To be honest, I was dreading this Makeup Monday only a little bit because I felt like I was running out of options. I mean, my makeup collection is pretty minuscule, so what the hell could I come up with? And, seriously, we all love lipsticks, but how many more lip looks could anyone stand?
Thankfully I came across Satin Taupe!
This shadow is all sorts of A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Taupe is usually a miss for me, but Satin Taupe really works. It’s, well, taupe, but with silver shimmer which adds a lot of depth to the colour that it can be worn alone all over the lid.
Here’s the rest of what I wore:
Cargo Tinted Moisturizer in Nude
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Warm Natural
Chanel Poudre Universelle in Rose Merveille (to set)
Benefit Brow Zings in Dark
Benefit Cosmetics Creaseless Cream Shadow in R.S.V.P (worn as the base)
MAC Eye Kohl in Phone Number
MAC Frost Shadow in Satin Taupe (all over lid)
MAC Matte² Shadow in Fig. 1 (worn on outer lid)
MAC Velvet Shadow in Black Tied (used to line upper lids and smudged across bottom lids)
Bare Escentuals Eyeshadow in Vanilla Sugar (as highlighter)
Benefit Bad Gal Mascara
Revlon Matte 001 Lipstick
MAC Amplified Lipstick in Coral Polyp (patted on top of Revlon 001 for a little bit of colour)
MAC Sheertone Blush in Peaches (applied sparingly)
Bare Escentuals bareMinerals All-Over Face Color in Clear Radiance (applied to tops of cheekbones)
Holy. Crap. I don’t think I’ve used that much makeup for one look in a LONG time! I really have to step up my eye makeup game.
