Lol, me too! *Sniff, sniff.* I had a quiet pj (aka sweatpants) and no makeup night with my boyfriend and we watched movies…and I still am in my pj’s.

Just my Nyx Butter Gloss in Cherry Pie! Literally, that was it. Not even foundation! OK, I concealed a couple spots πŸ˜‰

I was hosting my family’s New Year celebration, though, so in the end I didn’t get time to do much before everyone arrived! πŸ˜›

All Guerlain:

Liu palette on eyes; Madame Rougit and Cruel Gardenia on cheeks; Rouge G in Provocative on lips. Parure Aqua foundation and the anniversary Meteorites pearls on my face. A little spritz of Or Imperial Sublime Radiant Powder in my hair.

I wore Bare Minerals loose eyeshadow powder in True Gold and Queen Tiffany, Mac Matchmaster foundation, Make Up For Ever HD micropowder, and Mac lipstick in Ruby Woo. The funny thing (or sad, really) is that I did my full makeup routine to stay at home alone with my pets. But they thought I looked pretty, I’m sure! πŸ™‚

I did a dark smoky eye with Loaded from the UD Smoked palette, with a little L’Oreal Golden Emerald and the blue half of UD Aura as a tear duct and brow highlight (so I looked a bit extraterrestrial, but it matched my dress).
I used MAC Sunbasque and MAC Talk of the Town as blush and highlighted with a mix of Talk of the Town and Hourglass Diffused Light.
MAC Hug Me and You’ve Got It on my lips. So overall I looked very shiny…

Hubby and I had a lot of fun and stayed out until 2:30 AM which is rare.

Washed all my work makeup off, stayed in, and used my beloved Aztec Secret clay mask! <3 Does this count somehow? Haha!

I know, real party animal, right?

Guerlain’s Christmas collection, with Fyrinnae’s Imortality as an eyeliner. I’ve truly fallen for how well their darker colors work with the pixie epoxy to make a shimmery liner that stays put on my oily, makeup eating lids!

I just used neutrals for a low maintenance look as I planned on having a few drinks and nobody wants to worry about touching up when they’re having fun! I used the Theodora UD palette for my eye look and some random sheer pink gloss I had (benefit I think?)

P.S. I hope Guerlain’s new collection is as awesome as I’m expecting!

I kept it really minimal since we weren’t doing anything. Basically I just finished my skin, on my cheeks I wore NARS Desire & MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Superb, mascara, brows, & the NYX Butter Gloss in Merenque.

I did a cut crease with the Lorac Pro mattes and UD Sidecar, Tarte Dollface cheeks and UD Catfight on the lips, and i’m kicking myself for not taking any pictures!

I went with a burgundy and gold eye with winged eyeliner and a matte dark red lip (Sleek’s Cranberry), and my boyfriend and I went out to watch some amazing fireworks. And my lipstick stayed on all night. It’s my new love.

Bobbi Brown skin foundation, layered Maybelline dark circle eraser in brightning shade with Tarte BB correcting concealer, Hourglass ambient light in dim to set, Mac bronzer in soft sand to bronze and contour, The Balm fratboy blush, Bobbi Brown party shimmer to highlight, eyes were all Urban Decay used the Naked 2 palette, pistol, verve and snake bite with glamrock glitter liner over top, Mac fluidline in black track to wing, Tarte lights camera flashes mascara, and Mac Faux lipstick with Bubble Lounge lip glee over top

Black pinstripe dress(sleeveless, sweetheart neckline), black velvet heels, black opera length gloves. Manic Panic “virgin” white face powder, Tokidoki luminosa powder, MAC “sin” lipstick, UD “oil slick” eye liner, Kat von D “confessional” and Sephora “starry sky” eye shadows.

Quiet-ish night in but I used BM Breathtaking (from The Scenic Route Duo) on the inner corner/inner 3rd of my lids (it’s a pale, shimmery golden-white) with the brown side of MAC’s Illusionary/Burning Ambition duo on the outer 2/3 and in the crease and under my lower lashes. I used MAC Rosemary and Thyme eye kohl to line but didn’t like the effect so went over it with Powersurge. Instead of foundation, I used IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness buffed into my skin. Cheeks – MAC Desert Rose (it still won’t DIE); to bring a bit of “party” to my face (we stayed in but, still, it was NYE), I wore Chanel Pirate on my lips.

Happy New Year Christine! Can’t wait to read your review on the new Guerlain Meteorites Perles!!
So… my make up…
Skin: chanel mat lumiere and poudre universelle, guerlain wulong, chanel accent for blush, estee lauder double wear as an undereye concealer and mufe full cover on some spots.
Lips: Burberry Oxblood Lip Mist
Eyes: le volume de chanel, mac rubenesque painpot and YSL ombres duolumieres in Soft Brown

I wore revlon colorstay whipped creme foundation (love it!) and MAC pleasurebomb lipstick which I later switched to Lime crime red velvet velvetine because I got tipsy and my pleasurebomb smeared everywhere. πŸ™‚ Tipsy girls need lip stains! I also wore waterproof mascara l’oreal butterfly (not a huge fan yet) and josie maran cheek stain.

