Sweets to the sweet look

Hi guys!

So here is the look I wore the other night to dinner. 

I was trying to capture something soft and 19th century romantic. So, while looking through one of my art history books, I drew inspiration by a painting by Hans Makart and some chocolates...I know what you're thinking..."chocolates" but it will all make sense in the end...or at least I hope it will :P


 Yes, I need to do my roots but I haven't had the time, and I like that grown out roots look anyway.


Look Breakdown
Face 
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Santa Fe (Medium 2).
Shu Uemura Hard Formula brow Pencil in Seal Brown.
Mac blush in tenderling.
Eyes:
Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener
Mac Studio Sculpt Concealer in NW25
Mac Eye Shadow in Jest (All over the lid).
Mac  Eye Shadow in Shag (in the crease).
Mac Eye Shadow in Corduroy (in the outer V and the lower lashline).
Mac Eye Shadow in Handwritten (used to line the upper lashline).
Mac Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Tendered (lower waterline).
Mac Plush Lash Mascara (upper and lower lashes). 
Lips
Mac lipstick in Viva Glam III. 

Got home, slipped into a rocker-t, about to wash my face when I decided to take a pic with this AWESOME chocolate goodness!! I fear for my waist line  :(

This is the other influence for my look.


The night before, my good friend Naoki stopped by to drop off  some gifts from his recent trip to Vienna, Austria. I had no idea that he was even out of the country. if I had known, I would have given him an extensive list of goodies to bring back. He got me these Mozartkugeln chocolates by Victor Schmidt. Naoki was surprised that I knew of these chocolates and had had them before. Actually, he was probably more in shock, since I kept screaming "Oh my god, I love these chocolates, over and over again :P   There was a website on the back of the box: www.manner.com, so now I can stock up on these yummy bon bon's of joy whenever I like! 

Hope you enjoyed this post! 

Looking gorgeous one lipstick (and a few chocolates) at a time.

  2. Thank you for the comment Charisse :) If by "CP" you mean cosmetic products (Sorry for my ignorance), of course I'm serious :) I'm not sure where you're getting products now or how much you're paying for them but I'd be more than willing to help :D
