So Macaw is the bright yellow you see on my inner corners. I decided to pair it with Canopy as Canopy has this really lovely golden shimmer in it. I applied both colours so they overlap a bit and as Canopy has that golden glimmer, the colours glide into one another really seamlessly. When I did my crease with Amazon (a really lush green), I blended it a bit upwards towards the brow. After that I darkened the crease with Boa which should be "charcoal with golden irisdescence" is to my eye a dark, golden green. Whatever the colour is, I applied it directly on my crease on the socket (just as Decorative Diva did). I also blended the colours in with a wide brush, using light strokes side to side. I left my lower lid bare because I was going to work and I was a bit afraid that it would look too dark.
I really like the results. Actually, as I was on my way to work, a co-worker came to sit beside me on the bus and commented that my makeup looked beautiful. I wear makeup to work everyday but usually no one says anything (I don't know if that's good or bad...) so this really made my day.
As you can see, I'm a bit sleepy in this photo as I took it in the morning :) I think Canna looks so fresh, I'm a bit tempted to do a nude look but using Canna on my cheeks as the focal point.
Aromaleigh has come up with four new Nourishing Color Creme shades to brighten up their Gothic Lolita collection. I really like this product because it's very moisturising, the packaging is simple and the colour lasts surprisingly long. Sweet Tart is a shimmering mauveish colour, I'm really fond of it.
I'm hoping to get more looks for you this month as I feel a bit guilty for abandoning my blog and its readers. I hope you enjoyed this one, though!
