This is a sort of Look of the day, blog promotion and contest entry, all in one post :-P.

Janet over at All Things Pretty is having a contest :D to help her blog get started ;). To enter, one has to post a Face Of The Day, and bring new readers to her blog...That is, if I've understood everything correctly. I hope I have XD, I've got a headache >:-/ :(...

So, here is my first ever Look to be posted on this blog, as part of my first ever contest entry...Featuring My Favourite Red :), as a bit of an homage to my previous post ;).

Bizarre stunned bad-horror-movie-still-like pic >:-). I adore how my earphone cable ended up strangling me :-/. Must pay more attention to details next time...

Do I look drunk? I'm not drunk. I swear I'm not drunk XD. I never am.

Hmmm...Or am I simply on the way to passing out >:-) :-/?

This is the closest I could get to a normal picture >:-). My facial expression looks really stupid, like I can't quite decide whether to smile or not...(For the record: I think I indeed couldn't XD.) And the Angelina posters are my sister's :-P.

So those are my very unattractive pics :-P...(I was going for a classic liner & red lips look.) Now here's the list of stuff I used :).

Skin stuff: Oriflame Visions Fresh Face Foundation in Porcelain Doll, Tigi Bed Head Fixx-It Stick (concealer) in Light, and Rimmel Lasting Finish Compact Pressed Powder in Transparent.

Eyes: Styli-Style Flat Pencil in Cairo (black) to line the eyes (winged it out a little on the outer corners ;D), the light shade from the Almay Trio For Hazel Eyes on the lid and inner corners (for the sheen, and because I hate hate hate naked lids), and loads of mascara (a few coats of Rimmel Volume Flash, then one coat of Rimmel Lash Maxxx to define & separate, then another coat of Volume Flash on the outer corners), on curled lashes of course :). Oh, and I used some Benefit EyeCon on my under-eye area ;).

Cheeks: Benefit BeneTint ;D.

Lips: Oriflame Visions Liplicious Lip Balm in Strawberry as a base: it's a waxy, non-fluid texture, and has a reddish colour. Then, one coat of Oriflame Matt Glam Lipstick in Jean, applied straight from the tube ^_^.

And here are all my products for this face ^_^...

Not sure what my Tigi sharpener is doing there, since I didn't use it XD. And there goes that earphone again >:-D...Lol.

[The eye colour I used is the one on top ;).]

Their close-ups are next...

And that's my part of this done...Now here's what you have to do :-P ^_^: Go visit Janet's blog, check it out, and maybe even sign up (:D)...And leave her a comment saying something like, "Cris from Diamond Enigma sent me" ;). You can enter this contest if you want to, of course :-P...If you do, good luck, and have fun ;D. That's why we do these things after all XD.

Thanks for reading :), and please help me win :-P ;).

Great first FOTD, you look adorable!

Cris said...

Awww, thank you ^_^!!!
I hope I do :-/. I hate the way I look on pictures most of the time, so...Yeah XD.
And I like the way my lip colour turned out too ;)...It's sheer :D but still red, and still pretty :).

i really like this look! looks really fresh.ive never heard of the brand oriflame though.looks interesting.

oh and thanks for subscribing back and leaving a comment!<3

Cris said...

I hope that wasn't a polite way of saying I look bad in the other 2 >:-).
Just kidding. Well...Mostly XD.

Fresh? Thank you :D!
Oriflame's sold by catalogue, and not available worldwide :(, which is why many people haven't heard of it, I think ;). But I love their stuff :-P and own loads, so I'll be blogging about it a lot XD.
And you're welcome ^_^ :).

i wish i could be brave enough to post my pic like you and the other beauty bloggers day... it'll be a surprise! =D

miku said...

You look awesome! I know what it is like to feel weirded out when you see yourself in a picture. Sometimes I stop for a second and wander 'is that really me?'. But either way, you are cute and blonde hair looks so good on you!

thanks for the comment.
yes i do have the lancome oscillation mascara and despite all the bad reviews it is one of my favorites. Personally in a mascara i look for extreme length and a little volume - this mascara does that while seperating your lashes, it can clump a little, but im not fussed with clumps as long as my lashes are long lol, but a lash comb can alleviate that - hope i helped!

Ladyfei♡ said...

actually ur expression is cute!
i can never pull off red lips! (DUH~?? haha)
and its a pretty look! ^^

Cris said...

So I'm brave to post my picture...Because I'm so unattractive. Since there's nothing brave in posting a beautiful pic, but mine aren't, and that makes me brave...

Oh God. I'm sorry. I always get this paranoid >:-)...I know I shouldn't, but I can't help it.

Thank you all SO much for the nice comments :). Maybe they'll help me be more confident...One day.

And thanks for the mini review of the Lancome mascara ^_^. It did help ;).
