I'm back with another "Face of the Day" for you all!
This look makeup look started with the eyes. I wanted to use a shadow that I hadn't used in a while. While I do use MAC "Satin Taupe" quite often, I typically only use it in the crease. However, it's really such an amazing all over lid colour! It has the ability to catch the light in such a way that it looks like several different shades all in one! A fantastic multipurpose shade and I would HIGHLY recommend it if you're looking to pick up a MAC eyeshadow.
Inspired by the smokey simplicity of my eyes, I chose to pair this look with a red lip. Normally I would think this lip too dark for summer, but it has been raining all day long (seriously, I'm waiting to see someone float down the street in a boat) and the darkness of this lip made me feel cozy. I have several reds in my collection and today I chose Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss "11"
For my cheeks I used MAC blush in "Well Dressed" and highlighted my cheekbones and inner eyes with Benifit High Beam. I opted to skip foundation and went for some Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer under my eyes and around my nose.
I thought it would be fun to throw in a little "Outfit of the Day" along with this post, so I snapped a few quick pictures while I was at work. Sorry for the quality, iPhones can only do so much. Like I said it was a rainy day, so I went for something cozy. I really LOVE this feather pattern peasant top. I always feel awesome when I wear it. Then just some simple black skinny jeans from AE and black flats.Working girl!
Now if you'll excuse me I must run! J just came home and now we're off to the pub for drinks with friends!
Love you all,
