88 Palette and Lavendar Whip for My Sister's Bday



My sister, Jess, celebrated her bday last weekend with her best friend. While it was a celebration for them, it was an all out bash for all the Pisces we knew. My older sister, Toni is a Pisces, as well as a few of my cousins. Go Pisces!

For this occasion, I wanted to use my highly coveted Lavender Whip lipstick and I finally broke out my 88 palette. I got back when the rave over the Coastal Scents 88 palette went into over drive. I caught it on the second wave. It has sat and collected dust, until now. Thanks to Yannize for pushing it on me!

I used four colors from the palette: a pink on the first half of the lid, the sky blue on the second half, a light color for the highlight and a dark blue (similar to MAC's Plumage) in the outer v and blended into the crease. Lavender Whip looks amazing (to me at least) in these pics, but it was much milder and not as opaque in real life.

Other makeup (all MAC unless stated otherwise):
EYES (Continued)- UDPP, HiP paint in Lofty, Blue Pop liner on waterline(Blue Pop/Black Funk duo liner, Heatherette Collection), Maybelline waterproof liquid liner black on top lid, pink e/s on inner lower lid and blue e/s on outer bottom lid, DermaBlend concealer in Tan, Bobbi Brown yellow setting powder, Red Cherry lashes
FACE- DermaBlend Cover Creme SPF 30 foundation in Chroma 3 Honey Beige, white translucent DermaBlend setting powder
CHEEKS- Flirt & Tease (my new default blush taking the place of Harmony blush)
LIPS- Lavender Whip cremesheen lipstick


And China Glaze's Spontaneous on the nails and toes!

this is gorgeous!! WOW!

BeautyBySkye said...

This is definitely a hot girls go out look! I was persuaded by a Mac MA not to try Lavender Whip (I'm a NC44/45), but I'm tempted now to try it because you rock it soo well. I have a 4 Coastal Scents palettes that are collecting dust. Your review of them is very accurate. Some colors are great, some are chalky, some don't have any color payoff...that's why I stopped using my palette, but you've inspired me to pull out my palettes again and play around until I find some combinations that work for me. :)

Ingrid said...

I love, love, love this look. You are totally rockin' it. I'm stealing it from you. I'm going to try this look tomorrow.
