Makeup Monday: Restores Dazzle




cheeks: MAC Cremeblend Blush in Restores Dazzle, MAC lipstick in Violetta (LE - check to see if your local store or counter has Heroine in stock for a similar look, or try Revlon Berry Haute), Urban Decay Stardust Lip Gloss in Glitter Rock

Lately, my eyes have been super sensitive - probably because I'm under the weather. I've been forgoing my liner and even mascara on most days, which is hard on my ego because my eyes all but disappear without them. I have short, straight lashes that refuse to curl, and even mascara does little to enhance them (proof: I'm actually wearing a coat in the pictures). But I'll take a tiny blow to the ego before eye pain any day, so I've been embracing the naked eye and focusing on something I don't give enough love to on this blog: blush! I'm going to point out the obvious here and say that the name Restores Dazzle is all too appropriate for this creamy blush; it takes my sickly pallor and gives it life! Paired with a pop of bright, glossy fuchsia on the lips, you'd swear I haven't spent the last week in bed with a box of tissues, loads of cold medicine, and a Golden Girls marathon. I hope.

  8. That color is impressive. And yes, it definitely masks the illness-stricken weekend look.

  14. Even if your eyes are sensitive right now, I still like this natural look. You can get away with it! If I tried to go without ANY eyeliner, I'd look 12. Enjoy your good looks and natural beauty! Us readers do!

  17. I would have never guessed that your lipcolor looks so purple out of the tube. But it looks amazing when you put on some UD Stardust over the top.

    Question..

    what is the best way to apply the creme blush? sponge applicator? or do u use a brush? And does it feel sticky when applied? Does the creme blush stay on longer than a powder?

    Thanks for your help!

    xoxo

  18. Oh, that lip gloss is incredible!

    p.s. and totally o.t. - I have a brand new blog about my adventures with my Paso Fino, Coro, who I have mentioned to you before. I know you must get a million and one "look at my blog" requests a day, but not many people have Pasos in common :)

    That lipstick color looks intimidating in the tube, but it's actually totally wearable and looks fantastic on you!

    A question: I also have really short and straight lashes (full-blood asian) and I haven't really found a mascara that does much for them yet - any recommendations?
