FOTD: Kaska Burgundy?

Chanel’s Quad in Kaska Beige is one of the most versatile of the bunch. Typically, when I use this palette, it’s to use the gold or taupe color in it (both of which are nearly down to the pan). But today, I went for the burgundy color, which doesn’t normally get a lot of love from me:

Guerlain Parure Gold (Beige 06)
Chanel Loose Powder (Dore)
Chanel Blush in Plum Attraction
Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (Highlight)
Chanel Quad in Kaska Beige:
Burgundy color on the lids
Taupe color through the crease
YSL Shocking Liner Pen (lashline)
Chanel Eye Pencil in Grenat (waterline)
Guerlain Noir G Mascara
Chantecaille Hydra Chic Lipstick in Willow

FOTD: Statement Lip with Black Orchid

I had to go to a birthday party, in the rain, after a full day of running around… so I kept the makeup simple. The order of the day was a statement lip. So I chose Tom Ford’s Black Orchid to get the job done:

Tom Ford Traceless Foundation in Praline
Chanel Loose Powder (Dore)
Chanel Blush in Espleigle
Chanel Quad in Kaska Beige:
Light Beige from lashline to brow
Bronze in the crease
Armani Wateproof Pencil in Brown on the waterline
Rock & Republic Eyeshadows in Tribal and Fatalistic on the brows
Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara
Tom Ford Lipstick in Black Orchid

FOTD: Bridal Party

I was the last person to get ready. It’s always like that… I show up barefaced, get everyone else ready and then slap some makeup on my own face:

Illamasqua Skin Base (#14)
Kevyn Aucoin Diaphonous Radiance Powder
Guerlain Terra Inca Radiant Powder (blush)
Rock & Republic eyeshadow in Fatalistic on brows
Chanel Kaska Biege Quad:
Purple Shimmer on lids
Purple Matte In crease
Beige Matte on browbone
Chanel Eye Pencil in Cassis on waterline
Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara
Naimies Half Lashes
Laura Mercier Lipstick in Bing Cherry
