I’ve written about quite a few drugstore products lately, so I figured I would do a What I’m Wearing Today post featuring three of my favorite high-end beauty bits. I know that these three in particular are quite expensive, but they are investment pieces that do not disappoint – you get what you pay for!
For eyes, I thought I’d switch it up since I have been wearing (and blogging about) the bronze smokey eye all summer long. The sophisticated greens in this Tom Ford Sahara Haze palette are ah-mazing – especially on brown eyes. I took the second lightest shade and washed it all over my lids, smudged the darkest shade on my upper and lower lash lines, and I took what was left on the brush and added a touch of definition in the crease. To brighten up my eyes, I dabbed a bit of the lightest shade on my inner corners.
For blush I chose one of my all-time favorite blushes – Nars’ Deep Throat – a gorgeous coral-pink with a very small amount of shimmer. Nars blushes are just incredible, they are super blendable and buildable. You can take a small amount of product and blend it out for a soft look, or really build up the color for cheeks that pop.
For lips I wanted to go on the pinker side of nude, since I think that pinks and greens compliment each other so well. I went for Giorgio Armani’s Rouge d’Armani in 102, a creamy natural pink-nude. The formula is ultra-creamy and long-lasting, and the color is opaque with one swipe. I also love the packaging with its magnetic closure – very sleek, and you won’t have to worry about the cap falling off in your handbag.
