Rosy Peachy Makeup: Using Darling Girl Cosmetics

Inspiration for Look, via Google

Hi there!

Darling Girl Cosmetics posted a bit ago on their Facebook page offering a FREE eyeshadow if you posted a look.  Out of nowhere I racked up an order full of racey names- completely on accident.  However, the owner Susan had a hilarious response to my rather risque pickings.

When the order arrived I had no idea that all of the shade names were super adult- it looked like I was on some kind of mission to be pervy.  Eyeshadows like Electric Sex, Inferno Room,  and Sex on Fire! Ha ha! Susan wrote at the bottom of my receipt  that it looks like I had an 'exciting' day of makeup planned! Best part is, I had no clue.  It just ended up that way.

I chose these fun colors to create a look for the Facebook contest.  I was inspired by blowsy roses, almost too full in bloom and soft luscious peaches.  I love the idea of florals and fruit and the header painting above summed up the color range I was going for.

Here's how it turned out-

Susan graciously gave me a code for a full size shadow and I picked F* Bomb- a green gold color shifter that I want to use as a shadow dupe to my beloved MAC pearlglide in the shade Undercurrent.

So much for not picking racey items!  But the truth is, I love the kitsch and hope my kids don't get embarrassed their ol' Mom is using makeup called names like this.  So nothing much more to report right now other than I wanted to share this look.  Hope wherever you are, you have a lovely weekend.
