FotWeekend- Two Evening Looks

Two very simple evening looks from the weekend. One focuses on the eyes, the other on the lips. I could have named them "makeup looks for when the husband is waiting", since I did both rather quickly, with said husband reminding me that traffic to the city is getting worse by the minutes.

Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer (I usually have a sample or three, and like it very much)
Laura Mercier Natural Radiance Tinted Moisturizer- Illuminating. This time the base didn't oxidize, and I really liked the finish.
NARS Creamy Concealer (Honey. A frequent repurchase)
Guerlain Meteorites pressed powder

I decided to find a use to Rouge Bunny Rouge Eyes Wide Open Brightening Liner Duo, which is probably the only RBR product I never liked. I used the white side as a base for my eye makeup and it worked alright, but definitely wasn't as long-lasting as a real primer or a high quality cream eye shadow. Time to let this one go.
Bobbi Brown Cement eye shadow in the crease, a random and unlabeled shimmery beige on the lid, and Kjaer Weis eye shadow in Divine on top and bottom lashlines.
Lancome Artliner in Navy.
Lancôme Drama Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner in  Minuit on waterline.
Rilastil mascara.

NARS Goulue blush

Shiseido Shimmering Rouge RS308 Iron Maiden (I'm very happy it wasn't a limited edition).

Other Stuff
Vintage earrings. These ones are a mid-century Norwegian design (sterling and enamel), which is among my favorites.
Top by DVF
Perfume: Serge Lutens L'Orpheline.

Smashbox oil primer
YSL Touche Eclat (B50 Honey)
Cle de Peau concealer
Cle de Peau powder

Wet'n'Wild Fergie Primer (it was repackaged recently as part of the regular WnW line, and I've compared the ingredient lists- they're the same. I still have several backups of the old one, though).
Burberry Midnight Brown eye shadow
Youngblood eyeliner pen in Marron
Guerlain Maxi-Lash mascara

Laura Mercier Cheek Veil from the Bonne Mine palette. I used the darkest one and blended it into total sheerness. Any reddish cream blush will do if you missed out on the re-release of the palette (I suspect they'll keep bringing it back every once in a while).

NARS Cruella lip crayon.

Other Stuff
Vintage earring (an antique store find)
Top: Rebecca Taylor (Fall 2015)
SotD: Serge Lutens MKK


  1. Those green earrings look stunning on you! Cruella with that white top also look fantastic.

  2. Love the second look (the one with the red lip).

  3. Really love both of the lipsticks. MKK is an absolutely perfect choice with Cruella. I would really enjoy a site that paired perfumes with particular lipsticks or eye shadows. Fascinating possibilities. Always enjoy seeing your scent choices for your FOTD posts.
    Those green earrings are gorgeous.
