I used a MAC concealer palette to start and then applied Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer (I blended Oucher and Sand). The blushes I used were: Sincere with 'Touch of Gold' blended in. On the eyes, I lightly swiped on Cork eyeshadow and then used Duck eyeliner (all MAC products). For the lips, I used MAC Etcetera lipliner and NARS Belle De Jour Lipstick!!! I absolutely love this lipliner/lipstick combination - it works as a day look natural, but add a gloss and create a smokey eye look and you're ready for a sophisticated evening out!!! NARS hands-down makes the best lipstick and lipcolours in my opinion. I always feel chic wearing NARS!!!

Right now, i'm definitely going to be adding a light peach-beige for one of my natural day looks. Here's a classic light peach look I created today:
