Family Heirloom ღ

Hiya! So a couple of nights ago, me & my chicaa Nessa were sharing ideas for room decor on Fb. Haa. She's planning on getting an antique-style vanity for her room! So I was searching for pictures of vanities & other oldy stuff. I kept coming across this turquoise color that was almost always paired with brass or an old gold color. It's so beautiful & wanted to do a look based off it. I named it "Family Heirloom" which my bf loved! lol

• Eyes
MAC Butterfly Party Pigments (Raindrop) • Urban Decay Naked Palette (1)
I vowed I would set this pigment aside for its own post & I delivered! This is Raindrop from the MAC Vera Collection. This color's like a green-turquoise color. It has a definite blue, kind of sheen to it but is clearly more on the green side. Hooray for getting over my green shadow phobia lol! I also love how shimmery the color is. It has a hint of gold undertones, which looks just awesome in the sunlight. I used the Naked palette to lighten, darken, & blend out the look. I used the lightest, matte color in the WnW Greed palette [not pictured] as highlight under the brows.

• Lips
MAC Enchantee Lipcolor
For light pink lips I used this cool pink color. It's really smooth without being goopy or super shiny like a lipgloss.

• Cheeks
Charlotte Ronson 3x a charm
I rarely contour, wear blush, or highlight anymore, much less all at once. But recently, my friend Lori gave me this wonderful little number. [Thank you, Lori!] It comes with a very sheer luminizer, a pretty coral-pink blush, & a bronzer. All three are shimmery, the luminizer more than the other two. They're all powders & because they look so pretty, I've found countouring & blush really easy to incorporate into my daily routine again lol.


• Nails : Antiqued Gold
L.A. Colors Sea Siren • Sally Hansen Antiqued Gold Crackle
I'll be honest! This mani only lasted on my nails long enough to snap pictures lol. I hate this gold crackle nail polish but it's the only gold polish I have & wanted to do something related to the theme. The color underneath is awesome though! I used it by itself in this post.

 A big thank you for reading! I appreciate your love, always.
Have an great weekend, everyone! xOxO
