FOTD: Purple Smoky Eye Caramel Crease Feat. Urban Decay Naked Palette and MAC Uninterrupted

Purple Smoky Eye Caramel Crease Feat. Urban Decay Naked Palette and MAC Uninterrupted

 

Hi everyone,

I did a quick day time smoky eye last Sunday before heading off for (yet another) round of apartment hunting. I’ve been loving the combination of a warm matte crease with a cool lid colour lately- I think it’s very autumn appropriate and a nice change from my usual dove grey crease.

 

Purple Smoky Eye Urban Decay Naked Palette and MAC Uninterrupted

FOTD makeup breakdown:

Eyes:

- Too Faced Shadow Insurance to prime

- MAC Uninterrupted Pro Longwear eyeshadow blended all over the lid and just past the crease.

- Inglot Matte dark brown matte 329 (top left corner of my Inglot freedom palette pictured below) applied to the mobile lid. I’ve swatched matte 329 in this post. 

-  Urban Decay Hustle eyeshadow from the Naked Palette (third from the right) blended on top of the Inglot. I also blended Hustle under the bottom lashline.

- Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink to line upper lashline and bottom waterline.

- L’Oreal Color Riche Le Khol in Immaculate Snow applied to the inner corners of the eyes and blended with a pencil brush

- Bobbi Brown Shimmer Eyeshadow in Champagne applied on top

Vera Wang S/S 2013 inspired bridal makeup FOTD

Vera Wang S/S 2013 inspired bridal makeup FOTD

 

Hi all,

One of the looks from the last Ready To Wear shows at NYFW that I really wanted to try was the makeup done for Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2013 (see the images in my Fashion Week coverage post).

The ethereal quality and the warm of the makeup worked perfectly with the romanticism of the India- inspired spring collection in my opinion. I also thought that the look created for this Vera Wang show would be a great option for bridal makeup if you prefer a more natural look over a classic smokey eye. There is a nice subtle shimmer in both the lips and the eyes, which I quite like. The one thing missing is a Vera Wang wedding gown!

I hope you enjoy this FOTD, I’ve listed and photographed products used below :)

Viva Glam V: The Universal Lipstick

 

Hello and welcome to another Liptick Bandits post (if you’re unfamiliar with these posts- our Lipstick Bandits team from around the world simultaneously blog about pressing issues like our favourite fall lipstick, the perfect red, etc).

For this instalment, the Lipstick Bandits decided to vote on the ultimate universally flattering lipstick. We decided on Viva Glam V because:

a) It looks good on pretty much everyone

b) It’s available worldwide and is part of MAC’s permanent collection.

c) Every cent from the sale of this lipstick goes to the MAC AIDS fund which supports men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS.

Viva Glam V is described as a ‘neutral pink with pearl’, Lustre finish lipstick by MAC. On my lips it looks like a light mauvey pink with silvery white microshimmer.

It goes on sheer and feels balmy on the lips. Very wearable.

First Date Makeup… (or not): FOTD feat. NARS Chihuahua Lip Gloss

It’s ridiculous of me to think I can suggest a makeup look for anyone’s first date.

Everyone has a different style, and I think that you should look like yourself on a date- and if you’re into bold, crazy makeup looks every other day, your first date shouldn’t be any different. And god knows I haven’t had a ‘first date’ for years…

But I can’t think of another title for this post- so it stays. :)

I was delighted to rediscover an unopened NARS Chihuahua lipgloss that I had purchased over 6 months ago totally forgotten about (it was languishing in my basket of things I needed to photograph and review). For the past week or so I have been using this pretty much every day, and I can’t believe I ever lived without it.

NARS Chihuahua lip gloss is a medium petal pink which is pigmented enough to show up quite well on my darkish lips, and is one of the few light pinks out there that don’t make me look like a hooker (always a plus on a date!). It’s non-sticky, feels luxuriously cushiony on the lips, and has a pretty decent wear time for a light coloured gloss.
