LOTD:This was supposed to be an Outfit Post

Hello Charmed girls!

Another frustrated outfit post of mine, so I just ended up with a make-up/look review for that day.
Last Sunday was my aunt's birthday. Coincidentally, I and my mom stopped at Megamall last friday, and I was bugging her to shop because of the on-going clearance sale (which is not really true because the price rarely goes down :/ ). So I just told my mom to just drop by Genevieve Gozum 'cause of Ate Nina of CharNina. I've been a fan of their blog and checking their outfit posts, and I always see that Ate Nina usually wears a piece from Genevieve Gozum. Upon stalking their shop for a while, I've figured out how affordable the price of the clothes and the variety of the items. That Friday I went with my mom, I saw a lot of sheer polos and mullet skirts for a price of..... ta-dah! 400-700 pesos! What a saving! But since we just dropped by, my mom picked this soft-gathered neckline with a big owl design shirt for 199pesos. And since we are in a hurry, I didn't had the chance to fit it without other clothes on XD.

So here's the story. My mom asked me to wear the shirt for my aunt's birthday. And when I tried it on....
IT WAS BODY-HUGGING! FITTED ! And my ARMS are bulging out! I really LOOKED FAT!
I was so happy with the design pa naman, I thought. But I have no choice, wear this now or just wait for my body to shrink (it will take months?) before I wear this again to flatter myself.


Let's have a look first of my do for that day:




FACE: SkinWhite Face cream Powder in Soft Beige, Clinique Face Powder, Lewis&Pearl Loose Powder in Rain| EYES: IN2IT Gel Liner in Brown | LIPS; Avon Lip Balm in Cherry, Loreal Paris Colour Riche Lipstick in Fuschia Red
As you can see the products I'm using are not so expensive, and I'm not using other products like bronzers, primers, concealers, lip liners etc. that may 1.) may damage my skin 2.) make me feel I SHOULD use it, thus getting used to it even if my skin DOESN'T NEED it . I just stick to the basics actually, use of sunscreens, liquid base for higher coverage, and use of lip balm to soften the lips. 

 I'm not against using other products though. In fact it's okay for me to try some. It's just I rarely use them. I love to try BB Creams, various eyeliners, contouring powder, but I'll think I'll just use them whenever I go to events.

Contrary to taking advantage of make-up products, I'm really a big-eyed when it comes to accessories! I really loved the black-and-white scheme so elegant and powerful. So just a simple make-up will do.:)

So when we got there, we met our relatives and they did say:

"Moriela, bagay sa'yo 'yang damit mo! Saan mo 'yan binili? Pumapayat ka ata ah! Nagdadiet ka ba?"
and I was like:

"Hindi po ako nagpapapayat! Hindi po talaga! Pero 'yung damit sa Genevieve Gozum , pinili ni Mama!"

I really don't know how to react that time -_-





My relatives and me



All in all that day was really tiring. But fun! Next day was our org's GA so I have to regain my energy.

Does my look still stunning?

How about you? Do you have a frustrated-story-turned-blogger-worthy post like mine? Share it! I'll take time to read them :D

Love Lots,
MoMo
