LOTD: Plum and Peach

25 Jul

I wore this last night to sushi with my friend Elizabeth. I decided to try a neutral look outside of my comfort zone of blue eyeliner and glitter..seems a little backwards, doesn’t it? I liked how it turned out and I loved the color combo of purpley eyes and peachy lips.

Glasses! Considering getting another pair as these don’t match anything. They are snazzy, though.

Excuse the weird face, I was trying to show you my shirt (it has butterflies along the bottom!) but I was squinting into the sun and my glasses were crooked and everything just went awry.

Products used:

– Milani Shadow Eyez Pencil in Winter White

– Sleek Au Naturel Palette: matte purple & champagne shimmer

– Palladio Herbal Eyeliner in Brown

– Covergirl Lashblast Mascara in Black

– Wet ‘n Wild Lipstick in Blushing Bali

– NYX Lipgloss in Nude Peach

How-to:

1. Apply a primer and a white/champagne base all over the lid and in the inner corner of the eye to highlight.

2. With a flat eyeshadow brush, pack on a shimmery champagne or peach color all over the lid and along the lower lashline.

3. With a fluffy crease brush, lightly brush a dark purple shadow in a v shape on the outer part of the eye.

4. Blend the edges of the purple into the lid color.

5. Run more of the purple shadow underneath the outer half of the lower lashline with a smudge brush.

6. Smudge a thin line of brown eyeliner along the upper and half of the lower lashlines.

7. Apply your favorite mascara (or your least favorite, if you have to use it up) and you’re finished!

Here’s a few shots of our family hibiscus. It blooms all summer and it’s absolutely gorgeous 😀

That’s my foray into neutral makeup…probably the last for a long time as I like my bright colors and summer’s the perfect time to break em out and not look like a streetwalker. Cheers everyone 🙂
