Beauty Discovery: Blue eyeshadow looks good on me! When I bought CP’s Blue Moon palette, I wasn’t sure if I could actually pull off blue eyeshadow, but I put together a pretty look by using a warm brown shade in the crease, and blue on the lid. I have hooded eyes and my lids are small, so it was just a pop of blue. I got a lot of compliments. (I posted it in Color Stories.) I still haven’t been able to get a good look out of the Uh Huh Honey palette, but I’m working on it. Everything I’ve tried so far has made me look jaundiced.

Seraphine, That was exactly my concern when I saw the Uh Huh Honey palette, I envisioned it making me look like I was suffering from an illness. The colours are so pretty, I can wear those colours, but maybe just not on my face. I hope you have some luck with it.

I got it to work for me! I did a Color Story called Sunny Jewel Tones that shows the shades and explains how I used them together (along with a couple of shades from the Tarte Unleashed palette). It looks really nice…no jaundice!

Your skin tone/coloring: Next to my name! (Blue-green eyes)

Favorite look from the week: A swampy, sultry look I did using Coloured Raine Safari Raine palette and a few shades from Queen Of Hearts palette, too.
Eyes: Heir (QoH) transition up into browbone. Congo Basin in crease and lower lashline very smoked out. Matriarch in deep crease, again very smoked out, also on lower outer lashline. Crown (QoH) inner tear ducts. Lioness inner lid. Green Valley mid lid. Amazon Basin outer lid. UD Stash 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil lower lashline, and Spacedust inner corner lashline, black mascara, and liner for upper wing.
Cheeks: UD Jawbone bronzer, MAC Oh My Passion blush, Dose Of Colors Miramé highlighter.
Lips: Nyx Coffee SLP, Tom Ford L&B Derek lipstick, Becca Beach Nectar lipgloss.

Your most used product this week: Coloured Raine Safari Raine palette, hands down!

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): Don’t forget to pack your makeup mirror for vacation. Not that I did this…(I totally did this).

Hi, Genevieve! Thanks for asking. We had couple rough — and expensive — days, but things are back on track now. The clutch for our truck’s A C system seized, throwing debris into the system. We had to replace it all. On the way to the AC repair shop, the wheel one of our tires broke. By the time we got done with repairs, car rental, motel, etc. it cost us about $1700 – 1800. We were lucky to be in a city, though, and not stuck in the desert or mountains. The repair people were very nice and worked hard to get us on our way again ASAP. We saw the Loveland Natural History Museum and the local aquarium in Salt Lake City, so all was not lost.

The Dinosaur National Monument area is incredible. The geology is a really diverse and a beautiful history lesson. The DNM Visitors Center is built so that one wall is a partially excavated mountainside. It is so literally crammed with fossils one could look at it for a few hours and still not see them all.

Today we’re heading to Southeastern Utah, to Moab and Arches National Park. We’ll continue west through Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, and the Kodachrome Basin. Have a wonderful week!

Rachel, your beauty “discovery” was the same exact one I made last year on my trip to Tucson! Then came convincing one BFF’s to take a trip into Target (so I could get another one, of course, cause I’m that blind!) on our way back to the hotel after our first day. Fun stuff!

Ha, ha! I just about facpalmed myself when I realized. My lighted mirror broke, and I meant to dig out my backup non-lighted mirror. The pharmacy screwed up a prescription I needed, which took way too much time on my part to sort out, and I totally forget. Luckily my eye palette had a decent-sized mirror, and I had my double-sided compact mirror in my purse for magnification.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favoruite look from the week: I used my Huda Smokey Obessions palette a few times this week, with the Rose Gold shade all over the lid, with the taupe skimmer ( #3) on the lower lid, and a touch of #8, a lighter medium taupe matte in the crease. I paired it with Colour Pop’s Brick lipstick.

Your most used product this week: All my staples.

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): None really this week.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite look from the week: Australian Gold tinted facial sunscreen set with a light dusting of Clarins Sunset Glow bronzer; Becca Foxglove blush, MAC Pleasant Patent Polish lipstick/gloss (not sure which it actually is); UD’s Beached e/s palette (Salt and Blaze on inner and outer lid), MAC Wedge in crease and Sephora Cappuccino liner
Your most used product this week: The Australian Gold sunscreen and Guerlain Champs Elysees lipstick (and oldie but still in great shape)
Any beauty discoveries… just how nicely that Clarins bronzer works as a setting powder for summer – gives a nice bit of healthy colour to my face and sets my sunscreen (which I use in place of a foundation or CC cream) so well while adding a bit more coverage as well.

Marielle: the AG tinted mineral sunscreen is the Botanical spf 50 one, right? Mineral/physical is a must for me; want to add the AG to the arsenal and compare. OMG does AG have a metric ton of product on Amazon! Thanks in advance.

Yes – I think that’s the only tinted one they make (the “branches” on the tube are turquoise). I also use the untinted one on my arms, legs, chest, etc. Amazing products, both.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair but very warm, hazel eyes with platinum blond hair.

Favorite look from the week: Keeping it simple with a lot of SPF in this hot and humid monsoon weather. Missha’s M Perfect Cover BB Cream 42 spf +++ over Milani Prime & Protect Primer 30 spf. Going monochromatic using Cle de Peau’s cream blush in Fig as blush, eyeshadow, and lippy.

Your most used product this week: The Cdp cream blush & Missha BB cream.

Any beauty discoveries (new or old): Found Catrice’s Eyeshadow Stix at our local ‘departmental’ shop (I live beyond the arse end of nowhere in the Himalayas so finding any makeup here is RARE.) Bought 3 shades and am quite impressed with the ease of application and wear time (10 hrs) . They are slightly shimmery and very creamy setting to powder in about a minute – not stiff & waxy like Catrice’s now discontinued Stylo shadow crayons. Great paired with winged liner for a simple eye look that is quite elegant!
