I think I need to go visit Maui again, because I know I miss it. Today’s look was inspired by a Maui sunset over the water. You see the golden sun painting the sky red-coral, and the mountains turn a dusky purple, while the water is all shades of blue.
Crystal Avalanche – white with reflects (veluxe pearl)
Sushi Flower – Pinky-coral with pink shimmer (satin)
Plumage – dusky peacock (matte)
Rapunzel Had Extensions – stunning golden pink-peach
Faerie Glamour – medium violet with shimmer that changes from lavender to pale blue to aqua
Futuristic Glam Rock – A gorgeous bright sky blue with strong green sheen. Closer to light, the green sheen becomes violet, giving it a strong lavender highlight. Metallic & sparkly.
Digital Faerie – stunning sky blue with green shimmer
Curiouser & Curiouser – The sparkly, bouncier cousin of Digital Faerie, this blue-aqua shade is filled with blue and turquoise sparkles and shimmer.
Late for Work – Vivid deep cornflower blue luster with sparkles of blue and green.
Hot Stuff – vivid coral-red frost with violet sparks
In the Buff – matte ivory

I evidently had way too much blush on, though I couldn’t tell it when I was applying it >.< Anyway, while I’m not really happy with my cheeks, I really love the way the eyes look.

This is gorgeous.
First of all, I ADORE this look, it’s in the top three of my favorites you’ve ever done. I am going to try to recreate something similar once my AL order gets here. <3!!
And second, I think you got the descriptions mixed up somewhere, cause I have Digital Faerie, and it is emphatically NOT "deep dark purple with turquoise shimmer".
I had grabbed the wrong description from my spreadsheet. It’s ‘stunning sky blue with green shimmer’. Fixed. Thanks for letting me know
And thank you! Glad you like it! really like how it turned out.
So pretty. Especially the “water”. And I like you with a little extra blush. Very nice look!
Aw thanks! I really need to practice blush, it’s definitely a weak point in my makeup skills.
You always seem to do a good job IMO. I’m usually in the too much or too little area myself. Just can’t get it quite right.
OMG This entire look is so awesome! The earrings and shadow compliment each other so well. Your brows do look perfect. Good job! Everything is perfect.
Thank you so much! I did a different technique with the brows and used a VERY thin angled brush on them.
I really love the look, especially with the gilded touch of Rapunzel Had Extensions and the different shades of blue in the lower lash line. I hope you and yours will be able to go on vacation this summer :]
I take a day off here and there, but I won’t be back to Maui for a while.
How gorgeous! You remind me of a tequila sunrise!
I personally think your blush looks good, but if you’d like to try a different approach try doing it a bit higher and make your starting point the same as the middle of your eye and use a circular motion this is how I do mine and it looks more like a natural flush.
I will give that a try!
this is so pretty, especially when you see it pulled back into the complete look. I’ve been obsessed with sunset looks this summer- the Sleek Sunset and Acid palettes are my favorites-of-late when creating the look- no fun looks like Fyrinnae’s though…I laugh everytime I see “Rapunzel Had Extensions”
Oooh I know the Acid palette is supposed to be fabulous! Would love to see a sunset look on you
fun names like Fyrinnae’s, is what I meant. Maybe bedtime
Beautiful! And I love your flash of turquoise
This is gorgeous! One of my fave looks from you. The color combination is beautiul and your earrings and outfit complimet the look very well.
Thank you I just love the images it conjures in my mind.
This is a very beautiful look! I wish I could say I enjoyed Hawaii as much as you. Circumstances were different though (Medivaced from Okinawa w/ a friend, to take care of her child. Me and the woman don’t get along too well lol). Also, I was on Oahu, in Waikiki and Honolulu.
The only nice people were foreigners.
Ack! Sorry that your experience wasn’t so good Mine is very narrow, only on Maui, and usually only with family, so very positive.
Absolutely gorgeous! I have sucked at making the rounds to blogs lately and I really missed seeing your beautiful face and amazing looks!
Aww thank you! Glad to see you popping in
I’m echoing everyone else and saying this is one of my favorite looks that you’ve done. Just beautiful.
Thank you! I really had fun putting this together.

I didn’t really notice your cheeks. You look like you’ve been out in the sun rather than whoring it up with the blush. If I have too much blush on, I blend it down and apply a little more foundation on top…that is if I catch it in time before going out or taking pics.
Your eye makeup is so fun and colourful. Perfect look for the beach! I lurve it!
Haha! I think it’s because the blush I used is a coral/natural flush type color.
Thank you! *hug*
Makes me want to crack open the sunscreen. Love how all the colours blened together and I love the blue along the bottom. fantastic as always
This look is stunning…it really resembles a sunset! I love the lip colour you chose as well.
I barely even noticed the blush…I was too busy staring at the eyes!
I love these colors on you. You and Diavolobello can wear any blue/teal/sapphire/lapis lazuli combination with anything. Your new hair color really makes your eyes stand out.
I’ve never been to Hawaii. Your eye makeup would really look perfect there. Really mimics the sunset look. Very pretty.
Thank you so much! I love it!
