I felt so stressed out today, so I did what I do best - makeup then shop! I tell you, it always works!!!!

so here are the POTD's (picture/s of the day).. haha... so I'm makin up my own segment!!

here, I did a very neutral makeup, just what I wear when I run errands around town.... sorry, the picture quality is not that great as I only used a point & shoot camera...
what I used:

Shiseido day essential moisturizer 
Revlon PhotoReady foundation in 008 Golden Beige
MAC Studio Sculpt concealer in NC30
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Medium
Physician's Formula Light Bronzer
Jane blush in Blushing Petal
Evian facial spray

MAC Rice Paper e/s all over lid
Diamond Cosmetics Kohl e/l in Black
MAC Handwritten e/s smudged under bottom lashes
L'Oreal Double Extend Mascara in Blackest Black
ELF eyebrow kit in Dark

MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner in Strobe Rays

then I went to Sally's & got some nail stuff, just when I thought I was over the whole nail polish phase.... hah!! that's wachu think!!!

I picked up a couple of base/top coats & a couple of China Glaze n/p's... 

the ever so popular Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
- we'll see if it's deserving of all the attention it's getting from a lot of beauty bloggers
Nail Magic Nail Hardener & Conditioner
- I asked the girls there at Sally's what nail strengther she would recommend (coz 1-2 nails always chip on the sides which causes it to get caught on clothes & just anything fabric.. I always end up pulling or cutting it & end up having 2 short nails which is NOT cute!).. she pointed me to this one... we shall see if she was endorsing a product that don't sell or if she's being honest... LOL

Nail Magic claims this product to be proven effective of:

China Glaze Lacquers
(L-R) Secret Peri-Wink-Le & Lemon Fizz
- the Lemon Fizz is the last one they have on their Up & Away display.. girl said they're not getting anymore from that collection so I just grabbed it... ***sigh*** I am weak!!
