Canon Powershot SD1400IS - With Flash

Hey Guys!
Here is my Chanel FOTD that I promised to post. I hope you enjoy! I used two different cameras, but some pictures I look washed out even though I am quite tan at the moment. I'll let you know the camera and settings I used in each picture in case you are interested. I find its hard to take good makeup pictures, especially when there is poor natural lighting outside (which there was the day I took these photos). I did a classic silver and black smokey eye because I've been testing out different looks for when I go to Vegas in 5 days! I think I'll be wearing this particular look with a black dress on one of our nights out.

I never use a flash when taking pictures, but this time I did and my makeup looks true to life, especially my skin colour. The Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua has an SPF10 and it didn't white cast my photos! I love this foundation!

  2. love the eyelashes! they look really natural (as in not shiny).

  3. someones getting a little hooked on chanel ;) I wanna try the matte foundation.

  4. That foundation looks amazing! I would love if you would give an update in a week or two to let us know how you feel the wear is with the foundation.. how long it lasts and etc. I really want to try it!

  5. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!


  6. Wow you look great and soooo tiny in those pics.

  8. This foundation seems amazing! :- )

  9. You are so freakin' gorgeous :) I appreciate the camera annotations. I find it hard to take makeup pictures as well.

  10. Gorgeous as usual! Are you still loving Vita Zing? I'm thinking about purchasing it.


  11. What a divine lip combo! I wanted Gaga 2, but figured it was too dark. I have a dupe for Jazzed so hopefully I can get it now. Thanks :)

  12. Jeez Cheryl, you're so hawt.

    I wanna try Vita Aqua.. but I'm afraid it's going to be too sheer. I might pick up a sample.

    I never noticed.. but you have the PERFECT NOSE! I recently began hating my nose.. so I think I've been noticing noses more lately.

  13. you are so beautiful. i love this look!

    following you now :)
