I haven’t done any major smoke around these eyes in a minute. So I figured now was as good a time as any…

Chantecaille Loose Powder (Shadow)
NARS Blush in Gaiety
MAC (Daphne Guinness) Pigment in Nebula (lids/under waterline)
Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in Divine (blended through crease)

MAC w/ Daphne Guinness: Lip Swatches

I’m so late…

Here are the lip swatches that I promised you guys a few posts back.

Cremesheen Glass in Narcissus
Pro Longwear Lip Pencil in More To Love
Pro Longwear Lip Creme in Red Dwarf
Pro Longwear Lip Creme in Approaching Storm
For the record, ‘Approaching Storm’ is much deeper, almost goth in natural light. The flash kept blowing this color out. I’ll show you what I mean in an upcoming FOTD.
Ciao for now!

FOTD: More Daphne Guiness

I used some more stuff from the MAC for Daphne Guiness Collection. I’m learning that you have to use a light hand with pretty much all of the pieces… they are all highly pigmented. A little goes a long way.

Chanel Perfection Lumiere (Beige Ambre 64)
Kevyn Aucoin Radiant Diaphanous Powder
MAC Blush in Azalea Blossom
NARS Eyeshadow in Mekong (lids/under waterline)
MAC Pigment in Circa Plum (crease/under waterline)
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero (waterline)
Guerlain Noir G Mascara
MAC Lipstick in Red Dwarf

FOTN: New Years Eve

While most of the makeup mavens decided to pile on tons of glitter, shimmer, and more glitter… I went a different route.
Hubby and I dined here:

…and the atmosphere called for something a little less… ostentatious. So I used some of my favorites from the new MAC Daphne Guinness collection to get the job done.

Dolce & Gabbana The Foundation
Dolce & Gabanna Powder Foundation
MAC Blush Ombre in Vintage Grape
MAC Pigment in Aurora (lids)
MAC Pigment in Nebula (crease)
Tarte Eye Pencil in Black (lashline/outer crease/under waterline)
Guerlain Retractable Eye Pencil in Gold (waterline)
Guerlain Noir G Mascara
MAC Lipstick inVioletta
MAC Cremesheen Glass in Narcissus

MAC: Daphne Guinness

I was totally interested in this collection:

So when it came out, I got all of the colors that I thought were the most lovely:

Ombre Blushes in Vintage Grape and Azalea Blossom, Pigments in Circa Plum, Nebula, and Aurora… Cremesheen Glass in Narcissus, and Pro Longwear Lip Cremes in Approaching Storm and Red Dwarf. In the center is the new Chromagraphic Lip Pencil in More To Love (not part of the Daphne Guinness Collection).
