From time to time I get weary of using the same brown or taupe shadow (as much as I love a good taupe), and have the urge to do something a bit more colorful. Today I decided to put to use a forgotten item that I purchased over a year ago: Anastasia's Pacific Coast Palette (part of the spring 2012 "Wish You Were Here" set). I like the look worn by the model shown on the packaging and decided I would try to replicate it.
I have a love/hate relationship with blues and greens. I love all variations of aqua, teal and tiffany blue when used in clothing, jewelry, home decor, candles and glassware, and so on, but when it comes to blue or green on my eyes I'm often worried about crossing that fine line between a fun pop of color and scary clown territory!
I tend to put more thought into my blush and lip choices when wearing blues or greens. I try to stick to a light caramel nude or an understated peach and coordinating cheek color. Today, I wanted to try out a new purchase: Laura Mercier's Bonne Mine Stick Face Colour in the shade Coral Glow. Although it looks as if it would be very pigmented and bright, the color becomes quite sheer once blended out. For lips I used Trish McEvoy's Classic Lip Color in the shade Natural 16 and Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in Illegal along with the Guava gloss that came in the Anastasia set.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy the rest of your weekend!
