No filter on either of them, just enhanced the contrast to show the true color. Smiley Happy 


FacE: Giorgo Armani silk foundation

Fawn abh contour

a bit of highlight from the same contour kit

palladio rice powder

tarte finishing powder

ud brow box 


vice 2 palette

kat von d trooper (messed up the wing so i tried add little "feathers" to it

sephora matte white shadow

MUFE mascara extravagant


revlon matte balm in sultry


Edited to say that I added some satin eyeshadow from the vice 2 palette on my lips hence the shininess in the center. And even though it's not filtered in the first pic, the natural lighting in my room kind of washed out the color in the first picture. But the 2nd is true to color Smiley Happy 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Love what you did with the lip color! I was going to ask if it was a KVD Foiled lipstick Smiley Very Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

I remember lylysa saying to try putting gold pigment on my red lips to go with my look and I tried it with this deep mauve looking lipstick and added one of the pinky satiny shadows on the center. If you can believe it, it's the same that I used above my black liner, it looked champagne-y in person. I might have to invest in a pretty color liquid liner. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Very pretty. I love the foundation!

Thank you! I was at sephora today and they gave me some ysl matte foundation too, I'm going to try that as well, though the armani one is killllin it! 

Re: What are you wearing today?

The feather idea is really clever!  I've done a double wing to cover a screw up, lol.  LOVE the lips!

Please excuse the terrible lighting! This is what I wore out last night.



-EL Double Wear (I know I can always rely on this to last through anything!)

-TheBalm's TimeBalm concealer in Medium

-TF Chocolate Soleil Bronzer (Been using this lately to match my face to my more-tanned body)

-Becca Rose Gold highlighter

-NARS Deep Throat Blush



-TF Chocolate Bar Palette

-Jesse's Girl liquid eyeliner

-Lancome Hypnose Drama

-ABH Brow Gel

-ABH Brow Powder Duo in Medium Brown

-OFRA Brow Pencil (love this stuff, it's the perfect shade for me and doesn't budge)

-Sephora eye pencil in some light cream shade to highlight and define brows (definitely going to add this more often, really cleans the look up)



-MAC Archie's Girl Lipstick in Ronnie Red (much more bold and pink in person, it scared me a bit but really brightened up my face)

Re: What are you wearing today?

I know you said that the lipstick is actually a bold pink, but the true red in the picture is superrrrr flattering on you as well!

Hehe thanks! I love reds, wish I had occasion to wear them more often!


Re: What are you wearing today?

girl don't be afraid of the bold lips on you. they always look amazing !

Re: What are you wearing today?

Agreed. You look fantastic with a bold lip.

Aw, thanks!! <3 I'm just afraid it looks too much, I'm always afraid of standing out haha. I think with a little more confidence I'll get over it. I do love the effect!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love that lip color. It must be even better in person!  How do you like the Becca Rose Gold highlighter?  I kind of want to get it but I can't decide (I have Mary Luminizer from the Balm and I can't tell if the Becca one is different enough to warrant a purchase!).  

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks!! It's a really bright reddish-pink. I'll try to take a better picture next time I wear it Smiley Wink


I really like the Rose Gold highlighter, it looks especially good with a tan/deeper skin tones. It's different from the Mary Lou Manizer, because it's rose gold and Mary Lou is labelled as "honey-hued". In my opinion it's definitely worth picking up if you think it's a color that works for you!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I haven't seen it in stores so I've yet to swatch it but I'm going to hunt it down.  Thanks for the info & mini-review Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

I stayed home today because of period pains T-T. This was pretty much how I felt:

Re: What are you wearing today?

Yesterday's look.  I blended the lip liner, so I did not notice until I saw the pictures that the lines looked harsh.  Oh well.  I also had slight creasing on my shadows, so I am going to try a different eye primer on the next day I wear makeup.

New Items (will look up colors later if people are curious)

Julep Bronzer- I have been going out of my way to purchase kits with Julep makeup lately, and I am unsure why.  This color was decent, but the product had a lot of fallout.  It is very pigmented though, so even with the wasted product from fallout, this will last a long time.

Kevyn Aucoin Blush- Holy pigmentation, Batman.  This is the most pigmented blush I've ever tried.  I barely put any on and looked like a straight up clown.  There was no fallout, and the powder feels very nice.  It would probably look amazing on darker skin.  I have to decide whether to TSB it or learn to apply it very, very, very lightly.  It really is beautiful and I own nothing else from the brand, so I would hate to see it go.

Laura Geller Eyeshadow- I generally like her shadow, but I am not certain I liked this one.  It took forever to get the product out.  Once I was able to break the seal (so to speak) it was fallout central.  I applied it last, so I did not get to see how it looked on its own.  I will ensure I apply it first next time I try it.

By Terry Eyeshadow- At $40 for a single shadow (I got it on sale, so I did not pay that, thankfully), I expected more.  It was not as pigmented as I would have liked and did not blend well with the other shadows.  I will give it another shot though.

Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick in Lovecraft- The formula was lovely.  I adore the color.  It lasted a long time.  The picture was post eating and after hours of application.

Marc Jacobs Highliner Brown- This glides on like no eyeliner I've ever seen.  The formula is amazingly smooth and easy to apply.  I got great lines without streaks or patchiness on my first pass.  I did not even mind the micro glitter in the formula and thought the color was very pretty.  Basically, I'm in love.
