I do sunset looks a lot. I don't do it on purpose, I just end up with these sunset type looks because I love the color combination. When I got this BEAUTIFUL purple shadow from Glamour Doll Eyes called "Tattooed" I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it. That's when I saw this coral/pink color ("Curfew") I'd gotten from Calypso Minerals like forever ago and hadn't used yet and I knew I had to use them together. I mean, how could I resist doing a purple and coral look?? Again. Haha.
What I used:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in "Milk" (I ALWAYS use some sort of tacky base when using loose shadows!)
Glamour Doll Eyes "Tattooed" (purple)
Calypso Minerals "Curfew" (coral)
Glamour Doll Eyes "Ancestry" (highlight)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
L'oreal Carbon Black Voluminous Mascara
ELF Cream Liner "Coffee" to outline
Anastasia "Blonde" brow pencil
Anastasia "Taupe" and "Strawburn" powder duos
Reviva Labs face primer
Neutrogena Healthy Skin liquid foundation "Buff"
Carmindy for Sally Hansen liquid foundation "Porcelain"
Maybelline Dark Circle Treatment "Fair"
Maybelline Superstay 24/7 Concealer (2nd to lightest color)
Covergirl Professional loose powder "Translucent Fair"
ELF studio blush/bronzer duo
Lime Crime "Coquette" lipstick
Revlon "Creamsicle" lip butter
The Glamour Doll Eyes colors I used today:
What their site says about this color (which is from their Super Shadows collection):
"Ancestry is a satin white with rich silk gold undertones and sparkle. It's always neat to have a family heirloom, but I don’t think a brooch can compare to what Ororo Munroe’s family passed down to her; an unlimited ability to control the weather. Step lightly or there could be a downpour in the forecast. "
This color is an AMAZING eye highlight color. I couldn't get it to work for my cheek highlight though.
"Tattooed is a very unique blend of matte and shimmer. This color includes a bright blue mixed with a gorgeous shimmery purple."
This color is GORGEOUS!!! I love blue based purples and this one is perfect!!
So pretty! I'm really liking these Glamour Doll Eyes shadows! So far, in my opinion, they've beaten the colors I got from Beauty From the Earth. I just think the color payoff is a little better which, to be completely 100% honest, I wasn't expecting. I don't really like the way their website is set up but these shadows are worth the little bit of frustration in trying to get through the site.
Another cool thing is that when I was going through the brochures that came with the shadows, there was a section in there that says if you order at least 16 full sized jars (not applicable with special editions), if you enter the code "MUA" you will receive a 50% discount. So if you've got an order of 8 shadows you want from them, make it 16, type in the code, and you just got yourself another 8 shadows for free.
Haha and something funny I wanted to show you quickly. Today was my daughter's 100th day of school so she was supposed to go to school dressed up as a 100 year old. I wasn't really sure how to do that but this is what we came up with haha
I put rollers in her hair, drew on some wrinkles, bought her these $2 from WalMart and pushed the lenses out, and put her in this outfit that I think looks old lady-ish haha. Doesn't she look hilarious??
She was so mad about the wrinkles haha. She goes, "I don't want to look old!"
Haha well that's all for today! I hope you lovely followers of mine have an amazing week! I'll see ya soon!!
