Lately, I’ve been all over tumblr taking inspiration from just about everything. This weekend a few tags caught my eye – nu-grunge and grunge pastel. I’ve put together this pink grunge-y face of the day look channeling this inspiration while using some of the products I’ve already reviewed on my blog.
On the eyes, I placed shadows from the Lime Crime Venus Palette: Muse, Veuns, Shell, Aura, and a little Divine blended in the crease. Highlight is Bitter Lace Beauty Enchanted. Bronzer is MAC Blunt. Lips are La Splash in Lovestruck. The mascara is a blend of my two favorite mascaras for short, stubby lashes – Sephora Outrageous Volume and Rimmel Lash Accelerator.
As you can see, the Venus Palette shades pulled very pink/purple on my skin as opposed to the marsala hues seen in the pan, thus, I’ve named this a pink nu-grunge FOTD. Although I am a bit sad it was not as red as I imagined, I still love how these colors look on my skin and bring out my eyes.
This La Splash color is from their Smitten Lip Tint Mousse collection. I adore all the shades they have! My only concern is that the smell is very strong – reminiscent of paint. The staying power is good; just make sure to apply evenly or else as it wears you will end up with a gritty texture due to it pilling off your lips.
Hope you enjoyed this look. Let me know what you think!
