Hiya, ladies! So, my BFF’s wedding is this coming Saturday, and I have yet to figure out what makeup to wear with my bridesmaids dress. I leave for Florida on Thursday. It’s coming down to the wire, yikes!
I heart this palette so verrry much! It comes with five lipsticks, five eyeshadows, two mini-brushes and a kohl liner.
All of these colors are highly wearable, with just enough pizazz for either day or night smokey eye looks.
- Black Violet Kohl Eye Pencil: matte dark purple-black
- Morning Dew Eyeshadow: matte pinkish beige
- Rose Eyeshadow: shimmery pinkish gold
- Fresco Eyeshadow: matte peachy pink
- Chocolate Eyeshadow: matte dark brown
- Twilight Grey Eyeshadow: matte blue-purple grey
- Tea Rose Lipstick: creamy nude pink
- Pink Champagne Lipstick: creamy cool rose
- Cinnamon Lipstick: creamy warm brown
- Amaretto Lipstick: shimmery mauve pink-bronze
- Garnet Lipstick: creamy purple-red

I used Morning Dew on the brow bone, Rose in the crease, Twilight Grey on the lid and Chocolate on the lower lash line. To draw out the eyes, I added POP Beauty Cat Eyes liner in Black Onyx on the upper lash line and *three* coats of MAC Dazzle Lash mascara in Black Dazzle.
To complete the look, I applied two layers of Amaretto lipstick on the lips and swept MAC Beauty Powder Blush in Shy Beauty on the cheeks.
I’m diggin’ this look, but after seeing it in pictures I think it’s more like something I’d wear to a job interview than a wedding. I’m starting to rethink the whole wedding smokey eyes thing because I know I’m probably going to cry. The last thing I want is purple eyeshadow running down my cheeks.
Now that you’ve seen the dress, do you have any ideas for my makeup? Should I go with this look? What do you think of the lipstick? Different shade? Am I on the right track, or should I start from scratch? If I don’t figure this out soon I just might show up to the wedding with a box on my head!
