I thought this would be fun! I love to look through magazines and see what everyone has on.. let's do it!

<img src="http://home.comcast.net/~kristardesign/DSCF0016_6.jpg"></img>

This morning during our "Rainy Day Facials Event", I took this picture with my digi-cam, I was bored to death because the store was empty and all of us girls decided to have a little fun.

Let's see here:

Today I started off with the Lightest color of Biotherm's tinted moisturizer.

My lovely Dream Matte Mousse from Maybelline.

Get Even 01 Powder from Benefit.

I dusted on with a big brush: Prestige XXL Bronzer and this shimmer palette from the Body Shop.

Since my hair is now blue and some strange red color, I have to stick with certain colors of eye shadow and lipstick:

Benefit Lemon-Aid base for the eyes.

Pat with fingertips, Big Kahuna creme shadow from Benefit.

Dusted over the top, loose pigment shadows "Show Offs" in Bambi, by Benefit.

In the crease, which you can't really see, I put on a dark purple color from the Black Orchid collection of Benefit.

Filled in my very light eyebrows with Benefit Brow Zing wax/powder filling kit in #4, the darkest color. Right below the eye brows to highlight, I drew a line with our concealer stick " It Stick" from Benefit and blended well with fingertip.

My lashes were coated with one coat of Estee Lauder's MagnaScopic black mascara. Lined with Benefit's Babe-Cakes liquid cake liner in black, lined on the water line with Benefit's Onyx black pencil liner.

For the cheeks, I dusted on an old Victoria's Secret blush that they discontinued. Poo.

The lips: Lined with Benefit's Gypsy liner (red/brown), filled in with MAC's Tanarama lipstick (beige shimmer) and glossed with NYX $2.99 gloss in Lollypop (orange frost).

Earrings by Macy's, flower by Marc Jacobs.

I am still catching onto this What is "lippy" ? hahaha.. you mean my liner going a bit above the top lip? I dunno what you mean. My lips are really uneven, I have a scar on my lip from a dog bite and a ridge that goes around my lip that is not lip colored.. so I just fill it with the liner.

Wow! You look radiant!

I love Bambi! I haven't tried it over Big Kahuna, though.

Is your hair blue & red on purpose; was it an accident?

You look awesome, Scarlette! I would post pics, but I'm looking rather yucky since I'm sick


You just look so radiant, and I love the whole look overall. I think I have officially added a few things to my wishlist, LOL

Wow, that is a great look & you're so pretty. I absolutely love the cheeks.. You said that particular blush was discontinued (don't u just hate when companies do that?) Anyway, can you recommend another blush that would be quite similiar to it? I'd love to achieve that look

haha.. yea, my hair is dyed blue on the roots. I am having my hair girl re-bleach my hair again so we can add more blue to the bangs and underneath my hair.

The blush Victoria's Secret discontinued was one of a kind.. from the "Objects of Desire" collection it was called Pink Sapphire. The only thing I can say compares to it is the Benefit blush called Take a Picture, It will Last Longer. You can try the Vic. Secret Mosaic Pink blush, but I really don't think it compares to that original color.

Those are my own eyelashes, I use the Magnascopic mascara from Estee and I love it.

I've tried Magnascopic aswell before but didn't like it.. I think it's fab for night time wear though as it's very dramatic.

hehe.. well I know this sounds gross, but my Magnascopic is a year old. I like my mascara aged like my wine. HA! I let it sit around for a while before I started using it again and I love the texture now~! It goes on nice and thick, not clumpy.

Interesting Scarlete! Do you not open it for a few months or do you open it & use it away for a year? I don't think i could do that because i heard you're supposed to throw mascara's away 3-6 months after you open them because of bacteria

I also wish the Magnascope's brush was a little thicker... I usually use the Maybelline Volum' Express Turbo - and I love the big fat brush... those skinny wands don't seem to get enough on there.... Even the demo wand I use to comb my lashes out is thick... luv it LOL

Well, I use my Magnascopic mascara on and off for a while. I think I will purchase a new one soon because it's been a year and I guess there is bacteria or whatever, but c'mon, everything supposedly has bacteria in it anyway after you use it on your mouth or put it near your eye, I've never had eye problems before using mascara that long. The only problems I have is with fiber glass based waterproof mascaras which make my eyes itch to death.

The Benefit Bad Gal lash has a HUGE brush if you like those big brushes. It's so big that it makes my customers laugh. Size matters! hahah
