FOTD: Violet Volt

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another Face of the Day.  This is a look I wore during my IMATS/Makeup Show haul coming soon!  It's a focus on glowy skin and a fun, bright lip.  Check it out!
First off, I'm still getting used to applying makeup to my much tanner, post-Jamaica vacay skin lol.  Thank goodness for my Graftobian warm #2 5 pan palette.  It allowed me to have darker colors in my range so that I can easily match my new skintone.  I used to rock Desert Sand, now I'm in between Golden Sunset and Deep Xanthe.  It's super convenient because I use Buttermilk as my highlight and Mid. Marigold as my contour.  I totally recommend everyone pick up a 5 pan in their color range - makes foundation through the year effortless.
The key is to applying bronzer!  That way my skin has a healthy glow.  I used the Senna Cosmetics Brilliant Bronze bronzer along with MAC's blunt blush.
For my eyes, I began playing with the new Inglot eyeshadows that I picked up at The New York Makeup Show.  This is a peachy bronzey eye with a bold lash.  I wanted a more neutral eye since I went for a bright lip.

On my lips, I first applied a purply lipstick - Milani Vegas Volt all over.  Then I applied a hot pink just to the center - the famous Milani Rose Hip.  I love the combo together.
I hope you all enjoyed!  Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
