Silver Greys With Falsies (and Dayna's Juiced)

This is my first time to try false lashes in 5 years, and it is SO not me. I do admit though that it adds some oomph to smoky eyes. I'll try to use other falsies so I can find which one suits my looks perfectly. It looks good for nights-out, but definitely not for every day. I used Silver Fog pigment for this look over Delft paint pot. Delft makes the silver pigment less flashy and more of bluish-silver instead of frosty, blinding silver. I blended Cumulus from the Blue Storm collection to the silver as well, to create a softer, more subtle hue.

I also used Dayna's blush in Juiced, and I love its pretty coral color. I've always been wary of coral-based mineral blushes because I thought it would look garish on my skin, but I was pleasantly surprised with this blush - it's not in-your-face but not shy to show its color either. It exudes pure fun!

the writer: thanks for dropping by! No I haven't done any "my collection" posts because, frankly speaking, it would take me a long time to unload, arrange and take pictures of everything. But I am contemplating and might do that soon! I just have to really set aside time to do it.=)

luvdalia: thank you! I'm a novice as well. It needs a little bit of practice, but not impossible. Keep trying!
