Color Me NeonSunday, February 10, 2013
Last Saturday, I had a birthday lunch to attend with the ladies in Tagaytay City at Marcia Adams Restaurant. All the light sweaters that I own are drab colors of brown, gray and black. I just realized that I didn't have colored sweaters.
For those of you who know me, I just love colorful stuff. When I dress in black, I color my nails in bright colors, or maybe a bright colored lipstick.
I decided to wear a black and gray knitted sweater that day, black latex leggings, gold shoes and a really dark purple purse, actually I don't know the exact color but for your reference, it's the LV Amarante color. That being said, I felt like Miss Autumn. I had dull colors on and I wanted pops of color to brighten my drab outfit.
That's when I remembered the unused BYS neon eyeshadow palette in my stash together with the blue liquid liner. A gift from a friend who thought of me when she came across the palette in SM. (Aww... Thanks Dessie!)
When you decide to wear something as daring as neon eye shadow, I suggest keeping the rest of your face bare (meaning, makeup free).
The liquid liner was tricky to apply. It took a long time to dry so I had to sit in front of the electric fan to dry the liner faster. I had to apply several layers, layering the color on each time it dries because if you keep layering without completely drying them first, the first liner just gets erased. It was just too watery.
The blue liner brought out the yellow and the orange real well I must say. Everyone complemented on my eye makeup. Of course it's actually more blended out than this. I had to show you guys how intense the color can get when you layer it on.
I'm so sorry I can't tell you the prices of the products since they were a gift from my friend. For the ladies who reside in Manila, BYS is set to open 13 outlets by the end of September of 2012 and it is available at SM Department Stores and select Watsons branches. I know for a fact that they have a counter at SM Makati.
