I want to make this a short one, because I’m typing this at the very last minute and yet, I want to show you. If you didn’t know already, I’m not a big fan of Chanel eye palettes because we get the baked ones here. However, this palette I’m going to show you is not baked and also, it’s a neutral palette. I can never have enough neutrals (somebody please stop me!) and I got sucked into this one because it just looked too good to pass. Look at that cult Chanel quilt motif on the eye shadows!
Truthfully, I haven’t really been doing much makeup. I’m stuck in a rut where I just apply concealer, set with powder, fill in brows, mascara, blush and lipstick. That’s about it. I guess the morning rush has LOTS to do with it! Today, I just want to show you what I wore last night to my sister in law’s wedding dinner. My hair was done by a lady who came to our house. She even curled Chloe’s and Ashlyn’s hair. Overpriced, but convenient.
What colours do you think of when it’s Fall / Autumn? Golds, maroons, burgundies, khakis… rich beautiful arrays of shades that mother nature has to offer and it’s all love. Fall is my favourite season, and it’s the same when it comes to makeup collections. Today, I want to feature an old blush that is rich and bold, not for the faint hearted or the heavy handed. I present to you Rouge.
I didn’t know what I wanted to post this week, but I thought I’d play with creams. I’ve been using quite a bit of Dior and Chanel cream eye shadows, and the 2 colours I love to pair together are Dior Meteore (golden bronze) and Chanel Illusoire (light silvery purple taupe). There have been differing opinions about the textures of these 2 cream shadows, and when I compared them side by side, touch by touch, Dior definitely feels bouncier while my Illusoire feels harder in the pot. Dior also dries more powdery and feels less wet – and let it be known that the Chanel ones are NOT wet either. Anyway, here they are, and here’s a look I created with these 2.
