Queen Tiffany picked a Golden Iris

This is the second time I wore the beautiful amber color, Golden Iris, and it seems to get better with age. I was really on the fence about this color at first, but it has grown on me. Even though I was in a hurry the morning that I applied this (as you can tell by the sloppy lipstick!), I felt put-together all day. Sometimes when I wear a color on my face that I’m not sure I like, I am aware of it all day long, wondering if people are whispering about me behind their hands about my weird eyeshadow. Ok, I’m not THAT paranoid. But I was happy with this combo, regardless of the whispers. 🙂

On the eyes:

  • Bare Escentuals Brightening eye primer
  • Ready Golden Iris from lash to crease
  • Queen Tiffany in crease and outer corner
  • tarte emphasEYES brown gel liner along top lashline
  • Turn On under brown and in inner corner
  • tarte Gifted mascara and LORAC 3d mascara


On the lips:

  • NYX Eros lipstick (forgive me, I was in a hurry!)

On the face:

  • Mally Perfect Prep primer
  • 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!

    Such a pretty eyeshadow combo! If you keep this up, I might have to cave and buy that collection! I promise I did not snicker about the lipstick application… 😉 Nice to know that I’m not the only one wondering if others are laughing about my bright pink lips (ala BE PA charisma) or bright blue eyeshadow (BE I wish collection) (not on the same day)!
