Beauty Breakdown: Contoured Natural

The first in a series of pictures have come back from the recent shoot I did with Nadirah Bahar and Edo. I wanted to keep some of the shots as ‘natural’ as possible (we were shooting in natural lighting with no additional ‘help’ from artificial light sources, but I still wanted to emphasize Edo’s incredible bone structure with a little contour.

Lip Service: Lip Fusion Gloss in Goddess

I can’t seem to get enough of this formula. The Lip Fusion Gloss in Goddess was not my first choice, because honestly I thought it would go ashy on me. But when I put it on… it became part of my face… like, it nearly disappeared (but in a good way). Observe…

The color is opaque enough to even out my pigmented lips… but the color is like my lips on their very  best day on Earth. I wore it with just mascara and a little tinted moisturizer and the result was polished and effortless. I love it.

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 Service: Lip Fusion Gloss in Fresh

Okay, this is my last peach lippie post for a while… I think. Lip Fusion’s Gloss in ‘Fresh’ is such a perfect complementary peach on such a wide range of skin tones, I think it’s worth shouting about.

Even on my pigmented lips, it evens everything out and give my mouth a warm peach flush…

Fabulous. You can find out more about Lip Fusion Glosses HERE.

FOTD: Boca Babe

I recently scored several Lip Fusion glosses. I’ve never used their products before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I already have full lips… so ‘plumping’ (their specialty) is not something that I’m really interested in. But it turned out to be okay.
