since i’m usually such a liner person, i figured i’d try a “softer” look to go with my taupey top, and (gasp) NO eyeliner.
i am really loving the NARS Duo Eyeshadows. sometimes you look at the shade combinations and wonder if they’ll go together, but invariably they ALWAYS do in a very unexpected, genius way. Star Sailor is described as a “heather gold/antique bronze” combo on the website. pretty accurate – when applied, the gold was “golder” than expected, the bronze was a luxurious rich brown shade with a subtle metallic — nothing gaudy or housewife-y.
i’m usually a peach-tone blush kinda gal, so i’m trying to step out of my comfort zone. Douceur Blush is described as a pink brown. it provides a really lovely “contoured” cheek look, with the slightest hint of color, so you don’t look completely nuded.
even though the site describes this as an “amber red”, i would say it reads almost Terracotta on the lips (or at least my lips). i think the best way to describe this shade: an incredibly easy, wearable red. it’s red/orange/pink all mixed in one — definitely a shade you could probably wear every day without looking over-done. it gives just that little extra flushed pigment to your lips in a natural way.
