So, my sort of signature look this year has been smokey-ish eyes and red lips. For me, that’s a fool proof look I can pull from day to night. Part of the reason also is that smokey eyes can hide a multitude of makeup mistakes and then I distract with red lips. haha… 😛
So, here’s how I’m ringing out the old year and ringing in the new.
Because I’m feeling a little lazy, I’m going with quite an understated eye look. A quick blend of the Maybelline Eyestudio Diamond Glow palette in pink gray and I’m done. I’ve used it so much this year with great success, I amaze myself at how this affordable palette has saved my look time and again since I discovered it.
For a touch of understated glam, I’ve dabbed on the Guerlain le 2 Brush Mascara in Reine 2 Nuit which was released with the Guerlain Christmas collection. I’m going to complain about the packaging. It looks pretty, but feels like plastic which saddens me. I liked the heft of the original le 2 Brush mascara 🙁 The base mascara colour is black and the top coat is gold. Not very noticable but catches a little under the lights. Which red lip did you think I’d go with?
And that brings 2009 to a close. I wonder if I’m going to have a signature look in 2010 or if I’d just stick to this one since it works well for me. Hmm…
What’s your signature look and how are you ringing in the new year?
