What we're Wearing

What We’re Wearing, Vol. 004

Last Sunday, I dug out my brights and created a chartreuse look, and I really liked that. It’s been such a long time since I’ve used such bright colors!

    A favorite look I wore recently was one of the neutral eye looks you have using naked lunch, romp, bronze and grain – except this time I used Lancome’s “kitten heel” shadow instead of naked lunch and I really liked that.

    My fav look ive done recently was a very toned down purple! It was color, but it didnt look crazy and over the top!

    I “stole” one of your look, Christine. I really love both Centre Stage and Dalliance and often wear them together. Last night, I decided to ramp it up by putting some UD Haight (very like Odalisque) in the crease as well and it was lovely. I had Desert Rose on my cheeks, Laugh a Lot on my lips and I even wet the Dalliance to apply under my eyes, as you did in one of your looks – something I’d never done before – and loved it. I’ll be wearing this look a lot, I think.

  4. Sugarpill. Ooodles and oodles of Sugarpill. Dollipop and Goldilux to be specific.

  5. I did a look with lots of yellow and green. I loved it!

  6. I’ve been totally enamored with my Coastal Scents Think Pink palette. It’s really way better than I was expecting and I have been using it almost every day for the last week.

    I did a super simple look yesterday, just a shimmery beige on the lid, with a darker beige in the crease, a shimmery champagne in the inner corner and a satin-finish off-white higlight, but I used liquid liner for the first time! It turned out okay, but I still need to experiment with making wings. I finished it off with some mascara. I used a neutral blush on my cheeks, a cheek highlight and a nude-pink lipstick topped with a pink gloss. Still excited about the liquid liner though :)

    My pink and grey face of yesterday: Glamora Castle eyeshadow on outer lid, no-name light pink on the inside, drugstore grey eyeliner, Amazon Princess blush, Revlon Primrose lipstick with MAC Cultured lipglass over it.

    I used a light hand with it to make sure it didn’t look too juvenile or clownish (I’m 46).

    I used a light hand so I didn’t look clownish or juvenile (I’m 46, anything too drastic looks silly on me now).

  10. My favorite look this week was a daytime smokey eye. I used Rock & Republic (R&R) Diffused (light satiny taupe) on the lid, MAC Brun in the crease and blended up to brow bone, MAC Ricepaper on browbone and inner corner, and R&R Fatalistic (matte black) on the outer V. I used MAC Mighty Aphrodite (the lighter side)on the cheeks and MAC Shy Girl and Revlon Nude Lustre on the lips. When I went to Lush to pick up some stuff, the sales girl asked if I had just gotten my makeup done. That made my day!

    recently I go for a very classic look: just tinted moisturizer, no powder, defined brows. burle(mac) or even nothing on the lid and just a hint of crease with a very light matte taupe by inglot (the number rubbed of the jar), a very thin, slightly winged black eyeliner and lenthenig mascara (l’extreme by lancome).
    light conturing and a hint of well dressed blush or springsheen.
    on the lips just carmex or a red lipstick dabbed on with a finger on the middle of my lips.

    What I’m wearing today! Its a version of the promo for Viva Glam Gaga 2!

    face: MAC Prolong Wear foundation, MUFE HD powder, plum Clinique blush for contour (i think it’s Plum Gorgeous).

    Upper Lid: Painterly paintpot, UD Sin on the lid, UD Naked in the crease, UD Virgin and MAC Vapour for highlight on brow and inner lid/tear duct, Blacktrack fl, L’Oreal Million Lashes (top only)
    Lower Lid: UD Whiskey, UD Buck, a matte MAC brown i cant remember the name of

    lips: MAC Plink!

  13. I did a look with neutrals on the lid and a pop of bright teal along the lower lash line. It came together really well!

  14. Karen

    For Valentine’s Day I used Dalliance all over my lids with Fyrinnae Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat (a mauve pink) in the crease and blended out. I used a bright pink cream blush on my cheeks, Covergirl lip stain in Coy Coral and Wonder Woman lipgloss.

  15. P

    I did a blue smoky eyes look with the Navy Designer Dior Quint with MAC Prussian Powerpoint eyeliner on the lower lash line and half upper lash line, black mascara, MAC Blushbaby blush and MAC Twig lipstick

  16. My look for Valentine’s Day, all Urban Decay : Uzi + Minx + Smog.
    (Actually you can see it in my blog in the English version page).

  17. Teddy

    Going to a birthday party, did a neutral smokey eye. Grain all over the lid. wedge as a diffused crease with embarked more defined in the crease and along the lower lash line. Blacktrack fluidline on the tightline and carbon on the upper lash line. pencil liner never seems to stay put on my upper lash line, where as liquid/gel liner is a little too harsh for a smokey eye!

