Monday’s Gossamer clouds were lit by the Moonshine

In honor of the new Princess Catherine, today I decided to try a look inspired by princess. Not by Princess Catherine’s lovely wedding look, but by fairy tale princesses of the Disney sort.

  • Monday – from the Good Morning Gorgeous kit, this cerulean blue is light but still bold enough to make a statement
  • Moonshine – silvery lilac high shine color
  • Gossamer – More of a highlight and shimmer than a real color
  • Leatherette – Buxom lashliner. It’s thick, creamy, and stays put all day. I love it!

To get this look, I went heavy on the Monday, especially on the inner lid. I layered Moonshine over the Monday on the outer 2/3 of the lid, and then blended it all together with Gossamer on the browbone and inner corner. I wanted a real Disney princess pink pout, but I am out of town and left my Pretty Amazing Charisma at home – otherwise, that color would have been perfect!

To get the look:

On the eyes:

  • BE Prime Time for eyes
  • Monday buffed from lashes to brow
  • Moonshine in crease and outer 2/3 of lid, also under lower lashline
  • Gossamer highlighting brow and inner V
  • Buxom Leatherette on upper lashline
  • L’oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black

On the face:

  • BE Prime Time for face
  • Original foundation in Fairly Medium
  • Optimist blush
  • Original mineral veil
  • BE lip gloss in Sugared Strawberry

What colors would you use for a fairy tale princess look?

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!

      Thanks, Cheryl! The GMG kit is SO worth it. I love all the colors, but Monday (blue), Tuesday (pink) and Wednesday (green, in yesterday’s post) are my favorites. I just wish they all came in full size pots!
