Cherry Blossom FOTD Part II

A simple FOTD using 4 products with a summery OOTD thrown in.

Spring is my favourite season. The sun is shining, cute lambs are born, and trees are starting to blossom.


Today's FOTD is in tribute of the beautiful pink cherry blossoms. I did a Cherry Blossom FOTD last spring, and thought I'd make it a yearly tradition!



My springtime cherry blossom FOTD is centered around flower pink lips and peachy cheeks.

To achieve this I used my new Smashbox In Bloom Cream Cheek Duo, my favourite product this spring.


I skipped foundation or any kind of base today. This year I've been really lucky with my skin. My aim in January was to really work on improving my skin so that I won't have to use foundation anymore.


I used the peachy pink shade (on the right) of the Smashbox Cream Cheek Duo on my cheeks, and the bright pink shade dabbed on my lips.


I used my Illamasqua blusher brush (pictured here) to apply the colour onto my cheeks. It's a great brush which can be used on both cream and powder blush formulas.


I curled my hair for this FOTD using a curling wand, it did not turn out too well! Next time i'll just not aettmpt to style my hair-I'm rubbish at it!


I'm still in my minimalist phase and have used 4 products in this FOTD.


Nars Eyeshadow Duo in All About Eve

Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara

Bobbi Brown Gel Liner in Black

Smashbox In Bloom Cream Cheek Duo



The Duos really help to save space as well as lessen the load of products used!


It's a beautiful sunny day, so I wore this white dress I bought from a small boutique in Sarawak, Malaysia. The dress features white chiffon flowers on the neckline.


Here are a couple OOTD pics:

  1. Your skin definitely doesn't need foundation. And it's good to get your skin to breathe. I like this look, even with your hair in waves. By the way, are you originally from Malaysia?

  2. You actually look like you're wearing foundation! You're skin looks so dewy and radiant. You also look good in that shade of lipstick.

  12. I'm new to your blog. I enjoy it & agree with the others about your flawless skin.
    My question is silly, but what does FOTD stand for?

  13. Thanks girls for the great compliments. @anonymous thanks for visiting my blog, FOTD stands for Face of the Day. It's not a silly question, don't worry! Face of the day is a beauty blog term for basically a makeup look, and the blogger also writes down which products they used. OOTD stands for Outfit of the Day :)

  15. {*WOW}... Your skin is AMAZING. I can't [actually I can] believe you aren't wearing any foundation. Gorgeous flawless skin. You look so dreamy in these photos. I remember this makeup look sounded familiar. You've been doing on every single year. =) That's cool that you're making it a yearly thing.
