Yo Huge Post

I'm still here!  Still slapping random makeup on my face most days.  :)  This is a big ol' catch up sort of post.  You know you love it.  I'm going to hit on key things used for each look, as my poor brain can remember.  Feel free to ask about anything specific - I may or may not be able to clarify!

This first look features the Wet 'N Wild Comfort Zone palette.  It's my first time using Wet 'N Wild shadows!  Hooray!  The texture is a bit odd to me, but overall I really like them.  The lip gloss is BareMInerals Moxie in Dynamo and I believe the blush is Vincent Longo Sandalwood.  Also, I used the Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Jungle as liner.

Below is the same look, way later in the day, but with Guerlain Rouge G Gigolo on my lips!  It absolutely has a touch of purple/plum to it in real life but I simply cannot get it to photograph properly.  I don't own Gigolo...yet.  :)

The next look is a funky one featuring Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense #15 lipstick.  The eyes feature some shades from the UD Vice palette.  Blush is Illamasqua Morale.  For foundation, I mixed Kat Von D Lock It 42 with YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat BR20 (better wear and color than Lock It alone, but still started to break down after about 8 hours).

There is actually no purple involved on the eyes here!  The bit on the lowers that looks purple is just dark grayish eyeshadow smudged over a magenta pencil.

Above and below features the Too Faced Smoky palette (top row + white), Smashbox BB Cream in Fair, BECCA Gypsy blush, UD Smoked eyeliner pencil, and Fresh Sugar Rose.

Below, is an after work, worn and tired face!  I'm wearing Dr. Jart + Renewalist BB Cream over Benefit's stick primer (one or the other or both gave me some oxidization), Givenchy Bucolic Poppy blush, and Dior Aurora 01 bronzer.  The lipstick is YSL Glossy Stain #14.

Close up on the eyes shows RBR Solstice Halcyon on the lid, RBR Umber Firefinch in the crease and on the lowers, RBR Alabaster Starling in the inner corner, and Milani Blue Definition LE pen liner.

Below is just an eye closeup where I'm wearing BareMinerals The Truth quad, which pulls so warm on me!  I have the MUFE turquoise pencil liner in my waterline topped with Makeup Geek Poolside eyeshadow.  The top liner is Stila Smudge Stick in Damsel.  Check out my naked brows!  Just clear Perfekt gel in them.

This next look is a strange one.  I think it looked even better in person.  I used Lorac's 3D-licious eyeshadow single, which is close to MAC Club.  I put Illamasqua Static pigment in my inner corner, which was super weird but I ended up liking it.  Bobbi Brown Blackberry eyeshadow provided depth in the crease, outer corner, and on the lowers.  I'm wearing Illamasqua Lover blush and Tarte Moody lipstick blotted.

The liner is a black glitter pencil from Tokidoki and I tried out naked brows yet again, with just clear gel.  I think I'm done with that phase now.  Ha ha!

Okay - love this next one!  I used Tarte AC Stellar blush, Sephora + Pantone Astral Glaze in Arabesque on the lips, and Tarte's True Blood palette on my eyes.

I'm digging how the blush, eyes, and lips all came together.

Next is a simple look using Illamasqua's Ore Pigment, Stila Sparkle liquid liner in Rock Candy, and Dior Addict Gloss in Diablotine.  Unfortunately I've no idea what blush I used here.

I know I started the eyes with the BareMinerals Prime Time brightening eye primer, which provides a soft gold sheen all over.

Well, friends, that is all for now.  I hope you enjoyed all the looks!  Thanks for stopping by.  :)
