This has been a productive week for me makeup wise. I'm waking up early enough to do my face and yet not be late for work. For this look I really wanted to use my MAC Melon pigment which is such a gorgeous shade and I don't use it nearly as much as I should. Melon was one of my first pigments and I still think it is one of the best as it's truly multi-purpose, gorgeous on eyes, lips and cheeks.

I wanted a bit of contrast so I added turquoise liner by Inglot on my lower lashline. I never get tired of the contrasting lower lid look it seems. I finished it all off with my latest peachy lips obsession of Nars Montego Bay and MAC Nymphette.

And here is my outfit of the day while I still fit in it, lol! The dress is from Calvin Klein (last year) and the sandals are Nine West. I wore this dress quite a bit last year but none of my female coworker remembered it. I guess I didn't have my tan so the light blue shade didn't stand out as much against my paler skin then:

    Melon is one of my favorite MAC pigments, too! It looks so gorgeous on people with a naturally tan skin tone, I think, because it complements the complexion so beautifully. Also, you look GREAT!

    Sue - thanks hun :)

    Laura - thanks lovely. Some of it may be pregnancy glow ;)

    Mandy - thanks sweetie. Melon is awesome! I agree that I use it more when I'm tanner (i.e., summer and spring)

    I bought melon a while back, but never use it for some reason. I guess it's because pigments are too much work in the morning and for some reason it only looks good when I am tan. Maybe it's time for a pigment challenge. I sure have enough. :)

    Btw, you look lovely with straight hair and gorgeous as always. xx

    Maya - thanks love! I know pigments are a bit more work but for me it's merely a few seconds more so I don't mind :) Melon is def best with a tan, I always forget that I even own it in the winter...but now that I got a tan during last week's vacation is the best time to get full use of it
