Simple with a Twist

Here is another go at simpler eyes.  I didn't get my flick just quite right, as my one somewhat droopy eye crease tried to eat it up, but it was good enough for the time.  I'm sure the metallic gold brows distracted from that just as they should have!  :)

I absolutely adore Tweak blush on myself.  It might be my new favorite blush!  So many blushes to little time on this earth to wear them all enough.

The new Cover FX powder compact is most definitely not matte.  As you can see, it's got a nice natural glow to it.  I applied it lazily with the included sponge pad and was surprised at how light it looked on me (thus the gentle dusting of bronzer all over afterward).  It did wear well through a long and rather humid day, so I give it big points for that.  Also, no annoying creasing or bunching up in my expression lines.  Hooray!

Bite Beauty Lip Lacquer Aurora

If you are wondering about the lippie, I will tell you that I am in love with this color and am sure it was made to be worn with Tweak.  It's a tacky formula that tastes yummy and sweet (a bit like honey).  My lips weren't dry from it.  The applicator needs several dips to get my lips covered.  It stayed on good, although after hours of wear it left me with more of a stained balm kind of look.  What I'm trying to say here is that it doesn't retain its shiny lacquer appearance for much more than an hour or so?  Something like that.

Thanks for stopping by!
