I hauled a few new things during the Sephora VIB 15% off sale that's going on right now, and I was itching to try them out. Plus, I dyed my hair (more on that in another post), and that was making me feel EXTRA SASSY. My cheeks always look brighter in real life than in photos; this reminded me a bit of a less-exaggerated china doll look. So much so that I randomly got the song "Coin Operated Boy" stuck in my head! I'm sure the crazy-red hair isn't hurting that effect.
Here's what I used:
Face: Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Protective Base, NARS concealer (under eyes, on nose, and on chin blemish), MAC Pro Longwear Concealer (on redness on cheeks and near jaw), The Body Shop All In One Face Base patted on t-zone with sponge, Illamasqua cream blusher in Laid (on fullest part of the cheek), NYX blush in Taupe (in contour), Benefit High Beam (to highlight cheek and brow bone), Make Up For Ever Blush Powder in No.5 (on fullest part of cheek), finally I brushed some of the All In One Face Base to blend my cheeks with a fluffy brush.
Eyes: Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #13 (lashline to browbone), Make Up For Ever Blush Powder in No. 5 (on outer 1/2 of lid, avoiding lash line), NARS Daphne (wet to line upper lash line, dry in the crease), Inglot matte shadow in 352 (to highlight brow bone and inner corner), Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Baked (on lower lashline), Prestige My Biggest Lashes on upper lashes, Stila Major Lash on outer corner lashes and bottom lashes, Prestige Eyebrow Pencil, Ulta brow gel.
Lips: Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural in N35
|Finally gave my brows some much-needed TLC!|

Sorry guys, I feel like everything looks a little bit washed out in my photos... I need better lighting, and a better camera probably couldn't hurt things either. Better add those to the wishlist... Nonetheless, coral and purple with bright sheer pink lips-- very fun! I might try another version of this come summer.
