What we're Wearing

What We’re Wearing, Vol. 037

For me:  I was using some shu uemura eyeshadows for a bronzy-gold look with some glitter, which did some cool reflective things, but did have a bit of fall out, so it was a catch-22 situation. Loved it… but still frustrated a bit! Paired it with a red lip!

What was your favorite look you wore this week?

    I love the look I have on today. It’s a simply smokey eye with MAC’s Painterly paint pot all over the lid; dark brown gel liner smudged along the top lashes, thicker on the outer corner and going in about 1/4 of the way on lower lashes; topped with MAC’s Satin Taupe along the lash line that I smoked out into a subtle wing in the outer corner. Then I blended out the edges with MAC’s Brule. Last was a single coat of Cover Girl’s Lash Blash.

    On my face is Yves Saint Laurent’s Teinte Radiance set with MAC’s Mineralized Skin Finish Natural. Then I used Nars’ Laguna/Orgasm duo for a subtle flush.

    Finally I lightly glossed my lips with NYX’s Sweet Heart.

  3. I wore my usual makeup but with Orgasm blush and Urban Decay Waterproof Eyeliner in Siren. I went to see Les Miz last night. There were a couple teary moments in the show and my eyeliner stayed put. Later that evening, I told my date my real age which is 10 years more than he thought. He didn’t believe me. LOL It was a great date.

  4. My date look last night. Simple nudes, with a bit of flush thanks to UD’s Baked Bronzer and Models Own Cheeky Pink Blusher. Not what I’d call “adventurous”, but always gorgeous, and getting to play around with some new essentials from Dior always helps. ;D

  5. I wore silver and gold eyeshadow with bright pink/purple lips. African Queen lipglosss from NYX is one of my favorites!

    i used my prince noir lipstick all week :)

  7. I went back to purples for the first time in 2 years! Been so busy, I haven’t had time for mu.

    Used MAC dovefeather all over my lid and blended it with nocturnelle.

  8. Golden eyeshadow whit a navi blue kohl eyeliner. Nice combination! Loved it!

    For a date last night I wore Benefit’s Cream Eyeshadow in Tidal Rave, used Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner in Trooper on my upper lid and my lashline, added mascara and finished it off with a shimmery pink lipgloss from Rimmel.

    Too bad the date sucked. I had more fun applying my makeup, haha.

    • Sorry to hear about your date. I know exactly what you mean. Some dates are just a waste of make up. Don’t waste the pretty!

      ttfn :) Yuki

  10. Today I did a soft, slightly smoky brown eye look, paired with Mac’s Devil blush (such a great autumn shade) and Estee Lauder’s Bitten Fig lipstick (which has become one of my favourite reds).

  11. Patrizia

    MAC lashes #3
    Essence black eyeliner
    MAC Diva Lipstick

    I’ve decided to flex my UD Ammo palette all this week and next, though my first look was a fairly neutral one for autumn. Maui Wowie in the inner corner, Chopper across the lid, and Smog in the corner blending into the crease. A Vicotoria Jackson matte beige as the brow highlighter. Sephora kohl eyeliner in the waterline. Victoria Jackson dark pink blush dusted lightly over the apple of the cheeks. No lip stain, just a clear gloss for a little shine.

    I also had a nice bit of glitter over my hollows thanks to the fallout from Maui Wowie. I felt a little like a disco ball. Definitely a shade to apply carefully!

  13. Russel

    I just got Star’s and Rockets so I had so much fun playing around with it. I wore it with UD purple haze and MAC handwritten in the crease and All that glitters subtly for highlight. On the face I wore the new Match Master’s foundation from MAC and some light pink blush, and some neutral lips. :D

  14. Kelli

    My favorite look was MAC Circa Plum pigment on my lid, MAC Violet pigment hon the lower lashline. I used MAC Shadowy Lady in the crease and on the corner of the lower lashline. I also used Pop Beauty pigment in Antique Gold on the inner corner with Urban Decay Zero liner on the top lash line. I used Nars Taj Mahal blush on my cheeks with Barry M blush in Apricot on top of it. Loved the look and it definitely warmed up my face and accentuated my brown eyes.

  15. Katie

    I’ve been loving my Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation all week! First drugstore foundation I’ve ventured to and I like it a lot. (Laura Mercier original foundation primer underneath set with LM translucent set powder)
    I’ve also been wearing MAC Gingerly blush as a contour/bronzer and NARS Orgasm together and they look lovely :)

  16. The only look I’ve done so far this week was last night: geometric greens on the eyes, rosy doll cheeks, and black lips with black and silver holographic glitter.

  17. My eyes wore Urban Decay Sin topped with a light layer of MAC Club on the lid, and Urban Decay Darkhorse in the crease. Topped it off with Tarte liner in black and a swipe of Lights, Camera, Lashes. I finished the look off with Tarte Natural Beauty cheek stain and Envy lip stain.

  18. Debra

    Bobbi Brown “Starry Night” cream eye shadow on the lid and smudged into the crease; NARS Nouveau Monde, the lilac shade on the brow bone and the olive green in the crease and blended out. MAC Tarnish eyeliner, Becca Figi eyeliner/illuminator. Chanel Aqualumiere founation; MAC Azalea blossom blush and Chanel Imprevu blush; on the lips, Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Desert Rose.

  19. I’m still scrubbing the paint and pigment off of me from a photoshoot yesterday. I actually had it in my ears. LOL!

  20. Cat

    I liked my look today. I’m wearing Mac’s Steamy with a shimmery black I got in Europe ages ago (I think the brand is Helen or something-Helen?) and I worked on my blending. It’s an intense look but I like it!

    The only makeup I did this week was trying out an old Fafi facechart – Strawbaby. I don’t have any of the products but I did pretty ok with what I own :) Totally wearable and worked out well.

    Thank you Christine for your MAC database – it makes finding substitutes so much easier!!

  23. Mariella

    Geez, I always have a hard time remembering (I should write them down so I can at least recreate a look I liked). I wore TheBalm’s All About Alex the other day and loved how it looked but for the life of me, I cannot remember what I wore with it – possibly WnW’s Brulee on the lid and a Gosh pencil in either Metallic Brass or Truly Brown. I think I had Pinch o’Peach on my cheeks (I have to make a dent in that blush, at least! It still look brand new!).

  26. A few days ago I pulled out my Covergirl Firecracker trio, which I previously hated. I put it over some NYX White eyeshadow Base and it actually turned out way cute. It just need a little boost from the white base
