FOTD 9.14.14 | Sunday Shopping & A Few New Products

FOTD 9.14.14

Most Sundays I’m content to go grocery shopping and run my errands bare faced, but this week I had a few products I couldn’t wait to try out.  This week my orders from Hakuhodo and Makeup Geek arrived so I had a bit of a play with eyeshadows, blush, and new brushes.  I went fairly light on foundation since I usually try to give my skin a break on weekends.  The eyes are a very warm, almost orangey brown with my typical half stripe of black liner.  For cheeks I used a warm pink blush and on the lips I used one of my favorite bright lipsticks from Bobbi Brown.  It’s a very easy and quick look that would be suitable for the majority of skin tones.  If you’re darker you may need some darker browns on the eyes but the shadows from MUG are very pigmented so they may work for you after all!

While the brush was very good at separating and defining the lashes, it gave almost no volume and not as much length as I was hoping for. I’m happy to report this formula is a definite improvement.
