I did this look ridiculously fast — like 5 minutes for the entire face (and to take photos!), and that included originally attempting to use Green Space pigment, hating it, and removing the eye makeup and re-doing it. (We were running late for a lunch with my Mom & sister.)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on the inner lid, Patina eyeshadow on middle of lid, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease and lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Graphblack techakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Margin blush on cheeks. I had By Degrees slimshine (LE) on lips with Prestigious lipglass (LE) on my lips.

By Degrees = Captive; Prestigious = Venetian

    beautiful lip combo, what collection was Prestigious in?
    another question: do I need Patina if I have Warming Trend?

    Thanks for a great look!

    • Thanks, Nell! I believe it was Couture 2006!

      You can skip Patina, probably – I have both, but I’m obsessed with that kind of color.

    You look amazing – I wish I could look like that in 5 mins flat! I’m so slow when it comes to make up – it takes me like an hour and a half and I’m still not a patch on you! I need to get speedy!
