Seashore and Shimmer

For this week's makeup look I wanted to do something easy, bright, and fresh. Inspired by my daydreams of sitting on a beach somewhere with a Mai Tai and a terrible sunburn... :-(
(I KNOW!! It's terrible! I'm so pale I need SPF 500 and a protective tarp at all times!)

Anyway- I will pass on the sunburn, and move back on to my daydreams...

Aloha everyone :-)




Here are some of the tools used to create this look:


EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk to lid and waterline
♥ Ulta Shadow in Naked from brow to crease
♥ Sugarpill shadow in Mochi to lid and crease
♥ Rimmel Shadow in Spicy Bronze from crease, gently blended out
to brow bone
♥ Nyx Roll on Shimmer in Sea Foam to lid
♥ A very light dab of Sparkleez Glitter in Ice Blue to lid
(adhered with a touch of Eyeshadow Sealer from LA Splash)
♥ Black Eyeliner and mascara
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in 138's


BLUSH & CONTOUR:

♥ Nyx Powder Blush in Mauve applied to apples of cheeks
♥ Coastal Scents Contour Palette
Dark brown shade used to contour cheek bones, temples, nose, and jaw.
White shade used to highlight center of forehead, under eyes, tip of nose, and chin. 
 
 
LIPS:
 
♥ N.Y.C Lipstick in Sugarplum
♥ Nyx Round Lip Gloss in Cafe Latte


Even though I'm not currently on vacation or planning one at the moment, these beautiful
colors put me in the right mindset. Hopefully it inspired you as well :-)

Best wishes to you! 
I hope you have a wonderful week :-) 
xoxo, 
Colleen ♥

P.S.  Don't forget my Spring Giveway is still going on for another week.  Feel free to
