Olive Green EOTD

**The product(s) mentioned in this post is purchased by me. I am not affiliated with any companies.**

I often match my eye makeup with my outfit because it makes me try the different eyeshadow shades I have.

Recently I did a post on one such occasion here, when I wore a blue-grey-black dress a while ago.

Today I had on me an olive green (or sage) dress and I thought I could experiment with the baked eyeshadow trio  from MUA. These little trio palettes are really really good, and I absolutely recommend it. The colour payoff is crazy!!! I prefer to use finger to pick up the pigment and dab on eyelids, instead of using a brush as it may pick up too much product.

Here’s the dress colour.

Forgetful Makeup Day #2: Setting Powder

Hello lovelies. It seems to me I am getting more and MORE forgetful even with the things I do (i.e. makeup) everyday!

Anyway, today I forgot to bring the translucent setting powder to work. I have just returned from a holiday from the beach, and while on holiday I decided not to pack my translucent powder along. I wasn’t going to wear loads of makeup at the beach anyway. However, I did bring my Guerlain Météorites Perles in Teint Rosé and a small setting brush from Real Techniques.

It’s a small travel size tub I got from the airport, perfect for packing light. You can see that the green balls break down much quicker than the others.

While on holiday, I had my SPF on and I used some meteorites perles on the T-zone. What it did was to reduce a bit of shine but it’s not good at absorbing oils… which you tend to get while under the humid weather and sun in this Siam-land. So after about two hours I had an oily face and looked like my makeup had melted. Note to self: better pack along industry-strength powder that absorbs oil on the next beach holiday!!

Anyway, ok. Since I just got back yesterday I managed to resume most products back to my makeup pouch. I said most… because I had forgotten the setting powder!! Quick look at what I had on hand, fortunately I have the small little setting powder from Bobbi Brown creamy concealer which I hardly use because it’s a disaster every time I open the little tab at the bottom. Lightly dust some over T-zone et voila!

So that’s what I used for emergency today. Not too bad.

Now I have a question. Since these setting powders are usually finely milled, do they cause health hazard if you breath in on a daily basis? hmm…
