I used my favorite coral La Femme blush, but judging by these photos, I could have used a bit more. The light in my office is kind of blue. Really, my skin has some warm tones, which work nicely with this deep red-orange tone.

Bare Escentuals Bisque to set concealer – let's see if it works! Time to foil that deadly raccoon eye!
Revlon Blasé Apricot Lipstick patted on lips with fingertip
The lipstick unfortunately settled into my lip lines and started to look gooky later in the day. I remember this aroma of the Moondrops formula, and I'm thinking it's bringing me some not so nice 60s flashbacks. Definitely need to scrub the lips before using this lipstick, and maybe blot it a lot and top with a gloss, which isn't the retro look, but is practical for us modern gals.
The Bare Escentuals Bisque over the Michael Marcus concealer worked almost perfectly under my eyes -- only a bit of under eye liner crawl. I hate that raccoon look, though! I want it to work perfectly! Maybe need to adjust my application. I'll try a few things and report back.
