FOTD: Aquamarine and Purple (Using Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love the shimmery aqua tone of Make Magic in the Morphe Live in Color Artistry Palette (you can read more about this palette here) and thought it would look beautiful on the lids alongside Heart and Harmony.  I really love how the shades blended together in this look.  I used Heart (a matte pink) in the crease and it created a blue-ish shade where the edges met Make Magic.  This step really added extra dimension to the look.

Naturally Sparkly With Inglot 114 Pigment

 

Inglot 114 Pure Pigment Look

Inglot 114 Pure Pigment Look

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been enjoying trying out products from Inglot recently and picked up one of their pure pigments – 114 – to try out.  This pigment really stood out to me, as it contains a gorgeous mix of light blue, green and aqua sparkles. 

The product can give a softer sparkle when patted on dry or yield a high shine glimmer when applied damp with a mixing medium.  I think it’s such a beautiful shade and can’t wait to experiment with more combinations!

Flamingo (Using Too Faced Just Peachy Palette)

Flamingo Look

Flamingo Look

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The second look in my Bird Series (you can read more about the series here) is based around the Flamingo.  When I was browsing photos of flamingos online, I was struck by the variety in the colours of these birds.  The colour schemes seemed to range from cream, peach, coral, pink and vivid red.  I knew that flamingos could come in different colours but hadn’t realised there was quite so much diversity.  Nice to learn something new!

I chose to base my look around flamingos with white, cream, peach and coral-red feathers, along with black-ish beak tips (see photo below) For this look, I incorporated the white, cream, peach and coral-red on the lid and deep brown/black on the upper lashline.  I also used a bright peachy-coral on the lips to tie in with the bright coral red feathers.

You can view full face shots, along with the cheek and lip colours I used, in this post.

The Bird Series includes looks based around different types of birds and their colour schemes.  You can read more about the series and view posts here.

Tip: I used the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette for this particular look.  This particular palette has a good range of creams, peaches and plums to choose from and fitted with the colour scheme for this look.

Neutrals With Pink (Using Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ve been wearing a lot of bright eyeshadow combinations recently so I fancied trying something more neutral today.  I used shades from the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Palette for the eyes and finished the look off with a hot pink lipstick and pink blusher to add some vibrancy.

To complement the look: I used MAC Dollymix Blusher on the cheeks, MAC Beaming Blush Extra Dimension Skinfinish Highlighter to highlight the cheekbones and Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipstick in Homecoming Queen on the lips (you can read more about the Too Faced Peach Kiss Lipsticks here).

Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipsticks

 

Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipsticks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m a huge fan of the Too Faced Peaches and Cream products and am absolutely loving their new Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Long Wear Lipsticks.  I first purchased the shade ‘Breakfast Club’ and was so impressed that I ended up picking up two more shades – Got Peach? and Peach Beach.

I love the vibrancy, opacity, smoothness and comfortable feel of these lipsticks.  They smell delicious too, due to their refreshing peachy, vanilla-esque scent.

If you are on the look out for a new matte lipstick with incredible pigment, opacity and comfort, then I highly recommend the Too Faced Peach Kiss range!
