Coral Times

Hey Dolls :)

If you couldn't tell from my previous post I have fallen in love with Mad Men and in particular with the make up they use on set. For the last couple of days I've followed suit with red lips and big lashes.


Face - MAC Studio Finish Concealer/Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser/MAC MSF Natural/Dior Amber Diamond

Eyes - YSL Faux Cils

Lips - Illamasqua Strumpet Pencil/MAC Toxic Tale

This fits in well with my 'not very many products during the day' phase I'm in the middle of just now. It's been a little bit of an adjustment not wearing blush but I'm quite enjoying wearing a lot less face make up in the daytime!

As for toxic tale, I've definitely decided I'm not really a fan of the formula of MAC's satin lipsticks, I always think they feel really heavy on the lips, I'm really conscious that I'm wearing lipstick if that makes sense?

Where are you pulling inspiration from lately?

Lots of Love
Nic

  1. Looking great! The minimal makeup makes your beautiful eyes pop even more.:D

    Yes, I agree, MAC's satin lipsticks sometimes do feel heavy but I don't really mind.:D

    Happy Thursday!:D

  2. Love the lipstick on you.

    I'm feeling a bit lacking in make-up inspiration lately - hopefully I'll find some soon as most of my make-up is going untouched!

  6. Glimmer and Glow - Thank you :)

    Marie - Sometimes it just feels lovely just to wear mascara! I suppose if it's as pretty as this, heaviness doesn't matter ;)

    LilyLipstick - Ohh no :( At least it will be lots of fun when you rediscover it all again!

    Emma - Aww thank you so much sweets!

    Jennie - Thank you my love!!

  10. This look is SO gorgeous & it suits you so well! It's very simple but stunning :). I agree with you on the satin finishes, not my fave.. feels like the product just sits on top of your lips! xo
