Copper and Blue
Not too long ago, I saw a really lovely look on another blog and I thought I would do my own take on it. It was from this post on Messy Wands. I love the simplicity and contrast. Also, I very much enjoy blue and copper!
I ended up looking tanned here, even though I swear the BB Cream looked like a good match indoors. I guess maybe it oxidized. I don't know. I often struggle with foundations and bases and being able to tell whether they match my skin perfectly or not. I think I take a "close enough is good enough" approach on most days.
I like how the lashes on the bottom stand out against the blue! Below is an awkwardly lit shot from the afternoon sun. I was hoping to showcase all the lovely sparkliness and duochrome.
And....really I just took too many photos.
