I love trying and playing with new products–especially ones I just purchased–but it’s really annoying when it’ll take you days to try them all out. Case in point: between Red She Said & Sheer Minerals, I ended up with eight different cheek products! I only have two cheeks! Plus, let’s face it, I can’t exactly walk around in public with two totally different colors. So what’s a beauty addict to do? Try one, layer it, then remove it all… and do it again!

I did four cheek combinations yesterday, and here’s the first one. I’ll post the rest throughout today and tomorrow! :) This one is just Enough Said alone… LOVE IT!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad, Blacktrack fluidline (black), Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner (gold), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft gold-peach)
  • Lips: Strawberry Blonde lipstick (pink-coral), Sugar Trance (sheer white-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Enough Said = Gingerly; Strawberry Blonde = Skew; Sugar Trance = Prrr

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the inner half of the lid, apply the lightest color from the Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad with the 239. Apply the next lightest color on the outer half of the lid with the 239 brush. Darken the crease with medium colored brown and drag using the 239. Sweep the lightest color underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner on lower lash line and Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Enough Said using the 129. Apply Strawberry Blonde lipstick to lips, and then top with Sugar Trance lipglass for color and shine.

    OH!! see Christine, I’m going back to MAC and getting this one now…lol
    It look absoloutley gorgeous!!!

    I like how it gives a nice glow without noticeable bronzer or too dark color… I got stark naked and baby sparks, but im thinking about returning the outspoken trio and getting this instead! I dont know why i let the MA talk me into the eyeshadows…i knew i hated them last time!! I just need to learn to say “NO” to MAs even if something looks pretty, lol!

    • Thanks, Kirsten! It’s a really pretty blush, especially for warmer medium-toned skin, IMO (because you get a touch of color + the shimmer).

      LOL, I need to learn to say no, too :P

    BTW i will add that they have more pigmentation if i apply them wet…but then its just too annoying to go over it again with a fluffy brush to cover the weird wet texture.

    I love love love this look!

    Blacktrack eyeliner is my favorite!! :)
    I want to get a gold eyeliner too! Ahhh!!

    Question, how do you apply from paint pots? I was told by the SA that I should use Bare Study as a base. And currently I use a nylon brush from Sonia Kashuk’s brush set to apply it but I feel like it’s not right.

    This looks like a bronzer to me, it’s very pretty. You look great. I definitely don’t need anymore bronzers, but I’ll have to see this in person.. I may need it ;)

    you look amazing! i don’t really have any cheek products but i think i’m reconsidering getting some. and i love the eyeliner. i just got the UD honey along with covet and lucky and they are fabulous!

    You rock this fresh-faced look, maybe MAC shoulda have hired you to do the Creamsheen ad for them! Another winning point in my notes: BEAUtiful golden eyeliner with black eyeliner – simple yet sexy with creamy lips. XD

  14. You look amazing1 I love the lip colors and how you did your eyes. So natural and yet dramatic. Am I making any sense? Ha ha… thanks for sharing.
