One of my favorite things to buy when I am able is makeup. I don’t wear much makeup these days, as I am home with only the dog to keep me company and have no real reason to doll up on her account. When I do get the opportunity to try out a new look I usually like to try a set. It’s one stop shopping for your entire face and takes all the guess-work out of color coordination. This year for Christmas I added a few new sets to my wish list and my wonderful mother sent me one of my requests.
Over the next three posts I am going to demonstrate the three looks of this collection and give you my opinion of the product as a whole.
Today is look one, Natural Beauty. The eye shades from left to right in the picture above top row are Rapture, La Cage and Silk Stockings. The cheek color is called Wanna Play? and the lip gloss is named Give It Up.
For this look you begin by applying Silk Stockings to the lid.
As you can see this look is very natural, as claimed in its title. It is understated and simple and would work for a daytime or work look.
The colors are all mostly shimmering so if you are going to be outside you will have a bit of glow coming from your cheeks and eyes and the colors all seem to have good staying power, especially with my eye primer applied. The only negative note is that the lip gloss is pretty sticky and doesn’t last very long. When I wear this look I hardly ever add the lip gloss just because I don’t like the feel of it, but my lips have so much natural pink pigment that I don’t wear much lipstick to begin with.
Overall the first set works well and can be worn for at least eight hours without much touch up, as long as you aren’t sweating profusely, but that is the same for most makeups. It took about fifteen minutes to apply and the instructions we simple enough for even a makeup novice to follow.
Join me again on my next post for look number two, Feminine Flirty.
