Face of the Day: subtle browns

Face of the Day: yes this is an actual thing! It’s like an Outfit of the Day (OOTD) but with makeup instead of clothes. I thought this would be a fun concept to try out because I used some different colours on my face today.

Generally I stick to peachy and pink colours, but I was in a brown mood today. I think this was all inspired by the rich brownish plum lip liner I bought from Etude House recently. I liked it so much that I wore it as a lipstick! I don’t usually go for dark colours (brown/grey/black) because I have bad dark circles and sunken eyes, and dark colours just make this look worse. When I do wear brown it has to be quite light or shimmery to lift my eyes.

The look:

    1. Oh funny, that wasn’t my intention but that’s great! It’s just lip liner but the formula is really creamy – almost like lipstick
