Tom Ford Escapade and Pink Haze Cream Colors on eyes, Tom Ford Lovelust blush, Bobbi Brown Pink Sequin lipgloss. I seriously could use those every day, but as is, it’s my go-to for when we’re heading out for a dinner date after I’ve finished testing other stuff for the day. I’m totally obsessed with the two Tom Ford Cream Colors from summer, though. They’re magical.

Just curious Christine, what’s your technique for applying pink haze and what brush do u use? It’s a beautiful color, but I have oily lids and it creases every time I wear it.

Normal daily make up for me means a full face. But I have actually gone all of July so far with nothing more than my brows done, & 2 coats of mascara. And to be honest, it has been very refreshing for a change. I’ve really enjoyed it! 🙂

I have been minimal with makeup, so I just use Mac blush dollymix lightly, and lip liner, Mac Lustering lipstick, or lip liner and Lancôme Rose Rhapsodie lipstick, or lip liner and Chanel Rouge Allure Exaltee lipstick if I want to go bold. I just use black mascara to finish the look, concealer on under eye circles and I´m ready to go out. Even if I wanted to do more makeup, lately I just don´t have the time…

It’s nearing the end of Winter here in Oz so I’ve been wearing pretty heavy looks lately.
On the eyes, it’s been Maybelline Time for Wine quad, MAC Blushbaby and Enough Said for cheeks (depending on lips), and mainly NYX Bloody Mary or YSL Rouge Volupte Shine #19. I’m close to finishing up almost all of those from using them so much lol!

Minimum makeup it’s been so hot. Eyeliner, mascara, blot powder and concealer where needed.

Bankrupt: Diorskin nude powder compact in Clair, Guerlain Pink Punk for blusher, torned between Gigi, Girly (Guerlain, Rouge G) and Disco (Shiseido Laquer) and in between Les Roses (Guerlain) and a boring plain black cat eye with Blacktrack Fluidline and Shiseido’s Shimmering Cream Eye Color in white. My biggest deception of this months: eye primer and Lingerie de Peau, both from Guerlain 🙁

I’ve been on a Milani kick! Lumene BB, Milani eye primer, Milani Shadow Eyez 12 hour pencil in Champagne Toast, Milani e/s in Beach Sand, Milani blush in Dolce Pink, Lancome bronzer, Milani highlighter. Brown Prescriptives e/l, and Cover Girl volume mascara in brown. Got the idea from a video on the Milani site and love the look!

Tightline with Stila Stay All Day liquid liner.
Estee Lauder Gelee powder Highlighter in Heat Wave.
Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids in Hot Plum (after work only for this item).

Those are the things I’ve been wearing consistently all summer.

Light skin makeup (BB cream, usually), no bronzer, blush, highlighter, neutral eyes, waterproof mascara, and bright lips. I was going crazy with the bronzer up until recently haha.

For eyes, I’ve been going back and forth between the Tarte for Aqualilies palette (Hammock, Bikini and Sundeck) and my newest acquisition, the Stila In the Garden palette. Cheeks – Tarte Natural Beauty almost every day (though I did use MAC’s Early Morning a few times just to try to get some use from it! Face has mostly been Marcelle BB Cream with SPF (I want to finish it up so I can buy Smashbox CC cream). Sephora Driving In Malaysia or GOSH Metallic Brass to line my eyes and on my lips, I’ve really been liking Guerlain Champs Elysees this month. It’s a brighter shade than I usually wear but no one has recoiled in horror at it so I guess it’s not as alarming as I sometimes think. And I’ve been relying on Essence All About Matt to keep my shinies at bay in the recent hot and humid weather we’ve had.

I’ve been doing my usual hot-weather foundation, which consists of a TM & MPF, with bronzer & highlighter (typically LORAC TANtalizer duo or WnW Ticket To Brazil & Reserve Your Cabana). For eyes, I’ve been using Maybelline Color Tattoos in Seashore Frosts, Precious Pear, Waves of White, or Lavish Lavender on the lid, with Tough As Taupe through the lid. I follow this up with black mascara, MUFE Aqua Black on the upper lashline, & Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil on the water line. For lips, it’s usually just a tinted lip balm, which varies daily.

Giorgio Armani eyes to kill eyeshadow in #24 as a smokey eye. Armani waterproof black eyeliner pencil smudged around the eye and also on waterline. lastly, for the eyes Chanel volume mascara. For face tom ford lovelust blush, nars laguna, marylou manizer. For lips tom ford nude vanille with nars striptease gloss over it.

Mac satin taupe on the lid with winged liner (loreal liner intense). Mac ambering rose blush. For my lips I lightly tap on and blend mac impassioned lipstick to get a stain. This is a very quick and easy look.

I actually started to use colors I didn’t reach for at all: a light shimmery yellow on the lid, a coppery shade in the crease with a light orange one at its outer edge that fades in to a sheer white highlight on the brow bone. I finished the look with a light pink eyeshadow on the lower lash line. The result is fresh and sweet, and all thanks to Christine’s Looks for the inspiration 🙂

I usually pair this look with a coral blush and a golden coral lipgloss (I have hazel eyes, and a NC35 skin in the summer)

During the summer, I especially prefer a fresh, quick and easy, “less is more” look, so the following items are what I’ve been reaching for daily as of lately:

Primer – Monistat Anti-chafing Gel
Foundation – Sephora Microsmooth Powder Foundation
Brows – NYX Single Eyeshadow in Black
Eyes – NYX Slim Eyeliner in Dark Brown
Cheeks – Rock & Republic Blush in Shameless
Lips – MAC Tinted Lipglass in Spice

Hmm! Id say my stila illuminating foundation in the lightest shade, Nars creamy concealer in the lightest shade, Nars nico on my lids, a random brown in the crease. Urban decay rock star eyeliner smushed into my lash line, benefit they’re real mascara, Laura mercier transparent powder to set my face, too faced 16 hr bronzer, either benefit Hervana blush, or Nars gaiety blush, Dior amber diamond to highlight and then for lipstick bite cava or a random Mac gloss! My brows are always the same and thts Mac lingering!

I’ve been using my new LORAC Pro Pallet like crazy! My go-to look has been Makeup Forever Matte Velvet +, Chocolate Soleil Bronzer from Too Faced, Rio Mineralized Skin Finish by MAC, LORAC Pro Light Bronze on the lid, Pewter in the crease and Cream as my highlight. I finish it with UD brown liquid liner on top and Sephora brown pencil liner on my bottom lash line, UD Faint on my brows and Bite lipstick in Pepper. I love this look! OH! And Mally mascara (which I don’t like, but am trying to use up).
