GRWM: Pantone Radiant Orchid Color of the Year

I started by prepping my eyes with my Boots no7 Beautifully Matte just on my lids. Then an added primer specific to eyes and because I want the bright colors to really *pop* I used the NYX eyeshadow base in white.

I decided to use Urban Decay’s Fishnet in the crease as my transition color. This is a great Orchid color and I love Urban Decay shadows as they are so pigmented and creamy.

Next on my lids I used Princess Aurora from Chequered Lily on Etsy. This shade being a great less expensive dupe of fishnet. Really I couldn’t find much difference on my lids. Any difference is the loose pigment has fine blue glitter instead of being more of a duochrome creamy texture like the UD. Money wise though I would have went with the Chequered Lily.

In the same UD palette is Zero which I used in the crease and blended out. I also did my waterline with my tried and true L’oreal Smoldering liner. I used my eco tools brush to blend and the Kiehls eye cream to clean up the fall out. And to clean up around my nose area as I went a little crazy on the blending lol010214 013

I also used my Lorac Pro in cream for the brow bone and around the tear duct area.

And there is the eyes for the Radiant orchid Pantone color basics. To complete the look I started on the overall face. First I prepped with some green primer for my redness and Porefessional for my pores. I tap this into my skin

Can you tell a difference?

Next under eye concealer. I am really loving this Revlon that I got for 75% at CVS. And I used Silk Naturals foundation I made up(review coming soon)

Then the finish touches on the eyes and brows as well as lips, highlight, and bronzer.
