FOTD: Curacao Madness

I have absolutely no idea what I wanted to call this look, hence the very unoriginal name.  In any case i did another look with the new Curacao palette.  I wanted to pile on the brights but somehow ended up with all jewel toned colors so that it is not over the top bright.  I also wanted to use a brown for a transition color but there is no brown in the palette.  Instead I opted for orange which looks a bit odd but not too bad.

I look stupid but at least you can see the makeup.

I decided to take advantage of the sunshine and take some pictures outside.  I figured that with swatches, they are generally photographed better outside in the sun.  I'm not sure if the outdoor FOTD pictures came out all that well in terms of being able to see the makeup better though.

  1. This manages to be bright but still look sweet and feminine. Great job, love it!

  2. Oh, that is SO hot! Great job with the blending, too, BTW!

  3. I love this! The use of orange as a traditional shade looks REALLY neat, I love the idea!
