Tropical Garden

Today I went nuts with this years IsaDora summer products. Everything IsaDora listed in this look are brand new and either from the Tropical Paradise or Sunkissed Bronzing Makeup collection. The eyeshadow palette in Tropical Garden is the definite star product, the combination of this electric blue and luminous green with the shimmery neutrals is just perfect! I matched the bottom lashes and waterline to the electric shades, and for that final pop of light I added NYX Mermaid to the inner corner. Beamin’!

Underage Red

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in the colour Underage Red has been a staple for me lately, it’s a bright red with what I think looks like a drop of coral pink. It just brightens the face and with the super matte finish it stays on the lips foooorever.

The cheek combo is a great one aswell, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso is a light golden apricot shade and when layered with the oldie NARS Highlighting Blush in Albatross which is a suuuper strong pale greenish gold it turns into pure tropical sunlight on ze face.

Rise & Shine

I almost missed daylight today so I’m only giving you a single picture, but I did a quick look this evening using the Inglot Rise & Shine collection eyeshadows! A bunch of fluffy pastels (see them here) which I swished onto the eyelids after messily smudging a black eye pencil along the waterlines and lashlines. Simple as that!

Dark Era

I found the perfect Galliano lipstick!! Dark Era from NYX has that perfect red wine (not purple, thank lawd) tone that applies just patchy enough to blacken in certain areas without looking all crusty. If it was smooth and opaque it would just have been a solid dark lip, not really what you would have seen on the Galliano runway. Spot on I’d say!

The eye look is super simple, it’s just the brown eyeshadow I use on my eyebrows smudged super softly along the lashlines/lids, then topped with a shimmery pinky taupe (which I will write about soon, holy crap I love the Marc Jacobs The Starlet palette!!) in the center of the top lid. I love how pale sparkly lids look against a vampy lip.
