Guest Blogging on Makeup and Beauty Blog!

One of my favorite beauty websites is Makeup and Beauty Blog. The blog author, Karen (a very cool chick), is currently vacationing in Hawaii (jealous!) so she graciously allowed me to do a guest post on her blog while she soaks up the sun.

Another Youtube inspired look...

So I decided to try a new look that I caught in a Youtube makeup tutorial since I had most of the colors used. Here's the tutorial:

And here's my take on it. Mine is a little more toned down since I was just looking for a more daytime wearable look. For example, I normally don't wear any shadow or liner on my lower lashline during the day (mostly because I'm lazy - haha).

I really like this look! Normally, I wear shimmery/frosty eye shadows on my lid and this look is mostly matte. It's subtle but pretty. I also really like using Texture (described as peachy-brown with light shimmer) as a crease color because it gives it a really natural look. Overall, all the colors are relatively neutral so I think this would work well as an every day look.

Here's everything I used...

bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation in Medium Beige
MAC Stark Naked Blush (instead of Gentle)

MAC Yogurt e/s (instead of Rose Blanc)
MAC Shale e/s
MAC Texture e/s
MAC Sketch e/s
Bobbi Brown Black Ink Gel eyeliner
MAC Carbon e/s (on top of eyeliner)
MAC Cork e/s (brows)
Maybelline Full & Soft mascara

NYX Thalia lipstick
MAC Love Nectar Lustreglass
