I wanted to try to do something subtle, but with some shape, so I figured why not take my sculpting and shaping powders for a spin? I mean, I bought them all, and I pretty much never use them, LOL. And booo, I wanted to get my eye brows done, but the lady I go to is on vacation ’til Sunday :(

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (creamy neutral base), Lightsweep shaping powder (PRO) (soft nude), Sculpt sculpting powder (PRO) (soft taupe), Soft Focus shaping powder (PRO) (soft yellow nude), Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner (warm brown), Too Faced Lash Injection Pin Point mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Dainty mineralize blush (soft peachy pink)
  • Lips: Burnin’ lipstick (dark purple), Ms. Fizz dazzleglass (shimmery fuchsia-purple)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Dainty = Peachykeen; Burnin’ = Cyber; Ms. Fizz = Venetian

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. Apply Lightsweep shaping powder all over lid with the 239. Gently apply Sculpt sculpting powder into the crease with the 239 to define and add shadow. Sweep Soft Focus shaping powder underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Too Faced Lash Injection Pin Point mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Dainty using the 129. Apply Burnin’ lipstick to lips, and then top with Ms. Fizz dazzleglass for color and shine.

Ohh, a little overboard in this look. I’m probably heading up to my parents’ house, so I’ll end up wearing a different look there anyway! (I usually spend all day outside running around with my puppy, so minimal makeup is usually better!)

I used Lark About pigment (LE) on inner lid, Mutiny pigment (LE) on middle of lid, Bell Bottom Blue pigment (LE) on outer lid, Rite of Spring eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Juxt eyeshadow on middle of lid, Newly Minted eyeshadow on middle of lid, Freshwater eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Juxt eyeshadow above crease, Phloof! eyeshadow on brow, Mutiny pigment (LE) on lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Other Worldly blush (LE) on cheeks with Dior Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer on cheeks. I wore Fun Fun lipstick (LE) with Comet Blue dazzleglass (LE) and Ms. Fizz dazzleglass (LE).

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

Quick look using Naughty Nauticals stuff, but I wasn’t satisfied with how it came out! The cool duochrome nature of Lark About & Stars ‘N Rockets is SO awesome, but it didn’t capture whatsoever in the photos. For some reason, I don’t any cool pink lipsticks (?!), or at least I couldn’t find any, which is what I really wanted to do as a lip base in this look!

I used Lark About pigment on lid, Vex eyeshadow on inner lid, Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow on middle of lid, Submarine eyeshadow (LE) on outer lid and crease, Vex eyeshadow above crease, Shroom eyeshadow on brow, Lark About pigment on lower lash line, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore True Romantic beauty powder blush (LE) with Lovely Lilac beauty powder (PRO) on cheeks. I had Sweetie lipstick with Ms. Fizz dazzleglass (LE) on my lips.

Lark About = Frozen White; Submarine = Blue Storm, Naval, Deep Truth; True Romantic = Breath of Plum; Ms. Fizz = Flashmode (maybe)
