I’m not going to lie, I’ve been a bit lazy with my beauty challenge posting. Sorry.

April I took the photos but didn’t post them to the Flick Set and in May I only took about a dozen shots. Was I not at work much? Because normally I take a pic before I leave for work in the morning and I think I took a little time off and that threw off my normal schedule.

These last 2 months I’ve gone back to my security blanket, eye shadow! I’m still in love with Bare Escentuals Oz shadow, this gorgeous emerald green shade that won’t stop making me smile whenever I put it on. I also discovered a new eyeliner that will be in my summer rotation, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On eye pencil in Covet has become a favorite too. It’s a peacock green, it’s not exactly teal and not a true Kelly green but it’s definitely my favorite.

Since I’ve gone bold on the eyes or done fun liner (check out my bright blue Milani Infinite liquid liner in Infinite a bright blue on the may set) I’ve been sticking to pink or glossy nude lips. I  haven’t been that satisfied with my lip color pairings lately, I’m just on a quest for that perfect color. I came close with my Three Custom color lip gloss but I’m still on a mission for something more. I may have to go back to them and try to develop another color.

I also threw in a few red and deep orange lips as well. I picked up some new colors at the Makeup Show so hopefully I will find what I’ve been craving in terms of lipstick.

Oh and my makeup has changed a bit as you go into my May looks. I’ve been testing out airbrush makeup and I’ll have to talk about that in it’s own separate post. I didn’t think I’d love it but I kind of do. There are 2 brands that I’ve been switching back and forth on with my airbrush machine and I love the soft perfect finish it gives my skin and I think it lasts even longer than traditional foundation.

So I’ve got lots more makeup talk to come. Have any of you tried anything new makeup wise lately that I should try to? Let me know, I’m always searching for the latest and greatest.

  1. As I was going through your photos, I was thinking “please tell me what green eyeshadow that is, please please” and thank goodness you did. I love it! My skin tone isn’t quite as rich as yours, but I still think it would flatter me! I was JUST running out of my plum Urban Decay eyeliner, and kind of bored with ALWAYS wearing the same color. I may just have to make an Ulta lunch run and pick some of this up…!
