Sunday Stash Shopping #52: Benefit Bossy

I was de-cluttering and found an old eye shadow I bought because of Lisa Eldridge. She seems to have the ability to make me buy all sorts of things I don’t need. Anyone here with the same problem? I’m much better now though. This is one of the products she said she loved on eye brows. An old Benefit eye shadow, Bossy. It’s a matte shadow, and it’s a cool dark brown which pulls ashy. The thing about this shadow is, it also looks good on its own for a simple understated look. I’m all for simple and almost there makeup. I like mine a little undone – not too done up, you know? Something that might take a little bit of effort, but not trying too hard. This is easy. I made a pretty good dent in this eye shadow, but it’s getting old, so I’ll be tossing this out soon.

For today’s look, I only used 5 products.

 

 

products used

 

 

One is the Dior makeup base I’m trying to use up, Benefit Bossy on my brows and lids, mascara (actually, it’s Estee Lauder’s black lash primer), blush (Chanel Frivole) and lipstick (Chanel Liberte). The Dior Radiant Base 002 evens out my skin tone, enough for me to skip foundation. I think I have 2/3 left of the bottle. Keep it up, Lily *pats self on the back* I’ve also been skipping powder because my skin’s been acting weird. Sometimes it’s dry, sometimes it’s oily. Anyhoo…

Here’s the finished look. Bossy seems to look cooler on my lids and warmer on my brows. I didn’t realize that until I saw these photos. See? FOTDs actually do help 🙂 I have naturally lopsided brows. One is higher and the other is lower. One has an arch while the other is straighter. Story of my life. So I usually use pencil to try to balance them out. It’s difficult using just powder but for this post, I’ll just leave my brows looking weird. Who needs perfectly balanced brows, right?

Erm yeah… bags and dark circles. I figured I could’ve used some concealer there, but heck, I’ve been lacking sleep because I’m taking care of a baby, and proud of it! Eeps, I think I also see some flakes on my nose. Gah… whatever!

Hope you liked today’s look. What have you been wearing the past couple of weeks?
