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

    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

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

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

    NYX Slim Lipliner in Nectar
    NYX Black Label Lipstick in

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 ;)

I think you look really pretty...Very nice neutral look.You pulled it off well!!!!

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 Mary!

Hi Lucy!
Thank you so much!
I'll try the crease shadow all-over soon ;)

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 ;)

Hej ITM!
