Tangerines in August

A layer of Maybelline’s Color Tattoo eyeshadow in Fierce & Tangy really made the gold color pop, without any of the tangerine color coming through. I have 3 of these products now, and look forward to getting some more – they really make a great base, comparable to Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream pots but at a fraction of the cost. For some reason, the first couple of times that I used them, the shadows faded and creased badly, but now that I use a brush instead of my fingers, they stay put all day.

On the eyes:

  • bareMinerals Brightening Sunlight eye primer
  • Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadow in Fierce & Tangy on lid from lash to crease
  • bareMinerals Black Ruby in crease and under lower lashes
  • bareMinerals August on lid
  • tarte emphasEYES gel liner in Brown
  • bareMinerals Flawless Definition Volumizing mascara

On the lips:

  • bareMinerals lipstick in Sticky Buns
  • bareMinerals Pretty Amazing lipgloss in Sass

On the face:

  • boscia BB cream
  • Smashbox Halo Perfecting Powder in Fair
  • Laura Geller Blush n Brighten in Sateen Subtle Berry
  • Sleek MakeUp Face Contour kit


About Essy
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!
