A few weeks ago I showed what I carry around in my purse. This week we're taking a look inside my makeup bag. This bag is from the Dillard's GWP, it's a Lilly print.
As you can see, I have a wide variety of brands represented.
Foundation - E.L.F., my actual preference is Heather ( a brand in Memphis) but I lost it so this is my temporary hold over. Not bad for a cheap brand
Blush - Hard Candy, one of those four in one blended boxes. This is a cheap knockoff of the benefit offerings, I will not purchase again. I do like the Benefit Dallas
Power - Arbone from a silent auction basket
Eyeshadow - Estée Lauder in the GWP
Lipstick - Estée Lauder in the GWP
Eyeliner - Estée Lauder , was a purchase to get the GWP
Mascara - Estée Lauder in the GWP, I never buy mascara since its always in someone's GWP and they dry up so quickly
Here's a look inside the eyeshadow pallet:
The reason I show these eye shadows is because they're perfect to get the "lilly look" , I can't imagine this was not intentional. Here's a model in what I would call the "lilly look" neutral makeup, dark eyeliner, flushed cheeks, teased hair.
I don't really have the patience to tease my hair so I like to cheat with a bump it. Not everyday and certainly not at the office mind you but sometimes it's fun to put in a little more effort.
The look of the models appears to be inspired by Lilly herself:
This photo is from the auction catalogue from the recent estate sale. May Mrs. Rousseau rest in peace.
Here's my attempt at the "lilly look". I forgot eyeliner and had to improvise with mascarra, which is not the most plesant thing to do but hey, I tried. I wish I had taken a pic another time when I feel I nailed the look a little better.
