FOTD: Burning Sunset

I put this look together after class on Friday while I was waiting to go to work. It's something I haven't worn in a while; COLOR! :) I was inspired by the new Benefit blush "bella bamba". The box is composed of orange and purple and it just dances in the light! I'll make a post about the blush another day, but tonight is just this!

Without further ado, here's the face I wore on Friday night (which I ended up coming home and staying on the phone all night with Linda). Gah, I'm still frustrated!

  • Nars Sheer Glow foundation in Stromboli
  • Benefit Blush in Bella Bamba (bright watermelon pink)
  • Mac Dazzleglass Creme in Sublime Shine (nude orange with golden shimmer)

  • Benefit F.Y...eye! primer (nude eyeshadow base)
  • Rock&Republic Eyeshadow in Veil (matte off white - brow bone)
  • MAC Eyeshadow in Solar White (duo chrome yellow highlight - tear duct)
  • MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Engaging (shimmery golden orange - inner third)
  • MAC Pigment in Follow Your Fancy (shimmery bright orange - middle third)
  • MAC Eyeshadow in Creme de Violet (soft violet - crease)
  • Make Up For Ever Blush in 92 (matte rich violet - outer corner)
  • Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black
  • Anastasia Brow Powder in Medium Ash
  • Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara in Black
Yes, I used a shit load of eye products in this look! Usually I go for the 3-eyeshadow combo but I guess this was a special occasion since I was inspired :)

Sorry it looks a little harsh/unblended. I couldn't figure out what color to put in between the orange and purple and I didn't want to over-blend because it might get muddy. It looks really pretty far away and I got tons of compliments on it at work from customers. I'm glad I put on some color and hopefully this 'inspiration' will stay! ^_^

Goodnight y'all. I got to wake up super early to get to class. *SIGH*...
