In order to avoid the difficulty of scheduling a holiday party, my fiancee’s employer has a post-holiday party every year.  The party was last weekend, and here are some photos of the makeup I used and the final result.

Since I got ready at night, I had to take the photos with flash; I prefer natural light, but these came out surprisingly well, though I do look a bit, ah, dewier than I did in person!

The first photo in the post contains almost all of the makeup items I used; I’m also wearing MUFE HD foundation; NYX Taupe blush (to contour), and Anastasia Brow Powder Duo (which I just forgot to photograph).  I might be wearing concealer, but I don’t remember.

Most of my makeup is pretty self-explanatory, so I won’t go into detail.  For the lips, I used YSL Glossy Stain 1 (Violet Edition) as a stain – a single layer – then went over it with Glossy Stain 4 (Mauve Pigmente) to add shine. I really like the final result; it’s not quite as deep in color as wearing 1 Violet Edition all by itself.


  • You look gorgeous as always! I love the lip combination.

  • I love the cheek products you’ve put together. Really suits you!
