tarte: Seashell Pink cream shadow

Today’s look was by special request! If you have a certain look or colors that you’d like for me to use, let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to make it happen!

tarte makes these little pots of Amazonian Clay cream shadows, and they’re fantastic. As someone who struggles with cream shadows – they often fade and crease on my oily lids – these seem to stay in place all day on me, when worn over an eye primer. I love that you can build up the color from sheer to intense, and this Seashell Pink shade is slightly metallic looking.

You can find tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream eyeshadow at Ulta or Sephora or as part of a four piece kit on QVC.

bareMinerals: Pretty Amazing Allure

You know by now that I love the bareMinerals Pretty Amazing lipcolor line. I have all of them, except for a couple of QVC-exclusive shades. Pretty Amazing Allure is one that I couldn’t wait to get my hands (lips?) on because it is such a pretty peach shade, and I am all about peach. Orange is my favorite color, but doesn’t make a great lipstick, so I happily settle for peach. As with all the full-color Pretty Amazings lipcolors, the color is long lasting – just what I needed when I wore this look to my first day at my new job!

On the eyes:

  • tarte Lifted eye primer
  • bareMinerals Queen Phyllis from lash to brow, concentrating heavier on the lid

bareMinerals: Cameo Pink Primer Shadow

The bareMinerals primer shadows rock. They’re a primer and an eyeshadow in one, and the color is buildable, so you can have just a sheer wash of color or build it up for more intensity. I love the Cameo Pink shade because it’s soft and warm and brightening. I was shocked the first time I applied it because based on the “pink” in the name, I was expecting it to be much pinker. But when you think about classic cameo pins, it really is that lovely warm peachy pink shade. Plus, it stays put all day whether worn alone or as a base for another shadow.

On the eyes:

  • bareMinerals Cameo Pink primer shadow from lash to crease
  • Sleek MakeUp Bohemian palette: dark brown in crease and to tightline upper and lower lashes, cream color in inner corner and under brow, rosy bronze color under lower lashes
  • Mally volumizing mascara

On the lips:

  • Sephora Pantone Tangerine Tango lipgloss

On the face:

  • Laura Geller Ethereal Spackle primer
  • Smashbox Halo foundation in Fair
  • bareMinerals Warmth

NYX Lipstick: Apollo

NYX Cosmetics makes these super affordable lipsticks that I’ve just fallen in love with over the past year. They come in a whopping 126 shades, and are mineral based, paraben-free, and my favorite (non-high end) lip product at just $4.00 a piece. Apollo is a golden bronze brown, which is a shade I never go for in a lip product! I tend to stay with berry tones and pinks and reds, but I thought I could pull this warm shade off if I wore it in more of a monochromatic look.

On the eyes:

  • tarte Lifted eye primer
  • Sleek MakeUp i-Divine Bohemian palette
  • Sephora brown eyeliner
  • Mally volumizing mascara

On the lips:

  • NYX Round Lipstick in Apollo

bareMinerals: Polished Pewter primer shadow

Umm…. I loved this color combo so much that I wore it for three days IN A ROW!  The bareMinerals primer shadows make for such a great base color. I usually use them as a base to make another powder shadow pop, but I’ve actually just been wearing them alone on the lid lately, with a powder shadow in the crease, like today. The Polished Pewter shade is especially lovely because it’s a really nice greyish taupe. I paired it with a medium plum matte shade, but it would look great with any number of shadows, including forest green, dark grey, black, burgundy, and navy.

On the eyes:

  • bareMinerals Prime Time primer shadow (PTPS) in Polished Pewter
  • bareMinerals Wearable Plum Light on outer half of eyelid, and Wearable Plum Medium blended into crease and under lower lashes
  • bareMinerals Round The Clock eyeliner in 5pm
  • Mally volumizing mascara

On the lips:

  • bareMinerals Pretty Amazing lipcolor in Confidence

On the face:

  • Laura Geller Spackle primer in Ethereal
  • tarte Amazonian Clay foundation in Ivory
  • tarte blush in Dazzled
  • bareMinerals Warmth
