Please leave your response to the question in the comment section below. I’d love to hear from you!

Question: What has been your favorite makeup discovery so far this summer?

Mine has been Laura Mercier’s Caviar Eye stick in Amethyst.  I am beyond impressed with the formula and want to try out more shades! (Pictured below!)

I used the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette (Venus, Naked 2, Faint, and Crave) and an OCC lip tar in Vintage.

Step by step tutorial:

1. Put Venus all over your lid using a shader brush

2. Use a fluffy crease brush to put Naked 2 throughout your entire crease

3. Using a dense crease brush or a pencil brush, put Faint along the outer 1/3 of your lash line and the outer-v of your eye

4. Using a large blending brush, buff everything out so that there are no harsh lines

5. Use a small, dense brush (like a liner brush!) to put Crave lightly along the lash line.  Gently blend/smudge upward as you place Crave along the lash line to achieve a softer, smokier look.

6. Put Venus along the brow bone as a highlight.

7. Apply your choice of mascara (I used Maybelline’s The Falsies Flared)

8. Apply two thin coats of OCC’s Lip Tar in Vintage

9. Apply Milani’s Dolce Pink blush all over the apples of your cheeks and through your cheek bones.

10. Look fabulous while taking on your day (or night!).

The Questions:
(Copy and paste to answer below!)

  • If you could only have one blush to last through the end of your days, what would it be? 
  • Do you mix foundation colors?  
  • Do you get professional manicures, or do you do it yourself? 
  • Have you dyed or highlighted your hair? 

My Answers:

  • If you could only have one blush to last through the end of your days, what would it be? NARS’ Madly
  • Do you mix foundation colors?  No-I have a very good match with my Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua in BR-12 where I don’t feel the need to mix shades.  Also, I don’t really fluctuate in skin tone throughout the year so what works in winter works in summer.
  • Do you get professional manicures, or do you do it yourself?  I always do it myself.  I love the look of professional manicures but have just never done it.  My dad scarred me with stories about the possibilities of getting fungal infections from nail salons when I was younger so, I’ve strayed away my whole life.
  • Have you dyed or highlighted your hair? Never!  I like the color that I have and I think that my hair would be damaged very easily from the harsh dyes.  If I ever were to dye my hair, I think I would go darker brown (I like the Snow White look) or maybe a natural red shade.
