FOTD with Guerlain Rouge Automatique Cherry Blossom


For today's look, I'm using one of my favourite pink lip colours, Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Cherry Blossom 161.



On my cheeks I used my new MAC Beauty Powder in Alpha Girl for soft, peachy-pink flush.



I like the consistency of Geurlain's Rouge Automatiques. The texture is pretty creamy, and the colours are fairly long-wearing.



Cherry blossom is a light to medium rosy pink with frosty shimmer.


Swatch of Cherry Blossom:


Lip swatch:



I used quite a thick layer of the lipstick for this swatch so you can have a good idea of the true colour of this shade. For my FOTD I lightly applied the lipstick and blended it out for a softer, easy to wear look.


Products used in today's look.

Face:
Dior Crystal Nude Natural Matte Skin Perfecter in 001 Invisible
MAC Beauty Powder Alpha Girl on cheeks

Eyes:
Shiseido Integrate GY941 on brows
MAC Eyeshadow Smut
MAC Eyeshadow Typographic as Liner

Lips:
Guerlian Rouge Automatique Cherry Blossom




The pores on my skin were looking pretty visible today, so rather than brave a FOTD without any base, I applied my recently acquired Diorskin Crystal Nude Natural Matte Skin Perfector.


It is a translucent, colourless product that can be used on its own, as a base or over foundation. I used it on its own and it instantly made my face look a whole lot smoother.


My fringe is still at that awful awkward growing out stage. When I kept a fringe, it grew so fast I needed frequent trims at the hairdressers. Now that I want to grow it out, it just won't grow fast enough! So for the time being, you will see pictures of me with the top of my head cropped off.

  14. I didn't even notice you'd cropped off the top! I do that on my blog b/c my forehead's been bumpy this summer. Your skin is gorgeous! You remind me of a college friend I had (she's Taiwanese and has big eyes and is tall, too).
