Shades of Dawn

I’m crazy about cheek makeup right now – looots of bronzer, blush and highlighter is what I’m craving! Pair it with mascara bombed lashes and you have the basic look that I’ve kept going back to lately. Here I’m wearing it with some extra smokey matte bronze around the eyes and a nude lip. More about the lippie tomorrow, it’s so perfect!

Briar Rose

Today I’m wearing the BareMinerals eyeshadow duo that I wrote a post about yesterday (both on eyes and as face highlighter) paired with plummy tones on cheeks, lips and nails. The clash between plum and warm coppery gold is fantastic, a 100% royal combo!
