Earth Toned Makeup

Earth toned makeup? What does that even mean? Oh, well. It's the first thing that popped into my head when I was trying to name this look. I decided to take this makeup in a really warm toned "earthy" direction after applying the Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes in E127 as a base. It's one of the most gorgeous cream eyeshadows I own. If you like camel/mustard/corduroy tones then this is for you! I'm terrible at describing colors, but according to Wikipedia this would fall under the dark goldenrod category.

1. Pond's Luminous Finish BB+* 2. Face It Brow Designing Cake in Khaki Grey 3. MAC Orb Eyeshadow (browbone) 4. Coastal Scents Medieval Gold Eyeshadow (inner corner) 5. Makeup Geek Preppy Eyeshadow (lid) 6. Ellis Faas Creamy Eyes in 127 (eyeshadow base) 7. MAC Kohl Liner in Teddy (waterline) 8. BECCA Ultimate Colour Gloss in Fallen Angel (lips) 9. NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Walkyrie (lips) 10. Neutrogena Healthy Skin Primer* (base) 11. Mary Kay CC Cream in Light-Med*

For this makeup look I mixed a CC Cream and a BB Cream simply because I wanted a light coverage but one was too light and the other was too dark for me. On top of the Ellis Faas cream eyeshadow I used Preppy, which is a very similar color. Sealing the cream product with powder helped this look stand up to the humid summer heat. Not that it needed it, though, the Creamy Eyes are quite long wearing. I also did a bit of contouring using a matte bronzer but skipped the blush completely. 

Do you wear these tones often?

  2. Hahah that's okay Coco I feel like explaining/describing colors is either something you've got or you don't… just like makeup skills WHICH YOU'VE TOTALLY GOT. Beautiful look as always. Seriously stunning :)

  3. I don't like this kind of colour on my pale skin but I think it looks beautiful on tanner skin like yours. Also, your skin looks absolutely flawless!!

  8. Earth tone or whatever name you want to give it, it looks great on you!

    That is a gorgeous shade! I'm not one for shimmery nail polishes, but that could be an exception!

  18. I only have one word to describe this look: BEAUTIFUL. Such a stunning look on you, Coco. I tend to gravitate towards such earthy colors daily because well... I know what works best for me and I'm not exactly the most experimental gal out there. You've just reminded me that I still need to pick up Mac Teddy. Looks gorgeous on the waterline.

  22. Ohhhh I absolutely loved this! The eye looks is smokey but it looks so organic and pretty. I also loved the lip color! 2014 will certainly be the year that I buy a NARS lip product.
