Eyes: Constructivist paint pot (Warm dark brown cream shadow/base), Shroom eyeshadow (light taupe), Woodwinked eyeshadow (warm bronzy brown), Bronze eyeshadow (dark shimmery brown), Carbon eyeshadow (matte black), Ricepaper eyeshadow (neutral highlighter), Indianwood paint pot (bronze gold cream eyeshadow), Graphblack technakohl (black kohl liner), and black mascara.
Face: If you’d like to compliment the eyes, use Margin blush (darker coral) on apples of cheeks with Taupe blush to contour.
Lips: For matching lips, try Curtsy lipstick with Lightswitch 3D lipglass.

    is curtsy usually that pale or is that the lipglass thats making it like that? i can’t decide which lipsticks to buy >.< it is so hard to make decisions using internet product photos but this website helps me soooo much…i look up a product to see if youve used it!

    anyway…i’m kind of between thrills, curtsy or twig twig. i know they arent really alike but i only have enough dinero for one…which do you like? if it helps i am very pale skinned with brown hair

    • Hey Sara! Lightswitch 3D Glass DEFINITELY makes Curtsy look lighter. If you are looking for more of a neutral/lighter lip color, Twig Twig is probably perfect, because it goes on sheerly. Thrills is a pop of color, and Curtsy is semi-sheer, but it does have some color to it.

    This is my hands down favorite look on you. Now if only I could find MY hands down favorite look for me LOL 😀 Your pics are such an inspiration, they give me so many ideas. Keep up the great work.

    absolutely loooooove this look. it’s definitely a sexier version of the ‘natural’ look. i think it’s something you can wear to go to a regular ol’ pub and you’d be the hottest one there, but in a subtle manner, if that makes any sense.. hah!
