this look is definitely Spring inspired... usually, Spring is all about pastel colors but this year is all about the brave, bold, bright colors... 

so here is my interpretation of that whole scheme... my first Spring LOTD...

L'Oreal True Match foundation - W4
Sonia Kashuk concealer palette - Hidden Agenda
Maybelline Fit Me powder - #220
MAC blush - Blunt
MAC blush - Dollymix
MAC bronzing powder - Refined Golden
NARS blush - Albatross (highlight)
E.L.F. makeup mist & set
MAC paintpot - Painterly
NYX jumbo eye pencil - Milk
CoverGirl eye enhancers - Tropical Fusion
Wet n Wild ColorIcon palette - Vanity (used matte highlighter)
Wet n Wild idol eyes creme shadow pencil - Distress (base lower lash line)
Prestige liquid liner - Black
Stila kajal eye liner - Topaz
Wet n Wild brow kit - Ash Brown
Maybelline the colossal mascara - Classic Black
Smith's Rosebud Salve
YSL rouge volupte lipstick - Sensual Silk

then I thought I'd have fun, really go all out with this whole color blocking style that's been goin around this season... so I changed up the lip color into something more bold & bright... I tried,

Milani lipstick - Mandarina

it wasn't as bright as I expected it to be... the orange lipstick I'm looking for is more on the neony side.. this is a bit too dark for my taste.. it almost look red on the pictures.... but I guess it's more wearable this way than if it was too Orangey-bright....

hmmm... I'm itchin to get MAC's Morange lipstick, so bad!!!

do you own any orange lipstick?? what is your favorite one?

& now for the animated cam whorin... LOL

make a gif

btw, HAPPY 4/20 everyone! =P


  1. It is 4/20 today, isn't it! Haha! Love the look! Really like the color on the lower lashline! And I'm not sure if I have any orange lippies.... I'd really have to dig thru my stash and see. You look great rockin bright lips!

  2. I love your hair. I like your eyeshadow too, I wish I knew how to do my eyes like you ^_^

    That Milani orange lip colors looks good on you. No, I don't own any orange lipsticks, but I may reconsider after reading this post.

    Yayy! Happy 4.20!

  3. LOVE that milani lipstick on you! My favorite orange lipstick is definitely Good to Go! Bright neon and long lasting color! You should definitely check it out! Great look!

  4. OOOOh the colors are so bright but yet you made them look soft. I likey!

  5. Im loving the beachy waves and your orange lippy is much more wearable than the orange lippy I wore recently.

  6. How cool, I just did an FOTD using an orange lippie and it's pretty cool. I love this look, it's not over the top and you made it wearable :)

    By the way, to answer your question, I live in a condo and our hallway looks like a hotel lol.
