Taking requests

Just a quickie update everyone- It’s only been a pretty short time since I started blogging, so it’s a huge frickin’ deal to me to see that I already have some followers and people that comment!

After I saw the swatches of the new Le Blush Creme de Chanel over on The Non-Blonde, I just knew that I had to run out and buy Fantastic – this particular color was an unfilled position in my blush lineup, and Chanel’s take on it is absolutely gorgeous.

FOTD: Using Marc Jacobs eyeshadow in Tease

I haven’t seen many looks done with the new Marc Jacobs stuff yet, so here’s how my first use went! I realized after I took the photos that I got a little bit of mascara on my eyelid. Don’t worry, I fixed it before I left the house. On my face: Primers – Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector, NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base Foundation – Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation in Sand Concealers – Benefit Erase Paste and Kevyn Aucoin Sensual  ...
