Face of the day: Frosty 90's Lips?

Ok, so no, I did not wear frosty 90's lipstick today. It just looks like that in the photo above, probably because of the flash on the camera? I guess this is what I get for trying to venture away from red and bright fuschia lipsticks. 

Being a glasses wearer, I tend to focus on making my lips stand out, as my eye makeup often gets lost behind my giant, thick framed glasses. However, when I do bother with my eyes, it's usually limited to a few products. A MAC paint pot as a base, a lighter, shimmery shade all over the lid, and a darker, bronzey shadow in the crease. I blend that slightly above the crease, so it's actually visible over the fat flaps I've got for eyelids. Then, I use a MAC 219 brush to draw a precise line in an attempt to create some shape to my eye. I blend the edges of the crease shadow with a matte, vanilla shade, add some mascara and blush, et voila. A simple, presentable look. Nothing too glamorous. Just something to get me out the door looking polished (kind of?) and put together.

Products used:
Face: Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation in the shade made for corpses|Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer | Chanel Poudre Universelle | MAC Pink Swoon Blush | (I may or may not have splotched a little bit of Benefit's Hoola Bronzer in various places on my face to make myself appear alive)

Eyes: MAC Groundwork Paint Pot | MAC Naked Lunch Eyeshadow | Nars Fez Eyeshadow | Benefit They're Real Mascara

Lips: MAC Outrageously Fun


  1. So pretty, Amber! That lipstick looks good on you. I love how you did your eyes, a simple, subtle everyday look. Believe it or not, I have no idea how to put on make-up (other than eyeliner and mascara), so I will definitely try this simple look.
