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.

Your Ladyship = Vanilla; Rose Blanc = Nylon; Climate Blue = Electric Eel + Parfait Amour; Rose Blanc = Nylon; Don’t Be Shy = Well Dressed; Florabundi = Creme de la Femme; Cult Fave = Pinkarat

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. I had True Romantic blush (LE) with Lightly Lilac beauty powder on cheeks. I wore Utter Pervette lipstick (LE) with Crystal Rose lipglass (LE) on my lips.

Elite = Woodwinked; Climate Blue = Deep Truth + Parfait Amour; Femme-fi = Shroom; True Romantic = Breath of Plum; Utter Pervette = Pervette; Crystal Rose = Stars ‘N Rockets + gloss

I wore this look yesterday! I think I’d probably make it less pink or throw in contrasting color in the crease or inner lid (maybe a darker color like Cranberry in the crease or Goldmine on the inner lid).

I wore Maidenchant blushcreme (LE) on cheeks with Don’t Be Shy blush (LE). I had Strawberry Blonde lipstick (LE) with Cult Fave lipglass (LE) on my lips.

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)
