Soft Harmony

I'm to create a look that is soft, natural and elegant for everyday.  I'm so inspired by the soft gold tones of wheat, light muted gold and golden-sand shades.  I wanted these shades to be really well represented in this look, so I used my favourite MAC shadows of Soba and Woodwinked.  I started by using Woodwinked on the lid and into the crease.  I applied NARS Rue Bonaparte in the tear ducks of the eyes and used MAC Teddy eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line.  Using an angled brush, I blended Soba shadow into the upper lash line, creating a subtle smokey effect, but still blending well into the woodwinked shadow.  I continued with the golden theme, by using MAC Trace of Gold blush - next to NARS Madly, its my current favourite shade!  For the lips, I was really debating between trying a soft warm pink or using MAC Honeylove.  I decided on the Honeylove with MAC Stripdown liner:

I think this look is very chic and harmonious and if you read my last post about getting real with colour analysis and what it now means to me, you'll know that this look represents something unique and personal!!!  I feel much closer to my personal 'colour truth' than I ever have before :)

what about soft autumn deep?

That's definitely a possibility Giselle - I'm really loving Retro Lipstick by MAC right now and it seems like the perfect SA red - I'm going to play around with the SA ranges of tinted and toned and see where my intuition leads :)

I see toned as a great option! It`s more hard when the person is beautiful no matter what she wears.

Thanks Giselle - What a lovely compliment!!! :) I think I'll do a tinted/toned comparison :)

No... IMHO your eyes are definitely not deep. But very beautifully soft.... Your skin tone, not deep, and hair mid tones leaning toward ash/neutral base or cool red tones might b nice.
