My Favorite Look This Week #6

Admittedly, my product choices have been a bit of a snooze-fest lately, because I just seem to reach for the same products over and over again. I guess these could also be considered some of my current favorites.
Sonia Kashuk Shine Luxe Sheer Lip Colour in Sheer Pink Lust
Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Foundation Powder in 120
MAC Blush in Hang Loose

Although I don't necessarily think the Artist's Palette is a must-have per se, I've really been enjoying using it nonetheless. Since I had been dipping my brush into the purple tones in the palette a lot lately, I decided to go for a brown smokey eye on this particular day, opting for Bamboo on the lid, a layered combo of Truffle and Espresso Bean on the outer third of the lid, Fresco to blend everything out past the crease, and Vanilla Nuts lightly on the brow bone. I also smudged a bit of black liner into my top lash line to make my lashes appear darker and thicker to better fit the smokiness.

Ever since rediscovering Hang Loose in my stash several weeks ago, I've been rocking the slightly shimmery, cool, pale pink flush rather a lot. I think I like it more on me now that I'm at my palest, since I was quite a bit more tanned when I purchased it years ago and rarely reached for it. I find that when the two shades are swirled together, the shimmery lavender adds just the right amount of sparkle and sheen, making Hang Loose one of those highlighter-and-blush-in-one kind of products.

And Sheer Pink Lust. This lipstick is such a staple. See how natural and glossy my lips look? I love how well it complements any look, but especially a heavier eye. And it is so moisturizing.

I really liked that this brown smokey eye had a bit of softness to it, and paired with the baby pink cheeks and lips, it created a romantic look with an edge, rather than an in-your-face going out look.

I'll try to put my Artist's Palette away soon in an attempt to mix up my MFLTW posts, but I can't say it won't be a struggle.

Women spend 474 days put on her makeup

How much time have you put on your makeup before going to work ? According to a new British study , women spend 474 days - one year and three months - put in their lives on makeup and other cosmetics . Phew !Another survey ( carried out by a company deodorant ) found that women spend £ 100,000 ( the equivalent of about $ 164,000 ) to make-up in her life. This is equivalent to $ 65 per week between 16 and 65 years. There is a lot of money and time.But this should be no surprise considering another recent study found that more than two thirds of women are too afraid to go to work without her makeup . They also think is of course on the way to work is a scary job interview, public speaking and a first date. The survey of 3,000 women found that more than half might be fulfilled which can be seen by their friends , family or partner without makeup . But 70 % said they did not want made ​​by their colleagues or bosses without their hair and makeup to see .
In addition, numerous studies have shown that the right amount of makeup at work can make you look competent. Psychologist Celia Bibby said: "Many women feel that it is a shame that with not wearing make -up and their employers can discriminate linked when they no longer at work , you are screwed if you do not " spruced up. " he screwed if you do not do it.
