Picture 0062Picture 0071Yet another warm day in DC. Didn't even wear a coat, just brought along my pashmina for the commute.

Green and ivory print silk shirtdress from Banana Republic, brown suede slouchy boots from Silhouettes, gold bangles from Ralph Lauren, gold hoops and necklace.

Hair is second day, a few pieces twirled around a curling iron and then finger-combed. a touch of Jonathan Silky Dirt to set.

Makeup is L'Oreal True Match concealer in W1-3, Benefit That Gal on cheekbones, philosophy The Supernatural in Beige, Cargo Matte BeachBlush in Tenerife, Revlon colorStay shadow quad in Neutral Khakis – ivory in inner corners, olive on lid and along lash lines. Lashes curled, two coats of CoverGirl Lash Blast in black, small amount of black pencil (Body Shop) along lower lash line; lips is Revlon Shiny Sheers in Sheer Cocoa Glaze.

    I too found it only in an XL and it was waaay too big. Then I saw it online and ordered it lickety-split because I didn’t see it online the week prior. I still need to get the sleeves shortened!

    And Larissa, I have done a few eye posts… I need to update my links or categories so it’s easier to search on here. here’s one with the Revlon ColorStay shadow quad and here’s one where I am demoing a brush kit to achieve a smokey eye.

    Hi, Allie! Have you ever considered writing a post (with pictures) on how you apply your make up in the morning? Your eyes always look great, and I think I am a bit make up skills deficient. Just a thought!
