FOTD: RCS Brilliance

I built a simple look around the new Las Vegas de Chanel RCS in Brilliance:

Amore Pacific Skin Renewal Foundation (206)
Kevyn Aucoin Radiant Diaphanous Powder
Chantecaille Aqua Blush in Brilliance
Chanel Eclosion Quad: Gold color on the lids
Tarte Eyeshadow in Werewolf in the crease
YSL Shocking Gel Liner in Deep Black on the lashline
Guerlain Retractable Gold Pencil on the waterline
Guerlain Noir G Mascara
Chanel Lip Pencil in Nude
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Brilliance

FOTD: Extreme Blue & Purple

I put the NARS Arabian Nights Palette to the test. But instead of a purple paint pot, I used blue (MAC Imaginary) to bring out the middle shadow in the trio:

Dior Skin Nude Foundation (051)
Korres Concealer in Tan
Rock & Republic Blush in Tease
MAC Paint Pot in Imaginary (lid/under waterline)
NARS Arabian Nights Trio: Middle Color (lids/under waterline)
Chanel Les Perles de Ombre: Burgundy Pearl (crease)
Tarte Eyeshadow in Werewolf (brows)
Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara
Gloss d’Armani in Pink 507

Professional Grade: Pinup

One of the twins popped by today for a vintage ‘pinup’ look. I’m actually glad that’s what she wanted… because I’m plotting out looks for an upcoming fashion show, and I think I want to do pinup on the models. Anyway, here’s what happened:

Chanel Blanc Iluminating Primer
Dior Forever Foundation in 040
MAC Prep & Prime Loose Powder
Sleek Contour Kit in Light (contour only)
Illamasqua Blush in Nymph
MAC Eyeshadow in Brule (all over)
MAC Eyeshadow in Soft Brown (crease/under waterline)
Chanel Eye Pencil in Clair (waterline)
YSL Gel Liner in Deep Black (lashline)
Tarte Mascara
Starlet False Lashes

Besame Lip Liner in Red Velvet
MAC Lipstick in Russian Red

FOTD: Sustainable Color

I used Sustainable (Kjaer Weis) and Vegan (Haughty Cosmetics) Color to complete this look:

Sisley Skinleya Cream Foundation (60)
Kevyn Aucoin Diaphonous Radiance Powder
Armani Blush in #6
Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in Cloud Nine (browbone)
Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in Earthy Calm (crease)
Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in Blue Wonder (lids)
By Terry Crayon Kohl Terrybly in Blue Vision (waterline)
Tarte Mascara
Haughty Cosmetics Lipgloss in Inspire

FOTD: Bronze & Red

I wanted to do something warm and wearable with bronze and red. So I pulled out some old favorites and matched them up with a couple of newcomers…

Armani Face Fabric in #5
Armani Sheer Bronzer in #5 (as blush)
Tarte Eyeshadow in Werewolf and Immortal (brows)
MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre (browbone)
IMAN Eyeshadow in Tiger Eye (lids/under waterline)
Tarte Eyeshadow in Werewolf (outer corner)
Tarte Eyeshadow in Immortal (lashline/under waterline)
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Zero
MAC False Lashes Mascara
Kate Spade Supercalifragilipstick In Adventerous Red

Giveaway: Tarte for True Blood (CLOSED)

I promised to give away the Tarte for True Blood eyeshadow palette, but in truth I really like the cheek stain and the lip stain too. So… I figured it would be best to put all the pieces together:

FOTD: Oil Slick

I wanted to try a new Cargo shadow that I got… that sort of resembles liquid glitter. I paired it with Chanel cream shadow in Mirifique for a quick look:

NARS Blush in Luster
Tarte for True Blood Eyeshadow in Werewolf (brows)
Cargo Metallico Wet/Dry Eyeshadow
Chanel Illusion d’ Ombre Cream Shadow in Mirifique
