NY 2009

I hope everyone had a fabulous and wonderful New Year's! This look is basically a recreation of a look I wore to a wedding last year except I was using Ulta Minerals. I wasn't all that thrilled with the Ulta Minerals so I did a lot of layering of similar colors since we were running late and I did not feel like washing my face and starting over.  Hence the 1000 many shadows.





On eyes:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Paint Pot in Quite Natural (entire eye)
Ulta Minerals in Smoke (lid)
Lancôme Color Design in Aspen Nights (lid)
Maybelline Eye Enhancer in Brown Smolder (crease – used to soften lid color lines)
Ulta Mineral in Midnight (outer corner and crease)
NYX Eyeshadow Trio in Lake Moss Blue Shadow (outer corner and crease)
MAC Carbon (outer corner and outer crease)
Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer in Dark 3 (highlight)
Jane Pure Mineral Gel Eyeliner in Black (lash line)
Lancôme Color Design Liner in Sparkle Black (waterline)
Lancôme Oscillation Power Booster (primer)
Lancôme Defincils Mascara in Deep Black
Max Factor Volume Couture in Rich Black

Face and Lips:
Skin Prep Nourshing Foundation Primer and Anti-Aging Serum
Bare Minerals Deepest Deep mixed with Borghese Hydro-Minerali Crème Finish Makeup in Espresso (used as concealer under eyes and on chin)
Valana Minerals Foundation in Amber Dream (used to set concealer)
MAC Fix+ Rose
MAC Mineralize Blush in Gleeful
MAC Lipglass in Peroxide

 I also did my friends eyes.  She did her own face and used her own mascara and liner.




On eyes:
Two Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC Paint Pot in Quite Natural (entire eye)
Lancôme Golden Sunrise (lid)
Maybelline Eye Enhancer in Brown Smolder (crease – used to soften lid color lines)
MAC Dark Devotion (outer corner and crease)
Sephora Giraffe Eye Shadow Palette Brown (outer corner and crease)
Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer in Dark 3 (highlight)
Jane Pure Mineral Gel Eyeliner in Black (lash line)

Happy new year!
Benefit Bare Minerals, it is primarily for the reason that it is made used for all skin types and is especially proper for super sensitive skin
