FOTD using Chanel Tweed Fuchsia

Hi girls!

As promised, here is a FOTD using the Chanel Tweed Fuchsia! 

Laura Mercier mineral powder in Natural Beige
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NC20
Chanel Tweed Fuchsia
Lorac Perfectly Lit powder in Spotlight
Dior Shimmer Powder in Amber Diamond
Dior waterproof eyeliner in Trinidad Black
L'Oreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon Black
Buxom Lash mascara in Blackest Black
Chanel Rouge Allure lip gloss in Imaginaire

As you may have noticed, I use two highlighters. It's getting colder and I've got dry dehydrated skin so I need all the help I can get! I apply Lorac Spotlight all over my cheeks and then apply Dior Amber Diamond a bit more sparingly to the tops of my cheeks. 

When I first saw the photo below from the Giambattista Valli F10 show, I completely fell in love with it. Lately, I've been trying to copy it as best as I can and have been teasing my hair and putting it in a low bun.  My hair was a little neater than usual today though because I had work all day.

That blush looks super cute!

And I love that hair style! I always try and get my back combing to sit t the back of my head, but its so difficult to get it in the right place, and not more towards the top of my head if you know what I mean?
You hair is gorgeous!

WillWorkForMakeup- Thank you!

Kim- Hey Kim! It's actually just an american apparel v-neck (the ones everyone and their mom, dad, and brother wears haha). If you like the silk scarf, it's by a company called Echo Design! The Bay should have it in 3 different colours

Jolene- Thank you, you're always so sweet

Keyta Hawkins- aw thank you so much. I'm loving the red lips you're rocking in your picture

Sam- I absolutely know what you mean! I always carry a comb wherever I go so I can tease my hair. You should see me when I forget that comb. I get pretty annoyed haha!

Ana Sofia- Thank you so much! You're so kind

Original Number- Thank you!

All of you girls are so sweet. Thank you for all of your kind comments!

Love the hair and the fuchsia cheeks! Random question, are you wearing a Ferregamo scarf in the pictures??

Elise said...

-Q- Thank you! haha I'm actually wearing a much more affordable scarf. It's by Echo Design. If you want to see the scarf, it's this one. x
