Wish You Were Here: New Orleans

Normally, I do not do coral colours on my eyes ... they just don't like me. But with this kit I LOVE them ... they are so pretty ... and this one was fun to play with. I really went into this one with no plan ... just started putting colours in different places.

Needless to say that made it difficult to remember exactly what I had done when the time came to type it in ;)


basic face routine
Papaya Blush; used Soft Sweep Face Brush

Au Natural applied dry over entire eye area; used Flathead Shadow brush
The Big Easy applied dry in crease and along lower lashline; used Crease brush
Mardi Gras foiled over entire lid; used Wet/Dry brush
Voodoo foiled on center 1/3 of upper lid; used Wet/Dry brush
Mardi Gras and Voodoo foils blended together; used Wet/Dry brush
The Big Easy thickly wetlined along upper lashline; used bent Eye Liner brush
Voodoo thinly wetlined at base of upper and lower lashlines (create double line effect on upper lashline); used bent Eye Liner brush
Loreal Telescopic Carbon Black mascara (both lashlines)
Cargo Blu_Ray mascara in black (upper lashline only)

Sienna lip liner
Melonie buxom lip polish
Destiny buxom lip polish

Questions? Comments? Please feel free to post ... and thanks for looking!


  1. I love that one! You're crazy if you think that it doesn't look good. You look beautiful. :)

    I love corals, so I might have to try this. Do you have any color substitution ideas since I don't have the ones you are using?

  2. You need a darker coral, a lighter peachy colour, and a medium blue-purple. Remind me which Cindy colours I gave you? I am sure there are some good subs in there!

  3. I love your interpretation of this look! Using Au Natural with it was inspired, I borrow that. Thanks for the idea.


Please be nice (that doesn't mean you have to like the look ... just be nice about not liking it!) ... no one likes a troll ;)
