Hello Spring! Grey & Brown Look

Frankly, I've been too tired and too busy to blog.  So to make up for it, I thought I would bring you a cherry blossom photo.  Because, HELLO!  I'm sure you've not seen enough cherry blossom photographs all over the place this spring.
Actually what I was trying to do was to get some shots of several very large, slow moving and pudgy looking bumble bees hovering over the blossoms.  After giggle to myself about how slow and dopey the bees were, I was unable to capture a single non-fuzzy image!  Apparently, I was too slow and dopey!

It's finally spring around these parts.

While I wait for my skin to heal fully, I've been in a makeup rut of sorts and repeating a particular eye makeup combination of Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Grey Pearl and Tom Ford Eye Defining Pencil in Espresso.  The Caviar Stick in Grey Pearl (here) has become my recent, have no time or makeup inclination swipe and brighten the lids kind of a shade.  It's not fancy, it's not complex.  It's lovely though.  Tom Ford's Espresso (here) (this is my second one!) is a mainstay for me.
Swatches of the these two products.  Softly bright grey taupe with some simple cool toned shimmers of Grey Pearl combines beautifully with Tom Ford Espresso eye liner.
Here is how I have been wearing these.

The Grey Pearl is swiped on my lids slightly past the crease and blended with my fingers.  It is also applied to my lower lash line.  I used the Espresso to define on my upper lash line thickly and into an extended wing.  It is also placed in my lower water line.  I used my Tom Ford Smoky Eye Brush to smoke out the Espresso and smudge into the Grey Pearl.  Mascara added and then that's it!
I'm wearing Addiction Tinted Skin Protector as my foundation, along with Ellis Faas concealer.  I've brushed on Guerlain Perles du Dragon really liberally since my skin is feeling so blah these days.  On my cheeks, I'm wearing THREE blush in #20 placed higher and more centrally.  On my lips, just the Surratt gloss in Amethyst (here).
Oh yes, I may have pretty much chopped all my hair off and gone sleek, which is what nature gives me.

What's your I'm-in-a-makeup-rut-look?
