As a trial, an impromptu one at that, I had decided to take my new NARS Blush in Super Orgasm for a test run this morning. Ah, the joy of finally getting behind the wheel then the knee-knocking whatev starts. Gah. Expectations are so high!
Shooting from the bottom simply because I had wanted to capture great light on my face. No luck in blind focusing. Sigh. You see a tinge of the Super Orgasm shade and sparkle, though. I had opted for a lighter application, first, cuz it was after all my first try, and, two, I was headed to a solemn ceremony and ultra, super orgasmic blush on my cheeks may turn my face red from embarrassment once I step inside that room. Had to keep it clean and simple.
So much for giving it another go. I reckon I was simply too rushed to take a decent photo. Even changing the angle didn’t work but, again, you can see a touch of the NARS Blush. Hep. I just need to interject, don’t think that my lashes is made of awesome? I fell in love with it when I saw the photo! Three guesses on what mascara I used? PLUS no Lash Curlers!
Makeup in full side light. Ambient, between 8 and 9-ish in the morning. Love the natural look for daytime. I think it’s fantastic to step out of the house hoping that people won’t notice that I did have makeup on; will think that I’m born with it. LOL.

Meikah mentioned that she loved the lipstick-and-gloss combo I did on Penny, so, here’s an interesting trivia for you, apart from the fact that I am wearing the exact same gloss on these photos, I’m also planning to write about that combo (on me!) real soon! Stay tuned!
P.S. I can’t help but be amazed at how makeup can make you look fresh even when you have had ZERO sleep. Baffling. LOL.
