Evening Out FOTD

Last night I had a business dinner to go to and so I felt that I needed to dress up a bit even though the restaurant that we went to doesn't have a high class environment.

Products used:

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill 20, 21 and 23
Addiction Eyeshadow Mystic Mirage
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eyeliner
Shiseido Mascara Base
Canmake Agebuto Mascara
Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect Mascara
Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation 109
Canmake Cheek & Cheek Blush 06 (LE)
Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip Color Love Child

I did an explanation of the Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill EOTD in my post here. The only difference is that I added Mystic Mirage to the outer brow bone area and used NARS eyeliner on water line of upper eyelid. I curled my lashes and used Shiseido mascara base which helps to hold my curl. I applied Agebuto mascara, which is a waterproof mascara and that also helps hold my curl. I then applied the Sephora mascara because I like the effect that it gives as it really seems to darken the lashes and make it fuller. I'm sorry but I forgot to separate my lashes before taking the picture!

The foundation that I used tonight was Clarins Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation in 109. This foundation gives a nice finish and while it's rather natural looking, it also gives good, long-lasting coverage. Since my eyes were made up darker than normal, I decided to go with light cheeks and lips. I'm really loving the Canmake Cheek & Cheek blush in 06. Too bad it's an LE shade. Lips were done using Urban Decay pencil gloss in Love Child.

I love how this Canmake Blush gives a nice pink flush to the cheeks. It's nicely pigmented so you can apply too much--yes, I've done it! Please take note of my beautiful handmade earrings from Fushigi Shop. I wore these thinking that it's the perfect time to wear it. Please do check out this wonderful store with enticing jewelry pieces. Yasumi is away on vacation right now but she will soon be returning and coming up with more beautiful and unique creations.

I must say that when I purchased the Eyes to Kill eyeshadows, I was hesitant on #23 (the opalescence white shadow). I'm so glad that I bought it because it has to be my favorite of the 3 colors that I purchased.

The blush looks lovely on you dear. :) I think your Armani Eyes To Kill look is pretty elegant. I gravitate to light shimmery cream eyeshadows too. I'm always using my Chanel Emerveille one and the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool.

@Rainy Days and Lattes--Thank you! I like Canmake products too!

@Yu Ming--Thanks to you for helping me to purchase this LE Canmake blush! I'm really liking the Eyes to Kill shadows. L'Oreal Infallibles are very similar to ETK but I think that ETK has more depth to them.

Beautiful look! You really look radiant, love the glow from the blush. I really like Canmake, such good products for their pricing! It's a shame that they make certain shades LE though.

the GA eyes to kill are to die for! #23 is really a fascinating shade - it looks wonderful in the pan but makes you wonder what shade it'll actually show up - but once applied it looks like heaven!!

I'd kill for the ETKs! They look absolutely amazing on you. I'd have thought that #23 is a difficult shade to pull off as well so I'm really happy it works for you
