FOTD Friday: Iman Cosmetics, Take 1

As promised, my darlings, I am doing a face of the day from my run-in with some Iman Cosmetics goodies. I’ll incorporate them in more FOTDs and with complete reviews and all!

This time I played around with the eyeshadow Mahogany.

This is such a beautiful soft brown that blends like a dream. It’s a matte..and it may be one of my favorite mattes of all time. Just look at how the brush soaks it up.

Wow! I applied it on the outer-V and crease like so….

Okay, so I am REALLY in love with Mahogany, y’all. It gave me such depth with little effort. As with most mattes, a little goes a long way so if you use this, you better use a light hand or you may apply too much.

On to the cheeks….I used Iman Cosmetics’ Freesia blush.

Now, at first swatch…I really thought I would like this. It looked beautiful against my skin when I swatched it on the arm, see?

But it was a different story when I applied it on the cheeks. It looked like I got punched on both sides. I ain’t lyin’, yall.

It could very well be me. I’ll admit I’m not the best with darker blushes application. I’ll have to consult with a make-up artist on this one. Here’s the look all pulled together!

Oh….back to the topic at hand.

I be jammin’ on the way to work!

And I’m still leaving positive notes in random places for people to see.

Y’all should really get on the Operation Beautiful bandwagon. It’s quite addicting, I tell ya! And what better addiction to have than to make people feel good about themselves? I try to do it every day.

I’m such a cornball. HA!

Alright darlings….have a WONDERFUL weekend

Stay beautiful,

    i wish i could put on make up the way you can. i think part of my problem is that i dont own a lot of make up so i have nothing to play with. :)

  • Miss Yaya

    If you're still rockin' that same blush in the last pictures, I'd say it came out well in the end!

    I think the blush looks good on you. With IMAN (very pigmented) less is more.

  • kenzie.

    did you apply the blush with a skunk brush?? the only other thing i can think of is apply it in really sheer washes–its easier to add more than take some away. And i think you look absolutely darling in the car pictures!

    I love Iman's make up – I purchased a bag of hers from HSN and the make up came with and it's beautiful. The colors you have are beautiful on you…