I wore Urban Decay primer potion in Greed, Smashbox face and under eye primers, MAC Studio Conceal and Correct palette in Light. I made a handmade mixture of MAC Studio Sculpt in NC15 and MAC Face and Body in N1 and White (I am quite fair complected). I finished it lightly with MAC Magically Cooling Powder in Truth & Light and MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lightscapades (which is actually a closer match to my skin than any powder I have ever used, as MAC NW10 powder is way too dark and pink). I wore Too Faced Snow Angel on the brow bone, Too Faced Too-Too in the crease, Too Faced Joy on the lid, and MAC vanilla pigment below lower lash line and near tear ducts. I finished the eyes with MAC Mystery green pearl liner, MAC Haute and Naughty mascara (my favorite ever, better than Dior Showstopper!), and MAC Veluxe Brow Liner in Redhead. I lightly used MAC Lured to Love and the outside shade in the Centre of Attention pan, contouring with Talk of the Town and a sprinkle of the gold inside shimmer in Centre of Attention. I wore MAC lip primer, MAC More to Love lip pencil, Urban Decay Lovechild Super-Saturated lip color, and MAC Petite Indulgence lipglass. I finished the look with Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray. It was a subtle look, despite the number of steps. Did I mention this was just for work?

I decided to be simple and went with winged eyeliner and black lipstick… But after some drinking I looked like a printer malfunction. Bad idea!

mufe hd foundation 118, mac tenderling blush, armani bronzer(as conturing) mac paint pot groundwork(my to go eye product) max factor mascara, benefit girl meet pearl highlighter, tom ford black orchid lipstick, rimmel cherry kiss lipliner, chanel rouge noir nail polish

very nud-ish face with dark-ish lips

Fun question! Let’s see…100% Pure luminizing primer and MUFE HD Invisible Cover for face makeup base. NARS eye primer and MAC Paints in Bamboom for eyeshadow base. Combined and applied Glance and Impulse from Stila’s In the Moment palette on the inner 2/3 of lid. Applied Improvise from the same palette in crease, blending onto outer 1/3 of lid. Lined eyes with Clinique cream eyeliner in black – mainly rounded placement on the lashline with a small wing. Smudged the black cream eyeliner with MAC Jealousy Wakes (!!), lining the upper lashline, blending with the wing, and blending onto the outer V. Concealed with MAC Pro Longwear concealer and set face makeup lightly with MAC Studio Fix and Guerlain Terracotta 4 Seasons in (the old) Brunettes. Applied MAC Sur for blush and contoured a bit with Guerlain Crazy Terracotta Healthy Glow powder. Lips were simple – YSL Glossy Stain in 109 Fuchsia Fugitive. This was a totally crazy combo of colors, I know, but it somehow worked – other than the eyes, I kept the makeup defined but subtle – no strong lines. All of my friends LOVED Jealousy Wakes, Christine! πŸ™‚

Christine so did I!!!! I was in the Saks store Friday after Christmas and they had just put the product out I LOVE the Bubble cream blush I wore that in cherry. And got many compliments on it! Guerlain never seems to disappoint and they didn’t with this collection either. I would however love to see them do more of the Rouge G Le Brilliants seems they have slimmed the choices of those down to like only 4 colors.m

I believe it was Oscar Wilde who said, “When you’re alone, you’re always in good company!” Each to his own, of course, but staying home with your beloved pets sounds much nicer than being in a loud crowd and having to drive home on a night that is notorious for drunk and high drivers. Glad everybody stayed safe and well.

Tarte Face Primer, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation with a touch of MAC Lustre Drops in Pink Pearl, Touche Γ‰clat under eye, and Revlon concealer on face.
Eyes: Bare Minerals Velvet Lavender/Mauve mixed, LORAC Taupe as transition color,
em Couples Gold in crease, em Cranberry Cocktail in outer V, Milani Extreme Eye Tech Liner on upper lash line, small wing, Bare Minerals Lagoon on lower lash line. False lashes. Light mascara.
Face: Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Inspiration as a base to em Countdown blush.
Lips: Random mix of medium and deep plum lipstick shades mixed together with light mauve gloss under and over for moisture.
Way more than I usually wear.

Oh, and I forgot – MAC Amorous Alloy in outer part of crease. That added the subtle sheen I needed. Was the fourth of a day of events, and I looked visibly exhausted so the Visine eye drops before it all was also key to look, which was primarily a deep winter copper wine effect.

