Colorful everyday summer look

Hello makeup-lovers and fellow spooks! :)

Summer is a time of color and a color that I like very much but seldom use is orange. Orange usually makes me think of fall and Halloween, but it is also suitable for summer. I made this look over a week ago but I haven't had time to post it before now.

I've got loads of Makeup Geek eyeshadows that I intend to review some time, but since it (for some reason) is taking me such a long time to do so I will present the shadows in different looks instead.

The shadow I've used today is Mandarine which is a vibrant orange with specks of gold. It has great color payoff and it didn't crease on me even though I used it with concealer as my only primer. On the swatch picture, the eyeshadow is applied on bare skin.

A similar eyeshadow is Flamepoint by Sugarpill, but I think this
is a little better since Flamepoint is more of a reddish orange, while Mandarine is a more... well, orangey orange I guess. ;)

So let's move on to the look:

When adding a colorful eyeshadow to the outer corner of the eye, rather than on the whole lid, and blending it well it can be used to get a more subtle and wearable look.

Black lipstick of course, no surprise I guess. ;)

  4. Absolutely amazing! I love your color choice, especially the black lipstick. Anyway, I love your bull ring! When did you have it pierced? I can see that your ears have a lot of piercings too. You’re a tough one, hehe! I only have two as of now, one septum and in my ear shell.
