A quick FOTD (face of the day) - May 2011

This has been one of my go-to looks this month and last month - and it's what I am wearing in my most recent hair tutorial video.
I've been experimenting with my newly purchased Dior Amber Diamond highlighter and so far I really enjoy it so expect to see it in any upcoming Face of the Day posts.

Wearing Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation (in shade #5 mixed with Makeup Forever HD in shade #123). Set with MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark (which, as you can see, does absolutely nothing for oil control haha).
Benefit Hoola Bronzer, L'Oreal True Match Blush (in shade W3-4 "barely blushing"), and a little bit of Dior Amber Diamond on the top of the cheekbone.
On the lips I am wearing Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy.

I wore Estee Lauder DoubleWear Cream Eyeshadow in Silver Leaf all over the lid as a base followed with Benefit Eyeshadow in "Where There's Smoke" in the outer half of my eye and on the lower lashline. In the inner corner of my eye I used the 2 lightest shades in the Dior Amber Diamond highlighter and blended them towards the middle.
Shu Uemura Painting Liner in black to line the eyes and I smudged it with my finger a little bit. I also used Diorshow Extase mascara.

What's your go-to look lately?


  1. I waaaaant that Chanel lipstick so bad! x

  2. I cannot wait for your review on the CD amber diamond! I want it so bad...But i also want a product that can give me a bronze glowy fresh look to the cheeks, i hope it better be that one :p Loved the look, your skin looks so good.

  3. wow... I absolutely love your hair color in those pictures!this auburn looks gorgeous... did you dye it?

  4. I love the cheek and lip combo.
    Gorgeous! X

  5. My everyday go to look recently has been involving Smashbox lipgloss in Pixel and their tinted moisturizer.
    The lipgloss goes with absolutely everything and the moisturizer provides excellent coverage but still looks and feels light enough for Spring/Summer. And of course, no mascara goes on without my Shu Uemura eyelash curler!

  6. You kinda look like Pippa Middleton!

    Love love love your blog!


  7. Really lking forward to your Dior review, I swatched it today at the counter, and it is really smooth and creamy. I'm tempted! But will wait for your review first....!

  8. I just bought Amber Diamond today and can't beleive I waited so long to get it. Everytime I see a post where you wear silver leaf, it makes me want to hunt it down but I think it's been discontinued for so long. It looks gorgeous.

  9. You're gorgeous! I stumbled upon your blog and love it! Love this look, very elegant and simple. :)

  10. You look gorgeous Sandra xx
