Gold and plummy pink


Two posts in a row!!!  Yippee!!
I started this look knowing that I wanted to use Milani's Summer Sands on the lid.  I have decided to delve into some of the shadows I love but have been neglecting for a very long time and Summer Sands definitely falls into this category.  It is one of their single shadows, from the Runway collection, that is super glittery.  I would describe it as a beige gold, with tons and tons of gold glitter.  I find the best way to use any of these shadows is to use a damp brush to really get the glitter payoff.  It is beautiful.  After applying the lid color, I just started reaching for color after color after color.... I used many shadows today.

MAC Prep and Prime to prime skin
MAC Face and Body- C2
MAC Studio Fix Powder- C2 dusted on very lightly with fluffy powder brush
NYX Taupe blush-  contour
NYX Peach blush- cheeks
Maybelline Pink Please Lippie
NYX LaLa gloss over top of lippie

Milani Summer Sands applied with damp flat shader brush to lids, blended out at crease (glittery beige gold)
MAC Sunset B  applied with fluffy crease brush to outer edges and blended all the way into crease (satin finish dirty yellow pink)
MAC Passionate applied with denser crease brush to outer edges of lid and into crease (matte hot pink)
MAC Fig 1 with dense crease brush to outer edges of lids (matte midtone warm plummy purple)
Wet N Wild Lust Palette-  Darkest matte purple to deepen outer edges of lid and along lower lashes, light off white with sparkles as highlight

Lastly, this terrible shot that I had to include due to my cat's head poking out in the background :)
