May FOTD Challenge - Geisha

If you haven't already heard, the gorgeous Sara-May from Makeup By Sara-May is running a FOTD challenge for the month of May. Basically every weekday for the month in May she will be posting a different themed FOTD. Some of the themes include Geisha, Cleopatra, and Rock Chic. I highly encourage you to check out her challenge post to see what the full themes are, and her previous posts for Ice Queen, Rock Chic, and Bridal with a pop of colour.

I don't know what came over me when I was reading her challenge, but I decided to join in whenever I can. Crazy, I know! There are other players in this challenge as well, details at the end of the post.

So the FOTD that I joined in on for this week is Geisha.

I'm not a makeup artist, and I've never done themed looks so this is what I came up with for Geisha, (and yes, the husband did roll on the floor with laughter!)

I've edited the next pic and the last one to give it a more old Asian movie feel. And of course I've used flash in all pics to make sure my skin appeared as white a geisha's.

The products I used were:
Clockwise from above - BYS lipstick in Fuchsia Surprise, White Powder from Crush Cosmetics, L'Oreal Blush in Raspberry Sorbet, Australis Black Eyeliner.

  • Revlon Colourstay in Nude 200 (this is the lightest foundation I own).
  • Crush Cosmetics contour palette white powder - I've actually depotted this powder in a spare blush pan that I had. I've sometimes used a tiny bit of this product in the Tzone area to give a brightness to my face... I've never applied it so heavily as in these pics!
  • L'Oreal blush in Raspberry Sorbet applied HEAVILY
  • BYS Lipstick (that's right lipstick), in Fuchsia Surprise
  • L'Oreal blush in Raspberry Sorbet blended on top of the lipstick
  • Australis eyeliner pencil in Black
  • Maybelline The Falsies Mascara

  • I completely powdered down my natural lips and drew inside it with BYS Lipstick in Fuchsia Surprise.

Some other looks that I'll take part in are Pin-up, Makeup From Another Era, Cleopatra and who knows maybe a few others. I hope you enjoyed! Sara-May's look for Geisha will be coming up later today, and I hope you'll check it out. She is amazing!

    @Polly - yes they're my real lashes. As tempted as I am to try fals lashes I'm a bit freaked out by them, i.e. worried I'll pull my own lashes out when trying to remove the falsies.
