FOTD: Cherry Picking in Summer

Hi guys!

Lately, I'm inspired to put on make up despite this ridiculous heat  and that I'm going nowhere. Hahaha!(All dolled-up and nowhere to go.) Most of the time, I get inspiration from the gorgeous MUA and make up enthusiasts I follow on IG like @_jmaybelline and @annwabisabi16 to name a few. Sometimes, I just look at my lipstick stash and base a certain look from my chosen lipstick. In this particular FOTD, I decided to use Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Cherry Picking. Since Cherry picking is already a bright color in my opinion, I went for a neutral eye make up. To find out how I created this look and what products I used, just keep on reading. :)

  • Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser (to prime my face)
  • Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse in Medium
  • Colour Collection Perfect Cover Concealer in Natural
  • Wet n Wild Natural Blend Pressed Powder in Buff (to set the foundation and concealer)
  • Lol Matte Bronzer in brown Sugar (for contour)

  • Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk (to prime my lids)
  • E.L.F. 100 pcs. Eyeshadow Palette
  • Nichido Defining Mascara
  • Essence Gel Eyeliner in Midnight in Paris
  • Ever Bilena HD Eye Liner in Brown (for lower lash line)


1. I primed my lids using the Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk.

2. All over the lids, I patted on a flesh/champagne shadow (#1)

3. Then, I blended a brown eye shadow (#2)  on the crease. I applied it using a back-and-forth motion and made sure I blend out any harsh line.

4. Next, I  used a yellowish cream e/s (#3) to highlight the brow bone and the inner corner. I also used it to blend the crease.

5. Then, I used a darker shade of brown (#4) to define the outer corner.

6. I lined the upper lash line with a black gel liner and the bottom lash line with a brown eyeliner.

7. Lastly, I curled my lashes, applied a few coats of mascara, and added some falsies.
