Here are a couple of daytime looks from mineral makeup companies I enjoy using. First up is LaurEss. I think my perfect summer shade is a mix of 75-25 mix of Pure Yellow and Soft Yellow. I think I finally have a match! Although in person, this mix is still a tad too dark especially under natural light. In pictures, though, it seems like a great match.
I am using LaurEss mineral foundation in the ratio aforementioned, DreamWorld creme topping in Butterscotch (clay and silica formula), Dermablend Quick Fix undereye concealer in Ivory, Bare Escentuals Well Rested. I am wearing my MAC mineralize blush in LoveJoy (love it!), MAC 3 Pink Lips lip palette, and MAC Comet Blue dazzleglass.
On to the eyes. I am re-discovering my old Fyrinnae shadows, and I am still very impressed by how pigmented they are. I also tried blending it dry (I used to apply it foiled), and I was amazed at how good it blended with the other shadows. Now if only Fyrinnae's turn-around-time for processing orders isn't that ridiculous. Who knows, I might still order one of these days especially since I don't need to get my hands on them immediately anyway.
This looks a lot brighter in person. I used MAC Beige-ing shadestick as base, MAC Summer Neutral shadow on lid and inner lower lashline, Fyrinnae Irish Moss on crease and outer V and outer lower lashline, MAC Club shadow to contour the crease, MAC Modest Tone shadow above crease, MAC Sunday Best shadow to highlight, MAC kohl power pencil in Jealousy to line, MAC Graphblack technakohl liner to tightline and waterline.
I also tried some of Dayna's Minerals shadows, and I was sooo impressed with the beautiful colors and awesome texture. She sent me free samples of these, and I am really planning to order full sizes. They really look pretty and they look polished and professional when worn in the office.
I am wearing MAC Beige-ing shadestick as base, Dayna's Minerals eyeshadows in Showin' Some Skin foiled on lid and inner lower lashline, Empress' New Clothes foiled on mid-lid blending into Showin' Some Skin, and Winey foiled on outer lid and crease and on outer lower lashline. I used MAC shadow in Femme-Fi to highlight, Graphic Brown fluidline, and Brownborder Technakohl to tightline and on waterline.
