FOTD: Nature Republic + Asian Cosmetics Love

As many of you know by now, yesterday was a big day for me. I wanted to look extra-nice. Haha. ;-D There was also an ongoing contest with Nature Republic, I was hoping to join, but I chickened out. I'm not really fond of the whole voting per se. ;-D Anyhow, here's it.

Happy Anniversary to me! ;-D
Pact/Setting Powder: Nature Republic Vanilla Sky Pact Shade No. 23
Eyes: Nature Republic Pretty Tree Wood Eyeliner in Blue/ Mascara: Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Volume Glamour On dusted with SkinFood Gold Caviar Moist Brightening Powder Ball

Earrings by Accessorize (of course!)

It's been a while since I adorned my hair too...This flower clip is very special! ;-D I actually used it on my civil wedding 9 years ago. :-D And while we're at this photo, I love the turn out of my lashes. Majolica Majorca Mascara + Lashem Lash Gel (review coming soon) both do wonder for my lashes. Love!!! 
Trying out Nature Republic's makeup...swatch of Vanilla Sky Pact with flash. 
Nature Republic Vanilla Sky Pact without flash.
The pact comes with a puff and a removable clear plastic separator. 
Awww...it smells vanilla. ;-D It comes with an embossed vanilla orchid. :-D
Nature Republic lovelies used: Vanilla Sky Pact, Petit Cherry Rouge, and Pretty Tree Wood Eyeliner from my recent NR haul.
I still find doing eye makeup challenging, so for the mean time, I'm just eyeliner + mascara type of girl. For oil control, and setting though, I love dusting the SkinFood Gold Caviar Moist Brightening powder before, and thereafter. I'm loving the subtle shimmer effect. It's sunny and humid (as most of the time) yesterday, but overall, I love the natural dewy, healthy glow effect that these Asian cosmetics ensemble offered me. ;-D 

Hmmm, so what do yo think? Any more Asian brands that I need to set my heart on? Please do tell. ;-D

About Me

My Photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
