So, I traded in the Rouge G in Bianca for a much better color (at a much better price)… the Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Flirt:
It’s a much better color. Better formula, much better pigment… and cheaper to boot! The Rouge G Lipsticks retail for $47… the Rouge Automatique Lipsticks are $35. My wallet was very happy about this little trade. I love this color. I actually wore it for an FOTD:
Guerlain Parure Extreme (Dore 24)
Chanel Loose Powder (Dore)
NARS Blush in Orgasm
Louise Young Eyeshadow in Pom Pom (brows)
Chanel Eyeshadow in Twilight (lids)
Chanel Eyeshadow in Taupe Grise (crease)
NARS Eyeshadow in Mekong (lashline/under outer waterline)
Sumita Eyeliner in Deep Plum
Armani Eyes to Kill Intense Mascara in Night Violet
Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Flirt
I wanted to do a ‘smoky eye’ with one color (sort of) and a paint. So I pulled out the Chanel Taupe Grise eyeshadow from the Autumn 2010 Collection and the MUFE Aqua Cream in #18 (the lavender one). Here’s the result:
I just popped the cream on the lid with my fingers, then used a fluffy brush to dust the Taupe shadow almost up to the brow. I took a small shader and patted on the color on the outer lid and in the crease, then blended through. Easy peasy.
The eyeliner on my waterline is MAC Raven, and the mascara is from Rock & Republic.
Rest of the face was simple: foundation, powder, lip gloss, done.
Total work time: 15 minutes.
