FOTD – Breaking out my pigments!

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 20 - 2010

WOAHHHHHHHHH too much blush.

Aside from that, I was really pleased with how this turned out!  I was looking forlornly into my pigment drawer thinking that I don’t use them enough and although it was 6pm in the evening and I had just done my first DIY home facial (courtesy of Liz… yeah, we’re on first name terms innit) I decided to have a little play anyway.  Was that the longest sentence in the blogosphere?  Possibly.

I really need to start using more than 2 eyeshadow shades, I really enjoyed playing!

    Very, very pretty- i’m into those kinda warm colours at the mo, as I bought the Sleek Sunset palette recently. I have quite a few loose shadows/ pigments, and I hardly ever wear them, you’ve inspired me!

  5. Ooooh, BB cream i spy BB cream in your list! The look is beautiful, the colour combo is beautiful! Reminds me of a graceful Phoenix bird 😀 xxx

    Metallic gorgeous hotness.

  7. sugar says:

    very pretty! :3

  8. Thanks everyone!

    @Jules – Yes! My first BB Cream! I picked one that was too sheer though :( I’ve got a Skin Food one to try next, I love how they feel on my skin

  9. Lillian says:

    Looks amazing! Personally i don’t think you used too much blush, you look great. The eyes are just gorgeous.

    Hi Charlotte! I’ve been sneaking peeks at (read: spending FAR too long reading through) your blog for a few weeks now, originally because you’ve got the same colouring as me and I figured that your swatches might actually have a hope in hell of looking similar on my pale skin…. then I got addicted to your snarkiness :-)

    Just wanted to agree with everyone else’s comments – lovin’ the look! I don’t normally leave comments but felt compelled to disagree that you’d used too much blusher – I think you look glowy, and your eyebrows in particular look FAB!

    Keep up the good work – the uber-fair, snarky females among us demand it!

    this is perfect! this soft immaculately blended soft haze of colour at the outer corner is divine. perfect look, not too much blush as all, perfect. you’ve inspired me to try using my pigments more: they’re so faffy though, boo :S

  12. You look stunning here!

  13. such a gorgeous look. And not too much blush at all! I really need to try out Melon pigment soon.

  14. Ciambella says:

    Well aren’t you gorgeous! The metallic look and color scheme of your eyes is especially nice. How do you like the BB Shimmer Brick? I’m tempted, but I’m afraid it’ll be too glittery!

  15. Julia Arenas says:

    Waw, yeah a BB Cream base ^v^ You’re good at this, girl…your eyes are radiant!

  16. gio says:

    I love this look, it’s beautiful!

  17. I don’t use pigments too ofter but I’m always amazed by the result when I try a look with them.
    Very nice combo and I’m in love with your lipstick, gorgeous shade.

  18. bb cream! Where did you find skin79 may I ask.. I’ve found a skin food store in Dublin (I live in Ireland) but really want to try other brands and your skin looks gorgeous! Im really looking for a pigmented one though

  19. Kendra says:

    This is GORGEOUS.
    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months ago, and I always love looking at your EOTD’s and FOTD’s, since I have a similar eye shape to you. The looks you do are always so pretty, and really give me an idea of what I could do.
    I really hope you never stop blogging.
