Feels Like Mellow Yellow Today: FOTD



Its bright and sunny today and the weather has inspired me to put on a cheery colored top. I kept my makeup light and didn't do anything to my hair other than curl the two front pieces and then shook it out. I'm wearing one of my vintage black necklaces. Did I ever mention I adore vintage jewellery, accessories, and clothing? Well, I do, I do, I do! I'm the type of person that treasures jewellery or handbags and clutches with a story behind it. I always think what good times this thing must of had and I'm sure a few tears were shed as well. Its one of those things that rocks my boat and makes me feel special.

I decided to paint my nails in pink and I used China Glaze Nail Polish in Soft Mink. While I was at it I also included a picture of my new bracelet that arrived in the mail a few days ago. Its another Links of London Bracelet with the red heart, its so delicate and pretty.

My face:
Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer in Nude

Cheeks:
No 17 Bronzer from Boots in color Medium(thanks Amy-Louise) and Jane Mineral blush in Soft Mink (thanks Sarah).

Eyes:
Bourjois Eyeshadow in Beige Rose and Annabelle Kohl Liner in Brown, a touch of bronzer in my crease, and few coats of L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara

Lips:
No 17 Lipliner from Boots in Buff, Cremesheen Glass from MAC in Creme Anglaise


By the way, if you notice that my backgrounds are a little run down its because our home is under major renos and wherever I photograph its being either sanded, demolished or we haven't gotten to it yet. I'm running out of places to take a picture with decent lighting. Bear with me and pray for me to keep my sanity throughout this process.

This is a stunning look!...I tend to slum about the place in no make up and joggie bums on a sunday so go you!x

@Steph...Hi, I was slumming about but had to leave the house and I always feel like I need to put something on my face. Trust me I was looking haggard about 5 mins before this pic was taken. lol My hair is bedhead all the time.

@Anna....Ciao Bella, Thank u. If you get the Laura Mercier Tined Moisturizer get it in the Oil Free Formulation because I find its still emollient and with summer coming you don't want to look like a grease ball. :) <3

lizz said...

so so cute :D love the nails and lips and the yellow on you. I honestly have never worn yellow but will now even try something yellow on as you look so hot :D

Thanks lizz, I bought this top on a whim when I decided last year that I had too many black items in my wardrobe. I force myself to wear colour because i tend to revert back to black. Working at mac only fueled my black tendency. Yellow would look smashing on you and so would deep purple.

ASourSkittle said...

thanks for the info! oh and if you have trouble finding the maxfactors (which i have), drugstore.com carries the entire line and they ship internationally now (i think it also may be free)

LoveLipstickandLime said...

@ ASourSkittle....Thank you, I appreciate the info. I'll check out that website because come to think of it I haven't seen any MAX lipsticks at my drugstore. xox N
