Eyeshadow - January 15th, 2012
It was supposed to snow today. It did, but it didn’t stick. Since this is the first year in many that I don’t have to worry about getting myself to work in foul weather, I was disappointed that it hasn’t stuck. Oh well! I picked icy blue colors for eyeshadow today to celebrate the Snow Day anyway!
I also tried to use products I haven’t used in a while – I have to remind myself to do this or some products never get any love! I guess you could say I have kind of a lot of cosmetics, lol…
The lighter blue eyeshadow is Bluebell from J. Lynne Cosmetics. It’s an icy blue satin color. The dark blue color is Gangrenous from My Pretty Zombie. This is such an awesome color!! It’s a teal/lavender/green shifty color that’s hard to describe but pretty to look at. I used Nijiro from Fyrinnae to highlight. I pulled out Bare Escentuals’ Buxom Lashliner in Blue Velvet. It’s a cream liner in a cobalt blue with sparkles. It’s really pretty, I need to use it more often! I love the sparkles.
Today’s blush is Revolution Organics’ Freedom Glow Beauty Balm in Blushed. It’s a great cream blush in a portable stick formula. The pink color is flattering on a wide range of complexions and it’s got good staying power. You can use it on your lips too, although I didn’t today. Instead, I’m wearing RockABetty Beauty’s Gloss Wash lip gloss in Flesh Eaters. Flesh Eaters is a color shifting pale nude to soft violet. I really like RockABetty’s gloss formula and have two more shades on the way!
It’s possible we might see some snow tonight. Cross your fingers!
