Playing Dress up

If you recall, last week I attended a little event for Radiant Cosmetics, a fabulous local company dedicated to ending the fight against human trafficking. Well, this week I decided to play dress up with some of my new Radiant products!  I felt sort of like a little girl who’d gotten into her mother’s makeup… it was fun. I’m not used to seeing myself in bold pink lipstick (or bold red gloss, for that matter), but I was actually feeling it. I think these two lipcolors might be my new favorites!  The pink was creamy and wonderful, and the red gloss (called “Rue,” which makes me think of Hunger Games,) smells good enough to eat. I also tried out a pretty mauve-ish eye shadow and a peachy blush… winners, all around!  Here are a few photos of all the shenanigans, with links to the products I used below.

Happy Wednesday!

  12. Well, they both look amazing on you of course, but I love the peony. Pretty and girly. I love that you let your full hair be full! Mine is a lot like yours and I always try and tame it. Every time I read your blog I think that I should embrace the volume. ;)

  13. I think you can pull off bold lip color really well! You should wear it more often- not too many people look good in such fun colors!

  32. I am just in LOVE with the 'mood' you captured in these photos. It feels like a warm fireplace while it is raining outside. Random comment I know but I just love what you captured there. :D

  33. I really love the peony! I've just started trying out lipsticks and they just make me feel more "womanly" (and I still consider myself a girl). I'd like to try the peony out!

  34. You look SO pretty and I love that shade (Rue) - mostly because IT DOES remind me of The Hunger Games, haha!
