FOTDs and holiday pics from Hanoi, Vietnam :) ++ (very pic heavy!)

Haiii MUB! I've been gone for aaages, and thought I'd return with some holiday FOTDs and pics a la Laitae. :)








Capsule holiday makeup:

Base: Shu Nobara in 564, set with Guerlain Pressed Meteorites in Teint Beige. I used UD setting spray on top but I think it broke me outů :/
Cheeks: Pink Ice from Sleek's Pink Sprint trio, and MGPIN contour powder.
Eyes: L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic and Dollywink Liquid Eyeliner in Black. I wore Chanel Moon River in the first two photos.
Lips: 1) Revlon Sweet Tart, 2) Maybelline Shocking Coral, 3) SUQQU CG 18

And here are some pics from my birthday trip to Hanoi :)

Golden Turtle Tower in Hoan Kiem Lake. They have an Arthurian legend where a sword emerged from the lake but this time twas not a bedraggled lady but a golden turtle who proffered the sword. :


Part of a 1-day trip to Hoa Lu Tam Coc. A much less touristy but equally beautiful sight compared to Ha Long Bay (not that I've been but that was what I was told):





A hilarious store sign and FOOD:



Hope you enjoyed these photos, and sorry for spamming you all! I am surprised that I don't look sweatier than I do in these pictures; the humidity was ridiculous. I did have to touch up a lot during the day due to sweating profusely but apart from that the makeup held up well. I do quite enjoy the Shu foundation as it's very easy to apply and a great match for my skintone. I didn't bring any concealer and it did a very good job at hiding my red acne scars and volcanic eruptions. :)
