Face of the Day with The Yves Saint Laurent Pure Chromatics #12 Palette

After I raved about the smoky eye perfection that is the YSL Pure Chromatics #12 palette from the Holiday 2012 collection I thought it only fair to show you it’s beauty in action. For this look I applied all but the top left shade ,which I used in my crease, wet.

Products Used:

Ellis Faas S101 foundation
Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat #2
Fresh Face Lustre Fair Isle

Yves Saint Laurent Blush Radiance Radiant Blush #6 (review to come)

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Edward Bess Nude
Yves Saint Laurent Pure Chromatics Palette #12
MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Eyes 21L Eyeliner
Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara Black

Giorgio Armani Gloss d’Armani #509 Pink Quartz 

Sorry I somehow didn’t notice the random specs of mascara until after I took pics. Doh!

    I love this look on you- slightly soft, but still has impact. Your use of the quad is flawless and I adore that blush on you.
