Looks – Bright Ocean Teals and Greens

After we got settled into our hotel yesterday afternoon, I did this bright look. I figured since most of the day was gone, I wouldn’t have to worry about it melting off. I’ll use today to determine just how much makeup I can wear and tolerate with the humidity and high heat!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Teal pigment (teal base), Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow (green-based gold), Sharp eyeshadow (chartreuse), Gulf Stream eyeshadow (teal), Cool Heat eyeshadow (blue-teal), Ricepaper eyeshadow (soft neutral highlighter), Graphblack technakohl (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Suncentered Colour Forms Powder (soft peach)
  • Lips: Cherish lipstick (nude beige), Illicit lipglass (beige)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Sharp = Sour Lemon; Gulf Stream = Shimmermoss; Cool Heat = Electric Eel; Suncentered = Foolish Me; Illicit = C-Thru

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Teal pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. Apply Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on inner third of the lid using the 239. Apply Sharp eyeshadow next to Gorgeous Gold with the 239. Deepen outer lid with Gulf Stream eyeshadow with the 239, and then darken the outer lid with Cool Heat eyeshadow. Darken the outer crease using Cool Heat eyeshadow with the 239. Sweep Ricepaper underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Suncentered using the 129. Apply Cherish lipstick to lips, and then top with Illicit lipglass for color and shine.

Looks – Sea & Sky Goes Bold, Deep Dark Blue

I’m a bit under the weather at the moment (I think it’s the flu…), so if I look a bit ragged/tired, that’s why 😉 This didn’t quite come out how I wanted it, and I really wanted to wipe it all off afterwards, lol. Don’t you hate when that happens? Hopefully tomorrow will go better! (It’s been a rough few days here over at Temptalia HQ – nothing has gone as planned!)

By the by, Deep Dark is way too orange for me. I ended up using it more as a blusher (and had to buff it a bit), so I’ll be exchanging that next week when I go pick up my Colour Forms products (18th). I do like it as a light blush, so we’ll see – I’ll keep experimenting this week before I return it.

It’s Friday, ladies! Rejoice, we’re almost to the weekend. What do you have planned for tonight/this weekend?

I used Blue pigment (LE) on lid, Sea & Sky mineralize eyeshadow (marbled side) (LE) on inner lid, Sea & Sky mineralize shadow (colored side) (LE) on lid, Contrast eyeshadow on outer crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, Nylon eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Sea & Sky mineralize shadow (colored side) (LE) on lower lash line, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow layered on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Deep Dark mineralize skinfinish duo on cheeks. I wore Sandy B lipstick and Illicit lipglass (LE).

Blue = Freshwather; Sea & Sky = Tilt; Sea & Sky = Freshwater; Illicit = C-Thru
