FOTD: Coral Siren

Ok, ok, I'm going to admit it publicly: I absolutely SUCK at thinking of names for Face of the Day looks. Really. I do. Sometimes I don't even make an effort. Sometimes (like today) I do, but still end up with something dumb-sounding. Admitting something is the first step, right? Now we can move past it.

I STILL haven't straightened up where I normally take photos, so no pictures of supplies. Sorry :( If you have questions about anything specific, please let me know and I'll do my best to get pictures/ swatches/ a review up here. I actually  have a post on the lipstick I used here (L'Oreal Sparkling Coral) planned for the next couple of days, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Spoiler Alert: I love the shade and formula on this. It's a new favorite, and has been living in my purse since I first put it on.

As for the look itself, I'll try to remember to the best of my ability what went into it, but this was a few days ago aaaand... Uh... I don't know that I'll remember everything. I will give a conservative guess, meaning I'll only list the products that I know for sure I was wearing. That also means that it is very likely there were a handful of other products that went into this that are not being mentioned.

Face: Clinique Redness Correcting Base, NARS concealer, MUFE Face & Body Makeup, some kind of powder...?, The Body Shop Bronzer in 01. Probably a few other products I do not remember. Hard Candy Blush in Pin Up, Inglot Eyeshadow in D.S. 464 (terracotta orange with shimmer) as blush.

Eyes: Inglot Eyeshadow in D.S. 464, Inglot Eyeshadow in AMC Shine 11, colors from the Naked 1 palette (Half Baked and Virgin definitely, as well as one of the darker browns in the crease), Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in Binge on upper lash line, MAC eyeliner in Industrial on lower lashline, Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in Half Baked on inner portion of lower lashline, Prestige My Biggest Lashes mascara, Prestige brow pencil, Ulta brow gel.

Lips: L'Oreal Colour Riche lipstick in Sparkling Coral

And here is the resulting look:

What do you guys think? I really like the way this turned out! That Inglot shade works well as a blush, aside from being tricky because of how pigmented it is. I still love brown and gold eyeshadows with blue liner; I think it really makes the copper tones pop! And don't even get me started on this lipstick; I know I'm not traditionally a big fan of the Colour Riche formula, but I love the way this one looks. The smell is still a little weird, but it goes away quickly... Anyway, there will be more on that in a post devoted to reviewing the shade.


  1. agreed.. love that color on your lips! you're adorable!

  2. Who cares about the name, even if I like it, this look is soooo pretty :) xx

    1. Haha, I know, the name isn't the important part... And thank you!

  3. That is a great lip colour on you, Binge is very nice with this look as well! I'm also a huge fan of the Hard Candy blush, I have that one as well and you just can't go wrong with it!

    1. Thanks! And yes, this is a go-to blush for me. It's so flattering!
