Natural/Neutral EOTD

Today I opted for a natural look, using mostly The She Space pigments for the eyes...


Shade descriptions:
  • Dark Mystery - Very dark purple color matte eye shadow
  • Fist Class Con - Nude bisque pearl
  • Marshmallow Mist - Twinkling golden pearl
  • Stars Say Yes - Simmering tree bark plum glimmer


    Eyes:
    Urban Decay Primer Potion
    The She Space First Class Con - all over eyelid up to brow bone
    The She Space Marshmallow Mist - on browbone and close to tear duct
    The She Space Stars Say Yes - outer 1/3 of lid
    Jenulence Dark Mystery - outer v and crease
    MAC Fluidline in Nightfish - upper lash line
    Maybelline Colossal Mascara in black



    Face:
    Earthen Glow Minerals Cover Me Foundation in Cara
    Earthen Glow Minerals Translucent Soft Focus finishing powder

    Cheeks:
    Earthen Glow Minerals Peaches Copper blush
    Earthen Glow Minerals Bronzing Powder in Early Summer

    Lips:
    NYX Slim Lipliner in Nectar
    NYX Black Label Lipstick in
    Satin












I think the outcome is just so-so; sort of bland...sort of meh... ;)
Perhaps those colors are a little to warm for my coloring; and therefore make me look a little washed out...?

What do you all think?

See you very soon ;)

Vanessa said...

Hi Krista!
Thank you so much!
I'm not sure I like it, though... ;)

Mary said...

I like it, Vanessa! You're very pretty and although that's a more natural look, it still accentuates your features. I think we're just used to color :)I love the lip color on you.

Lucy said...

Looking beautiful as always. The colors are a good neutral for you. Like the lipstick also. How about the crease color allover the lid? I'd like to see that look.

Nessa said...

Basic, but very pretty! A nice 'work look' :)

Velvet said...

Oooh, don't say "washed out"! I'm thinking very elegant! Honestly...I think the choices in color are beautiful with your skin tone. I realize that I'm looking at a photo and not directly at you. If anything it's very pretty for photo taking! But then again...I think you look beautiful all the time...lol!

I don't think you look bland or "meh" at all. I like seeing you in these colors. It's a nice change of pace. I'm going to have to check my recent TSS haul and see if I have any of these colors. I know I have Marshmallow Mist. I bought it after seeing you wear it one of your FOTDs.

Do you suppose it's because it is matte? I have a Trish (I think) that I just pat on when something needs some spark (literally.)

Tuli said...

Hi Nessa!
Thanks ;)

Hi Velvet!
How sweet of you; thanks!! ;)

Hi Robyn!
Thank you! That Marshmallow Mist is really something xtra, isn't it? ;)

Hi Karin!
Trish, who? :D
I have lots of sparklies to put on if I want to, but it was my intention not to have too much sparkle in this FOTD ;)

Hi Tuli!
Thank you so much ;)
