There is something so refreshing about this makeup look. To me, the pop of blue on the eyes paired with a pinky lilac lips has a very cool and fresh look to it. It's a fun and pretty Summer makeup look. I actually wore it to Kiko's sister and sister in law birthday party over the weekend and he really liked it a lot ^_^. Kiko is my biggest fan/makeup critic, so I believe him when he says that I look nice ^_^.
I kept my face makeup to a minimum. I used a face primer (Rimmel London Fix and Perfect foundation primer), just a few dots of liquid foundation, just enough to even out my skin tone, a dab of concealer (Almay Line Smoothing concealer) under my eyes to make me look awake and a light application on foundation powder (Mark Powder Buff foundation) to keep everything in place. I know, it's more than one product and it sounds like a lot, but I promise I only used very little of each. The weather was warm and I didn't want nasty melting makeup on my face O_o.
For the eye makeup, I used a matte brown eye shadow to create a soft contour on the crease (Mark I-Mark eye shadow in Espresso $5 buy HERE) and a shimmery light pink eye shadow (Mark I-Mark eye shadow in Cake $5 buy HERE) to highlight the eye lids...
...for the pop of blue, I used a baby blue shadow on the inner half and a darker blue, like a periwinkle blue on the outer half of the lower lash line. NYC City Duet eye shadow in Yankee Blues $2.99 (at your local drugstore) was the perfect colors because it has 2 shades of blue that compliments each other. I know, I could have used one color, but using two kinds of blue is more interesting because the color transitions from light to dark creating dimension, which I think is super cool ^_^
Wet n Wild Color Icon blusher in Pearlescent Pink $2.99 (Buy it drugstores) is what I used on my cheeks. It's a gorgeous peachy pink with gold shimmers, almost like Nars blush in Orgasm. It goes with everything!

MAC cremesheen lipstick in "I Like It Like That" $14.50. I'm really loving this lipstick, so I had to use it again. It's a gorgeous pinky lilac shade with a cremesheen finish. I think cremesheen is becoming my new favorite lipstick finish. It's creamy with a slight gloss to it. It never dries out my lips.
Here are some photos from the little birthday fiesta. Kiko got these balloons for his sister and sister in law.
He also got them their own cakes...Tiramisu for his sister and a Red Velvet for his sister in law. Both were yummy!
Kiko and I...Asssuus... I likeit when he looks scruffy. The flower on my head band is so huge, it looks like a pom pom bow haha...I like it...It's cute ^_^.
You should try this look. It's very easy to do and the pop of blue is not too loud, making it very wearable. I hope everyone is having a great Summer!!!
