I haven't done one of those in a while because of my skin acting up, but finally got the courage to undig my crappy camera... Yesterday's look was slightly inspired by Leighton Mesteer's character in the Gossip Girl series which I'm currently watching - late, I know! I was going out in the evening but otherwise had a pretty lazy day, so it was fun to play with my stash a bit. Here's what I came up with:
Products used (I'm skipping the face part as it's always the same stuff):
Miss Sporty Mini Me eyeliner pencil in Grizzly (brown) as a base (determined to use it up!)
Annabelle 'So Foxy' (cool brown) on the lashline and blended up
MAC Patina eyeshadow on the centre of the lid and up
Matte black from the Sleek Storm palette on the lashline and slightly flicked up in the corners
Darker matte brown from the same palette through the brows
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese in the inner corners, on the browbone and lower waterline
MaxFactor 2000 Calories mascara
NYX Taupe blusher to contour
NYX Angel blusher on the apples of the cheeks
MAC Viva Glam IV Frost lipstick
Here's the close-up of eyes and lips:
I'm absolutely in love with this lipstick, the color is buildable plus it's a very versatile shade for me as it's just a tad darker than my natural lip color, I think it really suits any neutral eye make-up!
I went to see "Nine" by Rob Marshall yesterday with my mom and have to say that while I loved the imagery, cast and musical aspect of it, I was definitely not blown away by the plot. I really liked the atmosphere created and loved the song performed by Kate Hudson, which I feel is a bit like the whole film in a nutshell, i.e. illustrates how much Americans, and Hollywood especially, love Italian culture and spirit. Anyhow, I thought it would be interesting to see how it compares to the original movie by Fellini, which I'm ashamed to say I haven't seen yet.
Have you seen "Nine"? What was your favorite female character from the movie? And if you haven't, what is your favorite musical ever? I'd love to hear from you! xxx
