The Comfort Zone... (FOTD)

When I'm in a rush, I don't think about what I'm doing as I apply my make-up... I just naturally gravitate towards the same colour combinations, and a few days ago was no different.

I love neutral soft browns, taupes and plums!
I also put on false lashes for the first time in a while, and surprisingly I didn't mess it up :)

NARS Nepal eyeshadow all over the lid
MAC Style Snob eyeshadow in the outer half
MAC Soft Brown eyeshadow in the crease
NARS Cordura eyeshadow in the outer V

Eyeko black liquid liner (was sent to me, and I love it - great staying power)
MAC Feline Kohl Power on waterline
MAC #7 eyelashes

YSL Teint Resist Foundation in #5 mixed with Makeup Forever HD Foundation in #123
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Natural
Bobbi Brown Colour Corrector in Light Peach (under eyes only)
Benefit Powderflage

NARS Laguna Bronzer
Laura Mercier Translucent Powder (T-zone only)
NYC Blushable Cream Stick in Plaza Pink (as a base for blush)
NARS Madly blush

YSL Rouge Volupte in #7
MAC Lipglass in Naked Space

The lip combination turned out great. I love neutralizing something as cool toned as YSL's #7 with a beige-toned gloss like MAC's Naked Space. Sadly Naked Space was limited edition, but I reckon something like C-Thru by MAC would have a similar effect on top.

What colour families do you stick to when you're pressed for time?

  1. Stunning look babe, I need to check out more nars x

  2. It has to be purples for me...I know what I'm doing and I feel confident about it. That's the colour I know best! :-)
    You look so pretty today! the false lashes.

  5. You look gorgeous!!! I've been missing your videos & posts!



  6. Those #7 lashes are gorgeous, this is such a pretty look :)

  7. this is gorgeous! I agree that pairing different tones of lip products actually helps to balance out to color.

  8. I love this look! I gravitate toward neutrals. Like Sable or Satin Taupe and any highlight.

  9. those colors are great on you.. Now I need that lipglass. lol

  10. I'm all about naturals too when I'm in a hurry. Great pics :)

  11. Looks absolutely stunning, thanks for posting!! i love the NYC creme blushes haha.

  12. I love it Sandra! your super talented. I definitely like this look on you. its so toned down and perfect for summer. great job hun.=)

    I love neutrals too.
    You look stunning in the pic!

  14. you look gorgeous! i'm a big fan of neutrals too :)

  15. how are your feelings about the foundations you mixed? i'd love a review!

  16. I tend to grap for browns and light neutrals. I'm trying to add more color into my makeup, but it's so easy to just go with my neutral palletts.

  17. This is a gorgeous look! You look so glowy and fresh :)

  18. You look amazing :)
    When Im in a rush I almost always put just mascara an eyeliner. Then I just tightline and put eyeliner on my waterline. It may be boring, but Im not a morning person so I dont really have much time to put on more make-up than what I do :)
    IF I have time, I reach for my neutrals :)
    I love bright colors, but when I go to work and if I put on some eyeshadows it has to be neutrals :)
