fotd: black dahlia and ambient lighting

I hope everyone had a safe and fun New Year’s celebration! We kept it low-key with yummy food and great company. FOTD_black_dahlia_occMy skin has been all over the place because of the unpredictable weather we’ve had. I haven’t  set my Nars Sheer Glow foundation in weeks because my skin was looking so dry.

I wanted it for subtle highlighting because I never thought I could get away with wearing it all over. But I’ve worn it everyday since I got it and it gives me a much-needed glow. I dip my brush lightly in Dim Light (left) and Incandescent Light (middle) and sweep it across my cheeks and down the center of my face.

This shade is in Black Dahlia. It’s a beautifully vampy burgundy plum. It’s very similar in color, not texture, to UD Venom. I got a set with three other colors that I have been playing with and have an entire dedicated post coming up.  My eyes are simple with TooFaced Like A Virgin eyeshadow and mascara (not pictured).

Have you ever tried a Lip Tar or Ambient Lighting powder? What did you think? Did you do anything fun for New Years? Let me know in the comments below!

    1. You really do! I’d heard so many great things about them and I was totally skeptical. But they really do have such a beautiful finish. I’m in love! :)

    1. It was a fantastic gift! Sadly it was LE but you should totally check out the Ambient Lighting powders, great stuff. Thanks! Happy New Year to you too! :)
