WHAT'S YOUR BEAUTY PERSONALITY? - THE CLASSIC

and a little bit more definition at night.

Clean, Simple and Fresh...... for the day.
Keep the lips soft and supple and in a shade that is close to your natural lip colour.
I lined my lips with MAC Lip Liner in Beurre and filled it in with T. Leclerc in Sauvage.
T. Leclerc is an amazing drugstore brand in Paris. They have fantastic powders which are milled to its finest. The one I have is in Banane. Perfect for setting the undereye area :)
They are nicely packaged too :)

For the evening add a thin gel liner very close to the lash bed. This makes the lashes look fuller.
Open up the eyes by applying Glam Eyes by Rimmel. By using a brown shadow with an angled brush, you softly define the eyes.

Softly define the eyes with shades naturally found in your face like beige, all shades of brown, creams.

The Coastal Scents 28 Neutral Palette - a Make Up Kit Staple

YOUR BEAUTY ICON: KATIE HOLMES

Do you gravitate to Beiges and Browns when it comes to choosing your eyeshadows? Is Spice Lip Liner from MAC a must have in your vanity kit? Do you like your skin flawless, no harsh contouring, just that natural flush? Does the idea of putting on an Orange or Fuschia Lips make you cringe? If you find yourself saying yes to any of these questions then, chances are you are the CLASSIC. No, you are not a creature of habit, you just want to stay in your comfort zone because you already know that these make up bag staples bring out the best in you. You follow one of the things that I follow when it comes to make up – don’t fix what is not broken.

For Classic Beauties, the 28 Neutral Palette from Coastal Scents should be a Make Up Kit Mainstay. Not only does it have all the shades of Beige and Brown in all possible textures but it can somehow help you experiment by trying on the Shimmery Medium Brown E/S with some tinges of Purple. Applying it as an eyeshadow may be too bold a move for you, so perhaps, you may try using it as an eyeliner as a start. J

For the day define the eye by lining the lash bed with the brown powder liner. Vamp it up at night by applying a brown gel liner on top of the brown powder liner.

Classic Ladies likes their lips natural looking so finding the following shades may not come as a surprise: MAC Spice Lip Liner, MAC Taupe, Half & Half, INGLOT Lip paint in 51 & 52. For an evening out, you may want to add a clear gloss in the centre of your lips for a sexier pout J

For me, Katie Holmes epitomises the Classic Beauty, though I have seen in her more adventurous looks, she is almost always in brown, beiges and creams. I aint complaining coz she looks amazing, fresh and always put together J
