FOTD: Twilight @ sunset

1 May
June 2010

If I look a little different in this FOTD, it’s because it was taken almost a year ago (yeah, I’ve been a junkie for a minute). It’s one of my favorites because I love the way the sunlight shines through my living room at sunset & because Twilight (by Ulta) is probably my favorite eyeshadow. It’s a metallic pewtery gray, neither too dark nor too light, so it looks good on a variety of skin tones. If you’d like to try it out, now’s a good time to buy. ALL ULTA BRAND cosmetics, brushes & beauty tools are on sale, BUY ONE GET ONE FREE until May 8th! I LOVE a good sale!!! And in case you’re wondering, I am not being paid to endorse this product, I genuinely like it.

Tip of the day: In this look I used black as a base for my shadow & by doing this you can create a more sultry look, even if you’re not using colors that are particularly dark. When used underneath a shimmery or metallic shadow, a black base will enhance sheen… when used in concert with a jewel toned shadow, a black base gives more depth.

PRIMER: Urban Decay e/s primer potion

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean

SHADOW: I used Ulta single e/s in Twilight on the inner two-thirds of my lower eyelid, blue from the CoverGirl Tropical Fusion e/s palette to accentuate my crease & outer v & pressed powder (see below) on my upper lid & all the way up to my browbone. After that I went back in & added champagne from the CoverGirl Shimmering Sands trio to highlight my tearducts.

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I lined my waterline with WetnWild Eyeliner Pencil in Black.

LIPS: Carmex

FACE: L’Oreal True Match pressed powder in Nut Brown (C7)

    The lighting in this pic is hot!! I wish I had the time and patience to do my makeup like yours every morning. Waking up at 4:30 to get two people ready and out the door by 6:15 is more than I can handle right now! 😦
