NARS Audacious in Charlotte FOTD

I was so excited for the weekend to come so I can take some photos and show you how NARS Charlotte looks on. I love love this lipstick and since I got it I was determined to make it work for day time as well. Its pretty full on which means I go my usual route- practically no eye makeup.

So here is my face of the day I was wearing most of last week.

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet - The shade I have in this is a tad dark for me at the moment but I like my complexion to be a bit more tanned for when I wear the dark berry lip. So a lot of buffing and blending and it works. The velvet finish is great for the hot weather as it doesn't get disco ball shiny as fast.
Armani High Precision Retouch concealer- hand down my favorite makeup product I have bought recently. Nothing I want to use for my dark under eyes ever again.
Clinique Airbrush Concealer- I use this combined with Armani cause it helps to warm up the very light shade Armani has so I dont have reverse panda eyes.

Bronzer: NARS Laguna- I dont even use anything else anymore. Its the bomb!
Blush: The Balm Hot Mama- what a beautiful blush to make you look alive. It is like a less shimmery version of the Benefit Coralista and I must say I prefer Hot Mama over it. Coral perfection for summer.
Highlight: Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Powder in Candlelight- liberally dusted everywhere starting from cheeks, inner corner of the eye to cupid's bow and down the nose.
Eyes: No eyeshadow cause thats the look I like the best when wearing so noticeable lipsticks during day time. Also blending eye shadows is not my strength so any reason to skip it will do.
Kat Von D Ink Linker- I like the felt tip liner for this look because I try to line in between the lashes as well. So the actual line above the lashes is super thin but it still makes an impact if you fill in the gaps between the lashes.
I am not wearing fake lashes here its just two generous coats of different mascaras MUFE Smoky Lash Extra Black and Cover Girl Lashblast Fusion. Two layers of Smoky Lash start clumping too much and Im not a huge fan of that but just one proper coat of it followed by Lashblast creates a pretty full on lashy look.

And thats all. I know the makeup itself is nothing special I mean there isnt even any eyeshadow but I just wanted you to see that if you dont own Charlotte yet you are missing out.

Whats your favorite burgundy red wine shade lipstick?


  1. Charlotte looks great on you! I really like the Audacious line, well, I like the one - Anna - I have from the line ;-)
    The Beauty Bloss

    1. Thank you so much! It really is the first burgundy I feel comfortable wearing. Love the shade and the formula. Anna looks beautiful! I also have Lana but would love a more toned down Audacious to add to the collection.

  2. GURL! Love this lipstick on you :)

  3. This shade suits you so much! It brightens your entire complexion :) x

  4. You.are.FLAWLESS. *snaps fingers in a zig zag formation*. You wear this colour so well and I absolutely love the combination of no eyeshadow and a bright lip. I haven't tried any of the NARS lipsticks but I feel as if this should be my first shade.

    Also, I'm really curious about this Armani concealer you're loving...yet another thing to add to the list.


    1. Ha ha GUUURRL you are awesome. Imagining the finger snapping and laughing out loud! I have never loved a burgundy shade as much as I love this one for real. Definitely get this as your first Audacious.

      Oh yes I can talk about that Armani until the sun comes up. I am obsessed with it!
