FOTD with Tarte and Giorgio Armani

27 Apr

It’s the middle of the week, and cloudy yet again. This is seriously the longest streak of gloomy weather ever. Record rain and all of these clouds has made life positively dull. But sun is in the forecast soon! Hooray!

Meanwhile, I took some products for a spin today, and here is what I ended up putting together to brighten this otherwise gloomy day!

Today's FOTD!

Product Rundown:



  • UD Primer Potion (original)
  • Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill #8- Champagne all over lid
  • Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill #4- Pulp Fiction Blended into crease, used as liner on upper lashline, blended into outer part of lower lashline
  • Stila Kajal liner in Topaz for waterline
  • UD 24-7 liner in Perversion for tightlining
  • Givenchy Phenomen’eyes Effet mascara in Extension Black
  • Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in Black


  • MAC Naked lip pencil
  • MAC Lovelorn Lipstick
  • EOS lip balm (hate it, but I am trying to use it up!!)

So far, the Eyes to Kill Intense shadows are amazing! I love the pigmentation and consistency of them. Full review coming soon, but I bet in the mean time Khaki Pulse shows up at my doorstep 😉 Also making it’s debut in this FOTD but I have been using for about two weeks now is the Givenchy mascara. This is by far the best mascara I have ever used. It was recommended in a video (several in fact) by GossMakeupArtist on Youtube. Very glad I took the plunge and picked it up. Full review coming on that item as well!

You will notice I mixed several products to make my “foundation” and have been using this same combo for awhile. I really like the oil control the Tarte foundation gives me, but it’s getting to be a bit thick for this time of year. So I add a bit of tinted moisturizer and a bit of highlighter to it and I am set. I spritz my foundation brush once with Fix+ and I really like the effect this gives my foundation and the added longevity it gives my face makeup as a whole.

How have you been changing up your foundation routine? Have you found something that really works for this transition period into summer?


Spring FOTD With Chanel

12 Apr

Good Afternoon ladies! Happy Tuesday to you all! Today, a spring FOTD featuring Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy (recommended by Jessica from Getting Cheeky, thanks girl!) I tried out another shade (Evasion) and it totally took my lips down for the count. But, I heard from another Jessica from Don’t Call Me Jessie that Evasion did not bother her lips! It is a rather lovely peachy-nude shade, and if it did not kill my lips, I would love to own it!

I love the shine this lipstick has and this color is so perfect. I didn’t think it was at first in the store, because in that lighting it looked like a whole bunch of nothin’ on my lips. In natural light it looks so beautiful.

Ahh! Sunday afternoons, my favorite time of the week, perfect for relaxing in your yoga pants all day, ya dig? 😉 To brighten up the gloomy weather we are having today I though I’d share my FOTD from yesterday, using all Peach colors! Yum!

Shopping FOTD with MAC Primary Yellow!

28 Mar

Happy Monday all! Did you enjoy your weekend? I know mine went zooming by. I did get the chance to go shopping this weekend, and of course I visited my two favorite places, Sephora and MAC. I will be sharing the results of that over the coming weeks as I have opportunity to test the new things I have. Swatches of some new MAC lipsticks (new to me) will be coming this week as well!  Anyhow, I wanted to give my MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in Primary Yellow a whirl since I have been seeing yellow on the eyes in EVERY magazine I pick up! Here are the results:

FOTD with MAC Primary Yellow!

  • Guerlain Meteorites Perles Primer
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Balancing Foundation- Medium
  • MAC Pro Longwear Concealer NW20 (undereye area)
  • MAC MSF Natural Medium Plus
  • UD Cream Highlight Wicked (cheekbones)
  • MAC Ripe Peach Blush
  • Too Faced Aqua Bunny Bronzer


  • UD Primer Potion- original
  • MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in Primary Yellow
  • MAC Chrome Yellow Eyeshadow (patted over Primary Yellow to set)
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Eyeshadow in Shimmering Sand (for texture, buffed above Primary Yellow to brow bone.
  • Stila Smudge Pot in Black
  • UD 24-7 liner in Perversion (tightline and half of waterline)

I cannot tell how many compliments at the MAC counter I got, as well as at Ulta and Sephora. Everyone LOVED the yellow. I am so glad that I purchased it because it really doesn’t look so harsh with the right complimenting makeup. What do you think? Would you sport the yellow liner trend?
