Okay. I've been seriously slacking on the posts. Sorry for that! Here are a whole mess of looks from the last week +. This first one features Shu Uemura's Prestigious Bordeaux palette. I used the blush in the palette, as well! That was a total pain in the bumsky to get on my brush because the pan is so tiny.
I'm wearing Beaute weightless lip creme in Trace. It's a really good nude for me. I was also testing out Nars Light Reflecting Powder (loose) - stay tuned for a freaky flash pic!
Prestigious Bordeaux is great for me, as long as I use a good base under the dark purple (I used Stila Smudge Stick in Tetra here).
Next is a face featuring really simple eyes with Laura Mercier Gilded Platinum eyeshadow. I also used a Tarte SmolderEyes pencil in Rainforest Black.
The lipstick is By Terry Grenadine Diablotine. I got it on super sale through Space NK recently!
Here is a look using the Ulta Lorac Mint palette. I look so tired here! It was kind of early in the morning. I used all the shimmery shades of eyeshadow as well as the lightest matte ivory shade.
This one below features Guerlain Terracotta Sun in the City, which I've used as eyeshadow and also a highlight. The liner is UD Lucky pencil and I used a darker brown in my crease (it's from Sephora's Moonshadow palette - the black and gold one).
I'm wearing BECCA Bronzing Skin Perfector, along with BECCA mineral powder, Dior Aurora 01 bronzer, and Hello Kitty blush (from the black and white Head of the Class palette). BECCA beach tint in Dragonfruit is on my lips.
The next look features the lovely Nars Cordura eyeshadow duo, a la smoky. I'm loving how my eyes look more blue here. I wore Dior Aurora as blush here and Lipstick Queen gloss in Saunter.
Also worth noting is that I'm wearing the Too Faced BB Cream in Snow Glow, along with the Nars Light Reflecting Loose. I think my skin looks really great!
Last, but not least, is a smoky look with shadows from Urban Decay's NYC book of shadows. I used Loaded, Bordello, Rockstar, and Perversion. I've done this look before and I imagine I may do it again! I just love it.
I'm wearing Illamasqua Naked Rose blush, Nars New Order (super shimmery in person), and Nars Albatross lip gloss.
I really wish I had bronzed my neck. It only takes about 10 seconds, but makes a big difference (at least, in pictures, where my neck often looks blindingly white compared to my face). Live and learn!
Thanks for stopping by and do let me know if you have questions about anything. I'm happy to ramble on more about these looks, as much as I can remember what I did/used. :) Aaaaand I'm going to try to get back to more regular posts (unless of course you like these monster posts).
