Flirty Neutrals with a Pop of Color

Hey everyone!

There is never a bad time to wear neutrals.  They are beautiful day to night, and look beautiful on every skin tone.

For this week's makeup look, I wanted to do a softly blended neutral eye look, and add a zing of color.  I absolutely couldn't resist after I picked up an AWESOME eyeshadow pencil this week.
I wanted to do something wearable and daring.  A bit flirty :-)

*FUN FACT*  Most of the cosmetics used this week are UK brands!!
This is the most delightful British Invasion ever!

Let's get on with it!






Here are the tools used:


EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk to lid
♥ MUA Cosmetics Palette in Glamour Nights


♥  Shade #6 (buff) to brow bone down to crease
♥ Shade #1 (white) to inner corner
♥ Shade #2 (gold) to center of lid and lower inner corner
♥ Shade #3 (bronzey brown) to crease blended out to brow bone
♥ Shade #4 (black) to outer V and crease
♥ Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Pencil in Blamed Blue
to lower lash line
♥ Black eyeliner to lash and water line
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in 43's
♥ Black mascara
*Note* I added a tiny gemstone to the outer corner of my lower lash line.
It's tricky to see in the photos, but it's an optional step :-) 

BLUSH:

♥ The darker pink from the MUA Artiste Collection :-)

LIPS:

♥ MUA Lipstick in Shade #6
♥ MUA Sheer Finish Lip Gloss in "Can't Stop"



I love how wearable and versatile this turned out!
Hope you like it as well :-) 

Have a wonderful week!!  Thanks again for visiting! I truly love it when you do!

xoxo, 
Colleen

P.S.  Huge project almost complete!! Very excited.  STAY TUNED!
