Vintage Glam FOTD: Gold + Red Eye Shadows Makeup

If you guys haven't heard +Liz Outh of My Pretty Obsessions and I are on a No Buy this March!
 Read our intro posts here:

Today, we are sharing you our FOTD's (Face of the Day) using some of our makeup products that have been pushed back in our makeup drawers. Just giving love to the makeup products we always loved but just got neglected since our collections just kept growing and growing.

This past weekend if you have been following me on Twitter (@_j4ckie) or Instagram (@_j4ckie) I started Project SoHo (small office/ home office), since hubby has suggested it's time to get all my blogging stuff (laptop, notebook..) and beauty products/ makeup area be all in one space and not all over the house. So we finally finished building my desk and drawers, and I have been going through my makeup products and sorting them out on different drawers, and I did find my old favorites!

1- NYX Triple Eye Shadows in Golden/Rust/ Walnut Bronze: This was my go-to everyday eye shadow palette. I just love that Walnut shadow all over the lid and I am good to go. The texture of this eyeshadow is very different from my other NYX shadow palettes. It's hard to describe because it's in between creamy and powder texture. The sponge applicator that this came with is the perfect tool to use to apply the eye shadows evenly on my lids.
2- Tarte Amazonian Clay blus in Fearless: This baby pink shade has a hint of shimmer when you look into the pan but on the cheeks it gives a nice pinky-blush with not that noticeable shimmer. I bought this last Summer when I saw it on sale just to try out the infamous Tarte Amazonian clays and I do see why it is very popular.
3- Tarte smolderEyes in Champagne: This was my favorite inner corner highlight before I got the Stila shadow in Kitten. I still love it and I'd probably be using this more often when in a hurry since I just dab, smudge and done!
4- bareMinerals original powder foundation in Golden Tan: Since I have been using liquid foundation lately I have pushed this back. But since I am dealing with break outs right now I just wanted to keep it light with my foundation and I forgot how this goes on so nicely on my skin! 
5- Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey: My lips have been really dry so just for a nice sheer of color with moisture I grabbed this from my huge pile of lip products.

I also just wanted to share with you my OOTD (Outfit of the Day) since I bought this top from my ShopStyle Shop! I curated this shop on what are on my Spring Trend 2014 list, and one of them is this shirt by Madison Square Clothing, Celfmade Millionaire. I couldn't resist and bought it! It comes in black or white and I lean towards black outfits a lot so I went with the black shirt. 

You can check out my shop here: FiveTwo Certified at ShopStyle

And I am in-love with this bold, colorful necklace to dress up this shirt or any outfits! This one I got from Baublebar!  I have talked about this shop so much in my blog and this site has been my go-to for accessories!
