Sugar Rush

Todays look! I didn’t get better pictures than this because I had to rush to work, but here’s what I wore! Femme Fatale Cosmetics Sugar Rush applied all over the lids and blended out softly with a bronzer to ground the look a little. Bright purples makes blue-grey-green eyes seem über green!

Illusion

I haven’t done a dramatic eye in a really long time, so today I did something fun! Purple, teal green, orange, gold and white. A contrasting shimmer bomb that feels soft and “cloudy”, just the way I like a really dark eye! I left the skin quite natural with added freckles and strong highlights, plus some evil Frank-n-Furter brows just for fun.

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!
