Smokey Eyes. Nude Lips. Messy Curls.

I decided to fire up one lazy Sunday afternoon, by flaunting MY VERY FIRST ATTEMPT on smokey eyes, my favorite nude creamy lips, and some naughty, messy curls.

I also slipped into my comfy tube dress and culdoroy teal jacket before going out with the Sweetie and downing some serious coffee [courtesy of my BDJ coupons!] while "people watching." Believe me, it's therapeutic!

I'm no expert on smokey looks and my skin is not in its best condition lately, so sorry if it looked weird, or shocking =p



My first attempt to do smokey eyes =) I hope it wasn't so bad =[
Products used:
Maybelline Shadow Stylist in Urban Grey
Silver & Black Palette from mom
L'oreal Wear Infinite Quad (nude colors)
Maybelline Hypercurl WP Black Mascara
F21 Soft Eye Pencil
Yes, I don't use liquid eyeliners =D

My OOTD:


Black Tube Dress from SM Department Store


Teal Culdoroy Jacket from Mango



I use to hate my full pouty lips, but I learned to love them, at least I don't have to spend on collagen =P


Some smile.

The last time I had curls was way back in college, and it's never permanent because, well, I'm careful with commitments [yup, even with my hair]. I like my hair big, full body, and with natural waves rather than super straight, which I think makes my already prominent cheekbone YELL!!! LOL.
But after seeing the photos, I'm seriously contemplating on getting it permed, and maybe just cut it if I ever get bored. So help me girls, do you want me straight or curly? I love to hear your thoughts! And for reference, tadah!




STRAIGHT MESS? or CURLY MESS?

Have a great midweek!

Much Love,
The Neurochiq

  11. Wow! I vote for curly!
    I used to have perms but I slowly chopped the permed parts off though because my hair got too dry :P

    the smokey eye looks good :) I like it <3

  12. @ Kay: Thank you, Kay. That's my worry, too. Since my hair is "overly" dyed, perm can be fatal already, and I'm too lazy to have it treated every now & then. I guess I can set it once in a while =)

    The smokey look is my first attempt, needs more more practice =P

    Muah*
