It’s too bad the pictures didn’t do this justice, because it DID come out really nice in person. Just really subtle and softly smoky.  I wanted something super quick and simple, but I wanted something that was noticeable.

I used Ricepaper eyeshadow all over lid, Espresso eyeshadow in outer crease and corner of lid, and Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease. I wore Margin blush on cheeks with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour. I had Gentle Coral tinted lip conditioner on my lips.

    i love these natural colours! playing with browns, highlighters – i have those e/s because of your smokey brown look from way back.

    thanks christine. another it once again!

    • Thanks! Ricepaper is one of my favorite lid colors just to “wake up” the eyes a touch, and I thought I’d try some Espresso in it (which I use in my brows). It turned into a pretty shade of gray-brown.

    How pretty! I always use Shroom and Charcoal Brown and Patina for this look, but I gotta get into more looks with Ricepaper. It looks a lot more yellow on me, I think.

    Pretty!…I’m going to try Ricepaper with Charcoal Brown. I did a simple look today too…Charcoal Brown, Tempting, and Gingersoft. I’ll send pics if I remember :) Maybe it’s a browns day!

    You look beautiful as always. I still can’t get over how perfect you always look. Not fair.

    I’m just curious… what are your thoughts on the N collection? Also, could you post an updated collections post? Your last one was from Sept 2007. Just curious… hopefully not being annoying.

    Keep being beautiful!

    • Thanks, Anna! Awww, I hardly think that’s me, but I appreciate the compliment :)

      I did like the N Collection, just because I felt like it was a surprisingly nice line of nudes that were both unique and easy to use.

      I’ll try to get an update going sometime, maybe early March when I’m on spring break!

  6. Gorgeous as always! I love how simple this looks, but you are naturally pretty anyway! :)

    I did this look yesterday only I wanted less shading, so I used Patina with Ricepaper and then I winged some black liner out. I was stunning, if I do say so myself. ;)
