FOTD: Peony

Hello, My Pretties!

Yesterday I posted on some new L.A. Colors goodies that I purchased at my local Family Dollar.  One of the items I bought was a new 3 Color Eyeshadow Palette in Peony.  This trio consists of a bright sunny yellow, a bright hot pink, and a bright royal blue.  You know me and bright eyeshadows, I just had to try it out ASAP.

I busted it out this morning and this is what I did with it:


Avon Healthy Makeup Mousse Foundation in Medium Beige
Milani Minerals Compact Makeup in True Beige
Avon True Color Blush in Classic Aura


Boo-Boo Coverup
NYX Eyeshadow Base in White
L.A. Colors 3 Color Eyeshadow Palette in Peony
E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow in Enchanting
E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow in Celebrity

Eyes part 2

Garden Botanika Lash Primer
Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara in Jet Black
Avon Dual Ended Eye Liner in Blue-Turquoise


NYC Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City
L.A. Colors Lipstick in Cherry Red

To create this look, I first applied the Boo-Boo Cover Up all over the eyelids to cancel out the blue veins that show through.  I then applied a thin layer of the NYX Eyeshadow Base in White to the lid only to help the eyeshadows stick and stand out.

I applied the Peony eyeshadows to my lids only as they appear in the palette.  Yellow on the inner corner, pink in the middle, and blue in the outer corner. As rule of thumb for me, TONE DOWN--USE BROWN, I applied the matte finish E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow in Enchanting to my crease to mellow out the brightness just a bit.  For a brow highlight, I used another E.L.F. Mineral Eyeshadow this time in a shimmery beige, Celebrity.

To balance out the look somewhat, I added color to my lower lash line in the form of eyeliner instead of more eyeshadow.  I used the Avon Dual Ended Eye Liner in Blue-Turquoise.  The turquoise shade went on to about 2/3 of the lash line and the blue on the outer 1/3.

To finish off the eyes, I applied one coat of Garden Botanika Lash Primer and two coats of Smashbox Lash DNA Mascara in Jet Black.  My favorite mascara of the moment.  I love it.  Love it!!

I had first decided on just using the NYC Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City alone.  It looked fine.  Less color on the lips to make the eyes be the focus of my face.  But then I thought it looked too bland.  It is not set in stone that if you wear bright eyes, you must use a nude lip.  Do what you want!  So I took out my new L.A. Colors Lipstick in Cherry Red and applied it on top of Nude York City.  Turns out that was a good idea.  The lip is still toned down but with a slight wash of red color.  Lovely.

And so there you go!  A nice, bright makeup look to go along with this nice and bright day we are having today.  I am feeling good and I hope that you all are as well.  Let's have a happy day!
