FOTD: Balmbini Face

Hi guys!

This is an FOTD I came up with last week. I was playing with my theBalm Balmbini Palette that I purchased on my last holiday. There's a face chart on the back of the packaging, I thought I'll just give it a go. I found I really fancy makeup charts on some makeup packaging lately. I feel like it spoils me, in a way I don't have to think about what color I should use and where to put. Anyway, in this FOTD, I used all theBalm products in the palette.



This is how the makeup chart looks like.


A little bit about Balmbini palette, it literally is a definition of 'Babies of theBalm' as written on the packaging. All the products inside, for all I know, are the best of theBalm. At least there are so many products in this palette that I wanted to try initially, and I was thinking about purchasing each of the products individually. Thank God they made this palette. Imagine how much money I saved up by just buying this palette alone! theBalm is really in right now. Feels like everybody raved about this brand, so this palette is a great introduction to so many theBalm products. I haven't played with this palette that much that I don't think I can come up with a review post yet. But my initial thought about this palette is, I'm so glad I decided to purchase this!

Close up of the eye. My liquid liner is a bit messy here and I have my reason, which I'll tell you soon.

I followed the face chart exactly, so you can see what products I was wearing from the picture above. I used only one eyeshadow on my lid, which is something I rarely do. But it looked good enough, in my opinion. The color 'Insane Jane' is already beautiful on it's own. Who says makeup has to be complicated?

'Read My Lips' lipstick is a pinky red color, which is not really my cup of tea. I prefer a warm deep red. So in this look, I applied just a sheer amount of the lipstick and then layered it with 'Wanted' gloss. I believe all the products in this palette are available in permanent collectionm yet I looked at theBalm website and couldn't find both the lipstick and the gloss. But then again, these two don't really impressed me anyway, so I don't really care.

Other products that I used in this look are
On Face:
Graftobian HD Creme Foundation 'Desert Sand'
Urban Decay Razor Sharp Ultra Definition Finishing Powder
Bobbi Brown Corrector 'Peach'
MUFE Lift Concealer '3'

On eyes:
Urban Decay Primer Potion 'Eden'
My eyebrows set
MUFE Aqua Eyes'1L'
Bourjois Liner Clubbing 'Absolute Black'
L'oreal Volume Shocking Mascara
