Larkspur Inspired Makeup and Honeycolor.com Lenses!



     The Larkspur is a beautiful flower that has been known for centuries for its holistic, medicinal, and spiritual properties.  It is also the July Birth Flower.  AND wouldn't you know it?  I'm a July baby!!  So in celebration of July babies, I'm presenting this look for you!




     First I completed my foundation routine using Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse.  (I've been getting a lot of questions... that's the one foundation I use!).  I always finish with a good translucent powder to set everything, then complete my brows.

     For the eyes I primed with Urban Decay Primer Potion and Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk.  Then  I dusted on a brow highlighter color...anything will work, pale white, pink, whatever.

Next, the color!  The shadows for this look are from My Beauty Addiction. Colors for tonight are:
Orchid- Pale purple on lid.
Royal- Deep blue on outer corner, crease, and lower lid.
Aquadise- Delicate teal used to blend Royal gently up to to the brow. (I call it a "blender shade" in this purpose.)
Jealous- This is a beautiful bright green that I used on the majority of my lower lid.
I also used Aspen Summit #23 from Sephora as my bright color in the inner corner of my eyes. It's a bright silky white, and I can't seem to live without it lately.


LASHES! 
     The lashes are TOXIC from Sugarpill. I can't even explain them! They are wispy, bold, and spottified with lime green strands!!  PERFECT for this look!

Blush is from the Lauren Luke Vintage Glams palette, and lips are NARS Shrinigar lipstick followed with a lovely gloss called Lola by Bare Escentuals.

LENSES!! 
     The lenses featured tonight are from Honeycolor.com and they are the Angelic series. I absolutely adore them!  Breathtaking!  The color that I am wearing are the  Princess Green, and they are so incredibly pigmented, easy to apply, and comfortable...I love the delicate boldness of them. Honeycolor.com has an incredible selection of lenses, so definitely check them out if you love to play with lenses like I do :-)  AND there is currently a SALE going on! My favorite!


Happy birthday to all the July babies out there!!  I hope you like my look for the week!! Thank you again so much for all the support and encouragement!  It is SUNSHINE to me, and I grow each day.
Thank you.  THANK YOU!!
XOXO,
Colleen

  9. Just come across your blog and im in love with the eye shadow looks you come up with just absolutely stunning wish i was as brave as you to wear such bold colours. Sounds silly but ive always been a bit scared of eye shadow so easy to get it very wrong i think, also love that lip gloss. Now a follower and look forward to seeing more exciting looks x
