Illamasqua Writhe Bronzer

Illamasqua Writhe Bronzer

Writhe has a very pretty, burnished copper-bronze look to it.  It has a slight metallic gold shimmer-sheen, but it can be applied very subtly for a softer look.  It’s nice as a bronzer or as a blush.  I didn’t find it too orange or red, though I think this definitely suits warmer skin tones best.  You can also layer it for a more intense, obvious bronzed cheek, too.  It is particularly shimmery, though, so those looking to use this all over the face may find it a bit much for day time.

Recommendation: If you love that burnished, sun-bronzed cheek, Writhe will achieve all that and more.  Very pretty when paired with golds on the eyes!

Buy 2 Mascaras, Get 1 Free @ Nordstrom

Buy 2 Mascaras, Get 1 Free @ Nordstrom

Today (May 29th) only, Nordstrom is having a special where you can purchase two mascaras [from the same brand] and get a third free [of the brand’s top selling mascara]. It only applies to certain mascaras, which you can see here. Even though it says only applicable to certain brands, all the major mascara contenders are included — Chanel, Dior, Lancome — along with Bare Escentuals, Bobbi Brown, Chantecaille, Clarins, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Guerlain, Laura Mercier, MAC, NARS, Shiseido, Smashbox, Trish McEvoy, YSL and more.

Heads up, though I think doing this in-store will yield you more variety. Just like when Nordstrom did buy 2 eyeshadows, get 1 free for MAC, you could only get the same shade for free online, but in-store, you could choose. I haven’t been to Nordstrom (hey, it’s 7am!) today, so I couldn’t tell you myself, but you could always call and ask before making the trip over, too. :)  Funny enough, I don’t think there is any mascara I’d be willing to commit to with 2-3 tubes, haha.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #1 Anthracite, #22 Emerald Green

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream

I can see #1 Anthracite working really well for an intense, ultra-dark smoky eye. I definitely think that #22 Emerald Green is definitely the more versatile and usable shade of these two in particular, though. It’s great layered underneath golds, greens, blues, and teals.

Recommendation: If you love color and rich, creamy textures, you may find the new Aqua Creams right up your alley.

Sultry Sunset: All About Funbathing!

Sultry Sunset: All About Funbathing!

I was completely determined to use Funbathing lipstick, since it’s the only To the Beach lipstick I hadn’t yet used in an actual look. I already had a good idea of what I wanted to do — kind of a smoky berry/burgundy eye — and this is kind of ended up. I didn’t intend for the inner corner to be quite as orange-yellow, but I suppose it works!

May your Saturday be filled with enjoyment! :)

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof as your eyeshadow base all over the eye area with the 249. Using the 239, apply Goldmine eyeshadow on the inner third of the lid and pull upwards along the inner crease. Lightly blend Free Love eyeshadow on the middle of the lid with the 239. Next, apply Star Violet eyeshadow into the crease with the 226, lightly blending onto the outer lid. Define the crease with Vibrant Grape eyeshadow and the 226. Blend Nylon eyeshadow with the crease shade and highlight the brow bone. Bring everything together by applying #11 Aqua Cream on the lower lash line. Finish by sweeping lashes with Plushlash mascara.

For cheeks, apply Hipness blush on the apples of the cheeks and sweep upwards towards the temple with the 116, then lightly pat Get-Away Bronze blush on the cheekbones.

For lips, apply Funbathing lipstick first, and then layer Easy Lounger lipglass for a complementing lip.
