Public Eye/Private Eye

I love it when Bare Escentuals comes out with kits that have rereleases of old colours that I don't yet have for my collection. There are only thirty or so BE colours that I don't have ... and anytime one does come out I get VERY excited. In this case, it was Charleston that was chosen to be the blast from the past ... and I am completely stoked about it. It is SUCH as great brown.

So here you go ... a neutral look (what ... me ... neutral???) for everyone. Enjoy!

basic face routine
Crushed Velvet blush; used Tapered Blush brush

MAC ShadeStick in Beige-ing over entire eye area; blend with fingers
Gold Leaf dry on browbone and around entire eye area; used Flathead Shadow brush
Charleston dry in crease, lining lower lashline and on outer third of lid; used double ended Shaping Eye brush and Wet/Dry brush
Flaunt dry on inner two thirds of lid; used Wet/Dry brush
Gold Leaf dry on inner third of lid and wrapped around inner corner; used Wet/Dry brush
Lancome Oscillation mascara in black

PUR Minerals burgundy lip liner
MAC Jampacked lipglass

Questions? Comments? Please feel free to post ... thanks for looking!


  1. I sooooo love Charleston! I am excited that they brought this kit out!
    It looks lovely on you!

  2. I am thinking of trying it with Organza, which I think is what it originally came with???? Did you ever wear it that way sis?

  3. Ohhh, I love this kit too - absolutely BEAUTIFUL look hun!!

  4. I am so glad you like it Xena ... everytime I see your name I want to do a warrior princess look ... gonna have to get to that eventually!

  5. Whoops!! So sorry....just catching up with reading and looking!!!
    I did not do Charleston and Organza together even though they came in a kit together.
    I need to see if I saved the insert!! I know I did so I'm gonna have to go dig it out!

  6. OHH, I love this! And I am really getting interested in MAC lip products because of all your pics w/ them. They look great.


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
