bareMinerals: High Shine Gold Medal

I wore this look for a Christmas party. The gold eyeshadow really popped, and I may wear something similar for New Year’s Eve this year! The false lashes were longer than any that I’ve ever worn before, but I thought a Christmas party was as good a time as any to break them in! I originally had a darker red lip, but it was a bit too drag queenish with everything else, so I went with a lighter red paired with a glimmery gold gloss.

Avon Holiday quad: Sequins and Shine

 

Today, I used another Avon quad that I received as a gift from my dear friend. This is one of those gifts that I probably never would have looked twice at, because the quad screams blue to me, and I have a tough time with blues. But… it happens to be fantastic.  These colors are phenomenally  beautiful, especially the dramatic grey color, which I used on the lid. The three darker colors have good pigment and blend fairly well, but the light color (Iced Silver) was not very pigmented and I really had to keep going back for more and more product on my brush in order to get any color at all to show up.

Another new product that I used today is a Missha blush. This is the first time that I’ve used a product from Missha that wasn’t a bb cream, so I was excited to try it out. The blush is called “Coral Pink” but the most I could get out of it was a baby doll pink. It’s VERY subtle and gives just a hint of a flush to the cheeks. I don’t have any blush quite so light, so I’m excited to use it with a smokey eye, and it’ll be especially pretty in the spring and summer.
