I get a lot of questions about my beauty routine, but the truth is I don’t really have one. I am pretty promiscuous where products are concerned ~ I like to try em all!! That’s why I thought it would be fun to begin integrating regular beauty posts into this site’s spectrum of stories, to let you in on what I’m loving of late.
Since my favorite area to experiment on is my eyes, that seemed like the best place to start this series. My sister recently turned me on to Chanel‘s Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow, and I must say I’m amazed. It is hands down, by far, the most long-lasting eyeshadow I’ve ever encountered! Put it on in the morning and find yourself still crease-free in the evening. Below, the three colors I’ve been using most: Mirifique, Ébloui, and Épatant:
I also recently decided it was high time I tried Urban Decay‘s famous Naked2 palette, which Sephora‘s website describes as ‘the most anticipated sequel of the decade’. Marketing hyperbole notwithstanding, it didn’t disappoint. It contains every neutral you’ll ever need, making it great for gals on the go. I love to use the Chanel colors above as a base, then blend with one of the shimmery shadows below:
Do you have any new favorites or time-tested standbys that I simply must try? Or any beauty questions you’d like me to address? Let me know in the comments!
