Let's just get this first Face of the Day out of the way, because I honestly can't remember everything I was wearing that day.

What I DO remember wearing here are the Kevyn Aucoin primer and Liquid Airbrush foundation, the Elizabeth Arden Smoky Eyes eyeliner, Makeup Forever Uplight #11, and Chanel Abstraction. You see, I was trying to see if I could purge any of these things. I've decided to keep most of them, although I won't be repurchasing Abstraction: it's pretty, but not striking or unique enough for me to reach for it on the regular. What I AM purging is the Liquid Airbrush foundation. Yes, it photographs beautifully, but it can be fussy on my skin, and it's a bit peachy for my tastes. I also don't reach for it that often because I'm generally a sheer coverage kinda gal.

Also, these photos make it clear that the Skindinavia Bridal spray is slightly different from the original: the Bridal is a bit shinier/glowier. I need to stop after one or two squirts of the Bridal, whereas I can really pile on the original and I look less powdery, but not exactly dewy. That's not a BAD thing, but I think I'll stick with the original in the future. It's rare that I want to look super-duper-glowy all over.

This second FOTD is what I wore to work this afternoon, so it's much easier to remember and break down. :)
