Take it to the Beach!

The last few weeks have been pretty rough, and I'm in need of a makeover! Feel like I'm starting to look old, yikes! I've decided to enter Ms. Yaya's Take it to the Beach contest for a 'lil bit of fun :) This is the first 'look' contest I've ever joined, and I'll probably not win, hehe, but hey it perked up my mood and gave me a chance to play with my mmu and pigment samples.

My inspiration photo is of a sunset that I took a couple of years ago, while on a vacation at a beach in Anilao, Batangas. Oh, is the inspirational photo supposed to be of a certain look? :)

I used Glittersniffer's eyeshadow in 24k (pictures can be clicked to enlarge).

Tried the different settings on my camera.

I'm sweaty (you can actually see the beads of sweat on my face) and flushed in these pictures 'cause I went to the upper floor of our house where it's really sunny- and really hot!

Items used:

Tools - Bare Naturals' Kabuki brush
Adorned With Grace's Ingenue Large Dual Fiber brush
ELF Studio Complexion brush
Everyday Minerals Everyday eyeshadow brush
EcoTools Eye Blending brush
EcoTools Eyeliner brush

Face - Beautiful Girl Minerals Foundation in Medium Warm
Aromaleigh Ultra Resolution Finishing Powder in Translucent

Cheeks - Aromaleigh Illuminating Perle Powder in Afterglow
Lumiere blush in Apricot

Lips - Silk Naturals Organic Lipgloss in Breathless
Fyrinnae Lip Luster in Kitty Ears

Eyes (in order of use) - The All Natural Face's Vegan Eyeyshadow Primer
The All Natural Face's Snow White Eyeshadow
Glittersniffer's 24k Eyeshadow
Beautiful Girl Minerals Multi Purpose Powder in New Moon
Glittersniffer's Blow Eyeshadow
Aromaleigh Pure Drama Eyeliner in Copper
My Minerals Bath and Body Brow Fix (clear) for brows & lashes

And there you have it. I still have a long way to go with e/s application. Ms. Yaya's contest is open 'til July 24, 2009 :)

I like the way you look, the color is so pigmented, don't know how you make those powders to stay put on the face. I'm a total newb to mineral products and I just placed my first everyday minerals sample kit last week.
