Face of the Day: August 1, 2011

Hi Everyone! :)

Just wanted to start off with a quick Face of the Day post. For those of you who are new to these kinds posts, it is a picture of a look that I've created on that day and the products used to create it.

Today's look is actually quite out of my comfort zone, but I decided that it's always important to start off with a bang (in this case being a bold lip) ;)

To start off, the products -

Skincare ie. Prep (I'll only tend to show this if something has changed or something exciting has been introduced to my routine):
- Cetaphil Cleanser
- Olay Regenerist Regenerating Serum (Fragrance Free)
- Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream
- Vasanti Eye Wonder
- NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow

- Make Up Forever Mat Velvet + in 55
- Bobbi Brown Corrector in Medium to Dark Bisque
- Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer in Cream (Light 4-5)
- Chanel Bronze Universal
- Joe Fresh Cream Blush in Bloom

- NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base (on eyelids and under eyes)
- Milani Liquif ' Eye in 01 Black
- Almay One Coat Nourishing Mascara Triple Effect in Very Black

- NYX Lipliner in Dolly Pink (filled in lips with this lipliner)
- MAC Lip Gelee in Shift to Pink (small dab on the center of lips)

Quick Tip :) : You'll notice that I use primer on my eyelids and under eyes. This is a good way for those of you that have issues with your under-eye concealer lasting throughout the day. NARS is my favorite but you can use any of your eyeshadow primers in the same way. I notice that for me, this prevents creasing and wearing away of my concealer.

This is a classic winged liner with bold lip look. Of course the bold lip had to be created with my favorite color, pink :) I hope you liked it!

Upcoming will be some review posts that I had originally written for my account on (link to my LUUUX page: Also, I'll be doing a summer favorites post and I will be happy to do more in depth reviews of those products if they are requested.

    I love your bold strong eyebrows, they remind me so much of the beautiful and talented late Elizabeth Taylor. And check out your hot lips!

    How are you liking the MUFE Mat Velvet Foundation? I have heard many good reviews and raves about it. I have the MUFE HD in #110 and really like it. When I was at IMATS I picked up another one in a diff #115. Unfortunately there was no more of the Mat Velvet. Next year we should go to the IMATS 2012 together so that I have someone to do some major damage with kekeke ^_^
