    That yaby shadow under your eyes is duo-chrome? It’s so unique and pretty!

    Wow that blue eyeshadow on your lower lash line really makes your eyes pop! It looks very similar to MAC pigment Blue Steel.

    I like the chocolate brown and mint green together, it is very understated.

  • Reply Phyllis October 25, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    Thanks Citrine! The Midnight Blue is a silvery blue color that flashes green.

    Ok I just found your blog and I’ll be checking it often! Thanks! I love that you’re sharing all your makeup secrets! You look great! But you’re starting off with a naturally beautiful face – which helps… not every girl has that going for them… Thanks so much for sharing!

    Such a pretty look! you’re gorgeous! i bought nars brousse after seeing you use it, but when i applied it on myself it looks muddy and greyish. did you apply it wet or anything? it shows up so beautifully on you.

    Thanks KaraDee =)

    Thanks Tiffany! I didn’t apply the Brousse wet but I did use a primer underneath. The same eyeshadow can show up very differently on different person because of a difference in skintone.
