Enough Said and Soft & Gentle :) I think this is one of my favorite combinations — it just looks really natural and glowy.

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad, Blacktrack fluidline (black), Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner (gold), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft gold-peach), Soft & Gentle mineralize skinfinish (gilded gold)
  • Lips: Strawberry Blonde lipstick (pink-coral), Sugar Trance (sheer white-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Enough Said = Gingerly; Strawberry Blonde = Skew; Sugar Trance = Prrr

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. On the inner half of the lid, apply the lightest color from the Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad with the 239. Apply the next lightest color on the outer half of the lid with the 239 brush. Darken the crease with medium colored brown and drag using the 239. Sweep the lightest color underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner on lower lash line and Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Enough Said using the 129, highlight with Soft & Gentle. Apply Strawberry Blonde lipstick to lips, and then top with Sugar Trance lipglass for color and shine.

I love trying and playing with new products–especially ones I just purchased–but it’s really annoying when it’ll take you days to try them all out. Case in point: between Red She Said & Sheer Minerals, I ended up with eight different cheek products! I only have two cheeks! Plus, let’s face it, I can’t exactly walk around in public with two totally different colors. So what’s a beauty addict to do? Try one, layer it, then remove it all… and do it again!

I did four cheek combinations yesterday, and here’s the first one. I’ll post the rest throughout today and tomorrow! :) This one is just Enough Said alone… LOVE IT!

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad, Blacktrack fluidline (black), Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner (gold), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Enough Said blush (soft gold-peach)
  • Lips: Strawberry Blonde lipstick (pink-coral), Sugar Trance (sheer white-pink)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Enough Said = Gingerly; Strawberry Blonde = Skew; Sugar Trance = Prrr

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. On the inner half of the lid, apply the lightest color from the Chanel Beiges de Chanel quad with the 239. Apply the next lightest color on the outer half of the lid with the 239 brush. Darken the crease with medium colored brown and drag using the 239. Sweep the lightest color underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Honey 24/7 Liner on lower lash line and Blacktrack fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with Enough Said using the 129. Apply Strawberry Blonde lipstick to lips, and then top with Sugar Trance lipglass for color and shine.

It’s been a tiring weekend! I hope everybody did something fun/relaxing/exciting this weekend :) Are you ready to start the week? I’m sooo not. This is from yesterday, and I tried to “style” my hair, which did not work out so well, LOL. Oh, well, practice, practice, practice!

  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Copperbeam = Tan; Smoke & Diamonds = Silver Ring; Rose Blanc = Nylon; Suncentered = Peachykeen; Strawberry Blonde = Please Me; Moonstone = Nymphette

As someone who isn’t scared of heights, the zipline wasn’t as exhilerating as I thought it would be. I think I had more of a “thrill ride” while horseback riding! It wasn’t bad, but I don’t think I need to do it again. I did this look late in the day (probably 4pm or so), and I figured I’d go bolder than I have been! Today’s my last day to bum around Hawaii – tomorrow I fly back home. I miss my baby boy and my boyfriend terribly, so I’m eager to return home after being away for a week :)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Cocomotion pigment (metallic brown base), Rye eyeshadow (antique gold), Mink & Sable eyeshadow (olive green), Gulf Stream eyeshadow (teal), Ricepaper eyeshadow (neutral highlighter), Feline kohl power (black), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Cheeks: Margin blush (dirty pink)
  • Lips: Strawberry Blonde lipstick (pink), C-thru lipglass (nude)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
  • Substitutes: Cocomotion = Tan; Rye = Romp; Mink & Sable = Sumptuous Olive; Gulf Stream = Shimmermoss; Strawberry Blonde = Sweetie

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Cocomotion pigment all over the lid as the base with the 249. Apply Rye eyeshadow to inner third of the lid using the 239 brush. Follow by applying Mink & Sable eyeshadow to the middle of the lid. Darken outer lid with Gulf Stream eyeshadow. Apply Gulf Stream eyeshadow into outer crease to deepen, using the 239. Soften harsh lines with Rye eyeshadow swept above crease. Highlight brow with Ricepaper eyeshadow. Line lower lash line with Feline kohl power. Sweep apples of cheeks with Margin blush using the 129. Apply Strawberry Blonde lipstick to lips, and then top with C-thru lipglass for color and shine.

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 used Lovely Lily pigment on lid, Hush eyeshadow on inner lid, Da Bling eyeshadow on middle of lid, Passionate eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Stars ‘N Rockets eyeshadow on outer crease, Hush eyeshadow above crease and on brow and lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. 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.

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

Maidenchant = Posey; Don’t Be Shy = Well Dressed; Strawberry Blonde = Skew; Cult Fave = Cultured

I felt like doing a super dark eye, which I didn’t execute as well as I would have liked, but it’s just something so dramatic and fun, I couldn’t resist not taking photos!

I used Blacktrack fluidline all over lid, Carbon eyeshadow all over lid, Vex eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, and Pink Opal pigment on lower lash line. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour and Micro Pink beauty powder to highlight. I had Strawberry Blonde lipstick with Lull lipglass.
