What I’m Wearing

Wednesday, May 4, 2011


On Monday, I met with Carmindy (yup, she really is that gorgeous and nice!), and as we were chatting, she suggested that I try using  peachy-pink/coral tones for my makeup. Now, if Carmindy says that, it’s gotta be true! She is the expert.

I took her advice and went though my piles (and piles) of beauty products, looking for said shades. It’s kinda hard to see what I have on my eyes, due to super-droopy lids, but I think you can get an idea.

What do you think?

Here is what I am wearing today:

Mary Kay TimeWise Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation in Ivory 1.

M.A.C Prep+Prime Highlighter in Light Boost (under eyes).

M.A.C Prep+Prime Highlighter in Radiant Rose (top of cheek bones, brow bones and inner corner of eyes).

Quo Beauty Bliss Colour Collection was used for eyes and cheeks (this palette is AMAZING)

TouchBack BrowMarker in Auburn

Guerlain Le 2 de Guerlain Volumizing Mascara in Black

Tarte Cosmetics LipSurgence Natural Lip Luster in Achiote

I really like the lipstick color, but I think your cheeks are a little too colorful. Sorry, I hope that doesn’t offend you.

C-K, I am totally NOT offended! I appreciate your honest feedback.

Thanks, Ali! Now that I’m 40, it’s time to try new things…and makeup!
