Chocolat crème eyes

I tried an unexpected look today. I used Dreamworld Minerals Chocolat crème for my lid color, because it’s such a pretty color and texture. I’m not sure that I like the crease color I paired with it, but I don’t think it looks bad. Dave liked the Chocolat color as well.

The silk crèmes definitely seem to have what I would consider a satiny finish. It’s not overly shiny, and it’s nice and light. I still don’t think I’ve found a match with this color of foundation, but I’ll be trying Corra next.

Shade Description:
Red Dragon – a red with undertones of copper
Peach crème – a soft peach
Chocolat crème – a chocolate
Ostara – neutral with peach undertones

Eyes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Dream World Crème Silk in Chocolat crème – on eyelid
Dream World Clarent – crease
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cottage Cheese – to highlight
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Lucky – outer upper lash line and lower lash line
Bare Escentuals Magic Wand Brushless Mascara in black

Cheeks:
Dream World Red Dragon blush

Face:
Dream World Cloud foundation in Ostara
Dream World Crème Silk in Peach crème

Lips:
MAC Lipstick in Sweet Thing
Too Faced Sparkler Glamour Gloss in Sapphire Spark

I figured with neutral eyes, I t would be nice if I had bright lips. That, and I wanted to wear MAC Sweet Thing again. I LOVE that color.

Hair:
Silver EZ Comb
I pulled my hair into a peacock twist today and used the butterfly technique with the EZ Comb.
To do a peacock twist, I brush my hair back like I would for a pony tail, and then close to my scalp, I twist the hair a few times and guide it upwards. I then take the EZ Combs and put one side on, twist the strands twice, and put the other side on. I leave the ends of my hair free, to be the ‘tail.’ I particularly love doing this with my hair color placement.

Toes:
1 coat of China Glaze Base Coat
2 coats of Color Club Ultra Violet
1 coat of China Glaze Fast Forward Top Coat

Tips:
1 coat of China Glaze Base Coat
2 coats of Zoya Katy on all fingers except ring fingers

      WOW! lucky looks amazing w/ your coloring! I think it definately pulled the look together :o) I actually really like the crease color! Maybe if the colors were switched it would look different?

      Sadly, I emailed Dreamworld 2 days ago and still no response :o( Totally a bad thing for me, I won’t be ordering from them again.

      I love the look, its absolutely perfect. I don't see why you're not sure if you like the other color, it's good. I've realized lately that a lot of colors look good on you!

      Your hair looks amazing there! I'm just waiting for my own to grow out so I can do that (since I have a tie like that too).

      Can't wait to read more from you! <3

      Hi Chrissy,
      I think I'd like it better with Aromaleigh's Shadow Witch in the crease, or maybe Fyrinnae's Curiouser & Curiouser.
      Thank you! I think my coloring lets me pull off a fair amount of colors, and thankfully I branched out and started trying them!

      Thank you for the compliments on my hair! I've been growing it out for a while now. This is the longest it's been in years!

      Actually, I like this look on you. I think it’s glam yet werable at the same time. What a nice little haul you have and the samples! Those SAs wouldn’t even give me a sample even when I bought something and asked for them. :( I’m all ears on your advice on how to get those little freebies. LOL Oh well, enjoy!

      When you order online, you can choose samples ;)
      I’ve never gotten samples in the store, only online (except once).

      Heh, do you think the lips make it glam?

      I adore this lippie on you! And the hair is so pretty :)

      Lisa; could it be that the email has been “lost” in cyberspace perhaps? Ellie is known for prompt communication, so this sounds very “unlike” her… I’d resend the email if I were you :)
