MAC Violetta as bright as I could possibly get it.

I was going out shopping today with friends which always inspires me to dress fashionably. And during the school year I’m usually stuck in the art studios wearing really blah clothes that are covered in paint, so I take advantage of the times when I can wear my nice clothes. And Violetta totally did not go with what I was wearing and I don’t care! It makes me feel amazing. 😀

A wee bit embarassed to admit it, but I wore nothing. Yesterday I wasn’t feeling well, so i didn’t want to lean towards the mirror. And now I’m waiting for the sun to come up so i can try out several different looks with my new haul.

Face:Kanebo Coffret D’or Beauty Lasting Veil UV as primer; Coffret D’or Beauty LAsting Liquid UV BE-D as my foundation; and Coffret D’or Translucent Make Up Powder.
Cheeks: Guerlain Meteorites Beige Chic as my very light bronzer
Eyes: Shiseido The Makeup Silky Eyeshadow Quad in Desert Winds. I only used 2 shades to create a smokey eye, the darkest shade, w/c is the color of rich chocolate brown for my lids and lower lash line, and the light golden shade as my highlighter.
Lips: Kanebo Kate Liquid Rogue N in PK-6

Base: Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Primer, Chinadoll Foundation in Look 1, Chinadoll Concealer and Camera Finish Compact Look 1.
Eyes: Inglot Silver, MAC Mi’Lady purple and Cloudburst, Bourjois Beige Rose with Blitz n Glitz liner, Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Glam Black mascara.
Cheeks: Napoleon Perdis Blush Patrol.
Lips: MAC Chatterbox.

I’m happy with the result 🙂
