I went to the wedding of my husband’s nephew yesterday – it rained so it was moved indoors, but the venue was this gorgeous rustic country setting and so beautiful and cozy. I actually wore the Little Black Dress I eloped in a few months ago (love this thing) with a purple cardigan to jazz up a grey day, along with a vintage aurora borealis brooch that belonged to my grandmother. Aw! I coordinated some purple makeup and was good to go.
When the weather starts to change, I start to change up my makeup a bit. I start to wear more dramatic lip colors and often reach for plums, berries, burgundies, and wines. MAC Rebel is a lipstick in their permanent collection that is perfect for when the days just start getting shorter and the leaves are just starting to drop.
Face: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer on t-zone (this is an experiment to see if this behaves badly with my foundation, which is water based), MAC Face and Body Foundation (2/3 N1 mixed with 1/3 White), NYX HD Concealer in Porcelain around nose and under eyes (I am now rationing my NARS concealer, ha!), MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NC15 on random pigmented spots, face set with Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and a puff to set and mattify, NYX HD Blush in Taupe to contour, MAC Mineralized Blush in Gentle, no highlight needed with dewy foundation and shimmery blush.
EYES: Urban Decay Primer Potion, MAC eye shadows in Shroom and Satin Taupe, L’Oreal Super Slim liquid liner black, Cover Girl Clump Crusher mascara black (I could not use Too Faced Better Than Sex for another day….ugh…more on that later), It Cosmetics Brow Power pencil
LIPS: NYX Lip Liner in Deep Purple, MAC lipstick in Rebel
WOW this lighting washes me out. We got new light bulbs. Not sure I’m a fan!
