FOTD: Magic Tricks

I did this look last week with Gosh Eyeshadow Quad in Magic Tricks.  This is a color combination that I've never worn before, simply because I didn't own such an awesome green.  Or if I do, it's hidden deep within the bowels of my collection and it never sees the sun.  I didn't oomph up the colors as much as I could have because I wanted to keep it a tiny bit subtle for work.

-Aveeno Tinted Moisturizer in Medium
-Cover FX Setting Powder in Light
-NARS Laguna Bronzer
-Tarte Amazonian Clay Brush in Amused

-Naked Palette: Buck, Virgin
-Lise Watier 24 Hrs Glam Eyeliner
-Milani Liquifeye in Black
-L'oreal Extra Collagen Mascara

-YSL Rouge Volupte Perle in 104 Stellar Pink

I will be the first to admit that I need some more color in my life, and my makeup has been too toned down lately.  How do you guys spice up your makeup when you're simultaneously trying to slap it on in a jiffy?


  1. This is a cute look! When I'm in a hurry but trying to add some color to my look, I usually use a colored eye liner! I know there's a much lower chance of me mucking things up with fairly safe eyeshadow shades, and just switching out my black or brown liner for aqua or purple.

  2. i've always liked purples and greens together :D

  3. Green and purple is such a pretty combo. My makeup has been boring lately too. I can't concentrate when I'm in a hurry, lol, especially when I'm rushing to get to work on time.

  4. "deep within the bowels of my collection" LOL! I LOVE the colours in this palette, they really suit you! If I do something really boring for work (neutral) I just do the old go-to of throwing on some coloured liner. It's not really that creative but it works.
