Happy Friday!

Products used (listed below):

Revlon ColorStay foundation

Benefit Stay Don't Stray eyeshadow primer

Maybelline Mineral bronzer (not pictured) for a slight glow

Nars Multiple Duo (Orgasm/South Beach) for highlights above cheekbones

Makeup Forever Aqua Cream in Warm Beige used all over as a shimmery base

L'oreal's Shocking Shadow Pigment in Intrepid over 1/2 the lid, in the crease and up towards the brow and in the corners taking it up and a bit outwards.

I've circled in the above photo the shadows used from the BH Cosmetics Matte Palette. The lightest shade went just below my brow and slightly into the top inner corner, the red/salmon color on the center of my lid for a pop of color and the darkest shade just in the crease.

Essence Kajal Eyeliner in Teddy along the upper lash line

Rimmel's Pure White pencil on the waterline

Paula Dorf's Browns for Brunettes (even though I am not one... well, maybe naturally!) eyebrow shadow

L.A. colors blush in Peach Rose

And lastly, Revlon's Color Burst Lipstick in Soft Nude (a great nude shade if you are looking for one!)
