Today's Look | Crazy Over Carmen.

After professing my new-found love for Carmen Rose, it is only proper for me to do an FOTD entry for it. Hence, this post.

Because this lipstick is a bold shade of red (maybe a bit too bold for some), I had to tone it down with my eyeshadow. That's the rule of thumb - dark / bold lipstick go with light eyeshadows, and vice versa.

Pale pink and light green eyes + fiery red lips.
I jazzed up my eyes a bit by doing that little upward 'swoosh' towards the end of my lash line. You might not notice it, but I'm using a different shade of liquid eyeliner here. It's Avon's Extralasting Liquid Eyeliner in Shimmering Dune (aka brown). I'll do a swatchfest-slash-product review next time.

Pretty subtle colors, save for the lipstick that screams attention. :)
What I used:

Skin Food Good Afternoon BB Cream in Rose Lemon Tea
Avon Ideal Shade Concealer Stick in Almond
Ever Bilena Advance Perfect Eye Concealer in Light
Avon Ideal Luminous Dual Powder Foundation in Shell
Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Candy Sweets
Ever Bilena Eyebrow Liner in Brown
Avon Extralasting Liquid Eyeliner in Shimmering Dune
Kohl Royal Selections Eyeliner in Arctic Frost
Avon Super Curlacious Waterproof Mascara in Black
Tony Moly Cheek Tint #1 Cherry Pink
Jordana Double Length Lip Liner in Rose
Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Rose Lipstick in Carmen Rose

I love the effect I'm getting from Skin Food's Good Afternoon BB Cream whenever I go for the 'barely there' makeup look. I'm now set to buy a full-sized tube of it as soon as it becomes available again with my favorite eBay seller. :)
