FOTD: Chen Man (#3)

Didn’t I say I would do swatches? SMH… they’re coming. Everything just keeps getting pushed further back in my life this week. A lot going on… all good though.

Anyway, here’s the third look with items from the Chen Man Collection:

FACE
Chanel Perfection Lumiere (Beige Ambre 64)

EYES

This FOTD is a little of this… a little of that…

FOTD: Earthly Desire

I used my favorite of the two Nvey Eco Color Duo palettes, in Earthly Desire. The colors are warm, and totally flattering for my skin tone:

FACE
Chanel Perfection Lumiere (Beige Ambre 64)
Chantecaille Loose Powder (Shadow)
IMAN Sunlit Copper Blush
EYES
Nvey Eco Color Duo in Earthly Desire:
Copper on Lids

Dior Mitzah Mascara
Le Metier de Beaute Color Core Lipstick in Nevis
Chanel Glossimer in Gold Light
I took the pictures with and without flash because I felt like the colors translated so different in natural light. This is about to be my favorite eyeshadow duo. It is SO freakin’ easy to use… I love it.

FOTD: Inspired by Lisa Eldridge

This look was inspired by a look that Makeup Artist Lisa Eldridge did on an X Factor regular. She did a soft winged eye, strong brows,  a pale pink cheek, and a pale pink lip. I found the look soft but sultry, and I really wanted to see how it would translate on my warmer skin tone:

FOTD: Metallic Smoke

I wanted to smoke out my eyes with metallic colors… but I didn’t want them to get lost (sometimes when you blend too many shimmers the colors lose their identity), so I mixed two distinctly different shimmers/textures.
