Bare Escentuals Beautiful Melodie, Luminous Topaz, Cherry Coco Truffle

I was going for a nice fall-inspired look today, and decided to open up Beautiful Melodie, which came from the Women of BE collection. The color looked so scary (and how often am I afraid of a color?) in the unopened pot, so I just avoided it during my Women of BE series. Well, it turns out that I was wrong. Beautiful Melodie is beautiful indeed! It’s shimmery without being glittery, and this gorgeous coppery orange. Alone, it might be a little much, but toned down like I did today, with a creamy color and a darker warm brown, I really love it!

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!
