Long time, no see FOTD: Naked Cosmetics

At the Makeup Show NYC, I picked up a Naked Cosmetics loose eyeshadow.. a pretty shimmering turquoise. I decided to put it to use recently to attend my cousin's graduation.


I don't remember the deets on what I used as I was in a rush, but the main items used were:
Naked Cosmetics loose eyeshadow pigments (should have used it foiled!)
NYX lashes
MAC's Naked Frost (LE) lipglass

I did this look in a rush. I usually defer to my old neutral colors when I'm in a rush, but I wanted to be summery and colorful. Naked Cosmetics suited the bill esp. since I've been wanting to use the shadow I got.

Extra: I can wear my hat still! Shocked! It saved the day when I didn't have a fresh retwist. It's an old cap I got from the men's section of H&M for big heads with an elastic hat/sweatband. Please excuse the ungodly eyebrows!
How have you all been? Have you tried Naked Cosmetics? Is there a particular shadow or color you've had to make a point of using because you've wanted to, but just haven't?

Didn't see a rush job on shadow or brows! By the way, have you ever tried or reviewed Benefit's Brow Zings? Yours are so beautiful I just wondered if you had tried them.
So glad to see the FOTD again. How are yor locks doing?
