FOTD #2 (07.26.13.0)

I'm back with another "Face of the Day" for you all!

This look makeup look started with the eyes. I wanted to use a shadow that I hadn't used in a while. While I do use MAC "Satin Taupe" quite often, I typically only use it in the crease. However, it's really such an amazing all over lid colour! It has the ability to catch the light in such a way that it looks like several different shades all in one! A fantastic multipurpose shade and I would HIGHLY recommend it if you're looking to pick up a MAC eyeshadow. 



Inspired by the smokey simplicity of my eyes, I chose to pair this look with a red lip. Normally I would think this lip too dark for summer, but it has been raining all day long (seriously, I'm waiting to see someone float down the street in a boat) and the darkness of this lip made me feel cozy. I have several reds in my collection and today I chose Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Moss "11"


 For my cheeks I used MAC blush in "Well Dressed" and highlighted my cheekbones and inner eyes with Benifit High Beam. I opted to skip foundation and went for some Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer under my eyes and around my nose.


I thought it would be fun to throw in a little "Outfit of the Day" along with this post, so I snapped a few quick pictures while I was at work. Sorry for the quality, iPhones can only do so much. Like I said it was a rainy day, so I went for something cozy. I really LOVE this feather pattern peasant top. I always feel awesome when I wear it. Then just some simple black skinny jeans from AE and black flats.Working girl!



Now if you'll excuse me I must run! J just came home and now we're off to the pub for drinks with friends! 

Love you all,
Erin

  1. Satin Taupe is gorgeous! I'm not very familiar with Mac eyeshadows, but this taupe is beautiful, and if I were more into mac, I'd pick this up

    The lack of incentives/no program rewards makes me unhappy u.u

    1. I totally know what you mean Vanessa! That's why I more often then not end up shopping at Sephora, because of the points card. But every time I do go into MAC and make a purchase, I understand why everyone loves them so much. They really do make some pretty fantastic products!

    1. Thanks Sierra! Yes, make sure you do check this lipstick out. While you're at it check out the other colours in the Kate Moss for RImmel line. The lipsticks are so amazing! The mattes are some of the most comfortable and hydrating mattes I have ever tried.

    3. I use a Nikon D60 to shoot all my photos (with the exception of my iPhone,...duh). For these photos I used my Nikkor 18-55mm lens.
