Hey pretties! I did this look on Sunday when out to brunch with hubby and a close couple friends of ours and their 9-months old baby. It was a beautiful sunny day too though still cool and I decided to wear a spring appropriate smokey eye using duochrome shades. Oh and do you guys know if Blue Brown pigment is DC'd or not? I don't see it on the site. I'm so glad I have a half jar of it still.

Btw, I posted my blog sale last night and you can find it in the post below. Please check it out and help me get rid of this stuff. Even if there's nothing you like, you can still help by RT'ing or mentioning it in your blogs. Thanks in advance for your help.


Here's the look breakdown:

I'm liking my new hair regiment these days. I naturally have a lot of wavy hair but they are on the finer side. So now I put some Moroccanoil in then french braid them when they're wet and sleep in them to get more body and thickness when I open the braids in the morning.

I like this method as I don't like using heating tools or a lot of products on my hair. Here's a picture of the back:

The outfit for the brunch was a maxi dress I picked up at Charlotte Russ in the US last year plus a white denim Gap jacket (not worn in picture). I also wore flat Gap sandals from last year:

    Fabriazia - thanks hun, will check you out :)

    Maya - Nars has only one shade designed for us light medium ladies and it seems to fit anyone in the NC/NW20-NC/NW25-NC/NW30 range as this is a light foundation. So you should be fine :)

    Tali - thanks love, I think it still has waaaays to grow :)
