Look: Gray with Dark Lips

The lips looked great when I looked in the mirror…forgive the close-ups :-) I wore this look on a day when I had to make a really important presentation to the whole faculty! Despite some technical difficulties, it went pretty well. And apparently people think I’m “dressed up” when I wear darker lips. Go figure!

Look: Black Ore Solar Bits

Last summer there was a MAC launch called Neo Sci-Fi. It was an amazing launch with lots of new colors…and these new items called Solar Bits. I got two of them…one of them being Black Ore. They’re basically like pigments, but not as finely milled so they’re a little chunky. I didn’t apply it with any mixing medium, so it settled into the creases of my lids a little. Overall, a very smokey, sultry look!
