    - On my cheeks : Chanel Rose Initiale and Benefit Hervana
    – On my eyelids : Kiko quad Unexpected Rosy Taupe, I also tried one Kiko water eyeshadow in graphite, very pretty indeed.I used Vent Glacé too, Nars eyeshadows are so great ! Mascara Benefit Bad Gal in black
    – On my lips : Kiko 606 lipstick beautiful red, Burberry Military red
    – On my toes : currently a Kiko nail polish as a base ( deep blue ) and Deboral Lippmann Across the Universe as a top.

    I also used a Kiko compact foundation, well the result was not so good at my age I very often use a simple combination blush + lipstick or just eye makeup with a lip balm, that kind of thing. Too much makeup makes me look older ( I am very close to 45 ) so I stay ” light ” and it works astonishingly well !

    Oh you look especially gorgeous here! Great look indeed.

    Mine was rather simple, I wore it today: I used the Chanel Sable Emouvant Eyeshadow duo(lighter shade as a base, and as a highlighter on the brow bone. Brown shade on the outer corner and blended in the crease), Giorgio Armani #5 Pencil on the lower lashline, Nars Orgasm on the cheeks, Chanel Calypso Glossimer on the lips!

    This week, I’ve been falling back on Stila Cloud on the lid, MAC Copperplate on the outer 1/3 and in the crease, any old matte highlight shade and black pencil liner, smudged out. MAC Desert Rose (that thing will not DIE) on my cheeks, Lustering on my lips and Marcelle BB cream instead of foundation. Quick and easy for a really crazy busy time of year.

    not a whole look, but i did get tom ford lovelust blush yesterday and it’s my absolute favorite thing ever!

  10. Kristabelle

    Ooh I really like that look, so soft and pretty!

    My favorite is what I’m gonna wear to a party tonight- a smoky eye with UD Gunmetal and some OCC Mirrorball glitter on the lid, ardell demi-wispies, and my current favorite nude lip combo- L’oreal Fairest Nude with NYX Sugar Pie gloss on top.
    Usually I’d do a red lip for a holiday party, but I am gonna be drinking and (1) don’t wanna leave lipstick all over my glass (2) don’t feel like touching up 50 times.

    thats one of the prettiest looks I’ve seen on you! As for me, I have been loving a Maybelline tattoo shadow in black paired with a peach lip glaze… too many other products to list :P

  12. LOVE everything on you, particularly the lipstick!

    This week my favorite look is done with Becca Baroque all over my lids, Burberry Pale Barley in the inner corner and inner half, Chanel Rose Initiale on my cheeks, and Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro 400! The color is fantastic, but unfortunately the formula either migrates on me or I have to use SO little that it is worn off very fast. It does leave a very even stain though!

    Christine, have you changed foundations? Your skin looks amazing! And man, that blush.. I really need a bareMinerals haul sometime soon.

  16. This is my absolute favorite picture of yours.

    Everything just looks so well and put-together (I mean you always look great and put-together), but this look on you is GORGEOUS!

    Are you wearing a highlighter here! You have such a beautiful glow!

    • No highlighter – I used Guerlain Wulong to set!

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mindy Smith AZSunshine

        Christine your killing me! I have been trying to resist the Wulong powder since you raved about it. I want it so bad but $170! Yikes! Your chipping away at my self control… My local Dillard’s still has stock… I do not need it, I do not need it…

        • LOL! Have you checked out the Voyage version? You can purchase that as a refill for $55 I believe – you’d just have to put it into your own compact (or empty palette). I just purchased Voyage, but it hasn’t arrived yet – am hoping it is as lovely as Wulong.

          • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Mindy Smith AZSunshine

            I haven’t tried it yet but you have to let me know if Voyage is just as good! If it is, maybe I’ll purchase Wulong knowing that I can fill it with Voyage later on… Do you only use this to set or do you carry it with you for touch ups?

    Your face = perfection! My favorite look this week was what I wore yesterday to attend Handel’s Messiah at the Kennedy Center in DC. UD Naked Foundation, MUFE Full Cover Concealer, Benefit Hervana blush, Benefit Watt’s Up!, Bobbi Brown cream eyeliner in a cat eye shape, Lancome Hynose Drama and Hypnose Star mascaras (I layer both), and Tarina Tarantino lip stick with UD Naked high saturated lip pencil/gloss. Set my make up with MUFE powder. Done :)

  19. So pleased to see a full face for What We’re Wearing! I’ve often though it would be nice. :)

    Armani Eye to kill *palette?!* Oh no. I think I just heard my checkbook cry out in fear.

    No big ones for me this week, as I’ve either been extremely busy or too sick, but you look gorgeous! A very relaxed, soft beauty.

  22. Liz
