    My favorite make up look this week is actually what I just put on!

    Too Faced Shadow Insurance– always.
    MUFE 92 in the and blended onto most of the outer lid.
    Creep from Urban Decay deepening the crease.
    Black liner, Lorac Front of the Line Pro & UD Zero on waterline, smudged into both lashlines.
    and then.. I was a little skeptical but it ended up looking super pretty..

    I foiled Pink Bronze pigment by MAC onto the inner third-half of my lid! it’s pretty gorgeous.

    finished with maybelline falsies mascara and clinique’s bottom lash mascara. 😀

  2. Eyes: Neutral shades from the Wet n Wild Comfort Zone palette, Laura Mercier Extreme Black pencil (upper lashline), Lakme Kajal pencil (lower lashline). Cheeks: Revlon Mineral Blush in Honey. Lips: NYX Syclia mixed with Revlon Spicy Cinnamon.

    NARS Galapagos on the lid, NARS Thunderbolt on the crease, Urban Decay Naked to highlight. Stila Grapefruit on the lips.

    We were away for 5 days last week and I did an “experiment” – wanted to see if I could manage with just TheBalm’s Balmbini palette and a brown shadow (Mac’s Mulch) and liner, of course, and even a mascara. That powerhouse palette had everything I needed (except foundation and a pencil liner and a brown shadow) for all 5 days. I probably could have managed for 10 days with what I had and it made for quick and easy packing. Next time, I might toss in Too Faced’s Natural eye kit just to have a nice selection of browns and a matte beigey/white shadow as well.

  5. Gillian (AKA Munchy)

    For the eyes I have made a plummy smokey eye with Creme de Violet on the lid, a combo of soft brown and fig 1 in the crease, add a bit of depth with my dark magic in the outer corner, then shroom as a highlight. Line the lids with purple dash and top it off with opulash mascara. For the cheeks I used the Magically cool liquid powder in truth and light, then dusted Benefit’s coralista on top. For lips I just used lollypop loving then topped it all off with flurry of fun lipglass.

  8. I decided to do a Fall foliage-inspired look and used:

    Mac Sun Blonde over the inner 2/3 of the lid
    Mac Paparazz-she on the outer 1/3 of the lid and blended into the crease
    Mac Smoked Ruby in the outer V

    Plus I used On the Hunt liquid liner and mascara. Combined it with Stereo Rose on the cheeks and Bobbi Brown’s “Black Maple” lipstick.

    Those shadows are a dream to work with. They blend so smoothly and seamlessly!
