The Bull Dog named Iris showed her Strength in her 5″ Stilettos

This is a look that packs a big punch, but is still pretty easy to accomplish. The main star of the show today is the Buxom Smoky Eye Stick in 5″ Stilettos.  I added some pink (Terrier) and some bold blue (Bull Dog) for an extra punch of color, and finished it off with a bold lip (bright red cooled down with an iridescent lipgloss).

Just like yesterday, I had some staying issues with the Smoky Eye stick and some creasing issues with the two shadows. The eye primer that I used today is Kat VonD’s eye primer in Smoke. I think I’m about ready to give up on this product. It’s a great smoke colored primer, seems to set quickly, but I think it might be a primer that’s better worn alone. Whenever I wear this primer with a color over it, I have a tough time with application as well as staying power. Bare Escentuals is coming out with a new line of shadow primers, and I’ll be interested to try those out. For now, though, I’m happy to stick with BE’s original primer.

About Essy
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!
