Makeup is an Art, but your beauty is in your soul; Our face is a camouflage that paints confidence; Our personality is what sells happiness.
My name is Frances and I reside in NYC. My love for art started at the age of 11 writing poetry, then it grew to photography developing my own films and last makeup in my late 20's (using colors, mixing colors, blending, etc.) Makeup has become my drug and therapy.
The Day is almost here --- you may love it or you may hate it but "always go with a smile."
L'OREAL HIP DUO- N- 'Flamboyant'
I've been eyeing L'oreal Duo's for a long time especially this color. It's so pretty and vibrant, but I never bought it because it reminded me of MAC's Limited Style Warriors - Vibrant Grape (purple) and Bright Future (yellow). In my opinion, it is similar and both are very gorgeous. Therefore, if you never purchased those two colors from MAC this is a perfect substitute. I bought different colors so I'll be posting further looks.
Too Face Eye Primer
MAC 'Bare Study' Paint Pot
L'oreal Duo - 'yellow' in the inner to middle of lid
L'oreal Duo - 'purple' in the middle lid to outer lid
Using MAC #224 blending brush, I blend the outer lid using the 'purple'
MAC 'Da Bling' e/s on the crease and blending up toward the brow
L'oreal Duo 'purple' under the waterline and then using MAC #217 blending brush to give it a smokey look
Urban Decay 'Zero' eyeliner on lid and waterline
I used the same description as below in my 1st look except I used:
Cheek - Maybelline Dream Mousse #25 Rose Petal - VERY PRETTY TEXTURE & COLOR
MAC LE Lipstick 'Full Body'
MAC LE Lipglass 'Personal Taste' - LOVE this color and the combination with the lipstick. I had to buy 2 of each before it was completely gone from the store.
I didn't use a lip liner but if you like to use it the following are good matches: Quartz (MAC); Blackberry (Bitchslap) or Mahogany (NYX)
This is not very good picture, but the colors I used are from MAC Style Warriors so you can compare to L'oreal Duo Flamboyant.
Makeup Forever Face Primer (Green)
Revlon Color Stay in Warm Golden
MAC Select Sheer Powder
MAC Mineralize 'Checky Bronze' on cheek
MAC 'Fun & Games' blush (Limited Hello Kitty Collection)
MAC Mineralize 'Soft & Gentle' as a highlighter
Too Face Eye Primer
Stila 'Kitten' on the entire eye
Stila 'Twig' on the crease & under the water line
*** I MUST say I love these two colors. It's my favorite colors from Stila. If you're a big fan of 'Shroom' from MAC then you will love Kitten. And as for Twig, it's a beautiful penny color. ***
