Looks I'm Loving Right Now: Day 4

Today's focus is around silvery eyes with a few alternatives in case you can't pull off silvers. I have warmer skin with olive tones and can't always pull off silvery eyeshadows because they make me look tired, but the Dior Smoky Crystal Quint was a surprisingly pretty on! I hope this gives you a few ideas of what types of colors you can use. These may not work for everyone, but these are looks that I've done that work for me.

To recap (in case you haven't read my About Me section), I have dark black/brown hair with red highlights, medium olive/golden skin and use Chanel Shell/Beige Teint Innocence, my eyes are dark brown.

Look Day 4: silvery eyeshadow with rose-pink lips/cheeks

Dolce & Gabbana Desert Bronzer (not swatched)

Recent Sephora Haulings: Urban Decay, Lorac, Benefit, MUFE, Dior

I occasionally stop by Sephora and a couple days ago went to check out the new fall collections and saw they had the new Urban Decay/Dior fall items and picked up Ruthless Eyeshadow and Naked Lipstick and Red Dahlia Nail Polish.

The haul along with some other items I have picked up over the past few months:

Dior Nail Polish in Red Dahlia (Sephora Exclusive) compared with some other fushia-pink-red shades - this is pulling more red in all the photos I've taken. It's most similar to OPI Miami Beet, so you might want to try googling/searching for pics and swatches of that shade to get a better idea:



1. Dior Red Dahlia (bottle shown)
2. OPI Miami Beet (bottle shown)
3. Essie Private Bash
4. Essie Very Cranberry
5. Chanel Shangahi Red



Will be updated soon with comparisons to some true/classic reds so you can see the fuschia tones.
