Natural/Neutral

I haven't been keeping up with this blog. I've been dabbling in my makeup here and there but I always forget to update this. School has been keeping me busy. Ironically, I have a bunch of homework/studying/projects I should have been doing, instead I was playing with makeup. Excuse the frizzy hair and the bummy attire. :]
I decided to come up with a look I would feel confident wearing to class ... if only I wake up early enough to execute it. LOL Nonetheless, here is what I came up with.

FACE:
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer
MAC Studio Tech "NC43"
MAC Blot Powder "Dark"
MAC Blushcreme "Lilicent"
MAC Blush "Sunbasque"
Evian Eau Minerale Naturelle

EYES:
UDPP
MAC Ricepaper e/s
MAC Tete-A-Tint e/s
MAC Museum Bronze Pigment
Coastal Scents "A10"
MAC Powerpoint Pencil "Engravaed"

LIPS:
MAC Prep + Prime Lip
MAC "3N" l/s
Stila Lip Glaze "Vanilla"

I want to be able to do the "Egyptian/Cat" eyeliner near my tearducks. No such luck. :

Maui decided to come out and play with Mama.


Me & my babies.

The Laura Mercier was a sample I got from making an online purchase from Sephora. I like it way better than my Smashbox Color Correcting Primer. First off, it's so silky and smooth. I feel Smashbox is a bit chalky and grainy. I don't know, maybe it's just me. I am contemplating whether or not I should finish my Smashbox before spluring on a $30.00 tube of that stuff. Hmm, what to do, what to do?

I am tempted to purchase The Brush Guard. I don't see it as a necessity, since I have been able to wash my brushes and travel fine WITHOUT it so far ... so I don't see why I would need it now. Err, fighting temptations.
Hope you ladies had a joyous Easter & enjoy your week! :]
