FOTD & Tutorial: Coral & Wild Mango


Brrr! It's windy in San Francisco! But I love it compared to hot sticky LA!

I am exhausted and I have a long two days ahead of me, so I will try and squeeze in as much as I can! Thanks to all of you wishing me a safe trip! You gals are so sweet, and speaking of sweet, all we've been eating is dessert and gummy bears. LOL.

Once I get back home I will do a review on the Milani Eye Pencils, as well as swatch Bio Green along side with UD "graffiti" and MAC's "wondergrass".

I did a look using Mad Minerals's "Wild Mango" and MMBB's "Deep Coral". It's a very simple, natural look in person, and really accentuates those with peachy undertones. I paired it with MAC's Lipglass in "Sockhop".

What I used:

- Monistat Chafing Gel as primer
- MAC StudioFinish Concealer NC30
- Silk Naturals Foundation

- EDM "All Smiles"
- Mlani Blush in "Luminous"

- MUFE Flash Color Paint in White all over the lid
- MAC e/s in "Mylar" all over the lid over MUFE paint
- Mad Minerals e/s in "Wild Mango" on outer-v and contour
- MMBB "Deep Coral" on outer-V
- ULTA "Gold Leaf" and Milani "Beach Sand" as highlight
- MAC Fluidline in "Nightfish"
- L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara
- False Eyelashes (old ones forgot which brand/style)

- AVON "Nude Pink"
- MAC l/g in "Sockhop"

Then applied "Mylar" all over the base to set:

*Applied WET

Should like this:


Line and apply mascara

you should have been in SF the Saturday that just pass by. it was so warm and nice outside. everyone was out at the beach or outside in general just enjoying the weather.

where was that picture taken of you with that statue?

that looks pretty. you always pull off corals and reds so well. i'm one of those people that is scared to wear red/pink lipstick and red eyeshadows! i don't think it'd look good on my skin tone. i'm not dark or anything. i'm more olive tone, but i just never thought i'd look good wearing red. my mom and sister loooooove wearing red lipstick, though!
