Red, White and Blue...wait where's the white?-fotd

Happy Independence Day fellow Americans! I hope you're enjoying the fireworks.

Excuse the eerie white eyed close lipped smile. I have no idea what I was thinking. Today I used the sample of Illamasqua's new Skin Base Foundation that I won in their giveaway. I'd written that I wanted the white shade by accident instead of the pinky-fair shade. However the white actually worked on my skin and blended in fairly well. If I had wanted the white color of the foundation to actually stick out I would have used a white powder along with it. I'm really surprised at how well it blended into my skin. I look a lot paler but I love the way it looks. I may buy the shade that actually matches my skin tone someday but I'm a little broke right now haha.

What I used:
Illamasqua Skin Base Foundation in O1
Estee Lauder Tender Tone Blush in Rose Petal

Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Hi-Fi cosmetics e/s in Overdose (Perfect blue used on the lid.)
Fyrinnae e/s in La Noche (Deep blue used on the crease.)
Morgana Cryptoria e/s in Zombie Ambrosia (Royal blue/purple used on the upper crease and lower lash line.)
Morgana Cryptoria Mysterious mineral veil (Used to highlight.)
Almay liquid eyeliner in black
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Flipside

Wet n Wild Lip liner in Berry Red
Wet n Wild Lipstick in Dark Wine

I hope you had a safe Fourth and enjoyed your day!

  6. Your skin looks amazing! I have heard so many great things about the Skin Base. Do the ingredients include silicones or is it silicone-free?

  8. Very pretty (and non-cheesy) 4th of July look! And I love how that foundation looks on you - just like perfect porcelain!
