Heya, ladies! What’s shakin’? I just got home from work and wanted to share the look I wore to the office today. It’s a subtle, smokey, purple, pink and taupe eye (what a mouthful!) done using products from Stila’s Red Carpet Looks palette.
Self-imposed makeup lockdown came to an end a few days ago when I spotted the palette on sale for $15.20 at Beautycrunch.com. Isn’t the “magazine” cover cute? Inside are three shadows, a blush and a lipgloss.
Stila Red Carpet Looks
- Shell eye shadow: light, shimmery pink with glitter
- Puck eye shadow: shimmery taupe
- Dahlia eye shadow: matte, dark purple
- Fade blush: matte tan
- It Gloss in Sweet: a shimmery coral-pink lipgloss
I like to wear a lil’ color to the office but can’t go over the top, ya know? I’ll gladly push the envelope, but I can only push it so far before getting in trouble. I think the shadows that come with this kit are great work shades — colorful but not draggy.
Tonight I’m heading into SF for the annual Macy’s Passport charity fashion show. I went last year and had a blast. No interviews scheduled this time around, but I’m bringing along my trusty camera and reporter’s notebook, so hopefully I come away with some good photos and maybe a makeup tip or two for the blog.
We’re almost to Friday. Looks like we made it!
