Moonstone

Hey everyone!

For this week's makeup look, I take inspiration from one of my favorite gemstones. :-)

Rainbow moonstone has always been a favorite of mine.  I wear it on a daily basis and always have it with me (ask my husband). Aside for the comfort in brings me, it shimmers nearly every color when you catch it in the light.

So for this week's look, I was inspired by a necklace I wore for the first time this week :-)



 In this photo you can't see the rainbow that the moonstone reflects, 
but it is amazing and lovely in every way :-)

INSPIRED!   


EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk to lid
♥ Ulta Shadow in Naked from Brow to crease
♥ Sugarpill Loose Shadow in Lumi to inner corner and lid
♥ Sugarpill Loose Shadow in Paperdoll to center of lid
I love how this color gives this look a beautiful glow :-)
♥ Sugarpill Pressed Shadow in Bulletproof to outer corner, crease
and lower lash line
♥ Mauve shadow from the Coastal Scents Eyeshadow/ Blush Palette
(any neutral shade will work) applied above crease
and blended out
♥ Nyx Pressed Shadow in Princess Pink used to diffuse mauve color up and out
♥ Black eyeliner applied to lash and water line
♥ Red Cherry Lashes in 523's
♥ Black Liquid liner
♥ Black mascara


BLUSH & CONTOUR:

♥ Nyx Powder Blush in Amber 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:

♥ NYC Lipstick in Sugarplum
♥ Juice Beauty Reflecting Gloss in Pink


It just now dawned on me what a FABULOUS idea it is to grab inspiration from JEWELRY!!
I can't wait to tell my husband! He will be THRILLED!! ;-)

I hope you have a wonderful week!! :-) 
Thank you so much for visiting, I truly love it when you do!
xoxo,
Colleen

P.S.
BIG project still underway! Stay tuned!
