A "Let's Try Not to Melt" FotD

I've been all about simple looks using a moderate amount of product that can survive the revolving door between the piping hot soup outside and the instant freeze of air conditioned spaces. Doing all that while maintaining a happy supple skin is quite a task. This look survived at least six hours of activity before I washed it all off and changed into kitten feeding gear.

Smashbox oil primer. This one has  become a staple and I will repurchase when it's gone.
Edward Bess Compact Foudation 03 Nude. I've gone through too many to count.
NARS Creamy Concealer in Custard to even out areas under the eyes (lack of sleep) and around the nose (allergies).
Tom Ford stick foundation in Natural 5, dabbed with a mini brush for spot concealing. I didn't use enough of that, to be honest.Color is a good match, and I've always loved using stick foundation as concealers (I used to have a precious staple from Estee Lauder).
Rouge Bunny Rouge powder

Urban Decay Anti-Aging eye primer
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Copper. It came with a Sephora Bronze Favorite Kit that sold out before I had the chance to even take photos. The Caviar stick itself is available individually at Nordstrom.
From Lorac Pro3 palette I used Clay in the crease and to create my usual shape.
Stila Stay All Day eyeliner in Black
Guerlain Maxi Lash Curl Sculpting Mascara.

Clinique Just Browsing 03 Deep Brown. It might be my favorite product in this category due to color, ease of application, performance, and longevity.

Milani Coralina baked blush.  The photos wash it out, but it looks pleasant to the naked  eye.

Colourpop Fric'n'Frack pencil and Ultra Satin Lip. I like the color more than the texture. I'm old. I prefer real lipsticks.

Other Stuff
SotD: Rainmaker by En Voyage. It's become my constant companion, making it harder and harder to review. It's my second ski nowadays.
Earrings: vintage. Thank you dear Lawrence (and Rosa de Gata).
Dress by Norma Kamali (current collection)
Denim jacket by Current/Elliott


  1. Love the lip color. And just wanted to say how much I appreciate the photos and videos on Jersey Cats. I think your comment on the latest photos that it doesn't get any more adorable, pretty much works for all of the photos and videos. Totally, completely adorable. Crazy busy morning here, but I actually took time out and sat and watched a couple of the videos just to sort of get my mind off of the incredible Brexit shock and focus on their heart melting perfection (especially Gloria with her bottle - to die for sweetness). Brexit? What Brexit?

  2. I got such a chuckle out of that "Let's try not to melt" :-) If ever there were an appropriate title for a FOTD, that's got to be it. Our temps have been 100+ the past few days. We got cooler yesterday (90+) but are expected to bounce up into the triple digits again this weekend. The Dog Days of summer are upon us and it is not even August yet. The sudden shift in weather here has us all scrambling for heat proof looks.
