Bridesmaid look/ work makeup – purple and pink and brown

Another possible bridesmaid look (see first post in this series here). In retrospect, I would deepen the purple in the outer V and make the eye makeup a little more structured so that it photographs better at a distance. I contoured with my bronzer, but I think a proper contouring shade (lately I’ve been using the Face Of Australia duo, which I quite like) is definitely called for.

Now that I think about it- it’s not really a bridal look at all. It’s more of a 9 to 5 work makeup look. Oh well.

Eyes:

- Urban Decay Buck eyeshadow from the Naked Palette blended all over the top lid until just past the crease.

- Matte aubergine shade from  Tom Ford Orchid Haze quad blended in outer V and smudged lightly under bottom lashline.

-  pale pink frosty shade from the Jane Iredale Getaway Palette applied wet close to the top lashline on the inner 1/2.

-  Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink to line.

Cheeks:

- MAC Peaches blush on apples

- MAC Bronzing Powder in Bronze to contour

Lips:

- NARS Velvet Matte pencil in Dolce Vita

- I layered NARS Pillow Talk gloss on top on the bottom photo – I think that photographs better, what do you think?

Glowy Monochromatic Work Makeup FOTD

Glowy Monochromatic Work Makeup FOTD with Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage and Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush

I still can’t seem to get Dolce and Gabbana S/S 2013 out of my head. I adore Pat McGrath’s Sicilian summer inspired makeup, and often wear some variation of that glowy cats eye. This is one that I wore to work- a very neutral monochromatic look that I’m fond of when I want to look polished, but don’t want to think too hard.

Soft Olive Smoky Eye featuring MAC Flourishing and Sumptious Olive

Olive Smoky Eye featuring MAC Flourishing and Sumptious Olive

 

This FOTD was photographed over a month ago (that’s how far behind my posts are), and I was still in Melbourne. It was a pretty frantic few weeks- I was packing for my move out of Melbourne, flying interstate for a postgrad oral exam, trying to squeeze in as many catchups as I could, and trying to sell my furniture.

My makeup that day was supposed to be my attempt at incorporating greens and ‘spring’ colours into my look, but of course it came out very much a Fall makeup look. Nevertheless I quite like the combination of MAC Flourishing and Sumptious Olive- the golden sheen from Sumptious Olive gives the eye makeup a subtle glow.

Estee Lauder Pretty Naughty Palette and Naked Pure Color Sheer Matte Lipstick: Review, and Swatches

Estee Lauder Pretty Naughty Palette

 

The Estee Lauder Pure Color Eyeshadow Palette in Pretty Naughty (90 AUD) has been recently released in Australia as part of their Pretty Naughty Spring 2013 collection. The palette combines soft pastels (the ‘pretty’) with a bold charcoal centre (the ‘naughty’)- allowing you to create both soft day time looks and dramatic smoky eyes.

I don’t often use pastels or very ‘spring’ type colours regularly, so this palette has forced me to explore out of my comfort zone. I like that, and I think I will be dabbling in this colour family more over the coming Spring months in Australia. The quality of the shadows is great- finely milled, and some of these are surprisingly pigmented (particularly  the charcoal black, the aqua blue, and the lilac shades).

The shades in this palette include a matte light aqua blue, a bronzey taupe shimmer, a lilac shimmer, a satin finish pale cool pink, and a shimmery charcoal in the centre. These are great colours for Spring, and the way I like to use this palette is to use two to three of these colours together in combination with other matte neutrals in my stash- I don’t think I can pull off wearing all five of these colours in the palette together in one look (although Paris from My Women Stuff does this very well).

Stay tuned for the upcoming FOTD featuring this palette!

Star Struck: Dior Bonne Etoile FOTD

Dior Bonne Etoile FOTD seafoam green and blue eye makeup

 

I wore a soft smoky eye last weekend, using my new Dior 5 Couleurs palette in Bonne Etoile (French for ‘lucky star’). The shadows are so finely milled and silky looking on the eye it’s unbelievable (swatches and detailed photos in my previous review).  I quite like the dreamy quality of this colour combination- what do you think?
