FOTD: PHAME Expo 2013

The first PHAME (Professional Hair and Makeup Expo) got underway today. Now that IMATS has morphed into… well… something else, this pro-invite event lured several hundred makeup adventure seekers to Pasadena to see what’s what.

Now, it’s 100+ degrees these days (no… really), so I was not interested in wearing anything that would crease, run or otherwise make me look like a melted ice cream cone. So I kept it clean:

Elizabeth Arden Smoky Powder Pencil in Black (waterline/lashline)

FOTD: Boys Don’t Cry

I dug into the other NARS + Pierre Hardy Blush. These things are SO pigmented… a little bit goes a very long way.

NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer (Malaga)
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (Ginger)
NARS Blush in Boys Don’t Cry
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Zero (waterline)
Guerlain Maxi Lash Mascara
Lip Fusion Gloss in Summer

FOTD: Elllis Faas & Het Loo

I had just a teeny bit of time today, but I wanted to give the Ellis Faas foundation a run. It performed wonderfully. In case anyone is wondering why I ended up with my color, and a darker one… it’s in preparation for the summer, when I will undoubtedly tan.
