Re: What are you wearing today?

Wow! This picture took my breath away! It is one of the best examples I've ever seen of the no makeup 'look'. Of course it doesn't hurt that you are stunningly beautiful, but I'm envious of your ability to subtly emphasize and enhance your gorgeous features in a manner that looks groomed but not obvious. What you've done with your eyes is simply brilliant, because although the tones are neutral, they work in concert with the bold liner to make your eyes truly pop! And those brows are to die for! Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks!   The eye shadow is actually a lot more visible in person but it's still not a crazy bright color so it's passable as 'natural'.  Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

I think this might be the first time I've ever seen your face, itscarin!  I agree with hearts, your brows are seriously lust worthy.

Re: What are you wearing today?

Dem brows.   So thick and lovely!!!  Your foundation doesn't look the wrong colour...  Perhaps you've become paler over the winter?   

This makeup is so classic and natural looking.   How do you like the Bobbi brown blush?  I haven't tried any Bobbi brown anything before.

Re: What are you wearing today?

I like the blush.  I'm not really crazy about blush the way I am for eye shadows, so I don't have a lot of things to compare it to.  I have a few MAC powder blushes and one of their cream blushes, a Chanel blush, a few UD cream blushes and 2 of their powder blushes, and of course, Nars Orgasm blush, which I never use.  Oh, I forgot, also an orange blush from MUFE, and then a couple of the new MUFE shadows which can also be used as blush.  Out of all of those things, I think they all wear and perform about the same.  At least my eye isn't discerning enough to pick up a difference.  I have a Bobbi Brown travel palette and the colors are all very neutral.  Bobbi Brown is all about the natural look, so it's good in that sense, but it's just not very exciting to me.  I bought the blush because I did a 90 minute consult at Sephora, and I was talking to the MUA about how all my blushes were bright colors, so we went in a different direction and picked out something more subtle than what I usually go for. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

I don't think I need any subtle blushes, in any way.  I played it safe colour wise in the beginning and am pretty set as far as sheer natural blushes go.   I've been working on collecting some more intense colours these days to round out my collection.  

I honestly don't really notice a difference in the way different blushes apply cause by the time I'm applying it I have multiple powders on already and they blend smoothly over those anyway.  

Poor Bobbi brown is not winning my heart today. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

So, to Bobbi Brown's credit, I do like the way their matte shadows blend out.  They're very smooth.  I think my favorite shadows are the MUFE shadows, which are in a league of their own, and then there's like a second tier of eye shadows that blend well, but they're just not MUFE shadows, and I'd put the Bobbi Brown shadows in that second tier, along with the Stila In the Know palette, and the updated UD shadows.  They're better than the Smashbox and MAC eyeshadows. 

Re: What are you wearing today?

I love the little wing you have poking out!

Re: What are you wearing today?

Another red lip to steal the show, and isn't this a drop-dead-gorgeous one?!? It brightens your whole face, and compliments the neutral eyes you're rocking! I'm loving that unexpected swipe of mascara, too, as am so unaccustomed to seeing you wear any; it really makes your eyes pop! Your complexion is flawless, your brows groomed to perfection, your cheeks subtly yet effectively enhanced! You look beautiful! Smiley Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

Is it weird that I thought your lips look super bouncy? lol 

Re: What are you wearing today?

Yep, what she said! 

Re: What are you wearing today?

LOL i dont know why this made me laugh so hard....but you are right....they look full and bouncy 

Re: What are you wearing today?

LOL, thanks ladies!  I had foresight this morning and actually balmed my lips before I applied my lipstick today.

 

I guess that makes them bouncy Smiley Very Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

That lip color is so pretty on you! Smiley Wink

 

I just bought the mico beauty blenders too! They are fun to use but I'm still deciding if they are a necessary addition to my regular beauty blender sponge! 

<3, Randee

Re: What are you wearing today?

Thanks Randee!  

 

I hadn't ever tried a beauty blender before, so I'm not really sure how it compares to the normal size ones, but yeah, I agree, they are fun, but not sure it's necessary.  

 

Part of me is worried my cat is going to jump onto my vanity and eat it Smiley Very Happy

Re: What are you wearing today?

My cats already stole those I bought for my daughter's! They haven't eaten them, but they enjoy bouncing around pretending the beauty blenders are in fact mice! Smiley Wink

Re: What are you wearing today?

i love the finish of the lip. looks semi matte, but not dry ? (i suppose we call that satin, haha)

 

are you having trouble with the concealer that made you try a new technique ?

Re: What are you wearing today?

Jem, I am LOVING the finish of this lipstick.  It is a tough one to pinpoint, I'm not even sure I would deem it a satin?  Maybe a demi-satin? Smiley Very Happy  Anyways, it's glorious.  

 

I really like the texture of the concealer, but I don't feel like I get quite the amount of coverage I want out of it for my dark undereyes if I apply it with my fingers.  I thought I would give the BB a try because I have never used one (at all) and well... they're MINI!  My next step would be to try applying it with a brush.  I enjoyed the feel of applying it with the BB (so bouncy) but I don't notice any difference.  

Re: What are you wearing today?

my coverage isn't what i need either (these bags are darrrrk lately) but it's because i need to repurchase. i'm literally scraping out remaining product...just trying to make it to the end of the week before any such purchases happen. but every time i run out of concealer, and i get a new one and apply it for the first time, i think "ohhhh yeahhhh this is how it's supposed to be...."
