EoTD: And I catch your soul…

Today I was using up the near-empty jars in my “on deck” area (jars of color that I have repotted, but don't want to throw out the original manufacturers' jars without using every last bit of color) and this turned out a bit better than I expected. It's a softer look, but darken the crease color and use a deeper and lip color and it could easily be amped up. I was going for a quasi-angelic/innocent look, but something right on the verge of being a bit more worldly than heaven would really be pleased with.

Lips

  • Bare Escentuals' Tempest full-color buxom lip polish

I chose Tranquil to provide a cooler, deeper spot of color right on the apples of the cheeks, then blended Theme Park over that color and brushed back toward my ears - to tone down the Tranquil, but also to provide a bit of sparkle.

Soft Ochre provides a neutral base color for the eye look, but also brightens the colors a bit. Princess almost looks like a cool taupe against the Soft Ochre, but the cooler Princess doesn't clash with the warmer Beautiful Melodie (in the crease). The bright blue of Blue Dream as the liner works better than I thought it would - though perhaps a bright navy or an electric royal blue-indigo might work better.

Las Vegas buxom lip stick provides a sweet and bright base color for the lips, while Tempest warms it up just slightly...but not too much.
