Bright Pink and Silver- For Marina ♥

Recently I have had the pleasure and delight to meet some absolutely STELLAR beauty bloggers!! We have so much in common, and you have been so encouraging and supportive- I've found some great friends, and what feels like SISTERS.  You ladies seriously make my day.  I love having your company present through Twitter, Facebook, Blogger, etc.  You have no idea how it helps me get through my torturous workdays. You really are bursts of pure sunlight to me.

Well one of those very special sisters, Marina from mCubedMakeup, asked me to do a look using bright pink and silver.  So this is for her.




For this look, first I took care of my foundation, powder, and brows. Then I primed my lids with UDPP.  Next I applied Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk on the lid itself to create a tacky surface.  Then picking some bright pinks from my Coastal Scents 252 Palette, I started blending them into my crease and up and out to soften harsh edges.  I used a soft vanilla shadow for my brow highlighter shade.  For the silver I used Nyx Metal Mania Loose Powder in Silver Pearl.

Don't kill me...but I applied this to my lid with a SPONGE TIP APPLICATOR!!  AHH!!!!  With glitters and loose metallics, I do this on purpose because I don't want the fallout that a brush will give me.  I want it packed on a small surface and easy to adhere to a tacky surface. Easy. Done. No mess. :-)

You'll notice I did some contouring in the outer V and corners with black shadow to add some depth.
Then I lined my eyes, applied mascara, and popped on some Red Cherry Lashes (#62).

Blush: Nyx Dark Shadows Palette
Lips: Nyx Round Lipstick in Doll, and Doll Pink Gloss.
Lenses: Geo Ultra in Black 




I hope you like it!! It's quite fun if your in the mood for a burst of color :-)

Thanks again to all my ladies. You're very special and I thank you for making me smile.

XOXO,
Colleen

P.S.
Don't be shy :-)  Feel free to join the party :-) Find me on Twitter and say hello. I'm usually ranting about my annoying coworker- if not, I need to rant more (my workplace is a TV sitcom).  It's good times.  Promise.  @VanityandVodka
