Jade had Hope and Courage while picking the Water Lily

Todays main colors are Water Lily (lavender) and Jade. I wanted to try a decisively purple and green eye look, but the jade color over the water lily turned into a greyish green color. It was still a pretty effect, but not quite as green as I was going for. This is precisely why I love doing this: sometimes, experimenting with colors creates something really spectacular, and sometimes the effect isn’t quite what you envisioned in your head.

The colors used today:

  • Water Lily
  • Jade
  • Buxom Lashliner in Leatherette
  • Turn On
  • Pretty Amazing Courage
  • Buxom Hope
  • Miracle blush

Clockwise: Turn On, Water Lily, Jade

From top: Seamless Blending, Eyeliner, Foil&Fuse, Quick Shadow & Crease

Pretty Amazing Courage, Buxom Hope

On the eyes:

  • Water Lily foiled over lid, from lashes into crease
  • Jade buffed into crease, and under lower lashes
  • Turn On highlighting browbone and inner V
  • Buxom Leatherette lashliner along upper lashes
  • Buxom mascara

On the lips:

  • BE Pretty Amazing lipcolor in Courage
  • Buxom lipgloss in Hope

On the face:

  • BE Prime Time Original Primer
  • Original foundation in Fairly Medium
  • Miracle blush
  • Original mineral veil

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!
