FOTD: Sonia Kashuk Neutral Palette

Hello my beautiful people,

Last weekend a good friend of mine, Windy, who now lives in Singapore came back to Jakarta. We haven't seen each other for almost 2 years so I was super excited to see her. Windy's older sister, Cindy, is getting married and she asked me if I could help her to pick some of items she needed for wedding makeup.

We met up at Plaza Senayan, Ai also came along, but I wasn't feeling so well that day and woke up late lol. I joined them after lunch and we went straight to Metro & Sogo to look for makeups. Cindy needed a foundation and I suggested her Revlon Colorstay Liquid Foundation which will stay longer, especially for wedding & photo shoot. She has super clear skin (i'm so jealous T_T) so no extra concealer needed.

I chose Oily/Combination formula in Nude shade for her and it seemed to match her face & neck the best. Here are pictures I took right after I applied it on her half of the face, I think it's necessary to take a picture when choosing a foundation because it's important not to look like you're wearing a mask when you have your pics taken, right?

Cindy said she likes the finish & it actually feels light on her skin. She also bought a synthetic foundation brush to apply the liquid foundation. Then we sat down at Starbucks and caught up with stuffs we've been missing out. Windy & Ai were my closest friend when we were in Japan and we could gossip for hours til we fell asleep. Our pillow talks were the best, I remember one time Windy stayed over and we both were already really drowsy on the bed but we kept talking until we both had no idea what we were talking about. We were like "Huh? What did you say? What did I say?" lol

I haven't touched my Sonia Kashuk Neutral Palette for a looong time and now I realized it's very convenient for those of you who love neutral colors. It has both shimmer & matte finishes so you can switch up according to your preference. For this look I apply #1 all over lid, #4 on outer V and #5 to deepen my socket.

Pure Anada Niagara Fawn Mineral Foundation

I love this look! It's so natural and pretty, exactly what everyday/neutral makeup should be about. It's the kind of look that makes you go, "Woah, that girl has makeup on??".

Revlon Colorstay is amazing! It really does lasts for a long time and is perfect for events like weddings and prom =D
