About Face: Raspberry Reflection

The title of this post happens to be the name of one of my favorite Maybelline lip gloss, which I am not wearing in the following pictures. It still seemed appropriate, as I want to showcase two of my favorite beauty products: berry lipstick and a shimmery highlight on the cheekbones.

I kept the eyes easy and neutral thanks to Maybelline's Color Tattoo in "Bad to the Bronze" and Urban Decay's "Buck" in the crease.  Lorac's eyeshadow in "Enlighten" is simply amazing for the inner corner of the eyes to brighten them up!  Gosh, I love that shadow; it looks dull in the pan but once it's popped on the eye it looks gorgeous.  To compensate for the simple eyes, I made my lashes a teensy spidery; I like that sometimes.

If I were a Revlon lipstick, I would be this one: Fuschia Fusion.  Application is smooth, flawless, beautiful.  I get compliments whenever I wear this.  The glowy nature of my cheeks comes from TheBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer.  This powder can be overdone quite easily, so I make sure to barely apply it.  I think the combination of raspberry lips and dewy face is quite lovely.  I wore versions of this look almost every day last spring and summer.  LOVE.

  1. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be
    running off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
    Many thanks
