Also in the interest of looking more dewy and less powdery, I've switched Orgasms....from NARS Orgasm blush in powder to cream stick. In the past, I've found cream blushes to be too heavy, but NARS gets it just right. The color is dewy with just a hint of sparkle, and doesn't look like 80's war paint.

During the warm summer and fall months, I'd been wearing just T. LeClerc pressed powder instead of any foundation, and was quite satisfied with the results. But as the weather turned cooler and drier, I found myself looking just a tad more powdery than I'd like. A few weeks ago Linda Grant at The Thoughtful Dresser posted about meeting make-up artist Mary Greenwell, who recommended Chanel Teint Innocence cream-to-powder foundation. Not long after, I was perusing the Chanel counter and decided to give it a try. Quel miracle! I apply with a foundation brush and it manages to even out my skin tone, cut shine and redness while at the same time seeming to disappear into my skin. I've always been partial to Chanel foundations, but this one is the hands-down winner.
