Yummy411: Less than 10 minute face and You Don't Know Jacque!

I thought I had a 5 minute face down, but I don't think the five minute face addresses all of my needs. So in another attempt to make me feel a little bit better about my rushed face, I had to devise another plan... AHA! Reference my quick define and brighten eye guide and go from there!
Here's the less than 10 minute face!




























1. Reference the quick brighten and define eye guide (I used one concealer,
Dermablend in Tan for under eyes, lid and under brow arch.)
2. Take your #217 fluffy brush and sweep Cork in the crease ever so lightly.
I used cork and bronzer. (Brought Magic Dust e/s up on lid a bit to keep it bright.)
3. I lined my waterline with Stubborn brown liner
4. Applied MAC blot powder to t-zone. (Did I ever mention how amazing this product is?)
5. Used MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Loose Powder Foundation all over face
(put this baby back in rotation!)
4. Bronzer- Cover Girl Mineral bronzer-around perimeter of face and cheeks.
5. Cargo blush in Rome on apples of cheeks.
6. Finish look with VG5 lipglass!




My Twitter peeps can appreciate this one. If you follow me, you know I've been trying to get to the nail shop. I made it! I took my Gunmetal Gray with me that we decided on in Twitter discussion, but lo and behold OPI's You Don't Know Jacques was in! I haven't ordered it yet, so I took the chance while it was available!



Only a blogger would do this right? Shamelessly show my sausages online... Here's the pedi. I've been obsessing over a bubble gum cream pink the whole summer. While in NY, I saw a diva chic with it on and asked Yannize about it. She recommended Essie's Fiji, but I picked up Muchi Guchi Puchi instead. Is this a match Yannize? Man people were hardcore on Fall in the nail shop, "Oh no that's bright. It's Fall, give me black!" I didn't think anyone outside of us bloggers cared that much.. Oh well, my pretty pink will be covered anyways...

What polish are you wearing?

Loving the gray polish and I always do bright summer shades on my toes in the fall/winter. I'm getting my fall mani next week, I'm leaning towards one of the Sephora OPI colors.

Your 10-minute face is flawless! And uhhh...I have that "You Don't Know Jacques" and I just can't get used to it. It looks soooo fugly on my nails. I think I'll try again this weekend. I'm actually giving my nails a break this week with zero polish and can't think of what I'll wear next. And I looove that pretty pink. I'm rockin' one like that on the toes too. LOL, don't be callin' your feet sausages. You a mess!

Erin said...

I love that gray color! I am going to invest in that soon. Your should also try Eiffel for Color by OPI. Such a HOT very dark purple color.

Jamie @ Rural Glamour said...

First, Thanks you for the fab love you gave via the email!!! I haven't hit that Sephora in a minute!!

There's that Gray polish for OPI again)...It looks good on everybody but me. I told Mischo@ Mischo Beauty that it looked like murky pond water on me. BUT I'm going to give it another try...

I'm wearing Eiffel For This Color from that same collection on hands.

Alyssia said...

Love the eyes...I think that what I miss when tryin to perfect my 5-minute face. I usually slap on mascara and a brow highlight and keep it moving. I'll have to try ur method! =)

Alyssia said...

Oooh cute stuff!

I'm wearing OPI Moon Over Mumbai on the toes and I was wearing CG's Recycle on the fangas. But now I'm wearing nothing. I have 8 new polishes, still debating...

Oh I love that gunmetal grey! So cute!

I'm wearing a gorgeous vampy red with a plum tone on my nails, and on the lookout for a new bottle of Chanel Rouge Noir. :)

Hey Yummy!

I am currently wearing Parelz-Vous OPI on my feet, but I am about to bust out OPI's Eiffel for this Color on my hands and feet. I can't wait! I will do a twitpic...if I every figure it out!

Love your makeup by the way. It looks so flawless and beautiful!

Miss Anjela said...

I had to take notes on your 5 minute face...love the polishes too...pink and gray, huh? Pretty! I'm wearing Revlon's Vixen (vampy blood red) on my toes and a simple French manicure...I'm thinking about switching over to China Glaze's Anklets of Amethyst though...it's a sparkly purple!

SuzieC said...

Love the 10 minute face and the grey polish! Maybe I will go ahead and get it. Right now I have on my nails I have Sally Hansen's Spark which looks purple in the bottle but came out blue...don't know how I feel about it yet. On my toes nada. I don't feel like doing them, I think I'm going to do clear.

MandyPandy said...

I love OPI's new French collection! My favorite is 'Tickle My France-y'. It's a great nude and probably works for a large range of skin tones; it looked great on me (an NC27) as well as on my sister, who's an NC43.

Sunshyne said...

OMG I love the gunmetal!! Your nails are so pretty. Its perfect for fall.
