FOTD: Browned Rose

Simple look today… with just a bit of brown and touch of pink…

FOTD: Orange & Brown

Now, it’s true that when I’m rushing… I tend to reach for orange. It’s a flattering color on me, really easy to blend into my warmed toned skin, and hard for me to screw up:

Chanel Perfection Lumiere (Beige Ambre 64)
Kevyn Aucoin Diaphonous Radiance Powder
Armani Blushing Fabric in Sienna
Chantecaille Whale Compact (highlight)

FOTD: Vanities

I FINALLY got around to doing an FOTD… I know it’s been a while. I used the new Chanel Vanities Quad. Once again, that golden purple color is DIVINE. It has officially pulled me away from MAC Trax:

Illamasqua Skin Base (#14 and #15)
Chanel Loose Powder (Dore)
Chanel Soho Story Blush
Chanel Vanities Quad:
Shimmer Purple on lids
Dark Purple on outer crease
Shimmer pink on inner corner
Pale Pink on browbone
Clinique Gel Liner on lashline
Chanel Eye Pencil in Taupe on waterline
Chanel Intimitable Intense Mascara (Purple)
Shiseido Shimmering Rouge Lipstick in Iron Maiden

FOTD: Terre Indigo (Orange)

I pulled out my Guerlain Terre Indigo eyeshadow palette… this time using orange as the focus:

MAC Eyeshadow in Studied Brown (brows)
Guerlain Terre Indigo Eyeshadow Palette:
Orange on the lids and under waterline
Medium brown blended through the crease
Clinique Gel Liner (lashline)
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Lucky
Maybelline Falsies Mascara
Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation 
(sheered out with moisturizer)
YSL Creme blush in Audacious Orange
Guerlain Terracotta Lip Gloss in 08

FOTD: Pink Pop (II)

It’s been a while since I rocked the traffic-stopping pink that is Armani’s Pink 520. So I dragged myself upright and did an FOTD:

Hourglass Veil Foundation (6.0)
 NARS Orgasm Blush
Chanel Lip Pencil in Framboise
Rouge d’ Armani in Pink 520
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly (lids)
MAC Pigment in Lithe (lids)
Clinique Gel Liner (lashline)
Armani Waterproof Pencil in #2 (waterline)
Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara 
Ardell Half Lashes

** You see how annoyed my skin looks. It’s gotten so sensitive this summer, that’s why I had to simplify things. Time to get back to basics: clean/exfoliate/moisturize. **

FOTD: Light Over Dark

You guys know that the Diorskin Nude foundation is a little dark for me… Well, the Diorskin Forever foundation that I have (040) is a little light for me. So today I used both: The NUDE around the edges and FOREVER in the middle of my face:

Diorskin Nude (around the edge of the face)
Diorskin Forever (in the middle of the face)
By Terry Touche Veloutee
Illamasqua Blush in Expose and Nymph (double blush)
Chanel Loose Powder in Dore
Louise Young Eyeshadow in Ting (lashline to brow)
Chanel Eyeshadow in Taupe Gris (crease)
Clinique Gel Liner
MAC Eye Pencil in Smolder
Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara
NARS Lipstick Tzigane

EOTN: Go Team!

This is for my little sister:

For those of you outside the US, my team (Green Bay Packers) won the Superbowl. It’s a pretty big freakin’ deal. My sister is a fan of the enemy (Pittsburgh Steelers). She was rooting for the Steelers, I was rooting for the Packers.  I’m not a regular fan… just a fan for the big game.
Now, the winning team has some pretty ugly colors, but I still wanted to represent by flying the Packers colors. Here’s what I used:

MAC Sassy Grass (lid)
Rock & Republic Fatalistic (crease)
Make Up  For Ever #71
Clinique Gel Liner
Ardell False Lashes

FOTN: Sparkle Stuff

Here’s another reason why I can’t be left to my own devices with kits full of makeup and too much time on my hands…

Guerlain Parure Extreme
Chanel Loose Powder
Cargo Lumieres Blush/Highlighter
MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
Cargo Lumieres Shimmer Brown Shadow
MAC Eyeshadow in She Who Dares
Clinique Gel Liner
MAC Eyeliner in Smolder
Buxom Mascara
MAC Cremesheen Lip Gloss in Overindulgence

FOTD: Burnt Orange

I wanted to use the ‘Sislet’ color from the Louise Young Essential Eye Palette. It really is the best color of the bunch. She’d do well to sell it as a single:

Guerlain Parure Gold (06)
Chanel Loose Powder (Dore)
Nars Blush in Luster
Louise Young Eyeshadow in Sislet (lids)
Louise Young Eyeshadow in Pom Pom (blended just above crease)
Louise Young Eyeshadow in Ting (browbone)
Stila Smudgestick in Stone (waterline)
Clinique Gel Liner (lashline)
By Terry Terrybly Mascara
MAC Lip Pencil in Mouth Off
Shiseido Lipstick in OR418

FOTD: This Ore That…

I couldn’t wait to dig into my Illamasqua Ore pigment. Imagine my disappointment when the shimmer just  REFUSED to show up on camera:

This look is VERY shimmery in real life… you’ll just have to trust me on that. Every time I blinked, my lids caught the light. The Ore pigment is just stunning. I’m contemplating a backup, before it’s all sold out!
