I haven't done a smokey eye for quite some time, so that was my goal for today. I'm REALLY loving Evil Shade's Gossamer blush... the duochrome finish is gorgeous. I wore it to school and got lots of compliments!
You can see a bit of Gossamer's beautiful duochrome here! :D
Face: Evil Shades Gossamer, Brazen Mineral Foundation, Brazen Hi-Def Powder
Lips: Morgana Cryptoria pastel lipstick in Lush, Brazen Burlesque lipgloss
Using the Morgana lipstick for a third time now, I don't think the formula is as drying as some other brands, but it does tend to settle into the cracks of my lips. I exfoliated my lips with Lush's Bubblegum lipscrub and prepped my lips with balm before applying with a brush. I find that as long as I apply it with a brush, (basically not caking the color on) and apply a gloss on top it feels much lighter. The stick is extremely pigmented though, so you really don't need a ton to begin with.
Again, can't give enough praise for Brazen's Hi-Def powder!! I applied it with a kabuki brush over a tad of foundation and it looks amazing on my skin. I use it alone on days I have to be up extremely early for school, too. I don't really need a lot of foundation/coverage though, but I love the "airbrushed finish" it gives!
