    Probably the eye I did today with my Urban Decay sale haul: Chronic matte all over the lid with Green Goddess in the center and Baked in the corner, Mildew eyeliner on upper lid and lower lashline, and MAC Ivy on the inner corners. My mother even liked it, which is really saying something.

    I’ve been wearing Benefit’s Birthday Suit Creaseless Cream eyeshadow a lot this week – it’s just so easy and looks so pretty. Too Faced Sexpresso in the crease and smudged as liner on my upper lid and just for the heck of it, a green liner from Rimmel (I can never remember the name but I’m pretty sure it has “emerald” in the name). I’ve been using Her Blooming Cheek blush a lot this week as well. Lips – Laugh a Lot (I don’t know what I’ll do when I finish the 2 tubes I have left!).

  22. Mel

    Between impossibly early class times and sweltering temps, I haven’t really done anything. Although I did go by the MAC counter to checkout MAC me over I bought the Prince Noir lipstick and ended up wearing it all day because I liked how it looked when I tried it on even though it did not go with my super laid back outfit of Jeans and a NY Jets tee.

  23. Nicole

    I love this look that I did today:
    EYES:Nothing on the lids except UDPP primer potion, then Quarry and Era in the crease, with Phloof! in the inner corner, and Patina on the lower lashline. A little bit of Chanel’s eyeliner in Demoniac on the outer corner of my upper lashline and then Chanel’s Inimitable Intense Mascara to finish it off!
    FACE: Chanel Vitalumiére Aqua in B10 with NARS bronzer in Irresistiblement to contour and NARS blush in Gina on the apples of my cheeks, with Smashbox’s Fusion Soft Lights in Baked Stardust as a highlight.
    LIPS: A mix of MAC’s lipsticks in Créme d’Nude and Freckletone.

    Ramadan look: hashmi kajal kohl and or guerlain terracotta eye kohl, both in black. The hashmi due to wax content can make quite a heavy upper and lower line if heated with a lighter. Set with 3 custom colors translucent powder. MAC Sheer mystery powder. Salma Hayes Nuance Rose petals balm on lips. This would’ve been ideal if I had a decent undereye Concealer. I have yet to find one, alas.

    Tried several looks but they were very disappointing.At some point it felt like a battle against eyeshadows. Yesterday night I gave it a last try, it turned out to be a lovely look:

    -created a flawless foundation (i.e. everything from primer to highlighters and contouring shades)
    -just a bit of Diorshow Blackout mascara.
    -combed eyebrows.
    -finished with Dior Addict lipstick in Perfecto, applied with a brush over MAC p+p

    It’s what they say: less is more…
