I Wish collection, #3

This is the final of three looks using the Bare Escentuals I Wish collection, and today the focus color is Lucky Penny. I had fun with this look! Lucky Penny is such a strange, interesting color that seems to change with the light – sometimes more brown, sometimes it’s more purple. I’m looking forward to trying it with other colors outside of this collection.

This is a bit dramatic, of course, for my one venture outside the house today at the library, but I think it’s a great look for going out to dinner or drinks.

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!

    I swear….I look at the 3 colors in this kit & they don’t look like they’d work together at all but you put together 3 different looks and they are all great! I love, love that you do this! I’ve put together colors I never ever would have and they’ve turned out so pretty. I swear you make me want to buy every eyeshadow they make lol!
