Yummy coral and deep purple

Hello all!!

Here was my Birthday FOTD, some corals and purple inspired by a YouTube tutorial posted by SunniShinee.  I've been totally loving corals lately, so when I saw the tut I knew I had to try it.  I instantly thought of Aromaleigh's Rhinestone Housewife (which i regrettably never grabbed in F/S) and Zinnia... these 2 shadows are gorgeous together.  I really love the way this turned out IRL, the pics came out a little funky due to my assy camera.  One of these days I'll get a good camera :)

I used:

UDPP to prime lid
MAC Fig. 1 applied with small crease brush to outer v and dragged onto lid, then blended out with a 217 brush (matte deep warmer toned purple)
Aromaleigh Rhinestone Housewife patted onto outer 2/3 of lid with small shader brush, blending into the fig.1 (softly frosted vivid orange-fuchsia with a magenta highlight and some sparks of pink)
Aromaleigh Zinnia patted onto inner 1/3 of lid with same shader brush, then patted lightly on top of the rhinestone housewife (So unique, this vibrant but soft coral peach turns into a blend of pinkish coral with a dominant violet iridescence.)
NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk dotted lightly onto tear duct area and then blended out
Some random soft white with slight shimmer patted over top of the milk pencil and blended slightly onto lid, also as highlight, it's a sample from somewhere but somehow got into an unmarked jar
NYX Black Applied with small crease brush to deepen outer V, then blended with a bit of the Fig. 1.  Also to line lower lashline (matte black)
Milani Eyetech  black liquid liner on upper lashline

Cheeks are NYX Peach and MAC MSF in Light Flush
Lips are Rimmel lipliner in Clover with a bit of MAC Cutester on top

Excuse the funky tail on my liner that didn't get filled in completel... and the smudge on the inner corner, I didn't use my usual cake liner in this look.

Thanks for looking darlins'!


  1. This is a WOW look...Perfect colors for your eyes. You are the master blender. Always perfect!!!

  2. So pretty! I love it, like always! :-)

  3. Thanks Krista, thanks LGG!! You should check out her tutorial, its really good. The colors she used are all really dupeable as I'm pretty certain that the coral she used was TKB's strawberry pop.
