FOTD: Coral Shadow and Double Wings

Tuesday, June 22, 2010
I'm using the Avon Aquadelic Quad today for my FOTD, but I am ashamed to say that I'm not including the gorgeous robin's blue shade that absolutely makes the quad one of the prettiest ones I've ever seen. (I'm scared of blues, but one of these days I'll over come it and do a FOTD with it, I swear). I wanted to play with the matte coral eyeshadow, because it's a shade I've never used for the eyes. 
My chief concern is that with red, coral and pink eyeshadow is that it'll go horribly wrong and make my eyes look puffy and inflamed, like a horrible case of pink eye. I tried to keep the color really strong and below the crease to sort of 'contain' it instead of blending it out, but due to the creasing of my eyelids, you can't even see the color when my eyes are open! Fail! In addition, to keep my face from looking overly warm, I went with a nude glowy blush. 
Face: Monistat Anti Chafe Gel, L'oreal Magic Perfecting Base, NARS Concealer Ginger/Custard, MUFE HD, e.l.f. Complexion Perfection and Hard Candy Pin Up Blush.
Eyes: UDPP, NYX Milk Jumbo Eye Pencil, Avon Aquadelic Quad, Wet'n'Wild Cream Liner and Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara
Lips: Rimmel Smooch 
Brows: NYX Brow Powder in Taupe/Ash

I've been on a 'soft and dainty' look kick lately, can you tell?
