Today I tried to create a ‘work safe’ look. I used a lovely shade from Concrete Minerals called Lolita.
Prude – pale shimmery pink
Lolita – shimmery taupe with pink undertones
Twice Baked – brownie brown with gold glitter
Lust to Love – gilded mauve and antique rose
Reign – nude with subtle pink shimmer
Concrete Minerals Prude – from eyebrows down to crease and inner corners of eye
Concrete Minerals Lolita – from lashline up into crease and along lower lash line
Urban Decay Twice Baked – outer crease
Wet n’ Wild Black Gel liner – upper lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero – lower water line
MAC Plumage – to define brows
Hard Candy 1,000 Lashes Primer
Flirt! It Curls Mascara
Too Faced Blush Duo in Lust to Love
Meow Pampered Puss foundation in Inquisitive Siamese
Evil Shades lipstick in Reign

I love this so much! I tend to reach for browns and neutrals day to day so this is perfect!
Super pretty! I’ve oft considered buying Lolita. <3
It’s really pretty! You can really see the pink shimmer in it.
I love the look — and the shirt! I still have that shirt, but it’s much worse for wear after about a decade+ of washing and casual Fridays…
Aww thanks! I think I got it at hot topic a long time ago.
Now that is my kind of work safe look! Beautiful!
Aww thank you
I think this may be my favorite look I’ve seen from you in a while. I especially love the lips! Must get my hands on that!
Don’t you just love Concrete Minerals? I think I own almost all their shades, lol. Lovely Look!!
I do, they’ve got some lovely colors.
I really like these colors on you!!
1. You have blue hair. What is ‘work safe’??
2. This lip color is PERFECT with these eyes!!! …maybe it’s a whole-face thing, ’cause I’m keen on the blush here too!!
3. I love that you’re using products named ‘Prude’, ‘Lust to Love’ and ‘Lolita’ at the same time. Too cute!
Well, for me I can wear anything.
But I was trying for a ‘work safe’ look for people who can’t wear blue hair or bring their poodles to work.
Thank you! I was thinking the blush and lip would coordinate nicely with the taupe lid.
And yes, the names made me giggle, too!
Very nice! Btw love your shirt too lolz
Love the shirt! The makeup’s beautiful too.
Yay thanks Gio!
Awwh, this looks so pretty and polished with that lip colour
Thanks! I think Reign really tied it all together for me.
Very pretty look!
Love the shirt too
Thank you Morrigan!
Lovely! Really nice neutral look
Thanks Nea! I feel quite polished.
Ohh this is a lovely neutral look:) I *need* Lolita;)
Thanks Therese! I think so, too Lolita is lovely.
Gorgeous look , love the Lolita color. This is really neutral
I love that look and it really brings out your eyes!! The shirt is perfect with it because the look is all purr…but watch out…LOL! Great LOTD!
Thanks Amy! Hehe, yeah I love the shirt.
Hi I know this is off topic but I was wondering how you were finding the L’oreal Everpure shampoo/conditioner? I also picked some up for the blue in my hair and it does help with the fading, but the residue it leaves, ICK! Have you found it to leave a lot of residue in the scalp also? I have to use a clarifying shampoo anyways to get rid of the buildup so it kind of ruins the the antifading that the Everpure creates.
Hi Minou, I love the shampoo/conditioner. I only wash my hair about every 5 to 7 days, and I use Batiste dry shampoo in between. I feel like it helps the color stay in pretty well. I haven’t had any of it rub off on my skin like with other colors. I haven’t noticed a residue on my scalp.
I love your bright looks, but you are also great at neutrals! This one is no exception. And Reign is so pretty on you!
Thank you Kathy!
OMG! Love love love!!! But you probably knew that I would, right? I must have the e/s and the lippie for sure. Those are MY colors.
Yay I’m glad you love it! I thought you might I think both are so pretty! You would definitely rock it
gasp! this taupe-y grey is just stunning on you you look gorgeous.
Thanks Nina! I love the pretty pink sparkles in it Bet you’d rock it!
Taupes are an amazing alternative to the usual ‘neutrals’. This came out gorgeous!
I can’t believe I don’t have more of them to be honest. I think I lumped them into the ‘boring, neutral’ category without really giving them a chance. I have this taupe that I love, and Fyrinnae’s Damn Paladins that I love. Thanks Nepenthe!
The look is beautiful! It really makes your eyes pop. And I absolutely love your shirt! I’m so going to have to find one…and take a picture in it with my cat. Take care<3
Awesome! I bet you could find a seller on etsy to make it if you can’t find it elsewhere, Keira!
That is a gorgeous look for you!
Thank you K *hug*
You look very lovely in subdued colors. I like this on you!
Thank you! I really like the Lolita color!
