My Weekend Look: Coastal Scents Eyeshadow / Make Up For Ever

It was my friend Shauna’s birthday party dinner on Friday night and since I was wearing my cute multi-colored Target dress, I wanted to do something intense with my makeup. I started off doing something neutral with the eyes, but my Coastal Scents palette has so many fun colors in it that I got inspired by the matte red shade that I used on the lower lash line area.

Coastal Scents Palette Look

The Coastal Scents palettes are great for makeup artists or people who want to experiment with colors and don’t want to spend all of the money on single eyeshadows. The palette is currently about $20 and comes with 88 small eyeshadow pans. That is a lot of colors! The quality isn’t top notch, but pretty good for the price. I wanted a bright white highlight under my brow, so I used my Palladio White eyeliner pencil and smudged with my finger. I painted on a liquid eyeliner line that started out thin and got thicker as I progressed towards the outer edge of my eye. I used Maybelline Ultra Liner, which is one of my favorite cheapie liners!

I am using stuff I bought last week from Sephora: Click here to see the LONG LIST!

Short version of what I am wearing:

MAKE UP FOR EVER Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation – No. 30 – Porcelain
MAKE UP FOR EVER Duo Mat Powder Foundation – 202 – Translucent Beige
MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinish Blush – 13 Smooth Talker mixed with MAKE UP FOR EVER HD Microfinish Blush – 4 Walk of Shame. I took whatever was left over from my mix (I mixed both shades on the back of my hand) and patted it on my lips with a little bit of a hot pink lipliner. I applied a clear gloss over the top for shine and moisture. Over the top of the blush, I pressed on the TARINA TARANTINO Sparklicity Pure – Crystal Pure with a small blush brush.

To top it all off, I used my amazing Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Eau de Toilette Roll-On – 0.2 oz Eau de Toilette Rollerball which will be my favorite scent of the season! I have already gone through two bottles of this perfume since 2004. I love this stuff! My friend’s birthday gift!? Well, I could NOT resist getting her this cute gift set: NARS Temptation Gift Set which has Super Orgasm Blush and Orgasm Nail Polish!
