Guerlain Les Gris Goes to the Library...... and Other Stories.

Library card? check.
4 small children of assorted ages? check.
Tote bag? check.
Blueish gray smoky eye? check.


Maybe my checklist is a bit unconventional, but it works for me.  Here is a recent look I did with the Guerlain Les Gris palette.  I also incorporated my Guerlain Terra Inca Sublime Radiant Powder and new Rouge Automatique in Chant D'Aromes.  I felt so fancy that I stopped by the McDonald's drive thru on the way home. Super fancy.

Great look! and love the cat eye liner! How do you like the Voluminous Million Lashes?

Martha said...

Thanks everyone :)

Ava- I really like the million Lashes, possibly better than Lash Out. It does tend to be clumpy though so keep a lash comb handy.