  18. Cindy

    I made this pretty look using a revlon metalic grey cream shadow as a base and electra over top with sautin taupe in the crease-gorgeous!!!!

  19. Ana G.

    I’ve been wearing Dalliance a lot lately; I’m so in love with it. I wear Dalliance all over the lid and under my eyes,UD Zero on the waterline and a little out as well, Sur blush and Lust lipglass.

    I love the look I’m wearing right now! A bare face with lightly contoured cheeks (NARS Laguna bronzer) and Cle de Peau extra rich lipstick in R2 on my lips, which I finally purchased after reading your review! Words can not describe how much I adore it. When it finally came in the mail today I braced myself for dissapointment-there was no way it could look as amazing on me as it did on you. But I think it does! It really does plump the lips beautifully, and the colour is just so so so rich and decadent. It stands for itself; a swipe of this and I look like a million bucks. The price is steep but I think it is so completely worth it. I would pay twice the price; this lipstick has made me fall in love with make up again, no joke. $60 well spent!

    Sharp, smoky eyes with NARS Nouveau Monde duo and lined with Black Moon liner pencil….simple natural cheeks and lips, with NARS Douceur blush and Hourglass lipgloss in Opium. Really nice look for an evening out. :)

  22. Kris Cameron

    My new favorite quick look is urban decay 24/7 shadow pencil in midnight cowboy in inner third of eye, urban decay 24/7 shadow pencil in lit in outter two thirds of eye, urban decay 24/7 pencil in zero on upper and lower water line…then revlon growluscious on lashes. mac mighty aphrodite on cheeks and mac kissable lipcolor in temper tantra.

  23. CeeBee

    Purple, peach and nude!
    I used my new Shiseido eye trio in violet tones (VI308), plus one of L’Oreals Infallible Color e/s in Flashback Silver (it has lilac tones), charcoal liquid liner and two coats of black mascara.
    A hint of sheer, peachy coral blush (Anna Sui 303) with a deep gold luminizing cream patted over, then dusted with translucent powder (which makes the shimmer really subtle and glowy) and then I filled my lips in with Natio Lotus liner (the most perfect nude EVER!) and topped with Estee Lauder Pure Color Crustal lipstick in Crystal Rose. Which is way more beige than rose, but still looks completely awesome!

  24. I copied Mila Kunis’s look she wore for Glamour Magazine — I’m loving her thick liner.

  25. heidi

    I went super bright with nyx and mac. Nyx JEP in milk on lid, nyx white(matte white) from lid to brow. Nyx light green(more of a crazy lime green color) on outer third. Cut crease with UD graffiti(shimmer green) blended out with mac Swimming and Humid. Outer third lower lashline super close with humid and nyx light green on inner half with milani lily white(super shimmery ivory) in the inner corner. UD 24/7 liner in zero in waterline and super close to upper lashline. Very thin. Maybeline dream mousse blush in peach satin, nyc sunny bronzer and rimmel airy fairy lipstick.

  26. Rosie

    I wish I could upload a picture to show it cause I was very impressed with my makeup tonight. I used French Quarter Greasepaint stick as my base then put Sumptous Olive on my lid with Humid, Loaded, Perversion and the green part of She Who Dares (wet) in my crease with Retrospeck over the crease and a tidbit of Nylon in the highlight area and Nylon and Retrospeck in the inner tear duck then Perversion as my top liner and waterline and tightline with Covet, Mildew and Stash as my lower lash line. Then I used Deep Throat as my blush and NYX Sponge Cake Mega Shine lipgloss. I used Covergirl Lashblast Fusion and used tape to make the eyes super defined. I loved the look :).

  27. I’m all about a shimmery neutral eye and bright pink or orange lips.

  28. Favorite look of the week was inspired by TiffanyD and her light-colored UD Naked look. Since I don’t own UD Naked I used MAC Shroom on the lid, in the inner corner and as a highlight. MAC Kid in the crease, MAC Cork to deepen the crease and a mix of MAC Tempting and Brun on the outer corner. Lined with MAC Almost Noir pearlglide liner. I love it! It has quickly become my favorite daytime look.

  29. Stephanie!

    I actually wore my favorite look last night: it was a mokey eye with smut all over the lids and blended upwards. Shroom in the tearduct area and brulee onder the browbone. I finished the look with a brown pencil on the waterline and two coats of mascara.

  30. I took Kryolan Satin Powder in SP662 and applied it on the lid and base, rubbed it at the outer corner of the lid and lower crease. I then darkened it a bit more with Vincent Longo’s Green from the Paradise Love Trio. I used Urban Decay Electric along the lower lash line and then highlighted with Venomous Pegasus. It was a green green look :)
