Face Off....

I have had a lot of emails asking what makeup do I use…………..
I have a trunk of goodies…….. however……….
Below I have emptied my ‘everyday’ make-up bag and let out my little secrets……
I tend to stick with the ‘angels’ I know……….
I prefer a very ‘natural look’………as less is more.
 For coverage I use Nars tinted moisturizer and bronzer….. you can build up the color with the moisturizer depending on temperature and event. If it is very warm out I don’t use as much but if it is cool out and if I am going to an evening event then I go a little heavier along side Nars concealer…. Nars has the best bronzer and the pigment in the eye shadow is rich, has depth and ‘staying’ power. In the evening I use the eye shadow stick and eye palette to create a smoky eye……. There is no beating Dior mascara…….. it’s the absolute best! ……. And for liner Avon Gel Liner is super black and stays put even in the most heated environments. For color on my cheeks I use Bobbi Brown Rouge color pot with a little bit of Illamasqua highlighter. ………. For my brows I use Mac to highlight my brow bone for day and Highbeam from Benefit for night……… Highbeam is also nice in the day for highlighting cheek bones…
By Terry Rose balm for lips is not cheap but the pot lasts forever….. I wear this all the time and it creates a lovely base for lipstick …….. which I don’t often wear but if I do I wear it I use Nars Walkyrie Matt lip pencil….. it is a browny/pinky color that look quite natural….. or Bobbi Brown color pot in Milk Chocolate
My tools are Laura Mercier and Mac Brushes…. And my fingers…. As this creates a more natural finish...
When I don’t have color on my nails I always use Dior Nail Glow…… it gives a natural healthy looking pinky glow to the nail bed and all through the day I slather hand balm from & other stories…….. It smells divine and keeps my hands smooth.
