some inspirational looks -


I'm looking foward to try this one, although it'll have to be modified to suit my eye shape.

This other one is similar but colour is kept lower, and just a tad muted.



And for this one below, what I like is how its colourful yet looks very wearable because the colours aren't in-your-face bright, but just subtle and well blended.



Sometimes I wish I had more off days from work so I could try these looks out. Two days in a weekend isn't enough time to play with makeup ...:(

Also, I just hauled 3N lipstick and 2N lipgloss from the N Collection....which seem like they'll be a good match for those nude lips in the looks above yay :D

I wish I'd read this post before I went out :P I hopped into MAC this morning and having looked at the N collection, I just went, "MEH". But I love the colours you've picked. That means I'll have to go in again tomorrow :P

The muted gold with browns are LOVELY

2N Lipglass! I have this but I keep debating about returning or keeping it. Thanks for the inspiration photos. I also find Bollywood/Indian makeup really inspirational (just taken down a few degrees in intensity).

Chiara said...

I agree with (g) You should try it and post about it!

I love the first picture! Now I can finally put my Pure Ore Metal-X e/s to use!

I've got 2N lipstick coming in the mail, so hopefully it looks good. I have such a hard time finding a good nude, so this may be it!

hey there.. i left a msg here before under "nicola"
thought be easier to leave a msg under my blogspot username now lol. anyway your blog is really cool. im sure those looks would look great on you, i would love to see the the third look on you!!

N collection has just come out in UK.. im hoping to grab the msf ^^ nice haul.. i hope that stipple brush worked out for you. i didnt want to spend loads on a 187 brush either so i grab it when it was in the holiday brush set!

Vanessa said...

I do love the subtle colorful picture can't wait to see your version of it!

Hope you are having a great week!

the first one is soooooo beautiful!! I am totally going to give it a try. Now that I look closely, models' skins really aren't that fact they're actually kind of bad.

geekchic: aww i didn't mean to create lemmings for you! i did the exact same thing when i first went to pick up Light flush MSF - completely ignored the lip colours - until i saw some swatches on pursebuzz.

gezebel & chiara: its so pretty right? i want to do a fotd with it :)

psychoexgf: I'm having the same problem with my 138 brush, although I still have time. One thing i like about getting stuff from counters at The Bay is how they have 3 months to return something lol :)

emilee: hope it works for you! 2N lipstick looked too pale for me but 2N gloss was better so I got that instead. make sure you post pics if you try the looks :)

mae: yup i like how the 2nd one is so wearable. i could see that look being ok for work.

christiana: post pics if you try it!

nicola: hey again :) i'm lemming that kate palette you just posted btw. the brush set is a pretty good deal, i have one too but its the novel twist one.

vanessa: hey you're back! thanks, i hope things are going well for you too :)

petitebelle: haha i was thinking the exact same thing from these can see where the foundation is hiding their blemishes if you look closely. makes me feel a bit better about my skin...
i guess breaking out is probably a job hazard for them, they must get lots of different products slapped on their faces all the time.
