FOTD: Winter's Last Stand

I know I've been big into spring colors lately, gravitating towards gold, copper, coral, and turquoise. However, I was itching to wear some cooler colors today, and came up with a look that ended up reminding me of Winter! I've got some royal blue, grey, silver and champagne involved, and even though it doesn't feel like "summer" to me, I'm happy to rock this in the sunshine. Besides, I'm getting sushi for dinner tonight, and the blue and silver seem appropriate, right? Maybe? Like fish scales, a bit?

Just go with it.

Once again, I didn't take pictures of what I used. The area I usually use to lay out my supplies has been taking over with sewing notions... Whoops. I need to straighten up this weekend!

Here's the look:

And here is what I used:

Face: Clinique Redness Solutions Base, Almay Primer, NARS concealer, MUFE Face & Body Makeup, Illamasqua Cream Blush in Laid (on fullest part of cheek), Physician's Formula Youthful Wear Illuminating Pressed Powder, Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana (as cheek highlighter), Hard Candy Blush in Pin Up (top of cheek), NYX blush in Taupe (to contour under cheekbone)

Eyes: NARS Smudgeproof Base, Inglot D.S. 501 (grey with shimmer, from lashline into crease), L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Midnight Blue (in crease, outer corner, and along lashline), Urban Decay Eyeshadow in  Verve (to highlight inner corner and blended above the crease), Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Bootycall (Blended above Verve and up to brow bone), MAC eyeliner in Industrial (on lower lashline),  Prestige My Biggest Lashes mascara, Stila Majorlash Mascara, Prestige brow pencil, Ulta brow gel

Lips: Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee with NARS lip gloss in Female Trouble on top


Eyes Open... 

And eyes closed


So, what do you guys think? Are you ready to kick your cooler colors to the curb just yet? have to say, I love the way this combination of lip colors came out! I'll have to think about coming up with a "summery" look using cool shades; navy, grey, and silver always feel unseasonable to me in April (going into May)! I know I'm talking about the seasons a lot with the looks I've been posting lately... I swear I don't believe in strictly sticking to "seasonable" shades, I've just been so inspired by the warm weather lately, in all the creative aspects of my life... Including the colors I reach for when I'm painting my nails or putting on my makeup!


  1. I don't really think about what colours I wear with the seasons... I think it's more that if it's super hot I just wear less of it. Its nowhere near springy here though, haha!

    1. We had 80 degree sunny weather last weekend, and then it started raining! Our weather has been crazy over here. And I know what you mean about wearing less when it's super hot... I hate meltdowns!

  2. I think this is still wearable for spring/summer because all of the colours are blended lightly. I'd feel like it was more wintery if there was heavier eyeliner or darker colours involved.
