Quick little look! Thought I’d try a look that incorporates blue but in a subtler way for those who are a little afraid of going all-out in the blue department. The lips took it from subtle to more, though–so opt for nude or light pink lips for a truly subtle look!

It’s my Dad’s birthday (Happy 53rd!), so I’ve got some surprises in store for him (shh, he occasionally happens upon the blog, so I can’t spill the details!).  It’s going to be a wickedly warm weekend here in northern California, so I’m gearing up to have some outdoor fun.  What about you guys?  What do you have in store for tonight and the weekend?

I used Lark About pigment (LE) on lid, Vex eyeshadow on inner lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on middle of lid, Nylon eyeshadow on outer lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow in outer crease, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease, Freshwater eyeshadow (very lightly) in outer crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, Blue Herizon liquidlast liner on upper lash line, and Kanebo 38+ mascara on lashes. I had Other Worldly blush (LE) on cheeks. I wore Rockocco lipstick (LE) with Cult Fave lipglass (LE) and Apex 3D glass (LE) on my lips.

** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available — may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!

Lark About = Phloof!; Feline = Graphblack; Other Wordly = Honour; Rockcocco = Lady Danger; Cult Fave = Cultured; Apex = Lychee Luxe (not a great dupe)
