I’m 12-days into my Crest Get Bright Challenge. You can see last week’s results by checking out my previous update post. I have two more days of whitening to go before I’ve completed the challenge (fourteen days total). (I’m wearing Dior Bronze Harmony Blush in Coral Riviera on my cheeks, otherwise just foundation.)
I don’t have too much to update you with, other than with this week’s photo. The wear/feel of the products has stayed the same, so now it’s really a matter of efficacy. I do feel that my teeth are whiter, though I’m not sure if the difference is really, really noticeable. What do you think?

8 Ways to Wear Pink Eyeshadow
Sometimes we all need a little help getting creative when it comes to wearing eyeshadow, so let me share eight ways I’ve come up with to wear Da Bling!
1. Easy Light/Dark. Apply Da Bling eyeshadow all over the lid with the 239 brush. Sweep a dark burgundy purple shade like Shadowy Lady into the crease using a fluffy crease brush a la 222, 224, or 226. Finish by highlighting the area right below the brow with a color with a touch of pink in it, like Hush.
2. Pink Sunsets. Begin by applying Goldmine eyeshadow on the inner third of the eye lid with the 239 brush. Next, layer an orangey-yellow eyeshadow, like Juiced, on the middle third of the lid, slightly overlaying the gold-toned inner eyeshadow. Apply Da Bling eyeshadow on the outer third of the lid, gently sweeping the color into the outermost portion of the crease. Use a fluffy crease to blend the pink shade out. Highlight the brow area with your favorite neutral, highlighting eyeshadow.
3. Shamelessly Dark. Apply Da Bling to the inner third of the eye lid using the 239 brush. Accentuate the outer two-thirds of the eye lid by applying a dark shade, like Carbon, all over the area. Smoke it out by bringing it into the crease with a fluffy crease brush. Highlight the brow bone area.
4. Pink & Purple. Lightly apply Da Bling eyeshadow to the inner half of the lid, lightening it with Hush eyeshadow if necessary. Cover the outer half of the lid with a soft, pastel purple like Beautiful Iris or Digit eyeshadow. Darken the crease with a deeper purple color like Parfait Amour, lightly, with a fluffy crease brush to help diffuse the color. Finish with your choice in highlighters.
