FOTD with my new stuff & St. Moriz Self Tanning!

Natalie Thursday, August 6, 2009
I've been using my MAC Dainty Blush and Love Connection Mineralize eyeshadow, and I'm really liking them! I thought Dainty would be more of a baby pink.. but its like a peachy pink. No complaints though :) And love connection is very pretty. If you use the whitish colored side.. its like a shimmery taupe.. and if you combine them, you're left with a very shimmery bronze. This would even be pretty on your cheeks! You need a base though because when i swatched this on my hand, i took my other hand and wiped it off.. and it all came off in one wipe. To me, its like a compacted shimmery pigment. I didn't use a base though and it was fine. Next time I'll use one.

Here it is swatched on my hand:


And here goes my face of the day..

 Self Tanner Update: I really, really love St. Moriz self tanner. If you are able to get your hands on a bottle, you should definitely try it.. and it's so cheap! I've been using it since I bought it, and you can really control your level of darkness. One thing I really like about it, is when I shower and scrub it off.. I don't have to scrub so hard and get my skin all red like I do when removing SUN labs self tanner. This comes off pretty easily. I guess that could be a good or bad thing. Bad because if you shower in the morning, bye bye most of your tan. I shower at night, so I don't wash the color guard off in the morning.. and its not streaky at all. When I applied it, it looked very streaky.. but within a minute.. it all settled in my skin and seemed to blend together itself! One thing I also like about this is, I can apply it to my face during the day and run errands and not look like a mud monster. It gives me a pretty bronzed color. I've ran errands with SUN on my face and it has much more of a green hue.. and I looked a little crazy. So yes, thumbs up for this!

here I am after I just applied the self tanner to my face, neck and chest with a fluffy powder brush. I have no tan on my skin prior. I didn't apply anything to my arm to show the difference. My tan of course looked better in the morning.. but i wanted to just show you a quick visual of what it looks like after applied. :) I don't have a picture from the morning.. gahh i couldn't find my battery charger.
