Eyeshadow - February 1st, 2013
It’s the curse of the beauty blogger. You want to write about your EOTD’s regularly, but you hate it when you can’t link to the product websites because the colors are discontinued. But you still want to wear these colors because they’re pretty, and if you only ever wear colors that are current, you’ll never use up any of your makeup! Gah! My solution is to wear a bunch of discontinued stuff at once and this will just be a mostly linkless post. C’est la vie, and all that!
I wanted to wear some soft brown colors today, to contrast with yesterday’s BRIGHT PURPLE. I used Pearl, a basic beige color with gold sparkles from Borghese on the lid. The crease color is Spice, a medium brown color from Raw Natural Minerals. It’s a great brown because it’s very blendable and easy to use. The brow bone and inner corner highlight is a cream color from L’Occitane called Helene. I also used more Spice on the upper and lower lashlines.
The blush is Clotted from Detrivore Cosmetics. Clotted is CURRENT! It’s a deep, dark red, but applied with a very, very light hand (like, just pick up a crumb or two on your brush) I think it gives a nice dramatic look that isn’t over the top. It’s just a color I love to wear!
The lipstick is MAC Viva Glam Cyndi.
