FOTD: Pale Stuff

Using only the ‘pale’ portions of the new NARS Autumn 2011 Collection… I gingerly pulled together a pale face. I have to be careful with pale colors on my warm skin tone… as there is a fine line between ‘pale’ and ‘ashy’…

I’m breaking this up (because the shipments are coming in pieces)… but here are my first pics from the NARS Autumn 2011 collection:

Now the lip pencil is SO drying that I put some lip balm in the middle… and as you can see, it totally diffused the color. the true color is around the edges. This is a totally Goth Purple-Black color. You have been warned. I’d use it alone for a concept look, but otherwise I’m using it with a VERY light hand.
