Scene & Heard: Women In Sports/Events (In Pictures)

I headed over to Brentwood for the WISE (Women In Sports & Events) event at Vicente Salon… sponsored by Stila:

FOTD: Bright Shimmer

This was a rush job… it was important that I do SOMETHING to my face (I had a makeup meeting) but I had just ‘minutes’ to toss this together:

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar (as blush)
MAC Eyeshadow in Cranberry (under waterline)
Pop Beauty Gel Eyeliner (lashline)
L’Oreal HIP Kohl in Burgundy (waterline)
MAC False Lashes Mascara
Chanel Glossimer in Calypso
Chanel Glossimer in Gold Light

Professional Grade: Wedding Belle

My Little Sister Shelley (daughter of my mentor) is in a wedding today, and she is also playing ‘hostess.’ So she didn’t want to do her makeup herself, and she wanted to make sure that it lasted all day. So she came by and asked me to do something nude and glowing.

The bride’s colors are pink and blue…so I slid a little pink in there to bring the look together:

Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer
Illamasqua Skin Base in #14
Armani Fluid Sheer in #11 (as blush)
By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Misty Rock (lids)
Tarte For True Blood Eyeliner (lashline)
Guerlain Retractable Eye Pencil in #01 (waterline) 
Velour Mink Lashes in Complete Me
DEX Lip Gloss in Christopher Street Orchid

Lip Service: MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Natural (N43)

I finally gave up trying to resist the amazing orange lipstick that is MAKE UP FOR EVER Rouge Artist Natural in N43. It’s a creamy opaque color, that looks amazing on my warm skintone:

I used it for an FOTD, and fell in love. The color is REALLY intense, but it works well as long as it’s the focal point of the face.

On the rest of my face: 
NARS Liberte Blush
Armani Eyes To Kill Silk Eyeshadow in #2 (lashline/under waterline)
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Perversion

FOTD: Lady Danger

This freakin’ lipstick…OMG. It’s POTENT! I just put a little around the edges and it was STILL too much. I cannot use this lipstick straight out of the tube. For best results, I’m going to need a lip brush…

FOTD: Dark Brown Smoke n’ Orange

I pulled double duty yesterday… and my makeup had to be both functional and fabulous for about 16 hours. So I primed the heck out of my skin, and went with something that didn’t need a lot of maintenance throughout the day:
