Reader Request FOTD using Milani's "Mai Tai" Blush


A reader requested a FOTD using Milani's "Mai Tai" Blush, so here it is, sporting my new orange and white striped shirt I got at Ross for $6! I love Ross! I go cheap on everything else but makeup (and my family), LOL how sad is that???! But I swear, you can find awesome deals at Ross! I love cheap buys! :)

So I LOVE the "Mai Tai" blush, to me it's a dead ringer for the Hipness Blush, well good enough for me anyway...And I love how smooth it goes on using my new CVS powder brush which reminds me of the Japonesque brush.

What I used:


- Pure Luxe Erase as my primer
- MAC StudioFinish Concealer NC30
- Silk Naturals Foundation in Buttery Gold


- Milani Blush in "Mai Tai"

- NYX single eyeshadow in "Golden Orange" (also on outer corners of lower lashline)
- L'Oreal HIP Pigment in "Progressive" on Outer-V and contour
- MAC e/s in "Patina" and "Mulch" on outer V and crease
- Milani "Beach Sand" as highlight (applied dry) and a lil bit of MAC "Your Ladyship" Pigment
- Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in "Black"
- L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara

- MAC Lipstick in "Curtsy"
- AVON Lipstick in "Nude Pink"
- AVON Lipgloss in "Nude Peach"

I have a shirt similar to that at AE and it was like 20bucks. the shirt is really cute though. i like those milani blushes I think all of the colors are really great.

I love Ross too! :D Hehe. I buy alot of my clothes there too. LOL! But hey, they have cute clothes at cheap prices man! Whatever works. :D I love the Mai Tai blush on you! I was seriously thinking of getting it after you posted about it the first time on here. But I told myself I'd get it later. But I think I have a mineral blush that is similar to that color already. But I can't remember what it's called. LOL! :D Anywho sis, you look gorgeous as always! I love you in orange, it's such a fun and playful color. Hehe. :D

This look makes me want summer to come now! Gotta love Ross for great savings, except I hate searching through the messy racks. I love the shirt! It reminds me of something that Stephie would wear!
