The Demure lady from Pacific Heights wore Shantung

In person, this look is SO soft and feminine, and I felt happy using these colors after a series of harsher, bolder looks. If I were to change this look at all, it would be to use Plum eyeliner instead of the Stone color that I used, to make it even softer.  I used three coats of Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara, but only because my little mini tube of it that I’m using is starting to dry up. I actually like the effect of it – because just a little product is applied for each coat, it really held the integrity of my lashes without any clumping. I felt like I had soft, luscious lashes today without being overly dark or dramatic (like I’ve been known to do once or twice…).

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
