Face of the Day: NYC IndividualEyes

Many of you wanted to see a look made exclusively with the NYC IndividualEyes Custom Compact in Central Park that I swatched last week.

Today’s your lucky day!


I dyed my hair! It’s a nice vibrant fake-looking red color. Exactly what I wanted. Check it out:

So red!

I used the Wet N Wild Natural Blend Lip Shimmer in Cinnamon on my lips.

The NYC IndividualEyes Custom Compact comes with a primer, illuminator and 4 eye shadow shades. I used all of this in the look.

I spread the primer all over my lid and up to the brow bone, and the illuminator just under my eyebrow and at the inside corner of the eye.

The colors didn’t create as much dimension as I’d like, but it was still a nice neutral look. I think I’ll need to practice with it a bit more.

To complete the look, I lined my eyes with Maybelline Define-A-Line Eyeliner in Ebony Black and coated my lashes with Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Mascara in Glam Black.

How’s the weather in your area? It’s snowing like crazy right now where I am. Boooo!

  1. It’s freezing at my neck of the hood!

    I love your hair, it’s so pretty! The lipstick goes well with your hair and I love your eye look.

  2. Wait, Dao… I thought you lived in Florida. Is it cold there?

    Also, thanks for the compliments. Red hair all the way!

  3. That’s a very pretty look! I love your lip color and it complements your hair well. 🙂

  4. omg I’m super envious of your lashes! Your hair looks great too 🙂 I think I’m going to try henna-ing my hair red again sometime soon.

  5. Thanks for the compliments, Gio and MM. You gals are so nice. 😀

  6. I just colored my hair too and it’s supposed to be burgundy! lol My hair is naturally super dark, almost black, and in most light that’s what it looks like, but in sunlight then it looks just about the same as yours in that picture.

    The eye look turned out great! How does that primer work, did you get any fading or creasing after awhile? Or does it really work? I check those out every time I’m in the store but end up putting them back. I think I might pick up one of them, especially if the primer really does work as a primer. Or…I’ll just wait for a good sale and get two! lol

  7. Thanks, Donna! The primer is some of the best I’ve ever tried. It’s smooth and lasts all day. I didn’t see any creasing. I’ve started using it for all looks, even when I’m using eye shadows from another palette.
