FOTD: Shimmer and Matte

This is what happens when you grab a bunch of stuff without a plan, and slap it together. SMH. I’m not a big fan of this look, but I’m dealing with it…

FOTD: IMATS

So, I’m finally back after spending ALL DAY at IMATS. I never used to do that. Blame Bianca (MUA) for this one… I was all set to go and she dragged me to a class by Iman/Tyra Banks’ makeup artist, and I’m so glad she did! But I’m getting ahead of myself.

First, here is the makeup I did for the show today. My motto was easy clothes, simple makeup and comfortable shoes.

Armani Loose Powder in 02
Armani Sheer Bronzer in #2

Giorgio Armani Summer 2011: Sheer Bronzer #2

Score!

Call it the ungettable get… Armani’s new Sheer Bronzer in #2 is not available at conventional stores (Neimans, Bloomies and Nordstrom are only carrying #1 and #5), and it’s out of stock on the website.

By chance, I called the boutique in Las Vegas… and they had one!

It arrived today, and was totally worth the wait:

If #1 is a brownish rose (I posted pictures here: http://shahadakarim.blogspot.com/2011/06/browsing-summer-2011.html, and #5 is a bright golden coral, #2 is a distinct mauve-gold shimmer…

It’s not a bronzer, unless you know someone who bronzes mauve-gold. It’s definitely a blush. I even played with it as an eyeshadow, and it totally works. Love it!

I pick up #1 next week… as part of a pre-sale. I think I may get #5 as well. For now, I am quite happy with #2. It’s gorgeous!
