FOTD: More Orange

Okay, I think this is my last ‘orange’ FOTD for a while. I think.

FACE

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze
EYES
Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Orange Fizz (lids)
YSL Shocking Gel Liner in Deep Black ( lashline)

EOTD: Maybelline Stuff

I was recently on Holiday, and thought I’d packed my Armani Eyeliner Pencil. To my dismay, I realized that I left it in Los Angeles. So my little sister and I traipsed down to the local Walgreens to find an alternative. I ended up with the Maybelline Master Drama Eye Liner, and two Color Tattoo Cream Shadows. They are all EXCELLENT.

Here’s what happened:

EYES
Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in Yellow (lids)
Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadow in Fierce & Tangy (lids)
Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Shadow in Pomegranate Punk (crease)
Maybelline Cream Pencil in Midnight Master (lashline & waterline)
Armani Eyes to Kill Stretch Mascara
The two cream colors are the ones that stood out the most to me. The other colors I’m sure that I have dupes of, so I passed. But the formula stands up to Summer heat and my oily lids with absolutely no problem. I ended up going back for a few more of the eyeliner pencils. I feel like you can never have too many of those. I even popped a few in my purse for makeup emergencies.
Kudos to Maybelline… again. I’m already a fan of the Falsies lashes. This company continues to prove that it can stand up to its luxury counterparts, effortlessly and beautifully.

FOTD: Vivid Matte

I went back to the Senna Vivid Envelope, to see how some of the more intense shadows would perform.

FACE
Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup (4CN1)
Kevyn Aucoin Radiant Diaphanous Powder
Senna Blush in Chrome Orange
EYES
Senna Eyeshadow in Peacock (lid)
Senna Eyeshadow in Teak (crease)

Maybelline Falsies Mascara
LIPS

FOTD: Laura Mercier Lingerie

I decided to test out the purple ‘shimmer’ shadow of the new Laura Mercier Lingerie palette…

 FACE
Amore Pacific Skin Renewal Foundation
Koh Gen Do Translucent Powder
Laura Mercier Blush in Rose Desire
EYES
Laura Mercier Lingerie Eye & Cheek Palette:
African Violet (lids)
Rich Cocoa (crease)
Black Plum (outer corner)
NARS Eye Pencil in Rue Bonaparte (waterline)
Maybelline Falsies Mascara

LIPS
Kjaer Weis Lip Gloss in Sensuous Plum

FOTD: Rose/Gold Glow?

I’m always hesitant to try and do a ‘glowing’ makeup on my oily skin, because it always seems to come out more ‘greasy’ than ‘glowing.’ I know that I can cheat the effect with powders, but for some reason I always seem to head back to the creams.

Looking back, I should have really committed to the ‘glowing’ contrast. Ehhh… I’m working perfecting it:

FACE
Guerlain Parure Aqua
Chantecaille Aqua Blush in Daring
MAC Cream Color Base in Pearl (highlight)
EYES
Laura Mercier Cream Shadow in Rose Gold (lids)
NARS Eyeshadow in Galapagos (crease)
Armani Eyes To Kill Silk Eyeshadow in #13 (lashline)
Armani Silk Eye Pencil in Brown (waterline)
Maybelline Falsies Mascara

LIPS
YSL Rouge Pur Lustre in Bohemian Rose

FOTD: Blackened Bronze

I wanted to see what happened when I layered a matte black over a cool shimmer bronze. The result sort of reminds me of what would happen if I just used a single Armani Eyes To Kill Shadow (I think #15 would be the right choice)…

I pulled out my Guerlain Terre Indigo eyeshadow palette… this time using orange as the focus:
