Benetint and Eclipse Fashion!

Let me start off by saying I Love Benefit products .. it could be a result of working for Benefit Cosmetics for 2-3 years in the ast  .. or its because they have absolutely fantastic products.. I used to use Benetint (it is a steamed rose petal stain that was originally made for a stripper nipples but in present times it is used for long lasting lip and cheek color) very often and I just forgot about it for the last couple years; until the other day I was running late for work and didnt want to go to work w/ no make-up on (because then I look 14); I put on a little bit of concealer under my eyes (due to my genetic dark circles.. thats what I get for being indian :p) ..some mascara and Benetint on my lips ..a couple layers to get the color a bit more intense.. I added a little glosss over it and I was all set!

yes yes underneath all the bronzers ..foundations.. and self tanners.. i am just a pale kid but over the years i'v learned to work with what i'v got :o)

I am just sooo freakin excited for June 30th to come already!!... whats june 30th??? 
Eclipse!!!!  I am such a fan of twilight as you can probably tell by reading my previous posts ;p ..  OK now get this.. Nordstrom is going to have their very own line of Eclipse inspired clothes!! I am so excited can pre-order now on .. they even have lifesize cutouts of Jacob..Bella..Alice and Edward .. but I dont know about all that.  I did like some of the sweatshirts and tanks tho.. They also have the Luna Twilight make-up line on there .. I havent tried any of the products yet but I might have to =o

Did i mention I am sooooo excited?!

Who doesnt like a simple smokey eye?

Sometimes I feel like a smokey eye using different shadows is too harsh during the day especially if I am going to be out doors.  So the other day I was in a hurry and did a quick smokey eye w/ just a few things and I actually liked it a lot (pics taken on my way usual). 

So I put on my Make Up For Ever mat velvet+ foundation (because it was going to be a hot day); I set it with a little but of MAC blot powder in medium . A  put a little concealer under my eyes and urban decay primer potion to prime my lids. Then I used a highlighter under my brows and a brown on my lid up into my crease (I want to say i used soft brown by MAC). 

I then lined my upper and lower waterline with urban decay 24/7 eye pencil in zero. Then took a hard angled brush and smudged feline khol power eye pencil all around my lid.  IMPORTAIN PART: lots and lots of mascara ..I used Diorshow extase ... OMG freakin lllooooovvvvveee it!!! (at the end of the day it comes off so easily too)

I finished off the look w/ a little too faced sun bunny bronzer and Tarina Tarantinos leatherette lipstick (w/ clear gloss over it) on my lips :o)
