The first three of these pictures have been edited using Picasa's "one-click fix for lighting." I like how it brightened up everything. You can really see the difference when you look at the fourth (last) photo, which has not been edited.
I am loving the smooth, easy texture of Le Metier de Beaute's eyeshadows and also the excellent pigmentation. Maybe they are too buttery, though, because Fig (the plum) likes to crease on my occasionally creasey left eye. I'm pretty sure I've worn Corinthian without it creasing, so perhaps it varies color to color.
Do you see how high my right brow arches up when I smile big? Years ago, on my wedding day, the photographer kept telling me all day long, to "stop doing that thing with your eyebrow!" Uh...yeah. That's how my face works. Ha ha! It's naturally just higher and more arched anyhow. I'm a little miffed at myself for not getting the crease color up high enough on my poor left eye.

Immediately after I took these pictures I realized that the lip color was too cool with the eyes. I added MAC Dare to Wear Lipglass in Wind Me Up (bronzey-pinky-gold) and that fixed everything just fine! I wish I had taken pictures of that.
I need to rave about Korres' lip butters. I just bought a huge value set on sephora.com (three butters and three glazes) and have become instantly obsessed! The butters in particular feel utterly amazing on my lips! The glazes are really nice, too. If you have not tried them, I highly encourage you to do so.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
