I did an unusual look for me today. If I had to do it over again, I’d probably have chosen a different lippy, one that was more pigmented and pink. I used a 50/50 mix of Joppa’s Morning Dew foundation in Citrine & Goldenrod. I think Goldenrod is a bit too dark for my taste, and Citrine is a bit too yellow, though it does a good job of cancelling out my pink overtone. I used Laura Geller’s In Spumoni & Sinful Praline eye shadow duo. It was definitely a neutral eye look. Stila’s Illuminating finishing powder in Rose Gold was used as blush. I followed that up with UD’s XXX Shine gloss in Heatherette. I think the gloss shade made me look washed out, which is why I think I needed a more pigmented lip.


This was taken in direct sunlight, no shade. The foundation was applied  on my neck and chest in addition to my face.

This was in the shaded section of the lanai.
