What I'm Wearing: Pop of Blue

Lately I've been favoring shiny, balm-like lip products because a certain lipstick from NARS (more on that in a future post) totally destroyed my lips. Anyway, here's a makeup look I created a few days ago with the Kat Von D Star-Crossed True Romance Palette. I don't recall where I wore this to because, as I mentioned in my Blogging Tips post, I photograph in bulk and then write a post's corresponding text (usually a week later). I do know it was during the daytime so here's a non-intimidating way to add some blue eyeshadow into your everyday makeup…

BASE: For a really light, everyday coverage I used my Pond's Luminous BB+ in Light*. To conceal blemishes I applied a little bit of the Revlon PhotoReady Concealer in Light/Med. I set all of that with a dusting of the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Transparent. 

CHEEKS: I used a few layers of the recently reviewed Love Blush from the NARS Final Cut Collection.

EYES: The Milani ShadowEyez Eyeshadow Pencil in Champagne Toast acted as a shimmery base. Then I did some eyeshadow work using the Kat Von D Star-Crossed Palette. It's been now discontinued, sadly. The colors I used were Ville (a shimmery taupe) all over the lid and Hyperballad (a cool toned blue) on the bottom lash line. Then I just did a bit of mascara (using the Jordana Best Lash Extreme) and winged liner. I filled in my brows with the Face It Designing Brow Cake in Khaki.

LIPS: I took two balm-y lip options on my bag with me. One was the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle. The other was the Korres Lip Butter Glaze in Pomegranate.

  7. I love that Pink Truffle Revlon Lip Butter! I'm really fair and cool-toned so I thought it would be too dark and warm on me, but it actually makes for a really nice low-key lip, especially for fall or with brown eyeshadow looks!

    1. Pink Truffle is one of the most underrated Lip Butters, I think.

  8. Your eyeliner looks absolutely PERFECT Coco!! And of course you look lovely overall, as always. I'm curious to hear about the NARS lipstick that destroyed your lips… I'm shocked to hear that happened with a product from them!

  17. Why is your makeup always so flawless Coco? Not fair on the rest of us! Lovely way to add colour into daily makeup, unfortunately my eyes are too green for blue shadow but I often do this with purple or dark green

    1. I think blue eyes could pull off blue eyeshadow if it were like a navy tone.

  20. Putting a color on the bottom lash line is one of my favorite ways to add a pop of color to a neutral look! More often than not I use my Vice 2 palette as it has so many bright colors. On another note, I've been loving your blog and posts so so much lately!

  30. The nars blush is so pretty! But, after reading your review for it I can't help but feel it would be a waste of money for me, as I'm like a C5/6 in mac's f&b and it's not that pigmented :(
