FOTD: Getting Naked

I purchased a crapload of Naked mineral pigments over a year ago because there was an awesome deal on them.  Unfortunately, I'm still a newbie when it comes to using loose eyeshadows so I haven't really been using them too much.  As a matter of fact, today is the first time that I'm using them for a look (shame on me!).  Using these guys has really been an experience, because they're all so shimmery and i have to really blend them out for the glittery to go away.  I've also been experimenting with wetting eyeshadows and leaving them dry....and I made a messy.  If you don't get it right, the eyeshadow gets all clumpy and impossible to blend out.  I did succeed, however, in creating a look that I'm happy with, regardless that the two eyes don't match.

-Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base
-Smashbox Foundation Light 3
-Cover FX Setting Powder in Light
-NYC Matte Bronzer in Sunny
-NARS Blush in Oasis
-Stila Illuminating Powder in Gold
-NARS Multiple in Copacabana

-MAC Paint Pot in Painterly
-Naked e/s in Blushing Bronze #6, Mother Nature #5, Naturally Nude #5, Blushing Bronze #1
-Too Faced e/s in Heaven
-Stila Smudgepot in Black
-INGLOT waterproof mascara

-EOS Lip Balm
-Maybelline l/s in On the Mauve
-Sephora l/g in Bronzed Beauty

I rarely (more like never) use pink eyeshadow.  Tried it once using for a muted pink and brown look and it was definitely not cute.  However, I think I have found a better way to break into pink and hope to use it a lot more often.

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Now I know why everyone takes pictures in the bathroom.  The lighting is so much better!
