This is the result of trying to find the perfect daytime taupe for me. I have found that there are some rectrictions; the perfect taupe for me needs to be warm rather than cool. Although this was a very pretty daytime look, it wasn't as flattering as I'd hoped it to be.
I used Sundara Cosmetics minerals for this.
Main lid color: Sundara Cosmetics Mocha Taupe.
Lid highlight: Sundara Cosmetics Saint.
Eyeliner: Essence Mother Earth Is Watching You gel liner
Saint is exactly the same color as Sweetscents' Oriental Beige or Mineralissima's Latte. It's a yellowish satin color with lots of sheen.
I do not know what has gotten into me these past months but all I wear or want to wear or want to buy is taupe. I've been sistematically working on the colors I have in my Z-palette and, in fact, am probably going to use up all the neutrals in there by the end of this year, some by summer even. I feel reassured that my stash is not going to waste.
I also have to mention how Bethainy's (Iwanted2c1video on YouTube) tip on mixing shimmery eyeshdow with moisturizer to get a liquid highliter is working out amazingly for me. It seriously transforms any horribly frosty shadow I hate using on my eyes into a perfect gleaming sheeny subtle highlight.This, too, will undoubtedly contribute to me using up more shadows by the end of this year. I practically used half of a pink frost shadow that I designated to be my cheeck highlight.
Off-topic: Winter is finally kicking in =). It's been snowing for a week and I'm loving it. It's cold so my heating bill is going to sky-high but the snow is sooooooo pretteh. I'm also through with my exams and don't have to worry about single one I have left untill summer.
Triple yay =)
