4th of July Night Sky- With the 252 Palette!

Exciting times, friends!  My Coastal Scents Ultimate 252 palette has arrived and I'm on a rampage.  There is no need for me to leave the house for any reason, EVER!  I had a list of palettes that I was wanting to purchase, but that list hit the trash as soon as I saw this massive assortment of color.

SO let the fun begin:
The look for this week is inspired by the 4th of July.  NOPE.  Not going to paint the American Flag on my face.  NOPE.  No red, white, and blue stars and stripes anywhere to be seen.  I'm sticking with my style and going with what is beautiful about the 4th of July- for me.

Now I live in the desert, and currently it's 200 degrees outside and the pavement is molten lava. Yuck. HOWEVER, I am lucky to have some of the prettiest sunsets and nightfalls I've ever seen. Imagine that with sparkly fireworks :-)

For the look, I selected colors that were reminiscent of a beautiful July nightfall. Gold, fuscia, deep blues, and purples. Then I applied Sugarpill sequined lashes in Baby Dewdrop.  Then I layered Red Cherry 203's on top to create a massively glamorous lash line.  White liner and shadow was applied in the waterline and I added some little rhinestones under the eye for some added drama and sparkle.

I don't recall which blush I used (Sorry!), but I know for sure that the lips are Smashbox gloss in Fame.

Yes!! I've been playing a lot with lenses lately, and I couldn't resist these giant circle lenses. It's amazing how they can completely change your appearance. These are from LensVillage.com and are extremely comfortable :-)
 



I hope you like it :-)  Please have a safe and happy 4th of July (regardless of which country you are in!!)

xoxo,
Colleen
