Here we have a very subtle and natural yet sparkly and summery look. I wanted to try out all my Urban Decay peachy-goldy colors, and I figured I’d better get on it since summer is almost over (Mister Principessa started classes today, for the love of little green apples!).
I used Urban Decay deluxe eyeshadow in Scratch all over the lid, regular-ass non-deluxe eyeshadow in X up toward the brow, and loose pigment in Shag in the crease. (Remind me to write a post about why UD loose pigments are a HUGE RIPOFF if you buy them at retail price.) I wanted to incorporate my MAC Rose pigment (sent to me by my dear friend and future guest poster Jette), so I used it on the outer 3rd of my lids and mixed it with clear gloss on my lips.
I also layered brown eyeliner over Milani Liquif’eye in Gold and blended them together, which created an interesting old-gold kind of eyeliner color. Liquif’eye is AMAZING, by the way. Dirt cheap, beautiful, and does. not. budge. Check it out–Temptalia gave it an A+! Mascara is Clinique something or other in black-brown, which I like better than black when I’m doing more natural colors.
Look, I did swatches! Here are the colors indoors, with flash. Click for bigger.
Here they are outdoors, in direct sunlight, with no flash.
And here they are outdoors, in indirect light, with the flash. This one is probably the most accurate.
This is the kind of flattering, girly, dare I say “pretty” makeup that I think my mother was praying I’d get on board with someday back when I was in high school, busily smudging black Cover Girl eyeliner all over my eyes and caking my face in powder three shades lighter than my actual skin tone.
OK, Mom, you got me. YOU WERE RIGHT. THIS DOES LOOK BETTER.
