Yesterday, I wanted to see how my new cut would look natural aka no styling required. I was pretty pleased with the results — it’s very much the same, but it doesn’t have the same level of volume, shine, or texture. But it still works, and it doesn’t HAVE to be styled, which is what is important. I mean, as much as I hope to learn more about hair styling, it’s not my forte, so knowing I don’t have to stress out to learn quickly is such a relief! Wild ‘Bout You has always been one of my favorite lipsticks, and it’s great that this fall calls for just such a color :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Grain eyeshadow (soft neutral), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Petalpoint blush (soft purple-pink)
  • Lips: Wild ‘Bout You lipstick (deep berry), Jampacked lipglass (dark berry wine)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Petalpoint = Breath of Plum; Wild ‘Bout You = New York Apple; Jampacked = Desire

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Grain eyeshadow on the lid portion of the eye using the 239. Apply Plushlash mascara to lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Petalpoint blush using the 129. Apply Wild ‘Bout You lipstick to lips, and then top with Jampacked lipglass for color and shine.

    I have always visited your site and had admired the different makeup looks you have done, you have looked beautiful in all of them.. but I must say that your new hairstyle has kicked it up a notch! It added definitely added glamour to your completed look!

  23. pquanda

    I agree.. great balance with eyes and lips!

  24. CG

    Wow, so simple yet so beautiful. As a newbie, I’ve been practicing how to put on e/s. When I try to use 2-3 colors, it turns muddy. It’s a relief to be reminded that one shadow at times would do. Love the hair :-)
