Face Of The Day (FOTD) - featuring NARS Sheer Glow MACAO

My region is being inundated with seasonal snow, freezing rain, sleet, and ice.
I felt like wearing bright eyeshadow today.
I also wanted a chance to play with my new NARS Sheer Glow foundation.

The foundation sometimes photographs in a weird way.
In person, however, I found it to be really natural. I asked my husband what he thought of my new foundation and he told me he didn't think I was wearing any. Ah yes! Success! That was the effect I was going for. *smiles*

Despite the inconvenience of the inclement weather, I managed to create some sunshine for myself.
It doesn't take much to lift my spirits when it comes to makeup.

Do you ever change your mood by experimenting with makeup?


  1. sooo pretty! I wish I was snowed in! & btw i LOVE the nars foundation, do u think it covers problem areas well or is it more on the sheer side? Is it buildable so you can cover any areas if needed?

  2. @ Prettyfulz...Thanks so much for the compliments. I like snow, but after a week or more of it, it gets kind of ugly in the city. (dirty) LOL. Funny you should ask. I did the MAC Select SPF today & it failed to cover a new acne scar. If I built up the MAC foundation, it would look cakey. Not cute. I just dabbed a little of the NARS Sheer Glow on it & it provided adequate coverage without looking cakey. AWESOME!

  3. U look absolutely stunning dear,love ur eyeshadow colour combo=Pretty!!!!! Nars looks flawless on u

  4. Love the fabulous look and the foundation looks amazing on your skin. I need to try it but being I need full coverage, hopefully it works well on me. Will try a sample first in it from Sephora.
    Loving the colors on your eyes too dear.

  5. @ kimmydadiva...Thank you so much for the compliments & taking the time to view & comment.

  7. @ Makeup4play...Thank you girl! I appreciate your comment.
