Peacock Smokey Revisited

Peacock Smokey using my CoverGirl Tropical Fusion Quad.

In the one still image I have my face turned to the side to show the eye that came out better. One eye always winds up looking better, what's up w/that? Lol.

Oops, looks like I overdid the blush a tad. I guess blush is something I'm still getting a handle on. Oh well.

This look was inspired by the pink & purple blooms of Spring. It didn't come out quite how I envisioned it, but I hope you all still like it.

What Am I Wearing?

No, not what clothing am I wearing, but what makeup am I wearing. Well, I have to say, I tried something new. What, you ask? I don't remember where I read this tip, but it's very likely that I got it from a blog post by one of my fellow BBN members. (If the one who wrote the tip is reading this, please leave a comment stating the fact. Thank You!) The tip is this: If you use mineral foundation, but you sometimes want the look & feel of a liquid foundation, mix your mineral foundation powder w/your fave moisturizer.

What a concept! I'm always wanting to wear a cream blush (I've heard cream & liquid blushes work best on dry skin, like mine), but you can't put creams on top of powders. It just doesn't work. So, needless to say, I was very excited to come across this tip! I tried it, along w/my cream blush, & loved the results! Anyhoo, below I shall give you a breakdown of the makeup I'm wearing, in order of application.
  • bareMinerals Foundation mixed w/beFine Food Skincare moisturizer, applied w/Foundation brush from billyb beauty (Thank You Billy B!)
  • Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Merlot as cheek color
  • Setting Powder
  • L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Black Liquid Eyeliner
  • Rimmel LYCRA Lash Extender Mascara in Black
And that's it, I'm very happy w/the results!
