Grey ES on Morena Skin

I was very hesitant at first to try grey because I was told how it won’t look great on my deep warm skin tone. But hey, there’s no harm in giving something a try, right? So, I did a test one day. I used the grey e/s on my scheduled job offer. Yes, I got the job I applied for in my recent office OOTD! Then, I did the grey e/s another try the next day, on our Alumni Homecoming and another try the next -- our Sunday Service and again another, a day after that -- my dinner date with friends. I sure enjoyed the supposed-to- be trials that ended up as new EOTDs. J

Will be showing off some of the photos I took while doing the “trials”. Please let me know me if I was able to pull off the grey e/s pretty well, okay?

By the way, there are so many shades of grey, so I chose to use the less shimmery and less frosty ones. I chose mid-tone grays and two darker shades for the outer-V for my medium warm skin tone. I also used white for highlighting the inner corners and the brow bones.

Lighter Grey EOTD

What I used:

I think this lighter shade doesn't work great on me but the mid-tones did though! :D

Midtone Grey EOTD

What I used:

I used Ellana's Dream for Highlighting because I find it easier to blend on my skin.

I would therefore conclude that grey colors can be pulled off by morena women, we just have to choose the shade that's nearest our skin color, mid-tone for medium skin tones that is.

  • Don't use super shimmery greys if you're morena. Shimmers won't work great on our skin.
  • Choose MID-TONE greys
  • Blend and contour the grey with browns to make the color blend well with your skin

If you're also morena, what eye shade do you dread the most? Why not give it a try and show us if it also works on our sun-kissed and naturally tan skin?

Anyways, please do join my summer mineral makeup giveaway! It's now the second part of it, just make sure to try to earn extra points so you can have a good chance of winning :)

Lots of Love,

My Bikini Body Inspiration

I saw this celebrity's story covered in one of the shows in the television. I just actually passed through that cable channel and the story instantly caught my attention seeing how great her body looks at 50! I heard this celebrity mom used a Jenny something-something's diet so I searched the internet for a celebrity named Jenny (cause I first thought that Jenny was that 50-year-old celebrity). I just got everything mixed up since I didn't really watched the whole show.

After searching the net, I discovered that the woman I saw on TV was Valerie Bertinelli and she was using Jenny Craig's diet. hehehe

This is my inspiration in achieving the bikini body I want for Bora. :)

Isn't she gorgeous? I can't believe she was able to get that beautiful bikini body at 50! How I envy her. :)

Btw, don't forget to join my mineral makeup giveaway Part II okay? Just click on the photo below.

Yours Truly,

Who's your celebrity look-alike? :)

Hi girls! Who do people say is your celebrity look-alike? People sometimes tell us that we look like a known local or Hollywood celebrity and we may take it as a compliment or as a criticism, either way, since we all have unique faces, we still can't say that we really look like anybody else unless that somebody is our twin. hehe :)

A well-respected elder in our church told me that I remind her of J-Lo and did I take it as a compliment or as a criticism? Of course, I took it as a compliment but, more of a joke. (lol) Jennifer Lopez, to me, is a very glam and gorgeous lady. She's actually my idol and to be compared to her is like a joke to me. I tried finding a photo of her that might look like me but, even her worst photos didn't a bit look like my best. LOL

Like what my spiritual dad says, JUST say "THANK YOU" when someone gives you a compliment, may it be true or not. LOL

Another is Tyra Banks. Yes, we have the same color, and body type but I also can't see how I look like her. For me she's way prettier. She's a supermodel and I'm not! But, I also believe I am pretty in my own unique way. :)
