Yesterday, I shared with you a couple of looks I did with my Luminess Air Essentials, but I wanted to talk about the rest of the stuff on my face today, including some Fiona Styles and Cargo eye makeup!
The first look I built around my new Fiona Styles Radiant Aqua Eye Veil in Baltic. It's a gorgeous periwinkle color, but it didn't give me that shimmer I was craving.
I couldn't have been more surprised at the shadow I found to compliment it and give me that boost of shimmer. It's from a free, unnamed Ulta palette that I recently got in a GWP. It's white with a lovely floral pattern, and it has a few really lovely shadows in it!
I fell in love with the colors of the Cargo Down Under palette, and bought it without finding any swatches online, which is not something I usually do! Cargo palettes for me are a little hit-or-miss. Some can be powdery, which I think this one is. This palette follows the trend for this Spring with light, earthy, washes of color. There's not much that's bold about this palette. Bondi is the closest thing to a bold there is.
It also comes with a double-ended brush that I haven't tried yet, and a black eyeliner pencil that I used in this look, but probably won't again. I've never gotten fallout from an eye pencil before using this one. I seriously had a dusting of black powder on my cheeks! It also smudged into my lower eyelid crease pretty much immediately. Raccoon eyes before I even left the bathroom! What's up, Cargo?
I also tried a new Cargo lipstick for this look, and though they call it a 'wine' color, it leans very brown on me. I do like it, though.
What I used for this look: Luminess Air Porcelain, Ultra2 foundation, Tulip blush and Glow highlighter, Cargo Down Under Eye Shadow palette, Cargo Dolce lipstick, Bare Minerals Lash Domination mascara, Vincent Longo Micro Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette, and UD Original Eye Primer.
What do you think of the Cargo Down Under Eye Shadow palette? Have you tried any of the Fiona Styles new line of makeup?
