Tropical

Hey, Everyone! ☺

It seems like forever since I've done a blog post!  I've had so much going on, and I have been working with a new camera.  I've been tweaking the settings to get the images just right, and it has been a lengthy learning process!  I should do a blog post of all the makeup "test" looks that I've done and why I didn't post them.  It would be a rather impressive collage of strange pictures!   I've never been a student of photography, but it is a science that I've gained a great deal of respect for. 

Anyway!  I loved the results from this latest look that I did, so I am happy to post this makeup look! (Finally!)

For this week's makeup, I am using the BH Cosmetics Tropical Shimmer Palette.  It seems to have all the colors that I am craving this time of year.  I love the fresh pastels grouped with neutrals- it's a perfect palette for Spring and Summer.  (And here in Arizona, Summer is our main season .☺)

I wanted a colorful look featuring a hint of blue on the lid, blending that out to a deeper crease color, then softly transitioning that out to a warm tone. 
I really like how it turned out.  I hope you do too!








EYES:

♥ UDPP
♥ Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk to lid
♥ Urban Decay Shadow in "Strange" (pale vanilla color) from brow to crease
♥ Shadow 1 (light teal) to lid.  
I applied this close to the lash line and on the inner corner of my lower lash line. I just wanted this color to peek out. ☺
♥ Shadow 2 (plum) to crease
♥ Shadow 3 (melon) as transition color from crease to brow
♥ Shadow 4 (deep plum) to outer V
♥ Shadow 5 (orange) to lower lash line
♥ Black mascara and eyeliner
♥ Red Cherry lashes in WSP


FOUNDATION & BLUSH:

♥ Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in Shade 120
♥ Maybelline Pressed Powder in Cameo
♥ City Color "Be Matte Blush" in Fresh Melon


LIPS:

♥ Milani Lipstick in Dulce Caramelo
♥ Nyx Round Lip Gloss in Bronze



I am absolutely loving the colors of this palette! I will be using this one A LOT!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I truly love it when you do ♥
Stay on the lookout for more videos! I am just perfecting the settings on my camera ☺
See you soon!

Have a blessed week ♥
xoxo,
Colleen
