I was feeling pretty ick-tastic this morning, and I took a sick day from work. However, I had to run out to go to the bank, get some knee-highs (for work - I go through them like whoa!), and get a new doggy bed for Sparky (his old one is gross!!). I also colored my hair this morning with my lover, L'Oreal Superior Preference. This time I used the shade 10WB.
One of my tricks for at-home hair color is to use similar, but different shades each time (in the same family). I think it brings some dimension to the color, and makes it look more natural.
So, on to the face of the day...
Face: Revlon Colorstay Mineral Mousse Foundation (in 030; I got this yesterday and I'm in LOVE!!), MAC Studio Finish concealer (NW20), MAC MSF Natural (Medium), MUFE HD blush in #14 Star Struck, MAC Shell Pearl Beauty Powder
Eyes: Drink Me, Eat Me e/s from the Urban Decay Alice palette (lid and under eyes); MAC pigments: Sunnydaze (crease, outer V), Naked (highlight under brow), Chocolate Brown (along waterline); MAC Rich Ground fluidline; MUFE Aqua Eyes (gold shade; used on waterline); Stila Topaz eye kajal (inner rims); Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara
Lips: NYX Black Label lipstick in India (added MAC Perennial High Style lipglass later)

nails are Essie Van D'Go (one of my March faves)
I used the Victoria's Secret Heavenly Flowers fragrance mist today, too. It's so pretty and light -- really nice for spring/summer!
Here's a pic of the outfit, too (it hit 90 degrees today!!). I went to Target for a dog bed, but I walked out with a new Liberty dress, too... I think Target + Liberty is probably my favorite collaboration ever (I loved Erin Fetherston for Target and Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper for MAC Viva Glam, too!).
Dress, Necklace: Target (from two years ago - I originally got this to wear in Morocco!)
Bronze Flip-Flops (that you can't see!): Old Navy
Bag (on the floor): Topshop
...this is the Liberty dress. Prrrretty. <3
Off to watch some fabulous Tuesday night television (American Idol, 90210, The Good Wife, Law & Order: Criminal Intent...). See you soon!
