FOTD: Earthen Lady ft. Black Rose Minerals

Hello sexy people of blogger~

Here is a look from yesterday.  I was determined to use some of my lesser used cosmetics, which consist all my loose eyeshadows (mineral makeup + pigments).  I really wanted to use some of my Sugarpill stuff but settled on some Black Rose Mineral samples instead.  In case you've missed it, I bought a load of samples a while back and you can view all the swatches here.   I wanted to do something crazy and colorful but alas, I used too much brown (Earthen) and it looks very tame.  Oh well.  Other than the darker green (Were Me Out), all colors were used dry.

Bleh.  I have been very unhappy with my full face shots lately.  But I post them so that you can see the makeup.

-Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer in Medium
-Laura Mercier Setting Powder
-NYC Matte Bronzer
-Laura Geller Blush in Tropical Hues
-NARS Multiple in Copacabana

-MAC Painterly Paintpot
-BRM in Frost (inner corner and brow highlight), Lady (lid color), Were Me Out (Outer V), & Earthen (crease)
-Too Faced e/s in Heaven
-L'oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Liner
-L'oreal Waterproof Carbon Black Mascara

-YSL Golden Gloss #14

I'm not sure I get the full hang of using mineral makeup yet.  But that's what practice is for right? Hopefully the next one will be better!

Thanks for stopping by, everyone!
