FOTD - As Sir Thinks-He-Knows-Alot requested

After reading the list of Japanese favourite products 2011 from Ekimura, I immediately gave MAC a call 10 minutes before their closing time to check if they still have MAC Siss lipstick. The MAC Siss lipstick ranked 1st in the magazine and I want it it so badly. I was worried after reading in some forums that it has been discontinued.

Chris answered the call and a few seconds later confirmed that they had it. Whee! Early the next day. Sir Thinks-He-Knows-Alot aka Sir Terrible Memory, took me to Gurney Plaza to try the colour.

His comment, "You look like you ate some chocolate and forgot to wipe mouth." Uhh, thanks dear. I tried Creme D'Nude instead and after a moment, Sir Thinks-He-Knows-Alot commented that I just un-made myself.


Black black eyes

According to Sir Thinks-He-Knows-Alot, women should have red lips, it is unnatural to have brown/chocolate coloured lips. (MAC Siss was the colour of McDonald's chocolate ice cream cone on me - not the sundae, cone). In his (narrow) eyes, women should all have pale skin, black black eyes (eye makeup) and red lips.

I debated with Sir Thinks-He-Knows-Alot that we usually focus on just ONE feature. You can't do the eyes AND the lips. People wouldn't know where to look at! He just happily said, " Oh, but if you do the eyes AND the lips, it will make your look balance and everything will look good." Left me a little speechless.

For someone who can't tell between a lip balm and a lipstick, he sure talks a lot.

But I decided to make his wish come true... in a way to educate him.
  • Pale skin
  • Black black eyes
  • Red Lips
Got it! Things needed;


ELF eye primer
Elianto Whitening Fresh Foundation Stick
The Face Shop Phytogenic make up base in Green
La Pensee eyebrow palette
Botanics eyeshadows
MAC Typographic
Silkygirl Yin and Yang
MAC Kohl pencil in black
NYX jumbo pencil in Black Bean



Apply ELF primer all over eyes and then NYX Black Bean as base. Smear it all over till it's somewhat a shape you want. I brought it up higher than usual to emphasize the 'black black eyes'.



Layer Silkygirl Yang on top of NYX Black Bean and pat on it so there's little fall out. Use Botanic eyeshadow in pale gold to highlight the brow bone and clean up. MAC Typographic is used blend the harsh line gone.

Line waterline with MAC Kohl pencil. Apply falsies.

Apply TFS Phytogenic base all over face to reduce the redness and make yourself paler than usual.

Elianto Whitening Fresh Foundation Stick next.


Left to right: With lip gloss, without lipgloss

The sun is now out and I slowly roast in my own room. Make up starts melting. Quickly sets face with Anna Sui loose powder or whatever was within hands grab.



Line lips with Revlon lip liner, fill in with Secret Pouty Shine Lipstick in Wild Rose and MAC Cult of Cherry lip gloss

Make up continue melting, need pictures quick!



Put on wig, camewhore, hide behind window when dad walked pass. Camwhore a little more. Make up melted beyond help. Gave up.

To Sir Thinks-He-Knows-Alot:
Another request with black eyeshadow and I'll draw your face with my eyeliner while you sleep!

P.s: Thanks to all the comments, Sir Thinks-He-Knows-Alot now struts around with a super-sized head happily quoting the rest of you..

But thanks for the comment, it was nice to know I didn't look crazy or freaky or worst XD

Ughh..

Aaaaah you're so pretty Ash :D

I would only wear a heavier eye with red lips for a photo shoot or something. Not that I have a photoshoot planned or anything heheh. But I agree with focusing on one feature, because I easily feel like I'm wearing way too much make up! I usually go for the red lips ^_^

Haha...you two are so funny together! It's a sign of great chemistry. ;) I am not usually a fan of playing up both features but this look would be perfect for a vixen-y FOTD!

(Aw, thanks! It's nice to be considered lucky versus the other way around...lol. I got a good laugh at the ghost doing a better job at flushing the toilet compared to people. XP)

hmmm...I actually agree with JH on this not that I fancy bold red lips,(coz I have fuller lips so,shall I put this color on, this crimson red lips probably kill someone by accident *lol*) but the finishing look sleek,chic and ahem balance !!.

I do like this MAC siss lip color tho, I dinna know they carry this color, hmmmm it is not hard to guess where I have been hiding all this time *bingo* you guessed right Under the well and croaking.

Take care darl and keep up the great work *thumbs up* winks !

I do, I do think that black smokey eyes and red lips is seductive. I think most guys don't care if its not supposed to look like that as long as it look sexy. Guys can be weird. My bf thinks earrings is weird and he cringe every time i put on earrings.

ur lips look so seductive!

COSMOS said...

See, Elyn agrees with me! You should put black eyeshadow more often.

And get redder lipsticks.
