I did two very odd looks today, trying new things. The colors are nice, I just think that they probably didn’t match up well.Look #1Shade Descriptions:Paper Heart – metallic khaki green with tons of sparkleJean Queen – blue/red/purple shimmerCabana – MAC Paradisco clone, golden peach shimmer
This one I only did pictures of the eyes.
Eyes:Urban Decay Primer Potion in EdenHigh Voltage Paper Heart – inner v, inner lower lash lineSilk Naturals Cabana – lidFyrinnae Pixie Epoxy – outer v, crease, lower lash lineSilk Naturals Jean Queen – outer v, crease, lower lash lineSilk Naturals Sonic – on browbone to highlightNyx Doll Eye Mascara
Face:Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inqusitive Siamese
You can see the duochrome shimmer very strongly in Jean Queen. I also think that Cabana and Paper Heart are lovely, but perhaps not together.
Shade Descriptions:Georgiana – muted mid-tone warm gold with the slightest grey undertone and a fine iridescent pink/red shimmer with brilliant red sparkles and burgundy shimmer throughoutCaitlin’s Purple Poof – a plush frosted warm purple, slightly heathered, with purplish-blue interference highlights, and bright sparkles of gold and green.

Lips:Nyx Lipliner in NaturalRevlon Matte lipstick in Nude Attitude
The Natural lipliner looked much better than I thought it would on! I lined my liips and lightly filled them in, then used Nude Attitude.
I tried a different setting here and ended up looking sort of red.
I realized I don’t tend to look images where my right side is forward. No idea why. I prefer left side forward, and I rarely do straight on.
Now, I’m not sure how I feel about these colors on me. All of these colors seem so soft and muted. I guess I feel like there’s not enough contrast. But I like all of these colors individually.
Anyway, here’s a cute picture of Dave playing with Phaedra.

Oh I love the natural liner with Nude Attitute! I'm always in the market for a new nude lippie….I'll have to check it out!
I like both looks on you. They are a lot softer than what you normally show us but still gorgeous!
Hmm..I'm liking them both:)
I love the lipstick on you, but I'm also on the fence about the lighter look. I tend to love your bold, bright looks the most.
And Phadra looks so small compared to Dave! How tall is he?
The looks may be muted, but they give your eyes a glow-ey effect.
Hi Jessica,Thanks, I think maybe I'm just not used to soft like this.
Hi Therese,Thank you
Hi Lindsey,He's 6'1, and I'm 5'4. Phaedra's tall compared to me.
Thanks for the vote of confidence on the lipstick
Hi Jezi,Thank you!
I like the looks, too. I was thinking that they might seem "odd" to you is that they are softer and more pastel than most of your looks. But you are so pretty, you can pull off bright and pastel with ease.
I like the second one and I think if you wore your hair up with it the colors would pop a bit more.Love the Phaedra picture! Phaedra says no peecshur belly rubz!
I like the 2nd one the most. The nude lipstick is wonderful on you. Phaedra looks like she's in happy land.
Hi Melissa,Aww thank you so much!
Hi EA,Should I pull it all back or just the top half?And hehehe she LOVES the belly rub.
Hi Blix,Thank you! Would you call that sort of nude shade like a nude beige-peach? Phaedra was totally in happy land. Believe it or not, she loves to be picked up and carried around and cuddled, even though she's a 'big dog'.
Love the nude lip on you.
I love that nude lipstick! You're braver than me, lol. I had a weirdly contrasting look yesterday too, so I ended up not blogging it. I put it on MUA though. Your looks are pretty though.
woweee! I love bright colours more than anything but your second look is fantastic! I only own 1 nude nyx gloss that hardly gets any love but this makes me rethink it
I really love the lid colour in the second photo
Ever since I saw your Revlon matte lipstick swatches I've felt compelled to swatch Nude Attitude everytime I see it. Maybe one day I'll actually get around to picking it up XD
I like these, especially the first eyeshadow look you look very pretty with nude lipstick, however, my favorite on you is the fuschia !
I really like both of these, the first one beng my favorite. While I LOVE your bolder looks, the softer neutral looks are just as gorgeous.
Hi Amanda,Hehe thanks
Hi Dominque,I figure the worst people will do is laugh, so might as well make them smile. Thanks
Hi Axs,Aww thanks!
Hi Silhouette,Wow thanks! It actually looked really well with that lipliner.
Hi MissTat,Me too! I adore Fuschia!
Hi Easy Peasy,Aww thank you! The first one is sort of tropical to me.
Hi Phyrra! Do you think you can do a swatch of both Nude Attitude and SN's XXX? Are they similar?
Nude Attitude looks great on you!
Hi LT,Glad you like Nude Attitude
That nude looks great! It's not too pale and it's got just the ride peachy/flesh shade to look great! Lovely!
P.S. I appreciate the colour creativity- I think it looks splendid and you have the most striking face- gorgeous girl!
Hi TiannaMarie,Aww thanks! It's definitely worth snagging Thank you so much for the compliments!
