Sleek MakeUp Tan & Purple

I love the effect of neutral colors on the eyelid, with full lashes and a bright red lip. I felt super pretty all day when I wore this. It’s amazing how much some great lashes and a bold lip can make a whole face perk up.  One application tip I can offer to get this look is to skip traditional eyeliner – what I did here was “tightlining,” which means filling in between the lashes to create the illusion of thicker lashes. Here is a great tutorial that helped me to learn this technique (click here).

On the eyes:

  • Dove Gray primer shadow
  • Sleek MakeUp Oh So Special palette – The Mail all over, Wrapped Up in crease, Noir under lower lashes
  • BE Retro tightlined in both lashlines
  • tarte Gifted mascara


On the lips:

  • Pretty Amazing Strength

On the face:

  • Missha Cho Bo Yang bb cream in Light Beige
  • Laura Geller Balance N Brighten in Fair
  • tarte Tipsy blush
  • MUFE HD microfinishing powder

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!
