Bronzers are everywhere. Many blog posts I read are about Summer collections, so I got a little summerlicious bug First off, let me tell you that I do not like looking tanned. I prefer pale and pasty. When I’m tanned, I look dirty. Go figure! However, I see my Dior Aurora (from last year’s Summer collection) staring at me, and I had an itch to use it. I decided to make it a little warmer by layering a base before applying this bronzer. These are the 2 products I used for this effect.
This week, I decided to go khaki. I pulled out my mini Dior Royal Khaki quint and my Chanel Vert Khaki, along with Urban Decay pencil liner in Stash. Base products are pretty much the same. The same Diorsnow face powder which I have scheduled a review for (watch out for it next week), the Shiseido base that just. won’t. die. (ugh!), the Clarins Vitamin Pink blush that only has a quarter left, my ever faithful brow companion from Shu Uemura (review also out next week), and a sample mascara from Estee Lauder. I also added a highlighter in my routine and rekindled my love for Dior Amber Diamond. For lips, I decided something sheer so I stuck with Clinique Chubby Stick in Oversized Orange.
You have a wedding dinner to attend right after work. All you have time to do is to get a quick shower and probably touch up your face. Then you realize the eye shadows were a mess, the blush has faded and your face is in serious need of fresh foundation. I hate having to rush after a tiring day at work. However, I had no choice but to do the best I could.
As the title suggests, we decided to play with black this month. Different textures and gradients of black, or maybe even to use black as a base for something else. For me, I decided to go for a fuss free black block of eye shadow, nude lips and dark tips. I haven’t done a look like this before. I was thinking about a smokey eye, but there’s plenty on this blog already. Just go to the “LOOKS” tab and you’ll find them. This look is surprisingly easy, because I use minimal products, but it’s getting the eye shape and lashes right that took much of the time. My eyes aren’t symmetrical
