Of course while Nunu and Sheila were here I picked up a few new things. Most of the time I buy my makeup on my own, but it’s fun to have someone with you to ask opinions about (i.e. Does this colour look nice to you? on me?). I picked up two products which I absolutely adore (on their own, and together) and have spent the last 3 days playing with (and being vain, and taking pictures of the results). Plus the looks cumulatively reminded me of cherry blossoms which are one of my most favourite things in the world (obviously).
That is pretty much the only shot I remembered to take with my eyes semi-closed so you could see the makeup! My bad XD;
I’ll admit that I am very gullible and easy to talk into buying at makeup counters, but after swatching this shadow 4 separate times I finally caved and purchased it on my last day with Sheila and Nunu, and with Miss Eva (who had been with me the last time I swatched it!). Fauve is a lovely purple-taupe with fine shimmer – LOVE. I couldn’t think of anything in my stash that was similar (and I have a LOT of eyeshadow) and the shadow was soft, pigmented, and very easy to blend. In the following FOTDs I applied it over a base with a MAC217.
I’m still also in love with my ADDICTION eyeshadows so I used them in these looks as well!
Face: Armani Face Fabric #3, Armani Luminous Silk Powder #5.5
Cheeks: MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder
Eyes: UDPP, Mac Bare Study Paint Pot, Chanel Fauve, ADDICTION Keshi, K-Palette, Diorshow Blackout, UD 24/7 Zero, Anastasia Espresso Brow Gel
Lips: Dior Serum de Rouge 640
My second try involves the second item I’m totally in love with, but as we’re still talking about Fauve, I’ll put the product picture up after 🙂
