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.

Some pale shimmery mineral eyeshadows from TiKei

Beautiful Alexandra @aatypi always uses TiKei Mineral Eyeshadow in Stardust as her face highlighter, it always looks so smooth and ethereal on her. Of course I had to try it out for myself! Preferred method of doing it: Ordering 10 SEK (about a dollar) clamshell samples of aaalllllll their pale shimmery eyeshadows and deciding which shade is my favourite! They are messy as hell compared to a full size but you get a bunch of product for the money. It’s a great way to try a new colour out if you don’t want to invest before you know if you like the product.

Check the TiKei website out here, they ship within EU and some other international countries. Free shipping on all orders within Sweden!

TiKei Mineral Eyeshadow. Top row: Fairydust, Lace, Devotion. Bottom row: Stardust, Champagne.

And the verdict?

Stardust which Alexandra uses is the palest, smoothest and most neutral toned of the shimmer, it’s 100% glitter free and just like a soft moon glow on the skin. Fairydust and Champagne are similar in effect but darker, Fairydust is a peachy pink and Champagne more golden. I will experiment using all of them as face highlighters!

The ones that I would skip using on the cheeks are Lace which is pale pink and a bit more sparkly, perfect eye corner highlighter but maybe too glittery for cheeks. Devotion is a tad too dark and pink for my cheeks but HELLO great everyday lid shade. Honestly it’s the colour that gets me going most out of all five.
