LOTD: Xteeener inspired look.

Hello everyone..
It either rains posts on my blog or there is nothing at all.. that is the story of my life.. it either rains events or I have nothing to do. But I'm making an effort to blog more regularly.. hopefully.. my holidays end in 2 weeks and then once I'm back to work, its back on the CrazyLife train.. but I'm really enjoying blogging so I'm going to put an effort to work at it more..

As you may have read, I had a post up some time ago about my favorite YouTube gurus for makeup and Xteeener was the first on my list. In case you missed that, well here is the link.

For the first time I actually tried a look that she did and didn't just simply watch the video and sit silently and I loved the way it turned out. The first time I tried it, I clicked the picture in the car and you can see only the lip colour properly

This is my first Look Of The Day, and the pictures are very so so. I realized that I have no clue of how to click a pic of myself such that I can highlight the face properly and especially pictures of the eye makeup. Such a flop show. Anyway I'm hoping you guys will adjust maadi.. and I'm thinking if I do more of these, I will get better. Right?

So here is the final look.

Breakdown of products.

Face: L'Oreal True Match foundation in W7
         L'Oreal concealer in W7
         Deborah Milano compact in 02
         Lakme blush in Honey bunch
         Pink blush from The Colour Institute Beauty Book.
Eyes: Street wear cream eyeshadow in Groovy Baby (a golden shade)
          Champagne color from Clinique Colour palette in Like Mink (inner third and brow highlight)
