FOTD Springtime in February...

Above: Jane Iredale Circle/Delete, Hourglass Ambient Light Powder, Billion Dollar Brows Hint of Tint, By Terry Sheer Expert, Sisley blush Pinky Coral,  Rouge Bunny Rouge Megaplumes Mascara, Rouge Bunny Rouge Bronzing, Powder, Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner and Makeup Geek lipstick.

The burgeoning springtime (and inordinately sunny day yesterday) has inspired my latest FOTD.  Even skin, flushed cheeks and a pure pink pout were achieved with ten products (pictured above)!  

Kindly scroll on for more details and images...

Above: Product swatches in direct sunlight.

Products Used:

1. By Terry Sheer Expert in #7 Vanilla Beige
3. and 4. Jane Iredale Circle/Delete Concealer in #1 (two shades)
9. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Intense Black
10. Makeup Geek lip color in Innocent

The next four images picture the products in action...springtime is almost here!

Above:  I am really enjoying the light, yet flawless coverage of  By Terry Sheer Expert in #7 (review soon!)

Above: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner is amazing...it dries instantly and doesn't transfer or budge until removed.

Above: Makeup Geek lipstick in Innocent is a creamy peachy pink that isn't matte or shiny, just naturally flushed.

Above: The warmth of yesterday's sunlight is a harbinger of the weather to come.

Bottom Line: The ten products I used for this FOTD are a joy to work with...clean, simple, glowing and flushed, this is the efflorescence of springtime makeup!

What are some of your favorite products right now?

  2. They all look beautiful. I am very curious about the Hourglass Diffused Light. I might bite the bullet and get one. I am also curious about RBR Megaplumes mascara in burgundy. Did you try that one? I just did a post on my makeup bag ( no FOTD though ) Great post :) Thx

    1. Thank you, ChicScience...the Diffused Light can do no wrong in my book...feather light and invisible, yet entirely perfecting!!

      I haven't tried the Megaplumes in Burgundy yet, but hope to be able to in the near future...it looks marvelous!!

      Hope all is well...xoxo,

  4. Dear Professor,

    I wear the same shade in by Terry but it might be a tad too neutral on me, is that even possible to be "too neutral"? lol... I am on an eternal quest for the right foundation, I feel like Sisyphus! As usual, your color choices are perfect and in that last picture, it's as though there's a halo above you! It may be a harbinger of fair weather to come in southern CA, but here in the mid-west, we are expecting a blizzard tonight.

    Stay warm,
    She

    1. Hello She's Chic,

      Good to hear from you...I hope you are safe and sound in the midst of a potential blizzard! I can completely relate to the Sisyphean task of finding the perfect foundation...it may never occur but at the least the journey is more enjoyable than pushing a stone up a hill ; ) I know what you mean about the #7 By Terry being a bit too neutral...I almost wish it was a hair more yellow, but I appreciate its balanced tone now that I am at my lightest. Thank you for your kind words about my picture...the light in my backyard was otherworldly that afternoon!

      Have a wonderful week and talk soon!

      xoxo,
