Here's my FOTD for today. I woke up and it was really sunny (but freezing) outside so i thought i'd do a spring look, don't ask how i ended up with a dark brown eye look but i did!

FACE:

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

Estee Lauder Lucidity Transcluent Powder

Shu M Pink 30 Blush

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer under eyes

YSL Touche Eclat under eyes

EYES:

MAC Bare Canvas as an e/s base

MAC Old Gold Pigment on lids

MAC Chocolate Brown Pigment in crease & outer corners

MAC DipDown Fluidline to line top lash line & lower inner rims

Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara

LIPS:

Rimnel Get Up & Go Lipliner

Origins Lipgloss in Moonshine

FRAGRANCE:

JLO STill

VERDICT:

I made a mistake when applying my liner on my top lash line so to cover up i drew a thick line (big mistake for a daytime look but oh well!)

I'm liking the gloss (came in the post this week) but i think it might be too shimmery for daytime wear

Laura, I bet browns would look great with your blue eyes, especially with some gold shadow thrown in there!

You know, it's crazy that you are already awake and ready to go on Friday morning, and I still think it's Thursday night ... Of course there are a few hours time zone difference, but it is 4am here -- I am trying to get my stupid computer program that is due on Friday (today I guess! lol) at midnight to work, though I am making some significant progress so I may go to bed soon! Fortunately the first thing on my schedule tomorrow is teaching a class at 1:30 but I still anticipate not getting much sleep and waking up late and rushing with the hair and makeup
Ahh the joys of grad school....

(And why am I on this board when I should be working you may ask? Well every time I run my program it takes a few minutes so I can read a post or two while it runs
)

Thanks Laura! Yeah, those two piggies are really pretty. I'm loving the samples I bought!

I usually don't post pics because they NEVER come out looking right. lol. They're either blurry or the colors don't look right. I guess I was lucky tonight.

Thanks Jess! I'll try.It just depends on whether my camera wants to work with me or not. I won't post full face shots. I've been trying to take my own face shots and I end up looking like an alien. lol! So I'll just stick to eye collages.

Hey Lizzy, you should try Aromaleigh samples in level 3. You look around the same complexion as me. Just try the 3w, 3y, 3n, 3l and play around to find the right combo.

Ok, so my FOTD is

FACE- Chanel double perfection compact in Rich Beige and Medium Beige (I'm in between the two right now)

Chanel irreele blush in Incognito and Senna blush in Caprice

EYES- Ultima II fade not crease not

Aromaleigh in snow on lid, damask and Senna treasure on crease

Senna mars black on outer corner and as liner

Chanel cils magique mascara in black

LIPS- Lip Fusion

Senna deminude liner

Senna lip laquer in bella

Thanks everyone!

-Janelle- I like that palette! It's like a neutral palette but the shades have some "pop" to them with the gold and peachiness. I have paradisco which is like that coral one and I pair it with mulch a lot which is like that brown one.

-Envy- Thanks Envy! I'll check those out. I've been tanning lately and will continue to so my color is going to change a lot. I'm thinking I'm going to get samples of the ones you mentioned and the ones in the level 4 shades. Do you like the eye shadows?

Lizzy-I do like the shadows alot, but you have to remember it's mineral makeup. It's much more natural than other brands. So the pigment won't be as much as you're used to with MAC, but it's buildable. I love using a wet application with them too. They have great colors and I especially like the pure hues. You can use them as shadow, blush, or on your lips with gloss or just with liner.

I use a mix with the Glissade and the Pure cover in level 3 now, but when I tan I use a mix with the level 4 as well.
