FOTD - good old favorites

Every time I wear Nars Sheer Glow, I wonder why I trying any other foundation, as it makes my skin look just so perfect. (I couldn't part with Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua, though, and  probably not with Diorskin Nude which has the best longevity of the trio).

Now that I'm fake-tanned to celebrate the sunny week we're having, I'm wearing Santa Fe instead of Gobi.

The eye look is also the resurrection of an old favorite combo: Mac paintpots in Rubenesque and Coral Crepe; I added a bit of UD 24/7 in Bourbon, and done!
On the cheeks: Dior Aurora and Nars Orgasm
On the lips: the fuchsia Guerlain Rouge G Serie Noire from this Spring (who's too sheer for my liking in general but good enough for today)

Other than that, I'm due a brow trim and I seriously need more sleep - it's only Tuesday!


  1. Gorgeous skin! I've heard very mixed things about Sheer Glow, but it certainly looks amazing on you :)

  2. It's funny that's tan for you. You're like my mom. She's so fair and she gets a drop of color and is tan. The reason I say it's funny is because I get dark as hell. To the point where I look dirty. I pretty much stop wearing makeup at that point. Maybe a tinted moisturizer. Everything is already starting to look a little pink. Okay, at the end of the summer, I'll post some pictures of myself. I'm already getting dark. And soon, my friends and I are going to start going to the pool. You'll see why when I first met A.P. he blurted out, "You're a lot darker than the photo." Cuz you know, he'd only seen a pic of me. : O )

    BTW...your skin looks amazing!

  3. You look great with warm peachy shades on your eyes, so fresh and lovely :)

  4. @ dempss01 : your mileage may vary, as always with foundations :)

    @ Marty: ha! that's the thing with us pale girls, we go up 3 shades and we still look sickly pale LOL. And thank you :-)

    @Rocaille: thanks dear :)


I love getting comments, thanks for sharing your thoughts!
