FOTD / Mini Review: Natural Faced

I didn't want to get ready at home today, so I started off with my foundation, concealer and HD powder at home, and some Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer for a contour.  I waited until I got to work to play.

I started with my eyes because I didn't know what I wanted to do with my face, so I used the Naked 2 palette.  I had put on the Benefit Stay Don't Stray primer at home about an hour or so beforehand and let me just say, IF you don't use shadow over it immediately, it creases.  What a bummer.  I only used the brush that comes with the Naked 2 palette and I have mixed feelings on it.  I used the Foxy in the inner corner and as my brow highlight.  I used the gorgeous Tease all over the lid, concentrating it right in the center of the lid.  I used Pistol as my inner crease color and Blasted as the outer crease color.  I deepened the outer v with Blackout, and popped some Verve over the ball of my eye (right in the center of the lid) and just a tiny touch in the very inner corner to open my eyes a bit.  I used Perversion on my upper and lower waterlines, letting it smudge out a bit on the bottom.  I used Benefit's They're Real mascara for the first time ever and I have mixed feelings on it as well.

For my face, I used NARS blush Mata Hari with New Order as a highlight.  I put on Urban Decay's All Nighter setting spray, another first, and was pleasantly surprised by how refreshing it was.  I used an Urban Decay gloss, though now I don't remember which one.  Something with surprisingly little color payoff (though it does feel pretty, haha).
