I did this look ridiculously fast — like 5 minutes for the entire face (and to take photos!), and that included originally attempting to use Green Space pigment, hating it, and removing the eye makeup and re-doing it. (We were running late for a lunch with my Mom & sister.)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on the inner lid, Patina eyeshadow on middle of lid, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease and lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Graphblack techakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Margin blush on cheeks. I had By Degrees slimshine (LE) on lips with Prestigious lipglass (LE) on my lips.

You know, I had a real struggle trying to figure out the right lips for this look! I loved the eyes, though. I actually did the cheeks first, then the eyes, and left the lips for last (which is usual for me). I still wasn’t convinced this was the right lip combo, but I was at a loss as to what else instead. What would you have done?

I used Your Ladyship pigment (LE) on lid, Rose Blanc eyeshadow (LE) all over lid, Climate Blue eyeshadow (LE) on outer crease, Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow in crease, Parfait Amour eyeshadow on outer lid, Rose Blanc eyeshadow (LE) on lower lash line and inner crease, Shroom eyeshadow on brow, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Don’t Be Shy blush (LE) on cheeks with Lightly Lilac beauty powder (PRO) to highlight. I wore Florabundi lipstick (LE) with Cult Fave lipglass (LE) on my lips.

I really liked how this looked in person! It seems a bit TOO much in the close-ups, though. I can’t tell you how pretty Elite looks over Pink Pearl nor how lovely that golden-warm brown color looks with pinks and purple.

Happy weekend, all!

I used Pink Pearl pigment on lid, Elite eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid (in place of Warming Trend), Stars ‘N Rockets eyeshadow on middle of lid, Climate Blue eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid and crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow, Elite eyeshadow (LE) on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes.
