Makeup of the Week: Glistening Eyes and Juicy Lips.

Makeup of the Week: Glistening Eyes and Juicy Lips.

This has been a very busy week.  After celebrating Easter and all the cleanup that comes along with hosting a holiday party, makeup application needed to be quick and easy.  For this Makeup of the Week:  Glistening Eyes and Juicy Lips, I utilized another cream eyeshadow and recent acquisition:  Tom Ford Platinum Cream Eyeshadow.  This mauvish-taupish-brown glistening pot of loveliness was so easy and effortless to use, I now need/want (one in the same) the whole collection.  However, that may be a problem, seeing as how Tom Ford Cream Eyeshadows were limited edition and can only be found at certain CCO locations…I can sense my husband breathing a “sigh” of relief 🙂

**For a slightly less dramatic look, try using a brown liner instead of black to line the upper lash line.  For the above photos, I used L’Oreal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil in Brown as my liner for the day.  MAC Pressed Amber was also applied with a heavier hand to balance out the overall look.

THE VERDICT:  If makeup could talk what would it say?

Makeup would tell you even though these seem like a lot of products, it only took me 25 minutes to apply a full face of makeup.  I know it seems hard to believe, but the more you do something the easier it becomes. The right tools also make for a more pleasurable and productive experience.  I hope you found this helpful. Be well and stay safe.
