An Understated Blue

This is by my favorite in a really long time. When I showed this to my hmmmm what to call him…I’ll have a think and get back to you….anyway when I showed him, he said it was a bit understated for me! I love it though! It’s probably my best blending to date! I thought it was great color placement! Hooray for me and my mad skillz!

I only used two colors for the entire look and some shimmering white loose powder!

Eyes:
Bnever Shimmering Loose Powder
Bnever White Eyeshadow
Urban Decay Deluxe Eyeshadow in Adore!

Hmmmm I like understated 😉

Questions, Comments, Suggestions? I’m ears!

I’m NOT a Sun Seeker!

I’m not entirely sure where I was when the craze of bronzers came into play! I believe it all started with Benefit’s Glamazon! I remember it well now!

Call me crazy but I’d prefer to be pale faced and pink cheeked rather then tanned and “healthy”. I believe that’s what it’s called now! You’re not only tanned but your healthy! Whoever said that is an idiot!

For two seasons or so now I’ve had the disappointment of having to deal with seeing line after line coming out dedicated to the sun, tanning, bronzing, golds, and browns, and yada yada yada!

It’s all rubbish to me! I hate the idea of a tanned, brown face. Whoever said the healthy bit after tan is the same idiot who said that a tanned face, legs and such creates a slimming appearance! Well, as far as this girl is concerned, anytime I’ve actually let myself become tanned I’ve always appeared to pack on 10 pounds with the damn tan! Hell, I’ve already round enough I don’t need a damn tan to excentuate my curves!

Now this season has totally thrown me some major curve balls. I’ve grown used to seeing the bronzers pop up, the palettes, etc..etc….

However, it appears every single line I love and adore has thrown in the hat and decided to jump on the bronzing bandwagon!

First of all, a few weeks ago, much to my sister’s delight (A sun goddess if ever I did see one), I recieved the “tan” themed Sephora catalog!

Now my sister loves this! She thought it was the next best thing since sliced bread and electricity! Me, I wasn’t as impressed! The entire damn thing had page upon page of disappointing bronzers and tanning bits!

If you know me, you realize that a majority of everything in the Sephora catalog ends up on my wish list! I flipped through this summer’s catalog and I have a wish list full of a whole lotta NOTHING! Zip, zero, NADA!

With a heavy heart I bucked myself up and convinced myself I’d be ok! MAC and my other favorite lines would not disappoint me with all this sun, tanning crap!

I’ve got news for you! They decided to disappoint me!

MAC is releasing a new color story on May 31st entitled….hold your breath for this…Sunstrip! And what do we have in this collection? Bronzing powders! Oh JOY!

Now over the course of the entire month I’ve devoured ever piece of gossip on ever line I love! Too Faced, Chanel, Lunasol (just the damn name alone gives that one away doesn’t it?), Yves Saint Laurent, Etc…etc….All the gossip reads the same. Bronzers, Bronzers, Bronzers!

I’ve reached my final straw today when I read about Shu Uemura’s Golden Summer Collection!

Even Shu Uemura has joined in the evil forces against me!
I’m ending my rant now and I’m going to drown myself in my bath tub now!
For those sun divas lucky enough to have gorgeous, slim faces to wear these colors! Good for you! Enjoy!
As for me, I’ll stick with my just pinched pink cheeks and give my wallet and credit cards a rest this summer 🙂
