|Youngblood Purely The Basics Kit in Light, Lancome Definicils mascara in Waterproof Noir, Nyx Angel Veil primer, Revlon Ultra HD lipstick in Poinsettia, Chella Eyebrow Color Kit in Elegant Ebony|
For lashes, I curled them naked and then applied two coats of Lancome Definicils Mascara in Waterproof Noir (allow time to dry between coats!), then curled again after the mascara dried. I am loving the definition, separation, and most importantly, curl-holding ability of this mascara!
For brows, I used the Chella Eyebrow Color Kit in Elegant Ebony: first I used the Elegant Ebony Eyebrow Color pencil in soft, light strokes to fill in my brows. Next, I defined and set my brows further with the Eyebrow Defining Gel. I usually prefer a clear wax pencil to set my brows, but the Defining Gel is great for softening any stroke marks from the pencil and gives more of the natural, full brow look that is in right now. The Elegant Ebony kit comes with a Highlighter Pencil in Cinnamon, which is way too dark for me to use for highlighting, so I used it to rim my upper and lower lashline instead. This warmed up my eyes a bit and even looks slightly bronze-y against my skin tone. Luckily, I do have a Chella Highlighter Pencil in Ivory Lace, which is the right colour for me, and used it to draw lines underneath my brows and down my nose bridge, then blended.
With the exception of the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, all of the products I used in this look are available at London Drugs; I believe the Youngblood and Chella kits are exclusive to London Drugs unless you go online. I like the natural, fresh-faced look I got from these products, and they're suited well to Chinese New Year because it's so quick and easy--leaving more time to celebrate!
How does your family do Chinese New Year? We stay in and have family over, and snack on traditional goodies like candied lotus seeds and bánh chưng.
(Sidenote: I thought my hair bounced back pretty well from the dying, but I can see here that it's SO dry! Please recommend me all your favourite hair things.)
