Re: What are you wearing today?

Naked Basics looks fabulous on you! And I love the lip color as well. You look so classic (and classy!). I know it's just neutrals, but I love that little palette.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I wasn't sure about it since the colors are pretty basic, and I have a lot of similar colors, but the application is sooooo nice.  Glad I decided to pick one up Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Rose Dressing is basically your perfect lip color. I love it!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you! I really want to buy a fuchsia lippie, but I'm scared of them! I've had UD Revolution in Jilted in my cart for the past week, but I keep taking it out and putting it back in again.

Re: What are you wearing today?

UD Jilted probably looks a bit more blue-red than your average Fuchsia. If you decide to buy it, it will be even darker than most fuchsia pop lipsticks! One of my favorite fuchsia lipsticks/shocking pink lipsticks, in my opinion, is Nars Schiap. Other great ones: UD Revolution in Anarchy; MUFE Rouge Artist Intense in 36; YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Le Fuchsia (7) or Fuchsia (19). Be brave! Give one a try! Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

I do like blue-toned colors on me, they seem to be more forgiving than anything else. All of my deep red shades are all blue-red. I was also looking at the MUFE Rouge Artist, but wasn't sure about the formulation. I've never used anything from them other than the HD Finishing Powder. I do like YSL lippies though! I think I'm gonna...I think I'm gonna...I think I'm gonna go buy one right now! Enable me! Yay! *Drank too much coffee too late at night*

Re: What are you wearing today?

RE: MUFE Rouge Artist Intense, it actually surprised and impressed me. I bought it long ago just for the color and I reach for it pretty often when I want a pop of fuchsia. I've got a pic of it attached here from... idk last week? (Forgive me, I look slightly yellowish here because I was testing the new Becca foundation with a yellow base. Ended up looking like a pretty good match... just slightly yellow. Didn't like the foundation though!) Where I'm wearing it. It lasts for quite a long time on me, about 5 to 6 hours. I don't think it's drying, and it glides on nicely.

 

As for enabling YOU CAN DO IT! Beautiful Fuchsia! I know you can rock it. Your face is a blank canvas; just build it around your amazing pink lips when you wear it!

 

Pink lips are my favorite, seriously.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Oooh, I REALLY like this look on you! It's so bright and fun! 

Re: What are you wearing today?

That looks great on you! I'm so jealous of your versatile skin tone. My biggest issue with bright colors is that I have such fair skin that sometimes it reflects off of it, making me look like I'm glowing, and not in a fun, dewy way, but more like police lights kind of way. I'll show you with this red that I had on earlier. It's the Stila Color Bomb pencil that I can't recall the proper name for, but it's in the shade Bigger Berry. And you can see it reflecting a bit, and making me look kind of...old around my mouth almost? And I worry about the same thing with a fuchsia.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love, love, love this look! What highlighter/luminizer are you wearing?

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you! And it's the Facial Enhancer in Rose Sparkle from yourMinerals. I got it in my March Wantable box, and it's seriously my new favorite thing ever! It goes on really, really light, but you can build it up. You can use it for a light, all over shimmer or precision application for down your nose, on your cheeks and so on. I can't wait for tank top weather, so I can add a touch to my shoulders, I think it'll be lovely!

Re: What are you wearing today?

You see, I look at that and think you look like a total bombshell with that lip color! Smiley Wink BUT I can see what you mean with that particular red and why you would be unhappy with it. Very strange! I am a very pale person too but I seem to be able to make a wide range of foundation shades 'work' for me so who knows.

 

For your purposes, though, I would suggest you stay away from UD Jilted and maybe do a step or two lighter/brighter. Maybe trying UD Anarchy or even UD Obsessed if you want to try a more baby pink color would be better to try. OR Nars Schiap (seriously I love it), MUFE Rouge Artist Intense 36 (which I think is the least expensive of these) or YSL in Le Fuchsia. And if you don't like it, then you can always return!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Smiley Very Happy Aw, I was so unhappy with it today, but now I'm feeling better! Yeah, I've found one foundation ever that worked for me and gave me the coverage and look I wanted! My skin tone is so picky. Sometimes I like it, and other times I'm just cranky and boooo about how it is to find products to match. 

 

I think I'm going to try the MUFE 36, just because it seems like the bright, Barbie pink I want to grab, and your suggestions are encouraging! I wouldn't mind grabbing a baby pink color sometime though, as I might be able to handle that more easily, and then transition up to the fuchsia when I'm comfortable with it. You haven't tried the Hourglass Opague Liquid Lipstick have you? Because I keep eyeballing swatches of Ballet, but can't find it on anyone with a similar skin tone to mine. 

 

And thank goodness for the Sephora return policy. I nearly always order online, just because the one near me that I do like has zero parking and it's hard to get there as it's a little bit of a drive for me. Which is why I'm all about swatches and getting opinions online. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

I haven't tried the Hourglass Opaque Liquid Lipstick yet, unfortunately. I have one of their nude lip stylos, but that's all I have as far as lip products go! Ballet looks like a beautiful pink color, though, and right up my alley. I think it could work on you, judging by the swatches! But it'll depend on whether you like the formula or not. Good luck!!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I agree! Your scarf looks great! And your skin is so flawless *green with envy*

Re: What are you wearing today?

The scarf look is so cute, and I still LOVE Rose Dressing on you!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you! I was worried it would look silly, so I'm glad you approve!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I almost never wear my bangs back because of my large forehead, which my little brother has so graciously dubbed a "five head." But it was snowing this morning and I was lazy soooo... alas

Re: What are you wearing today?

My forehead is a similar size to yours and I haven't had bangs since I was 8. I decided to embrace it, as should you! This is a fabulously polished, perfectly groomed look! I'm loving your intricate shading of the eyeshadow, darkening toward the wing, your glowing, subtly sculpted cheeks, and that beautiful sophisticated pink lip! You look gorgeous! Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Slowly but surely I am getting to the point of embracing!

 

Thanks ballerina Smiley Very Happy
