Beauty Broadcast Live was so fun this morning! #thankyouforbeingafriend :) I had lots of questions about the makeup I was wearing, so I thought I'd do a "Face of the Day" post about it. As soon as I put on my "I Love Makeup" shirt- I felt the need to go with pink and purple! It's fun, bright, and may be a bit much for some peoples' taste. But I've been wearing a lot of neutrals lately, so I figured, heck- go big or go home! :) Here's what I used...
-Cover Girl Whipped Creme Foundation (#325 Buff Beige) *Review coming soon!!*
-MAC Pro Longwear Concealer (NW20)
-Maybelline Shine Free Pressed Powder (Golden)
-Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
-Flower Beauty Blush/Bronzer Duo (Gloriously Golden- just used the blush)
This is my biggest palette! It's the 252 Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette from Coastal Scents. There are three separate palettes that lift out, and I used the one with pinks & purples. I first applied my Wet n Wild Fergie eyeshadow primer.
Step 1: Apply the shimmery medium pink all over the lid. (I also used a bit of white around the tear duct, but forgot to identify that shade on the palette).
Step 2: Apply the matte purple on the outer part of the lid, and blend into the crease, pulling the color upward and out slightly to create the "outer V"
Step 3: With a tiny bit of the bright pink on a brush, blend above the purple crease shade, creating a "halo" of pink that will be visible when the eye is open.
Step 4: Using a smudge brush, blend the shimmery purple under the eye from inner to outer corner.
More eye products!
-I used Milani Ultrafine Liquid Eyeliner in Black Vinyl across the upper lashline, creating a slight wing.

-Topped off the look with Cover Girl's new Flamed Out mascara (review is coming soon!)
-Also wearing false lashes- Eylure Katy Perry colllection in Oh Honey!
-Tarte Glamazon Lipstick in Whimsy
-Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Pop
Hope you enjoyed this look! It's always fun to play around with those huge palettes because the options seem endless! Sometimes people say they are too overwhelming. If you feel that way, when choosing shades, pretend like you're building your own quad or trio. Don't feel like you need to use a dozen different shades on your eye just because dozens of shades are there. Just concentrate on picking light, medium, and dark colors that you think would look good together. Sometimes it takes some trial and error to determine what truly does look good together... but that's the fun of makeup! Don't like it? Just wash it off! :) Would you like to see more "paint by number" makeup posts like this with large palettes?
