Icy neutral with cateye liner and coral lips

Apologies for the lack of looks the past few days.  Friday found us teaching the dog to swim, and getting my face burned by sunscreen.  Saturday, my eyes were still tender, and I was with a friend, so it didn’t get posted till thismorning, and was uninspired.

Today, my eyes are STILL puffy from the bad reaction.  So I’m keeping neutrals, and relying on the liner to keep the contour perky.  You can REALLY tell in the closeups.  Plus, you can see how bloodshot my eye is.  I am almost looking forward to posting a long rant to warn others away from that sunscreen. I hate having sensitive skin.

I’m actually REALLY impressed by my blush today. I swatched it earlier this week, but all of my swatches had led me to believe it would be far too dark and orange to look right on me, though it was suitable for a skin tone in my range.  On, though, it actually blended far sheerer to be a lovely nude coral that is FAR prettier than the NARS Orgasm, in my opinion.  I’d been waiting to do a softer coral neutral, so that it wouldn’t compete with my usually overdone eyes.
