Black, Blue, and Orange look

Monday is almost done here and the sun is going down and I love the golden haze of sunset.  I picked up Milani's 3D Glitzy Gloss in Stylish (glimmery orange and gold gloss) at super fabulous *enter sarcasm* Kmart today!  Along with a small container of Krispy Kreme blueberry doughnut holes, but we won't go there.  I was struck with the idea to have a black vinyl lip with that killer orange gloss.  The eyes followed the lip idea and here's how it turned out:

Here's what I used for this look:

Ben Nye colour cake foundation in Bisque, applied dry with a Chanel kabuki brush
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light, same brush, just to smooth out the whiteness of the Ben Nye cake

Sleek Original Palette, bottom row left three eyeshadows blended with ELF Studio complexion brush as blush :)

BeneFit Bad Gal liner as lipstick
Milani 3D Glitzy Gloss in Stylish on top

Sleek Original palette bright blue color on lower lashline and outer 3/4 of lid with ELF Studio contouring shadow brush
Sleek Original palette bright purple color on center of upper lid above crease and blended with blue, same brush as above
Sleek Acid palette black color blended and angled onto outer portion of upper lid above crease with ELF Studio small shader brush
MAC Carbon wetlined and winged on upper lashline
Sleek Acid palette bright orange color winged with Loew-Cornell long shader brush at inner portion of eye and above wing of liner on upper lid
Sleek Original palette bottom row, second and third colors (golden ivory and peach) blended and patted on center of lid for shimmer with ELF Studio contouring shadow brush
Brows are BeneFit Bad Gal liner smoothed with ELF Studio small shader brush
Nyx jumbo pencil in Milk on waterline, blended
Mascara is Cover Girl lash blast in Black on my lash extensions, etc

Lotion of the Day:  Fergie Outrageous lotion
Polish of the Day:  El Crappo worn out manicure of Orly I'm fixing tomorrow :)  Viridian Vinyl and Green Apple :)  Redoing toes as well in ORANGE manana!
Perfume of the Day:  Fergie Outrageous
CD of the Day:  Christina Aguilera greatest hits- c'mon you all sing Fighter, you know it!

Love the black vinyl lips! The placement of the orange eyeshadow is so interesting and beautiful! The whole look is awesome!

Seriously, I can't articulate how gorgeous you are with the black lips! And it works so well with the little pops of orange and blue on the eyes :)
