Dirty Little Secret

Today’s look was done with a satiny coral lid shade from Sobe Botanicals. I then used Dirty Little Secret, a light silver grey with red reflecting shimmer and glitter widely in the crease. I used just a touch of Too Faced Sexpresso to deepen the crease. Dirty Little Secret is pretty awesome, and if you like greys at all, you should give it a try.

 

 

Eyes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Sobe Botanicals Coral – lid
Sobe Botanicals Dirty Little Secret – crease and outer v
Too Faced Sexpresso – to deepen lower crease and outer v
Nyx Opal – inner corners of eye and on browbone to highlight
MAC Blacktrack – upper lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Stray Dog – lower lash line
Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Midnight Cowboy – lower water line
Avon Glimmersticks Brow Pencil in Soft Black
Nyx Grow Lash Mascara

Face:
Fyrinnae Velvet-Gel Silica Face Primer
Eve Pearl Concealer in Light Salmon – under eyes

Cheeks:
MAC Bite of an Apple – to contour a bit
Joppa Minerals Pink Lemonade – blush

Lips:

MAC Lipstick in Toxic Tale

I used the green color correcting powder on my cheeks and I think it did really well to hide my red/pink overtone. I tried the Light Salmon concealer under my eyes and it worked ok, though I’m not sold on the texture. I felt like it settled into the fine lines under my eyes.

      Hmm… I’m a bit more intrigued by that coral. So pretty!

      Toxic Tale is such a great color on you!

        Thanks Reggie! I like corals and oranges for spring :)

          Me too! I need to bust out some corals, but it’s so cold in New England that it still feels like winter!

      that coral is absolutely gorgeous

      That is a really gorgeous look. I never would have put coral and silver together, but it looks amazing.

      • Phyrra

        I liked how the silver looked like a dirty grey silver, and it REALLY worked well as a crease color on me. I bet it would work well as an all over shade, too.

      I think I have a sample of the coral which I haven’t tried yet. Guess I need to!
      I love how the eyeshadow & lipstick compliment each other – very pretty.

      • Phyrra

        Thanks! I thought this would be a nice coral look :)

      The color corrector looks like it did the trick.. does it last? Also you made me jealous over the toxic tale lipstick.. boo I really wish I had it.

      • Phyrra

        It lasted all day with primer and the foundation. I’d never tried using color corrector before, and you can tell in some of my other photos that I get weirdly splotchy on my cheeks.

        Toxic Tale was a very generous gift from a friend and I really adore it. I was sad when I couldn’t pick it up originally because it sold out.

      This is a great look! I have not done coral with a gray, I may be trying that tomorrow.

      I love my Salmon Concealer, and I found that if I apply it with a brush and then pat with my finger or blend with a damp makeup sponge, that it does not highlight my fine lines.

      • Phyrra

        Maybe I applied it incorrectly then. I applied it the way i’ve been using other concealers:

        1. primed the area with Fyrinnae Velvet-Gel Silica Face primer
        2. using my ring finger to pat left and right in a half moon shape under the eye.
        3. blended with a blending brush, very gently, in a half moon shape
        4. applied ultra resolution finishing powder in peaches and cream with a blending brush, very gently

        • http://www.movinginwithdementia.com Katie

          That sounds like it should work well. I did notice that I need to use less of the salmon concealer than I have of my other concealer. My old concealer for two years was Benefit Erase Paste. It is always interesting how one product works for someone but not for another.

      Lovely! I never would have thought of mixing coral with grey but it really works! I wish I’d got Toxic Tale, it’s a lovely colour.

      I think this might be my favorite eye look of yours to date. It’s so subtle, yet so eye-catching and beautiful. I can’t believe I’ve never thought to pair peach/salmon with gray before on my eyes. You constantly inspire me, woman. xo

      Awesome look! I also love the name Dirty Little Secret, it reminds me of Leather Strip.
