I am so disappointed that i dont have a camera to take pics today because i am LOVING my FOTD! I rarely have time in the mornings to do full eye make up but i knew everyone was gonna be out of the office this morning until 11 so i brought my make up to work with me & spent the past 45 mins doing it! I'll do this look again at the weekend and take pics.

FACE:

Estee Lauder DoubleWear Foundation in Fresco

NARS Laguna Bronzing Powder

Stila Convertible Colour in Gladiola

Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer under eyes

Dior Skinflash under eyes

EYES:

MAC Bare Canvas as an e/s base

Stila Mystic on lid & under lower lash line

Stila Charm in crease

Stila Kitten in the inner corners & to highlight brow area

MAC Smolder Eye Kohl to line top lash line

Shu Uemera Basic Mascara

LIPS:

Rimmel Lipliner in Get Up & Go

MAC Brew

Clinique Glosswear for Lips in Whisper

FRAGRANCE:

Clinique Happy

Edited: Pics added.. I dont know why but my skin looks really bumpy in the pics. its weird coz my skin is really good at the moment! Anyway some of the pics were taken with a flash, some without! Please note, pics were taken at the end of the day!

And I believe Trisha said they are double the size of MAC and only a couple dollars more...hell, I might just order one offline to see what all the hoopla is about
See what you girls do to my poor thinning wallet?!?
BTW, Laura, are you of Irish descent? I am part Irish (well more like 1/4), and I've always wanted to visit Ireland, and Scotland, and England...you get the idea
I am trying to save up money to go to Europe next summer before I go to college...

Yup they are about double the size of MAC alright & well worth the money. I used to be a MAC only girl but i much prefer my Stila shadows now. Gonna buy lots more of their e/s!

Yup i am 150% irish! My parents are, their parents were & their parents were.. I dont know anymore after that. That's cool that you're part irish! What part of the country was your family from? I'm down the south in Cork

I looked on Stila's website, and I think their colors are more my speed, so to speak. I think bright, vivid colors are pretty on other people, I just can't make them look 'right' on myself. I have a question about the packaging though; I think it's cute that it's cardboard, but does it hold up relatively well. I don't carry my eye makeup with me or anything, but I would be sad if I shattered a new eyeshadow that crushed in my bag or got dropped.What shades do you like the best? I like the barefoot contessa, starlight, and I think poise (is that a plum type color? I really want a eggplant-type shade..can you reccommend anything?)

I don't know what region I descend from, but my grandmother has it written down in a lineage chart, and it goes back pretty far...I wish I had it
I am also Swedish and Czech (my maternal grandma is 100%), so I'm a mutt
Bright Irish green is one of my favorite colors though (besides pink)...I think I want to apply to Notre Dame University partly for the mascot...Fightin' Irish!

sounds really nice Laura, and yes please taks pics of this looks whenever you do it again. don´t think I´ve ever tried to pair colors like that. (and since I don´t have any Stila e/s I think I could try it with Surreal on the lid and Plum on the crease...they look very similar to me according to the swatches you posted)

Anne you have to go to a Stila counter to see the e/s,and try them to see which are best for you,but Stila has a perfect color range and you will find something!Stila has their e/s in cardboard and in pans!I prefer pans to make my own palette,you can do the same thing only you have to buy the palettes to,there are 4pan,6pan and 8pan.I have 5 already and I'm going to buy more,and I think Starlight it's the best eyeshadow to start !!

To be honest i only converted to Stila 3 weeks ago so i'm not the best person to ask! Trisha & Lea are big fans though & Trisha is a MA for Stila so i'm sure she'll be able to help you out choosing colours. My favourites at the moment are Kitten, Oasis, Jezebel, Latte, Barefoot Contessa, Mystic & Charm. Poise is next on my list!

I didn't know the Notre Dame's mascot was Fighting Irish until i saw it in a show on MTV a few weeks ago. I was like "why are all the US dudes wearing fighting irish sweaters"!!

This light rust,goldish, bronzish color on my inside contour (drugstore makeup)

Black/smoke drugstore makeup on my outer contour

Gold shadow on my brow

Bronze Avon highligher on the area under my eyes, my forehead, my chin and the tip of my nose

Black liquid liner (drug store)

Clear mascarra (drug store)

Black Avon mascarra

Brown eyebrow pencil (drugstore)


Brown lip liner

Pink/crystal shimmer on lips (Avon)

Lip gloss

So this is my first time using this web cam thing, eventually I'll get a feel for my makeup and the lightening etc. I don't have a professional kit yet, so bare with my drugstore brands for now!! Thaaaanx


The gold eyeshadow looks so pretty on your dark skin...and a lot of my stuff is drugstore, but I am working on it! As long as it looks good, who cares what brand it is or where you bought it!