Eyes: chanel illusoire on upper and lower lid. Lined upper woth mirifique. Vanilla pencil on waterline. Tightlined w. Mac blacktrack. Mascara masterpiece max.
Face: vitalumiere in limpide and daniel sandler watercolor blush in cherub.
Clear lipgloss!

I went to dinner with a friend then I came home and played around some more with Naked 3. I ended up wearing Buzz on the inner corner and lid then Darkside with Blackheart in the outer v and into the lashline. Used Strange to highlight and Nooner with Darkside in the crease blended out with Limit.

I wore the estee lauder doublewear foundation, mac pro longwear concealer, mac msf natural in medium plus as a contour, mac peachy keen blush, mac msf in soft and gentle, maybelline expertwear eyeshadow quad in natural smokes, maybelline master precise felt tip liner, ysl babydoll mascara, ardell demi lashes, loreal made for me naturals lipstick in 235 nude

Happy New Year! I did some late afternoon shopping before heading home so it was smoky purple with smudged black UD Perversion and Em Cosmetics Passion Berries matte lipstick that made it through to midnight.

hmmm… celebrated new year at home… urban decay eyeliner top it with mac riri rose gold liquid eyeliner lancome base for eyelashes loreal butterfly mascara, marc Jacob promiscuous blush and the dior 644 lipstick… happy new year!

Not a lick of makeup πŸ™ we were in charge of making dessert and we had the worst pie making day we have ever had so no time for makeup last night.

I was wearing a pretty sparkly skirt and meeting some new people I wanted to impress, so wanted to keep it low key so I didn’t look over the top. What I went with was mac vanilla on the lids, just to even them out and add some brightness, then a black cat eye with bobbi brown gel liner. I then added a thin line of MUFE’s silver aqua cream (don’t remember the number) as a stripe above the black, so it was festive and shimmery without being too heavy or loud.

I layered a becca beach tint (don’t remember which one – something punchy, maybe watermelon) and nars orgasm on the cheeks. Layered same beach tint and my dior sparkly red gloss on my lips, blotted down so it wasn’t a full on red lip and I still looked kissable :). So basically rosy cheeks and lips. MUD foundation and becca luminous skin in pearl to round it out.

Fun Question! I love to see what combinations people like to wear.

Face: MUFE Face & Body #18
Cheeks: MAC Sweet as Cocoa Blush
Lips: NYX Brown lip liner, Mac Ravishing topped off with NYX Natural lip gloss
Eyes: Mac Carbon & Scene, Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner, Benefit Bad Girl Mascara

I used Stila’s Stay All Day BB cream in lieu of foundation – I found it stays better and has adequate enough coverage without picking up any dry patches. I applied this after using a heavy application of BeneTint, which I find lends a natural-looking flush to my face.
For my eyes, I used Milani’s eye primer, MAC Paint Pot in Quite Natural on my upper lid well into the crease, Sephora’s Contour Eye Pencil in Driving in Malaysia on my lower lashline (blended out), Sephora’s liquid liner in Khaki Glitter on the upper lashline (winged), and Jordana’s Best Lash Extreme mascara (godsend!).
On my lips, I used Jordana’s Easyliner for Lips in Terra Kiss all over the lip, then layered NARS Pure Matte lipstick in Amsterdam over top, then NARS Larger Than Life gloss in Rouge Tribal on top. (Perfect oxblood lip!)

I went for a Rose Gold look using the Naked 3 Palette πŸ™‚

Face: Givenchy Mister Mat Primer, NARS Sheer Glow in Deauville (mixed with a little bit of MUFE Full Cover Concealer #6).

Brows: Lancome Brow Expert in Brunette (a waxy, colored gel) & Anastasia Brow Whiz in Medium Ash

Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base, Burnout Eyeshadow all over the upper lid and lower lashline with a very thin black line on the upper lashes using Stila Liquid Eyeliner. Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara on upper and lower lashes with MAC Eyelashes in #34.

Cheeks: Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder to contour and Benefit Rockateur as Blush. Benefit Watts Up Highlighter.

Lips: Dior Lip Maximizer Gloss topped with NYX Beige Lipgloss.

For many years I had a chance to spend New Years Eve on vacay and plan my makeup weeks before. My Barcelona makeup was; Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, Smashbox primer, YSL Teint Radiance foundation # Peach, Benefit Bo-ing, NARS light optimizing loose powder, NARS eye primer, UD Virgin e/s, NARS All About Eve e/s, Bobbi Brown gel eye liner # black ink, UD Heavy Metal eye liner # Spandex, NARS Orgasm & Albatross, MAC lipliner # Brick, NARS lipstick # Fire Down Below and Chanel # Dragon.
