What makeup is everyone wearing today?

 

Today I am wearing:

2. Benefit Coralista blush

3. TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer

4. Dior Creme de Rose Lipbalm

and under all this I am wearing Neutrogena Pure and Free Liquid Sunblock SPF 50

 

So c'mon now...confess!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Beautiful, DivWa! What I really like is how naturally pretty this looks, but when you close your eyes, it's a smoky eye! I can still see the dark shadow when your eyes are open, but you somehow make it look so fresh and bright.  Just got back from school, so I'm not making any sense Smiley Wink

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you Cupcakecandy. Actually your comment makes perfect sense to me. My eyes probably look a little bit more smoky in person but I do think it can be pulled off as maybe not being so smoky if the other makeup isn't so intense. (For some reason I think that sometimes darker hair/skin can pull off smoky as being fresh and more subtle too, although some people on BT have proven me wrong.) Did you end up getting the Smashbox cherry smoke palette? I recall that you were sorely tempted but never heard if you ended up taking the plunge.

Re: What are you wearing today?

No, unfortunately. I have extremely dark caves under my eyes that can only be lightened not covered, so an overall smoky palette + them circles =

Sigh, I really need more sleep.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I have dark circles too! I have to avoid certain purples because they seem to accentuate the dark circles and veins in my eyelids. Go get yourself some sleep!

Re: What are you wearing today?

I keep forgetting to do a before, too! I love this look, love how you lined your eyes!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Sunday night play time! The only problem with Sunday night play time is the running around the house turning on different lights trying to capture the look, as evidenced by my pictures. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I found a couple of Almay shadow palettes that had been CVS impulse buys while I was organizing things and decided I should actual give one a spin. I was very pleasantly surprised with the application and pigmentation. I have no idea how it wears though because I'm about to wash it all off. Also tried gel liner for the first time today. Not as scary as I thought it would be. Totally forgot to put on mascara. My lips were still stained pink from yesterday so I tried to tone them down a bit with MAC's Siren Song. 

 

And bonus picture of yesterday's look. 

 

Re: What are you wearing today?

I like it all, your shadow application reminded me of a quote all business in the front, party in the back. And the reason is that in one of your pictures it looks like a smokey application, but in the 2nd picture where you kind of see it from underneath, it looks like a neat office wearing makeup - i fthat makes any sense, lol. I like it, i never tried almay cause someone said the pigmentation wasn't that great but it looks nice here.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Hahahaha it's my mullet look Smiley Wink

 

I wasn't really expecting much of anything from the palette so I was really surprised when it went on so pigmented. I might have even put too much on my brush when I started because I thought I was really going to have to pack it on. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

You did a fantastic job on your eyes! I think I'm going to steal that look for my interview with Sephora Smiley Happy Which gel liner did you use?

Re: What are you wearing today?

Yay! Steal away! I used the Julep black gel liner because it's the only one that I own. This was my first time using it and I have nothing to compare it to, but I was happy enough with how it applied. Can't speak to how it wears yet though. 

 

Good of luck at your interview! I'm sure you'll knock it out of the park!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Your gel liner looks great!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks! I was surprised by how well it worked out. But you know when I actually have somewhere to be, it won't be quite so kind to me. Smiley Wink

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love seeing you all done up.  You did a great job playing.  Your lippie color from yesterday looks great on you.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks! That lip color started off very vampy, faded to bright pink, and then stained my lips through the whole next day. But I'm not complaining. I kind of loved the evolution.

Re: What are you wearing today?

It hardly looks like a vampy color on you. It is quite perfect.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Yeah, that picture was taken after it had faded down to the pink quite a bit. And thank you! I enjoyed wearing it in all of its iterations. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Ok that's it! I am buying a rose gold blush because it looks fantastic on you! Hope you had fun playing Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

I used Milani Iluminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar for my blush. I picked it up about a month ago when they were doing buy one get one 50% off at CVS and I am loving it. I think it would look amazing on you. 

 

Play time is the best time. Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

You are absolutely gorgeous! Wow Smiley Wink (Also, Thanks again for thinking of me and helping me out before. It was a really bad time. Fellow BTer's she is an awesome person-in case anybody out there didn't know already Smiley Wink )

Re: What are you wearing today?

Hush, you. You're making me blush. And ruining my bad girl image (of which I have none :-p).

 

I hope life is treating you more kindly these days. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thank you I will have to go grab it

Re: What are you wearing today?

Can't wait to see it on you!

Re: What are you wearing today?

going to try to post a better quality of this later. i'm feelin' it !

 

GA luminous silk foundation #2

NARS radiant creamy concealer chantilly

NARS blush luster

CG eyebrow pencil, midnight black

NYX eye shimmer nude

NYX eye shimmer walnut

GIVENCHY noir couture mascara

MAC lipstick smoked purple (matte)

 

 

edit to add this pic. it's not a better quality (i never got a chance / then couldn't be bothered before washing my face !) but it's an outtake that i think shows the colors / textures a *bit* better. i love this lipstick so much but it IS a disaster if you try to eat with it on. learnt that tonight Smiley Sad a lipliner would help.

 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Yes, ma'am. 

Re: What are you wearing today?
