A couple of weeks ago, I was in a semi-state of panic as I had a wedding to attend at 11am in the suburbs followed by my baby shower high tea at 2pm in the city.  In my heavily pregnant state of 34 weeks, I could barely find anything to wear for the 2 events – and no, I was not prepared to wear the same dress to both events because it was a HOT day and I didn’t want to be Sweaty Betty at my baby shower where I would be hugging my girlfriends.  Anyway, I tried on all my dresses and settled for a green bubble dress for the wedding and a pink tight-fitting dress for the pink-themed baby shower (which you have already seen me wear here).  And my next dilemma was to make sure my make-up would look good but different for both events so here’s what I came up with using the products above…

Makeup For The Wedding

As I was wearing a green dress, I decided to go for a subtle earthy green eyeshadow look using colours from the Dior Mystic Metallics Bonne Etoile palette { see my review & swatches here }.

Since I knew that I would be getting plenty of photos taken at my baby shower later that day, I needed a bit more volume than what mascara could give me and stuck on some false lashes.  And better to stick them on before the wedding than during my hasty change and mad dash to the city for my baby shower.

BTW, that black mark on my eyebrow is actually a scar from a car accident when I was 18…and not a makeup boo boo 😛

Seeing as I didn’t want a bold lip for the wedding, I just dabbed some Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten onto my fingertip and blended it on my lips for a subtle pink colour.

As for my hair, I basically used the Babyliss Pro Curling Iron and evo hair products from this post.

Makeup For My Pink Baby Shower

To jazz things up for my pink baby shower, I added more of the bronze shade onto my lids…although it isn’t that obvious in the photos.  I kicked myself for forgetting to pack my liquid black eyeliner as I would have loved to have created a sexy cat-eye flick.

As I was wearing a bright pink dress, I deepened the pink for my cheeks and vamped up my lips.

I also forgot to pack pressed powder to touch up my oily face.  It was a hot day and we spent some time outdoors getting photos taken for the wedding so my foundation had slightly melted….and this was reflected in the photos taken at my baby shower 😛  Ah well…

If you want to read more about my pink baby shower, read my personal blog here.  I’m having ANOTHER baby shower later on today with work friends and family members – should I just go for the same makeup look?  Don’t think I will wear the pink dress again because my sister who looked at the photos later said it is WAY too short and she can almost see bubs!!  LMAO!!!

A Brief Lowdown on the Products I Used

makeup products, makeup porn, lots of makeup, beauty products

Clinique Superprimer Universal Face Primer

L’Oreal Paris Nutri Life Gold Anti-Ageing Serum Foundation*

  • A lovely moisturising foundation which gives a nice glow as it has Gold Micro Particles but needs setting powder (which I forgot!)

Benefit Fake Up*

  • Still my favourite undereye concealer { review here } but in my haste that morning, I forgot to use another concealer to conceal the redness around my nose

Dior Mystic Metallics Bonne Etoile palette*

Ardell Fashon Lashes in 108*

Ardell LashGrip Clear Adhesive For Strip Lashes*

  • This was my first time trying Ardell lash glue and I have no complaints as my lashes stayed put from 10am till 5pm and would have stayed on longer but Mama-to-be was tired from attending two social events and needed a Nana nap as soon as she got home! 😛

Face of Australia Big Volumising Lash Mascara*

  • As an everyday mascara, this is adequate for my short stubby Asian lashes, but I needed the extra oomph factor with faux lashes.  Used this to blend my natural lashes with the false lashes.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Rockstar

  • Fantastic plummy brown eyeliner

Ben Nye Powder Rouge in Raspberry

  • Awesome pigmented powder blush

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Smitten

  • Major love for the Revlon Balm Stains as my lips were bold pink from start to finish even after sipping lots of tea and eating delightful treats at the high tea…plus Miss J Shopaholic complimented my lippy choice too 😉

Brows Up Eyebrow Pencil (not pictured)

  • My go-to eyebrow pencil from Hong Kong which I need my sister to repurchase for me when she comes over to visit me and bubs { review here }

Anyway, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I shall speak to you next week 😀

    I love Revlon and L’Oreal products – they always have great make-up/lipstick colours. Other than your make-up, I also like your hair, Ling. You look great!
