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. 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

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)

Okay, I was trying to do this whole horizontal placement thing, and it just doesn’t work well with my eye shape, I don’t think! When the eye is open (as it most often is), it just didn’t look right, so I had to fudge it up a bit to make it more my style (this is the result). Could have used some more blending at the top, but at least the lips rocked! And the colors were bright :)

I used Pink Pearl pigment on lid (PRO), Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow on lid, Parfait Amour eyeshadow in crease, Contrast eyeshadow above crease, Thunder eyeshadow above Contrast (LE), Nylon eyeshadow on brow, Royal Wink fluidliner on upper lash line, Lovely Lily pigment on lower lash line (LE), Graphblack technakohl on lower waterline, and Plushblack plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush (LE) on cheeks. I had Show Orchid (PRO) lipstick with Cult Fave lipglass (LE) on my lips.
