I had a perfume event as a prelude to a mid-week date night with the Blond. I knew what I was going to wear and actually planned my makeup accordingly. Usually when wearing blue one is advised to choose warm peachy colors, but a) I look awful in them, and b) the exact shade my dress was between ultramarine and a very very blue violet, so the contrast would have been overwhelming. Instead, I chose golds and browns in shimmer and matte and muted warm colors everywhere else.
Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer.
Armani Maestro Glow Foundation (5.5)
Laura Mercier Secret Concealer #2 mixed with Secret Camouflage SC-3 applied with a tiny precision brush when needed (not under the eyes. I left that area alone).
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder.
All the Laura Mercier products are staples that I reach for (and repurchase) again and again, knowing that they will perform with no glitches.
Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eye Primer. It's the only Urban Decay Primer I really like and keep buying.
Four eye shadows from two Viseart palettes. From the Neutral Matte: the two on the far right in both the middle and the bottom rows. From Paris Nude the two middle colors in the middle row. A lot of blending happened. Is anyone interested in swatches of the other Viseart palettes I have? I never posted about this Paris one, Dark Matte, or Sultry Muse.
TonyMoly gel eyeliner in black (a Korean brand, bought on amazon). No difference than any other decent gel eyeliner, but price is good.
Diorshow mascara primer and mascara.
MAC Teddy on the waterline.
There's also something in my brows, but I didn't write down the specifics and have forgotten what I used. Sorry.
MAC Fleur Power blush. A classic no-brainer color.
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lip liner (talking about a no-brainer).
MAC Velvet Teddy lipstick mixed with some lip balm pressed into the lips with a brush.
MAC Creamsheen Lipglass in Delight (because I was still feeling that Velvet Teddy is too dry).
The dress is from J. Crew, and since it has an elaborate neckline (there are laces involved), I skipped accessories or jewelry other than a massive cocktail ring.
SotEvening was JAR Diamond Water. It went well with my shoes.
