A Dior Golden Jungle Face of the Day (Night?)

Wow, I can’t believe it’s 11 already. I seriously zoned out playing with makeup this afternoon. Somehow I lost track of about three hours, LOL!


Oh, well. Not like it’s the first time that’s happened. πŸ™‚

What are you up to tonight? No plans for me, obviously. My office is in a room upstairs, and El Hub and Tabs are watching TV downstairs, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, judging by the sound of it. I think I’ll go say hi to the boys.

I wish I had somewhere fun or fancy to go because I’d love to take this eye look out for a spin. I used the new Dior Golden Jungle Palette in Golden Browns #002.

Dior probably could have left out the sheer, nude peach gloss… It doesn’t exactly scream, “I’m worthy of a $70 palette!” especially one that could really benefit from the addition of a blush, but whatcha gonna do?

Love the little hatch over the gloss to protect it from any eyeshadow spillover. Good on ya, Dior. That’s a nice touch.

I think the rest of the palette is pretty fab. The eyeshadows are top-notch (and should be for $70). No fallout, easy to blend, and no creasing, yes!

Additional makeup worn in this look…

I also like that I can see just hint of shimmer in the shadows. They look very elegant, and definitely way too sophisticated for the sweats and tank top I’m sporting at this very moment.

Let’s see… It’s 11:23 right now. Time for an old episode of 30 Rock, I think. πŸ™‚

Oh, random question, but do you ever watch The League? The fantasy football sitcom?


I don’t know why it occurred to me, but I just love that show, even though I don’t know anything at all about fantasy football.

There’s this character named Andre on the show who cracks me up! He’s a dorky doctor who thinks he’s Rico Suave, but he has the worst taste imaginable!

Anywho, check it out if you get a chance. Have a nice evening, and I’ll see you in a few.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Wow! So stunning and sultry! A wonderful makeup for your exotic looks.

  4. Andreea says:

    Gorge! Of course way too expensive as usual, but a fab piece for collectors. And I confess an ultimate look for me.
    But – you used a lot of extras to achieve that look and it would not look as hot as it does if it weren’t you!! SUPERMODEL!!

  5. I love how you did your eyeliner! It’s perfectly winged out and smudgy and PRETTY! I so wish I could line my eyes like this, but the shape of mine prevents me from going all the way to the inner corner along the top. The overall look is beautiful–but still, I don’t think I’ll be dropping $70 for this. I have way too many browns and neutrals πŸ˜›

    And I neeeeed that bangle! It’s super pretty!!

  7. Paris B says:

    Oh wow! This is absolutely gorgeous! The look and you I mean. The eyes are beautifully done. I’m less enamoured about the palette mostly because like many I would prefer that the gloss was a blush. p/s I’m loving your earrings! πŸ˜€

  8. Jenna N. says:

    that looks beautiful. how much time do you spend with just applying and blending eyeshadow like that? it always looks so masterful! =)

  9. Marina says:

    Killer liner, Karen! I also love how you’ve combined gold and light blue nail polish, looks chic.

  12. Sarah says:

    You look gorgeous in these photos! I am seriously crushing on this palette. I may need to buy it as a back to school (work) present for myself. You nails look cute too! What polish are you wearing?

  13. Gosh Karen, you’re TOOOOOOO sexy! I have HIGH expectations for this collection, and I’ll finally get to see it in about a week. Can’t wait!!!

    I would love to see how you take such fabulous pictures of yourself. Maybe a video of you in action? You just look stunning in every single picture.

  20. musical says:

    Wow! Love the makeup AND the jewelry! How hot is that bracelet! Deets, please!

    Looks like i’ve missed so many posts :(. BUT, I did end up getting that Neutrogena gloss in Copper Power and it feels like something I could wear everyday and I’ve been reaching out for it, a LOT!

    Hope you are having a swell weekend. *Hug*, Karen and sniffs and meows to T-money.

  21. Libby says:

    Your makeup looks absolutely gorgeous!

    I love The League, too! I also know absolutely nothing about football fantasy leagues but that is one of the funniest shows I’ve stumbled upon in quite awhile. I love the episodes with Shiva and the way they all yell her name!

  22. Katie says:

    You have been killing it lately with the eye looks, Karen! This is fabulous.

  23. Julie says:

    Unrelated but I love your nailpolish and earrings! What brand are they both?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Julie,

      I’m wearing NARS Kutki in my nails. Unfortch I don’t know who makes the earrings. They were a gift from my mom. I know she got them from Nordstrom a while back.

  24. Bernice says:

    You are so beautifulllll !

  25. Krithika says:

    Sorry for the off topic post but where did you get that bracelet you were wearing in the first pic? I’m in lust… Love the eye btw. Looks like a perfect for work kinda look.

  26. Lindsay says:

    You look stunning!

  27. Yelena says:

    whoa momma!! u look abso-freaking-lutely gorge!

  28. Rozae says:

    Forget the eyeshadow, that bracelet is fab!

  29. That liner is FIERCE, Karen! Not to mention perfect for a jungle-inspired collection πŸ˜‰

    Oh I love this look, I want to recreate this straight away

  31. Susan says:

    Love how you did your eye makeup in these pics–perfect with the jewelry–so modern Cleopatra!
    Tabs + el Hub must have been swooning.
    Another great post, Karen. I still think this palette is pretty but not coming home with me based on the price and the contents. Thanks to you, I feel like I get to try everything and cherry-pick what’s the very best for me.

  32. Jennifer says:

    It’s a beautiful look on you! While the price doesn’t scare me, like others have posted, it is a lot to spend on another neutral palette. Also, add me to the list of those dying to know about that awesome bracelet!

  33. This look, looks great with your tone! I love that cheetah look! How adorable.

    Btw love the Nars Nails πŸ™‚ Gorgeous color!

  34. Tania says:

    I also would love to know where that gorgeous bangle is from. I love it.

  35. Minnegirl says:

    Karen, you look stunning! Love the eyes and your poses! πŸ™‚

  36. Karen says:

    Hi gals!

    About that bracelet: I got it a while back (like last year) at Nordstrom. Unfortunately I can’t remember the designer. πŸ™

  37. Rachel says:

    You look gorgeous in the pics!
    I agree. Lip gloss in palettes are very meh

    Your liner looks amazing! Really makes your beautiful eyes stand out! Also loving the blue nail polish!

  41. Karen, don’t get creeped out but the pictures from this post so incredibly well done, I find myself re-reading the posts (like 4x now *blushes*) just to review the pics and get inspired by your make up application.

    I can’t afford the Dior palette but am definitely going to check out the L’Oreal eyeliner!

  42. Lydia L says:

    Hey Karen!! I love your makeup…….your whole look in this pic!! You look like Kimora Lee Simmons twin sister!! Be Blessed…XOXO

  43. Berry says:

    This look is great, where did you place each colour to get that effect?

  44. Vanessa says:

    Karen, when I saw the picture with you looking down, I think I finally “got” how to do a cat eye and liner all around the eye without it looking like too much. And I did it. It was a great success. Thanks!

  45. Barbara says:

    I truly think any collection would look marvelous on you with your hair up like it is in this picture. With your hair up and away from the face, your features are seen as more striking.

    And you look beautiful!!!!

  46. Samyukta says:

    Gosh! I love what you have done with the eyes… STUNNING!
