FOTD with Benefit and Urban Decay

First off, I need to start blogging more.  It's mostly taking pictures that represent the makeup well and then uploading them that sets me back.  Maybe I should learn more about my fancy camera!

Foundation: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua B30
Concealer: MAC Studio Finish NW15
Powder: MAC MSF Light Plus
Bronzer: Victoria's Secret Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder Glowing, Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
Blush/Highlight: Smashbox Soft Lights Shimmer

Shadow: MAC Paint Pot Soft Ochre (all over), Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow Birthday Suit (all the way to brow bone), Too Faced Cocoa Puff (on lid and blended into brow bone), Urban Decay Busted (as liner and in the outer corners)
Mascara: Urban Decay Supercurl Curling Mascara
Brows: MAC Impeccable Brow Pencil Taupe

My lips were suprisingly hydrated so when this happens I just let the MSF Light Plus graze them and it always delivers a soft nude look.  It also lasts for a while too.

I promise I'm happy, I'm just growing out of that myspace teen phase of enjoying taking pics of myself.

Update on my hair
This was the first round of highlights I did by myself.  I'm going for the balayage look so I'm  doing this slowly.  The FOTD pics are of the second round of highlights which I am extremely pleased with.  One more round in the near future and I'll be done for a little while.  I just can't escape the light haha.  I rarely enjoy myself with all dark hair.  I had a good base to work with though thanks to my hair colorist!

Your eyebrows are perfect! :)
Wish I could get mine to look like that!

Thanks Natasha! I don't always fill in my eyebrows, but when I do, I start a quarter inch into my brow so the hair between my eyes remains untouched and the brows end up looking more natural.
