Re: What are you wearing today?

I too believe skincare should be priority. Unfortunately I justa skincare routine when my wrinkles started showing.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I use any excuse to doll myself up, so I completely understand! Smiley Very Happy No reason to not pamper yourself and look fabulous just because!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Too funny! Your hubby should've been like, I have the best looking lady at Outback.

You would think - right - he gets snarky when he is hungry - I just gave him the stink eye and took my time finishing my make-up!!!

Spoiler

As promised, I used the new Tarte Pigment of Imagination Deluxe Cheek set (only $10)!  The blush (Mirage) is rather light, but I was able to build the color with a second pass.  I was able to get a nice highlight effect with the Champagne Highlighter (fantasy).  For reference, it was applied to the upper portion of my cheeks, on top of my brow bone, down my nose to the bridge and just above my cupid's bow.

 

Other New Items Used

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit (the shade on the bottom left only)- under cheek apples, sides of nose, 3 and E. (Special thanks to Curiouscannibal for this, because I love it so far with five more shades to try).

YSL Touche Eclat Foundation Think it is a bit yellow for me, but I liked the formula

Too Faced Cocoa Powder Foundation Color slightly off, but I liked the way it looked and felt otherwise

Mally Liquid Lipstick  The orangish one from my recent Birchbox (although it looks pinkish on me for some reason).  It also accentuates my dry lips.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Tamanna Palette (no creasing, applies like a dream, pigmented, seriously stop sitting there and put this in your cart).  Inner corner and lower lash line Sangria; lid Bengal; brow bone Blush; Crease Chocolate; upper lid Guilded; lower lash line Noir

Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner I used this once inside the store (the SA was kind enough to open a brand new one for my germaphobic self), and I hated it.  I got one in a recent promo and decided to try it again.  Hated it again.  I could not get a smooth line and wasted so much product.  If there is any left in the tube, I will try again.

Color FX Cream Concealer The color was slightly off, but it covers well.  There is some discoloration on my chin from a recent breakout, and this did a good job hiding most of it.

 

The usual stuff

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

Lancome CILS booster

It Cosmetics eyebrow pencil

Anastasia Beverly Hills clear brow gel

NARS eyeshadow primer

Korres Quercetin and Oak Antiaging Primer

Re: What are you wearing today?

Love this look on you! And the Tarte blush is cream, right? What's your method of application with cream blushes? I also have a Tarte blush but never use it because cream blushes make me nervous!  

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks.  The blush is actually powder.  The highlighter in the kit is cream though.  My application with highlighters is straight from the container to my skin and blending with my fingers (I know it is not the most sanitary way to do it, but I do not share makeup with anyone yet).  When it is a cream product in a typical blush container, I use a brush first, but I still finish blending with my fingers.  I always feel like I have more control with my fingers than the brush.  It is also harder to remove cream products, so I start with a light layer and build as needed.  With powders, I usually start with a full swipe (which has mostly served me well, but I have learned to apply lightly with highly pigmented items or things that are too dark for me without a very light application).

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love this look! It's natural and effortless, yet still very much put together and polished.

Thanks.  I wish it was effortless.  It takes me a long time to look like that.

Re: What are you wearing today?

wow! simply stunning! I just love this look. You've got me seriously thinking about getting the Tamanna palette and the contour kit although I doubt I could recreate even half of this look. Not sure about doing the E part of contouring either--will have to look that up. The blush looks quite nice too. I think that you may want to look at going a bit more pink or berry tinted with your lips (in the future) like how this Mally lippie looks on you because it really accentuates your face coloring quite a bit -- maybe it brings out some of the cool tones in your face.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks.  Yes, I think everyone should get the Tamanna palette.  It was my first time using the contour palette, and I only used one shade, so I am not ready to recommend that one quite yet.  The E (left side of face) really just looks like a backwards 3.  Of course, the 3 goes on the right side of the face.  The top of my 3 and E start at my temple.  The midpoint is the outer corner of the eye.  The bottom ends just below the cheek bone.  Then, I blend like crazy.  It is easy, so you can do it in no time.  I saw Kat Von D do it in a video on this site once, so you can probably find and watch the video if you want to see it in action.

 

Thanks.  The lippie turned out pink, but I swear it is not pink.  It may just be my undertones that make it look that way.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Oh my goodness, your eyessss! Absolutely gorgeous, lady!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks.  It took a really long time to do.

Worth it. And don't let your husband rush you. These things take time and effort!

Re: What are you wearing today?

WOW, notcreative! I think this is one of the most smoldering and downright sexy looks I've seen from you. The Tamanna palette is beautiful! ABH palettes have honestly never been on my radar before, but now that BT has gotten ahold of them and shown me what the shadows are capable of... I have to say I'm interested, especially for their price tags.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you.  Yes, I am amazed at how beautiful the shadows are.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Look at you all smoldering sexy and all!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks you.  Hehe
