Today\’s a new Monday Shadow Challenge
– I\’m loving how creative I can get with colors and shapes when I\’m forced to use two colors that may or may not be matching in the first place ! Today\’s colors are fuchsia and coral and I had a lot of ideas for this one.
I\’m loving fuchsia and I\’m loving coral at the moment and it\’s when I love the colors that it gets hard to create. Always. Even when I\’m reviewing a product – if I\’m loving it to the bottom of my heart well then the pictures are going to be a pain in the butt to take. That\’s how it is.
I wanted to play a bit with a cut crease for this and some products had to be featured in this look. I absolutely wanted to include my new L.A. Girl Just Blushin\’ blushers
that I have ten or twelve of and love because they\’re so super pigmented and longlasting and easy to blend – actually, I have used them on my eyes a bit so you can see how pigmented that gets. I\’ve also used two different blushes on my cheeks, one peachy and one pink – actually, I\’ll try and review those Just Blushin\’ babes asap because they are a really, really good product that needs to be made aware of. I\’m loving how summery the mix of orange and pink on my cheeks looks !
I wanted to play with my Rose Gold blush from Sleek that I rarely use even though I love the color and the pinched cheek look it gives and it\’s actually the color I\’ve applied on the cut crease. I still have to figure out how to make it pop more but this rose gold, man… !
And the last product I needed to feature in this Sunset Blvd look… My favorite lipstick from M.A.C., a.k.a. the liquid matte lipstick in the shade Tailored to Tease
. Used it both as an eyeliner and a lipstick and I loved how it made my eyes pop. It was very funny to use one of M.A.C.\’s liquid lipsticks as an eyeliner as I see my colleagues doing it all the time, with the shade Oh, Lady for instance and it was my turn – loved the result.
I added some lipgloss on top of it on my lips because when I tried to photograph the look without lipgloss, it just looked bland, useless and meeeh. This definitely is a color that looks good on everyone – everytime I use it, I feel hot and like, my life actually has meaning and depth !
