Orchids are my favorite flowers. I’m starting an Orchid Series and to kick off the series I’m beginning with Coral Orchids. From what I can tell they’re called Vanda Orchids. Orchids have such diversity! That’s why I thought they’d make a great series.
A note, I did use MAC eyeshadows today. All of my MAC products were purchased BEFORE MAC started testing on animals. As I was a MAC lover from 1999 to 2012, I own a lot of MAC. I don’t use it very often at this point because I’m disappointed in MAC, but I did choose to use some of it for today’s look. I also used Too Faced and Sugarpill, both of whom are proudly cruelty-free.
This was taken with flash to show how Fyrinnae Cupcake Frosting adds a pink glow.
Also, my lips look awesome for this look. I love the Too Faced sparkler gloss with the la creme lipsticks!
I stipped the Jane Iredale BB Cream on my t-zone with the Urban Decay Optical Illusion brush and under the eyes, then blended it outwards. That’s all I have on my face today. I really love how great my skin looks. I swear this brush really does give a flawless appearance.

Wow, your skin looks INCREDIBLE! This is a cute look, I like the colors and the overall “glow”
Makeupfancy Thank you!
I fully blame you that I spend more time doing make up now than painting nails ;P Another beautiful eye!
ShelliZink What can I say, eyeshadow can be addictive
Beautiful! I love this look.
SpiceDropBlog Thank you
This is pure perfection. Your skin, lips, eyes… everything just came together so well!
Jessi M Thanks Jessi! I was so happy with it, too.
Jane Iredale does have wonderful products, doesn’t she? Have you ever tried her PurePressed Base?
NoorInNJ I have not! This is my first product by her.
sounds like a great concept for a series!
memorymachine Thanks Judi
I’m so glad you did another tutorial. I keep meaning to tell you how much I LOVE them, but I don’t wanna say it on a post it’s not relevant to. I don’t like videos (for several reasons); I prefer to read reviews and tutorials. And tutorials need pictures! But you go the extra mile and number everything, put it together in a set and list steps with corresponding numbers. PERFECT! I love your tut system so much I look forward to every one! Even if I don’t love the look, I still love the tut and I learn something every time. So, all that to say … thank you for these. They’re just what I need.
RiffRaffRanch Thank you so much for the feedback! I’m happy to hear that they are helpful.
RiffRaffRanch I actually prefer written reviews and tutorials as well.
beautiful eyes, and I like this bb cream on you.
cinseven13 Thanks Cin!
This is just so gorgeous…..WOW
WendiThroatPunchGirven Thanks Wendi!
very tropical! i like it
stepfordwitch Thank you
Beautiful! I am really looking forward to seeing the rest of the series!Agreed about your lips; LOVE the colors!I kind of feel like I need to buy every eyeshadow Sugarpill makes, haha. I only have their Heartbreaker palette. I also agree with RiffRaffRanch that I like your tutorial system a lot and really look forward to them. I usually don’t do much with my crease, but I am learning more! I did your Hum Plum look today, actually, and I feel like it wasn’t my best work and the colors I used turned out duller than I wanted, but when I looked at it overall, it still looked pretty cool because it was different than my norm. I know what I want to do next time I try it. So, thanks for all of your hard work with the tutorials!
misfitgirlie I vote yes on Sugarpill. And I’m so happy that you like my tutorials! Yay
I grow orchids… actually, a lot of them come in coral… cattleyas, phalaenopsis, and vandas, among others. Vanilla comes from an orchid…Orchids are really quite fascinating, and addictive, too… kind of like make-up…lol.
tikibwana I love their variety! I also love Vanilla
This is going to be an amazing series! I love the pink outer/yellow inner – love these colours together. And agree with the two gals below – your photo tutorials are SOOOO good – I’ve learned so much from you, thank you!!!
What an amazing look, the colors are so vivid and beautiful!
I definitely wish I was as brave as you to wear a look like this. Looks sooo good on you, but I can’t myself wear a lot of makeup without looking funny!
I love your blush and highlighting here. Looks amazing! These eye colors are some of my favorites too.
Hi there. This look is gorgeous. I am still reeling over the fact that my blog was hacked after three years of long hard work and so many followers. It is heart wrenching, but I picked back up where I left off with a new domain. It was a mess…I think my husband thought my tears were ridiculous, but the work that goes into the videos and blogging is well, insane:) However, I love it. I would love to know how you do the pictures all together. I get so many requests for tutorials, but sometimes I think blogging the tutorials would be great unless it is something I have to show “in person”…if you read this, I would love to have any advice. Or if anyone else reads it…my email is [email protected] Thanks so much!
I love coral! I don’t think I see enough of it around. Lovely.
