Today I have on no makeup, I never left the house…lol. I did play with my new Smashbox Trio called “Shutter Speed”. I made up one of my eyes to try it out.

Mostly worn off foundation, my powder is long gone and I’m all shiny (it’s quarter to 7pm), slightlu creased shmimmery pink, gold and dirty grey eyeshadow, smudgy brown liner, mascara, a tiny bit of Guerlain Rosee Du Primtemps blush remains and most of my Guerlain Gems has transferred to my wine glass (currently empty, quite sadly).

I looked great this morning at 8am went I went to work (I just got home) and I’m guessing I look a bit tired now but I’m in my blue and pink elephant pajama pants, a tshirt and new polka dot slippers so I don’t really care too much.


Mac Chamomile and Era eyeshadow, UD 24/7 liner in Zero, and UD Skyscraper multi-benefit mascara. Oh yeah, some Laura Geller tinter moisturizer too.

I’m wearing – Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel, Inglot face primer, MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15, MAC Studio Finish concealer in NC15, MAC Studio Fix powder in NW15, Revlon mascara (double ended…white and black?), Inglot gel eyeliner in 77 (black), MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, MAC mineralise duo eyeshadow in Illusionary and Burning Ambition, MAC Viva Glam Gaga, and Clinique blush. Just an average day at work! πŸ™‚

Just tested Smashbox’s Photo finish Primer. Worked great for me! On top of that I’m wearing Mac Concealer in NW35 and Mac Studio Fix Foundation in C4. On my cheeks I have Nars Orgasm blush. On my lips I have Clinique’s Precious Pink lipstick. On my eyes I used Urban Decay Primer Potion. Covered my eyelid with Sephora’s california blonde #2 eyeshadow (love it) and I used wet n wild’s eyeliner in black for a medium thick line and a defined wing. This is my go to look for instant happiness. Lol Thanks for the question! <3 <3

I love questions like this! The answers are always super fun to read. Right now I have my usual sorta everyday look on: MAC studio fix concealer, MAC MSF natural powder as foundation, Benefit “Moody” eyeshadow to fill in my brows, Bloom black liquid liner, Urban Decay “Honey” 24/7 liner on my waterline (I’m suuuuper pale – my NC15 concealer/”light” MSF powder are both actually a little too dark for me, but I can’t find anything lighter anywhere! – so dark liner on my lower lid looks horrible, especially on my huge, round white-girl eyes, but I love how Honey looks! I wear it every day on my waterline), Maybelline Colossal Volum’Express mascara, Benefit Coralista, and Chanel “Mandarin” Rouge Allure Laque, which I bought thanks to you, Christine! And you were so right, girlfriend: the formula on these is AMAZING. I want them all, but I don’t love any of the other colours enough to make the splurge worth it. I wish they’d release more!

My 5 minutes look for school!

Christine, how would you compare Kiehl’s TM to Korres TM? Which one do you prefer or would recommend? Also can you compare it to Laura Mercier TM? Thanks! πŸ™‚

Kiehl’s is more moisturizing and has a dewier finish than Korres. I’ve never tried Laura Mercier’s, sorry!

I just got Kiehl’s (can’t beat 2.5 oz. for $24.50!) and I’m definitely saving it for dry days – it’s VERY moisturizing and is making me a touch oily. But it’s a nice look! My skin likes Korres better though πŸ™‚

Thank you Christine! I’m trying to figure which one to get since spring is here summer is around the corner here in LA!

Today I wore Korres Ginger & Vitamin Foundation with NARS Deep Throat, UD 24/7 in zero in mu upper waterline, Covergirl Lash Blast mascara, and UD pocket rocket in Eric.

I like Laura Mercier TM for a soft matte finish but it’s very light, not heavily moisturizing. Lately I’ve been using MAC Mineralize Foundation SPF 15 instead (the new cream version) – it’s so creamy and works great even around the eyes and it leaves my skin feeling really soft with a beautiful subtle glow. ‘Haven’t used the Laura Mercier as much since I’ve found this!

Korres Watermelon Tinted Moisturizer (which my skin adores), Benefit PosieTint and High Beam on my cheeks, some assorted eyeshadows that look a bit muddy, sadly πŸ™ (mostly the Graphic Gardens palette), UD Flipside liner, Korres mascara, Shy Girl lipstick, and Sonic Vibe lipglass.

Absolutely nothing… it’s an extremely rare day when I wear makeup to work… I just can’t lose a valuable 20 mins of sleep just to paint my face in the am. I wear glasses when I’m not wearing any makeup so that’s my facial coverage lol

I’m wearing Revlon Photoready Foundation (Golden Beige), which I mixed with Philosophy’s The Present; Prim and Proper blush with Trace Gold on top; The Balm’s Mary Lou Manizer to highlight; Lancome bronzer (It was a sample — not sure of the color) to contour; and So Ceylon MSF just over the bronzer on the cheeks. I have nothing on my eyes. I did fill in my brows with Anastasia’s brow pencil though.
