FOTD: Using Lancome Eyeshadows

Hello you guys!!! Sorry for being MIA for so long. Summer classes had started about two weeks ago and I started a new job so these reasons were keeping me away from blogging. I will try to blog as much as I could. Anyway, here's a recent look I created with the mini Lancome Color Design in Sensational Effects quad that my sister got as a gift. I don't have any Lancome e/s because I only love love MAC e/s. Sorry that the pictures aren't color-vivid. I'm still learning my camera techniques. The look is so pretty and it actually does give the colors an effect too (hint: smokey). Anyway, on to the pictures...

FOTD: Using Ebay Fake Eyeshadow (Posthast)

Remember my post about the MAC fake eyeshadow that I got it off from ebay?? If you don't then you can check it out here. According to the seller, the fake eyeshadow was called "posthast". This is the first time I decided to use this "posthast" fake eyeshadow. It is actually a really really pretty color and it is very pigmented. I like it a lot because of the boldness of the color. So, here's the look I created with this fake eyeshadow.

Mineral Foundation SPF 15 Loose Powder in Medium Dark
Dame blush

Saddle e/s on lid and just above crease

Quick Airbrushed Makeup Tips

Just a quick tip for those of you that are using mineral or powder alone or to set your foundation. If your face tends to get flaky (or you want an airbrushed look) after you put powder on, spray MAC Fix+ 2-3 pumps and about 10 inches away from your face. You may use water if you like. Then take your powder brush or MAC 187 (if you have one or any stipling brush) and using stipling motion and go all over your face. This method helps shrink your large pores as well. Don't overspray the Fix+ on your face or you'll end up looking like you got a gallon of water poured on you. Good luck!



I thought having a chatterbox here would be more accessible to leave comments/suggestions and for my replies. Or if you like you can always leave comments on an entry you find interesting. Thanks!
