 to 15 years younger than today I wanted to look older than my age. It is because I look so young that people I interview for my work before sometimes don’t take me seriously and say that I look like someone who was sent to do an errand in the store by my parents or most common slang in the Philippines “pinabili lang ng suka“. Or when colleagues go for a night out in a bar they would tell the waiter not to give me alcoholic drink coz I’m still a minor and give me hot milk instead (LOL).  Now that I’ve reached my mid-30′s I now want to preserve the youth that I once had and look like I’m forever twenty-one!

The key to this look is the foundation because it makes the skin flawless! I will tell you more about the foundation in my next post. The blush that I used also makes this look young because of the pinched effect it is not too red or pink or orange but just enough that it looks like I’m flushed from working out or sun exposure.

I used the medium brown shade from the Revlon Primer-Shadow on my eyelids up to the crease then the liquid eyeliner to create the wing-tip and mascara to add volume to my eyelashes.

Viola!

I went out wearing this look at the Avon Fashion 2013 Revelry of Colors fashion show and there are a lot of people I know there said I look way much younger with my hairdo and my makeup that they saw when I posted a selfie before I went to the event.

    I used a few products from Revlon’s Photoready line when I was in makeup school. Love how it’s easy to use and how it performs! Parang wala kang foundation 🙂
