FOTD: Winter Wonderland

Thanksgiving isn’t even here and already there are decorations EVERYWHERE for Christmas. I saw a postcard with a whole bunch of snow (we never get such wintry weather in LA) and I was inspired to do this:

Armani Designer Cream Foundation
NARS Blush in Desire
Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in Silver
RMK Eyeshadow in Metallic Silver
NARS Eyeshadow in Mekong
Guerlain Kohl in Black Fakir
Stila Smudge Pot in Black
Buxom Mascara
Kaplan MD Lip 20 in Blackberry Shine

    Your eyes look angelic. Very "Holiday Season."I really want to try that Armani foundation. I don't have a full coverage foundation right now. How well does it to with oily skin? I see "cream" and I all I think is "thick grease." Of course I expect this brand to be of higher quality, but still.

    Thank you! The Armani foundation is fantastic. It is a cream… but it sets to a semi-matte finish. I have very oily skin, and I DO have to use a powder with this if I expect it to last. For this look, I skipped the powder. But if you want it to wear all day, I'd set it with an HD powder of some sort.The coverage is full, and a little goes a very long way. I think some people were having issues with it because they thought it made their skin look chalky; that's likely because they were using too much. I always use as little as possible, and build from there. This foundation is totally buildable.
