I'm baaaack!! Chanel Illusore Look

No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth.  I've been working on balancing work, life along with some personal issues, and blogging had to take a backseat.  I do plan on continuing blogging, and I thank everyone that has stuck with me.  Muchos kudos to you bloggers out there who maintain life, work and regularly blog - it's hard work!

I haven't really been purchasing all that much makeup lately, which isn't really a bad thing.  My bank account is sure thankful, and I certainly have more than enough in my stash to last an eternity.  Buttttt, Chanel's Fall Collection caught my eye...and how could it not?  Right now I don't have swatches, mostly because I'm still debating a few items.  I do, however, have a look for you featuring Illusore Illusion D'Ombre from the Fall Collection.

Basically, I wanted to do something simple and work appropriate.  I'm lucky that I have a little freedom to wear fun stuff, but I find myself gravitating to more polished and professional looks.  This is just a wash of Illusore over the lid with a highlighter, and a little liner underneath the lower lash line, topped off with a few coats of mascara.  Super simple and  a quick to do in the morning.
