Sunny make up00:40
The sun is my best friend when I want to feel happy. I don't like the heat that comes with it, but I love me some sun. I wanted to make sunny make-me-happy make up look, that was colorful, yet subtle.
Since I have shimmering coastal scents palette I had a lot of different shades to pick from. If you want a variety of colors I highly recommend purchasing one of their palettes.
I used mixture of rose and orange color on my lid (the orange color form essence Return to Paradise collection in 01 Cockatoo). In the inner corners I used gold eye shadow.
Then I used some chocolate brown color in the crease and outer part of the eyes. I also used the same color as an eyeliner. Then I applied some mascara.
On my cheeks I used my Essence Miami Roller Girl blush in 01 Dates on Skates. As a highlighter I used Catrice Prime and Fine Highlighting Powder for Luminous Glow in 01 Fairy Dust. This is my favorite combination to use on the cheeks. The orange color in the blush palette and gold highlighter.
I have a story about that highlighter. I was in a store looking at the Catrice products and saw that they had discount on some of them. Without even looking at it, I picked up that highlighter, since it was the only shade there and went to pay for it. The saleswoman said to me that this product does not have any discount, because the discount is on the other shade of that highlighter. I decided to buy it anyway. When I came home I was horrified by the rose color in the packaging. But when I tried it on it was a pure light gold color on my cheeks. It is such a nice color, but in the packaging it looks totally different. Looks can be deceiving (doh! since I haven't even tried the tester :) ).
On the lips I used Maybelline Color Sensational lipstick in 605 Precious Beige. On top of that I put H&M lip gloss in Summer Gold. I wanted to achieve beige, yet gold looking lips.
I was wondering what do you prefer? Orange/gold cheeks or pretty rose/pink ones?
