Thanksgiving Looks & Friends

I didn’t bring a lot of makeup with me to Indiana. In fact, I tried to bring as little as possible. I made sure all of my makeup and my brushes could fit into my purse.

Avon 24K Gold lipsticks in Golden Rose and 24K gold.
Too Faced blushes in Lust to Love and Pink Provocateur.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
MAC Eye shadow in Vellum.
Hard Candy eye shadows in Half-Baked and Frigid.
Wet n’ Wild Black Creme Liner.
L’Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base Primer.
Hard Candy Moon Glow Powder.
Hard Candy 1000 Lashes Primer.
Flirt! It Curls Mascara in Bombshell Black.
Urban Decay 24/7 liners in Yeyo & Zero.
Fyrinnae eye shadows in Feline Familiars, Aztec Gold and Strip Poker.
Boots No.7 Radiant Glow Concealer in 1 – Light.
Avon Glimmersticks brow pencil in Soft Black.
Nyx lipliner in Fuchsia.

Wednesday morning, I wore very simple but brightening makeup for my plane ride to Indiana. I didn’t snap a picture (was too nervous, however, there are other pictures in here!), but I wore:

Wednesday
Eyes:
TSFI
Stila Kitten
Physicians Formula Black with Blue Glitter Gel Liner

Cheeks:

After landing in Indiana (and being a bit frazzled from the flight and realizing I felt claustrophobic on the plane) I was surprised to look in the mirror and see that I looked polished. I now understand why women swoon over Stila Kitten. While it’s a boring shade for me for every day (since I enjoy color), it brightened my face and eyes and it’s definitely pretty when you just want to enhance your natural looks.

Thursday:

For Saturday Traveling, I went ultra simple and just used Hard Candy’s Moon Glow Powder all over my face.

Saturday:

Eyes:
TFSI
Hard Candy Moon Glow dusted on lids
Wet n’ Wild Black Creme Liner – upper lashes only
Hard Candy 1000 Lashes Primer
Flirt! It Curls Mascara in Bombshell Black

Cheeks:
Too Faced Lust to Love Blush Duo

Face:
L’Oreal Studio Secrets Primer
Boots No. 7 Illuminating Concealer
Hard Candy Moon Glow Powder

Lips:
Avon 24k Gold Lipstick in Golden Rose

Yes, I wore Golden Rose lipstick every single day. It was my go to lipstick and worked really well to provide me color without being too dark. I trusted Hard Candy’s Moon Glow Powder and L’Oreal’s Studio Secrets Primer to keep my skin looking good, as well as Boots No.7′s illuminating concealer. Urban Decay, Fyrinnae and MAC made my peepers pop, though I’ve gotta give props to Stila Kitten.

I really had a fantastic time in Indiana visiting with my family and friends. It was worth the stress of the flight to go see everyone.

I forgot to take pix of my nails but I wore China Glaze Rodeo Fanatic on my toes. On my tips I wore Finger Paints Butterscotch Cookie and had an accent color of Zoya Blair. Butterscotch Cookie is a golden shade, Blair is a blackened burgundy red, and Rodeo Fanatic is a deep dark teal.

      You look great in all these pics! I especially love the Moon Glow Powder on you. I might have to pick some of that up. Do you like it?

      Glad to hear you had a good time!

      • Phyrra

        I love it! I have a review coming up this week on the Moon Glow Powder.

    • http://www.sarahlicious.com Sarah

      I wanted to say something clever about the amount of makeup you took along – but I couldnt think of anything. So instead – “excellent efficiency!”

      • Phyrra

        Hah! Thanks :)
        I wanted to take more but made myself behave.

    • http://sihayadesigns.com Christina

      Purple/gold is one of my favorite makeup combos, bar none.

      • Phyrra

        Yeah it turned out way prettier than I anticipated!

      I will never not love purple and gold together :) That shade of pink on your lips is lovely! What did you bring with you to keep your hair looking good?

      I was out of town for 2 weeks, so I brought a similar amount of makeup:
      Translucent setting powder, concealer, white eyeliner, grey eyeliner, liquid liner, NYX white jumbo pencil, a pearly shimmery eyeshadow, brow powder, mascara, and Sugarpill’s BH palette. Looking at your pretty gold looks, I wish I had remembered to bring Goldilux too. I totally forgot to bring eye primer, so I made my own every morning when I put on my makeup (concealer and body butter). Kinda worked!

      • Phyrra

        All I did to my hair was:
        1. Flat iron.
        2. TREsemme hair spray

        That’s it :)

        You’re lucky you could make your own primer! My lids are oily, it would have smeared all over.

      I love you’re makeup! In your thanksgiving look I adore your crease color!!!

      • Phyrra

        Thanks Molly!

      The gold lid in Friday’s look is absolutely amazing, it looks like gold leaf on your eyelids!

      Also, (hope I didn’t miss this, going to go back and double check) I’d love to see a review of your new straightener. I’ve been considering the same one and am curious to see how you like it. :)

      • Phyrra
