NARS Pleasures of Paris: 2 Looks!

Thanks for all the positive feedback on my last FOTD! :D Maybe it's the way I crop my photos, but in real life, I'm not cute. Anyone having a get-together? I'm not coming. :) Thanks gals~

This bear was a gift from the fiance for my b-day last year.  He sits next to my makeup hehe ~ :)

The NARS palettes usually contain 1 color that I wouldn't use, but all the colors in 9951 Pleasures of Paris (or Doucers de Paris) are great, go-to shades for me~

Look #1: Soft Plum~  Used a lavender cream base just for kicks (from Stila - will show later!) and the following shadows:

Hmm, Blogger totally washed out my photos! :/

Can you make out the purple?

Heh! A bit cross-eyed in this photo! xD

You can see the purple-y tones better here, no?

Look at the greenish lighting!  O_o  I included this photo b/c you can see my blush here quite well. Again, it's the Shiseido blush duo - I still haven't found a new blush yet.

Look #2:  Soft Warm Bronze~ Using the following shadows, no color base:

Sorry, my hair's kind of messy...

I cleaned up my brows - can you tell? Probably not haha~ I'm still working on it...

Some shininess on the forehead... and the reddish area next to the mole is a new pimple! :(

More 1/2 face photos! xD

Peek-a-boo !

NARS is very pigmented, but you can be light-handed and create very soft looks.  Hope everyone enjoyed! :)

    you shouldnt crop your pics, more flace plz :D your fiance is sweet! EOTD subtle and pretty :)

    I advise in using flickr to upload and post pics.. because it also washed out the NARS blush i uploaded initially and I thought wow.. it does NOT look like that.. Flickr solved the problem right out :)

    I agree NARS shadows are pigmented.. I havent touched my NARS eye palette in a long time - thanks for reminding the existent of that palette haha.

    awww that's really sweet of your fiance! Takes a bit for men to do stuff like that (or from my experiences anyway).
    Don't say that, of course you're cute. I can see a little smile peeking from your pictures. That to me is very cute. :)
