My good friend Jen gets hitched in Florida next month, and I can’t wait! I’m looking forward to the wedding, but I’m not looking forward to packing.
Why? Because I overpack (hey, I like options) — always have — but not this time. This time, come hell or high water, I’m going to streamline.
To manage my makeup better than I usually do, I thought I’d bring along some palettes — just two (or three or four!). Today, I interviewed the first applicant for the job: Stila Front Cover Look No. 4.
I’m Jen’s matron of honor (I’m still not sure what matrons do). Both my bridesmaid dress and shoes are gold, so I’d like my makeup to complement them. As far as how bold a look I can get away with, it’s an afternoon church ceremony, which means nothing too disco or drag queen (oh, well).
There Are 4 Stila Front Cover Look Palettes
Look No. 4 is one of four limited edition Front Cover Look palettes by Stila. They’ve been out for a while (not exactly sure when they came out), and I had to get a little creative to find this one. Each includes three eyeshadows, a blush and one lipgloss, all packaged in a slim case with magazine motif.

The Front Cover Look No. 3 palette makes an appearance in this Face of the Day.
I love No. 4′s neutral peachy pink and brown…

I did this look while watching Ben Affleck pretend to cry 8 times in Jersey Girl this afternoon. Pretty good movie except for Ben’s crying. Dude just does not know how to fake cry.
So, I like the softness and colors of this look, but I dunno if it’s right for a special occasion… Can I get your input? What would you wear with a pale gold dress and shoes?
