contouring practice

January 27, 2009

I’ve been trying to produce cheekbones out of my face. It’s a bit hard, especially with the lighting in the house.

I used NYC bronzer for contouring. I like it because it’s matte .  Was supposed to use Toffee from Fanny Serrano, but it’s too light for me. Tsk tsk. Makeup counters should have more natural light.

But to be fair, SM’s lighting has vastly improved.

Anyway, for highlighting, i used MAC hyper real in extra light. It was a freebie from my purchase yesterday. It’s a nice highlighter, very subtle.

Excuse the muddy eyes.  I haven’t gotten the hang of eye makeup yet. I was practicing with my 28-pc coastal scents neutral palette. I think I need to layer on more color, no?


Also on my face — celeteque moisturizer (i love this stuff. i mix it with my heavier moisturizers too!), laura mercier secret concealer, l.m. secret brightening powder, shu uemura hard pencil for my eyebrows (i love this pencil. we are life partners). oh and mac studio fix powder compact in nc45. Apparently it’s too dark for my skin. But I’m quite happy with it. I’d rather that than too light.

chin chan chu nightmares, anyone?
