The Best of the Best, Volume #004

The Best of the Best, Volume #003

I hope your week has been better than mine! The week itself has been just fine for the most part… except that I’ve been sick since last Friday with a cold/flu. All I know is I’ve decided that the worst part during the day is feeling achy, and the worst part during the night is coughing up a lung while trying to sleep! I’m crossing my fingers I’m better by Monday! :)

What are your weekend plans?

For my weekend, I’ll be heading to Nordstrom’s Trend Show on Saturday morning and then trying to relax a bit on Sunday and get some homework done.

NYFW S/S ’10: Shiseido @ Narciso Rodriguez

Shiseido @ Narciso Rodriguez

NYFW S/S '10 Narciso Rodriguez

The Look

“Cool Sheik”, “Reverse Makeup”, “Dirty and Smudged”

Get the Look

  • Skin: The models skin was left as pure as possible, using very light foundation where needed.
  • Eyes: Dick first applied a makeup remover around the eyes with a fluffy brush to give a wet base and slightly glossy effect around the eyes. He then blended two shades of the Luminizing Satin Eye Colors from the Fall 2009 Collection, Squirrel (BR303) and Cavern (BR708). He applied the combination of shadows around the eyes (on top and bottom), right into the lashlines. He then used this color on the lids to create “dirty looking eyes.” No mascara or liner is used.
  • Lips: To create a matte lip, Dick blended two shades from the new Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte line from the Spring 2010 collection. Whisper (RD722) and Wink (BR323) were combined to create a flat mauve color, ultimately yielding “smudgy lips”.

Next, the Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Fuschia (RS320) from the Spring 2009 Line was applied, followed by a high pigment bright pink powder. The lips were completed with a dusting of the Translucent Loose Powder from the Fall 2009 Collection.
  • Eyes/Brows: Eyes were left completely natural. Dick then used the Natural Eyebrow Pencil from the Fall 2009 Collection if needed.

I want to give you what you want!  If the majority of readers would like to see fashion deals regularly, occasionally, or from time to time, I just need you lovelies to tell me! :)  If you have any caveats or concerns, please let me know in the comments section!

To clarify:  fashion promotions/sales/deals would be in addition to the beauty deals, and they would only appear on this page, better known as The Deals Page.  It wouldn’t clutter up the main blog (just as beauty deals no longer do). :)
