Fotd | Shimmer, taupe and pink…

by Jess on Monday, April 25th, 2011 · 25 comments

Hello! Happy Easter everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful long Easter weekend!

Today, I’m posting about a very simple look using the Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N ~ 13 Antique Chiffon on my eyes. Cheeks and lips are going to be pink! Bright pink! I think, you might have guessed based on the post title, haven’t you? :)


The products I used…

. Dior Diorskin Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen ~ Candle Light 002
. MAC Studio Moisture Tint SPF 15 ~ Light
. Lancome Ageless Minérale Perfecting and Setting Powder ~ Translucent

. MAC Prep+Prime Eyes ~ Light
. Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color N ~ 13 Antique Chiffon
. RMK Brown Eyes ~ 01 Deep Brown
. MAC Fluidline ~ Blitz & Glitz (not in photo)
. Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara (not in photo)

. Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush ~ 02 Pink
. Dior Sérum De Rouge ~ 240 Pink Coral Serum



Here is the finished look! Thumbs up for my uneven eyebrows again, haha…! I just hate days, when I can not manage to make my eybrows look even! Anyone else having this issue sometimes? :)

Antique Chiffon is a really beautiful taupe color with the most amazing shimmer to it! I love the jelly-like consistency and the scent of Jill Stuart’s makeup products so much!


Whoa, I can’t believe that my eyelashes were so well behaved that day! You know, lots of times, they are just stubborn and droopy, no matter how much effort I pay with my eyelash curler or how cautious I apply mascara!


Whenever I’m lazy or short of time, I would go for a very simple and quick eye makeup by using two shades only. A lighter shade for the entire eye area and a darker shade for adding some depth. My simple everyday go-to look!


  • Jill Stuart Jelly Eye Color allover my lids
  • deep brown color of the RMK palette along the lashline and on the outer corners
  • tight-line with MAC Fluidline ~ Blitz & Glitz
  • curle the lashes and applied mascara


Giorgio Armani Sheer Blush ~ 02 Pink on my cheeks! I love love love this blush!!! Not only does it give me the cutest and also most natural pink flush ever, it also gives me a sheen that seems to come from within! Haven’t read my review on this blush yet? Read about it in this post!

Dior Sérum De Rouge ~ 240 Pink Coral Serum on my lips! I think, I got the perfect combo! What do you think?

Anyone noticed my little layout tweak? I think, I’m seriously obsessed with fonts and color schemes! It’s crazy how many hours I spend just on ‘playing’ around with different fonts and color schemes! Gosh… my poor eyes! o.O

My comment was I love your look definitely, your eyebrows look fine and natural to me.
GA blush and Dior Coral pink match you well. How I wish I have fairer skin likes yours.

The JS Jelly Eye Colors are really unique! Do check them out! Two shades only already make a big difference to the appearance of the eyes, don’t you think so? ;)
