red to coral (and a little glitter)

I’ve been eagerly wanting to pick up some Essie nail polishes lately, and just so happened to do that late last night. I wanted colours that didn’t look to similar to my OPI colours… I tend to buy to many OPI polishes, and have approximately every shade. The Essie nail polishes that I picked up were       “Fifth Avenue“, “Cute as a Button” & “A Cut Above“.

a day look

During my adventures around my home town with a friend of mine, haley, and I went to the high points of the mountains to take pictures of one our towns beautiful lake. Wanting to keep my makeup natural looking, this is what I came up with.

MAC 217 Blending Brush, MAC 213 Fluff Brush, Annabelle A-14 Eyeliner Brush, MAC Paint Pot “Painterly”, Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Eyeliner “blackest black”, MAC Eyeshadow “Motif”, MAC Eyeshadow “Woodwinked”, Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion “Very Black”, Covergirl Natureluxe Liquid Silk Foundation “320 – aspen”

This combination was completely experimental, I didn’t know if I would like it, but it just so happened I did. I have Motif on the lid, and Woodwinked in the crease. I love the look of duochrome eyeshadows, it’s a different twist to your look, and can completely change the eyeshadow combination with different lighting!

What are some good duochrome colours?

I’m always looking for new ones to add to my eyeshadow collection
