Mix Match Mash

Feb 9, 2011

So I definitely purchased the wrong color in my Chanel foundation but I found that if I mix it with my Make Up Forever Foundation (175) that it is a perfect match.  Also, the Chanel Mat Lumiere dries down really quickly which makes it hard to blend at times but when I mix the two foundations, I am able to take more time to blend and it looks really great!  Cheers.  I also have been trying my favorite red lip combo and it is currently Brick Lip Liner and Ruby Woo lipstick, both by MAC.  I'm wearing the foundation mix and the lipcolor mix in the picture.

January 2011 Favorites - Makeup

Feb 7, 2011

My favorite things!  Yeah!  I've been reaching for these products almost every day in January and I thought I would share them with you.  I think all of these products are must have items and I love them dearly...well at least I did last month!

First up is my uber fave Nars Taj Mahal blush.  It is without a doubt one of the most gorgeous blushes that I own and it just gives me that glow when I need it.  This blush is perfect for every day looks and my hand seems to be on auto-pilot because I reach for it so often.

Next up is a product that was introduced to me by one of the ladies at the Estee Lauder counter.  When she put this product on me in store, I was sold!  I wanted this in my hand asap.  It lightened my under eye area slightly but it was just enough to bring brightness without looking ashy or too light.  The product is Estee Lauder's Ideal Light Brush-on Illuminator.

So now on to the eyes.  I hauled a few items from the MAC Peacocky collection and this eye shadow was the stand-out for me.  I just love the color and I use it on my crease, on the lid and as a blending color and it looks great all three ways.  The color I'm raving about is Paparazz-She.  The texture is amazing and the color is vibrant and easy to blend.

Last but not least is my lip color choice of the month which hands down is Nars' Strawberry Fields Lipgloss.  This is the most amazing color, an awesome texture and great for that sexy vamp look without looking too severe.  I love love love this!
