Look: Jeweled Heroine

The other day I read a post by Baroque in Babylon (a fabulous blog, go follow her!) about Darling Girl's blushes; she highlighted some of her favorites, including Boy Crazy, an awesome "earthy mauve" colored blush. I had purchased a sample of Boy Crazy back when it was new but hadn't used it in a while, so reading this post reminded me that I needed to wear it again!

I built this look around Boy Crazy, using it on my face as both a cheek color/contour and an all-over bronzer to play up the neutral eyes and bright purple lips. Read on for the details!
 My camera broke after taking the full-face shots, so I had to use a different one for the eye close-ups. I think they turned out okay, though they don't even remotely show how gorgeous Jeweled Taupe is in person.
Products:
Face/Cheeks:
-Reviva Labs primer
-Cover Girl 3-in-1 foundation in Ivory (trying this out)
-Wet N' Wild Coverall powder (lightest shade)
-unreleased contour powder from Darling Girl Cosmetics to contour cheekbones
-Darling Girl Cosmetics blushes in The Magic Lamp (just on apples of cheeks) and Boy Crazy (on cheekbones and all around face as sculptor/bronzer)
-Darling Girl eyeshadow in Adoration as highlight
Eyes:
-*Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper
-Milani Shadow Eyez pencil in Almond Cream (all over lid as base)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue on lids
-Darling Girl eyeshadow in Jeweled Taupe on lids
-Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, Faint (used to fill in entire crease area), Crave (on outer corner and used as eyeliner), and Venus (final highlight on browbone/tearduct)
-Darling Girl eyeshadow in Hidden Garden (from crease to browbone)
 -Darling Girl eyeshadow in Adoration on browbone/tearduct
-*brown gel eyeliner (tightline)
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
Brows:
-theBalm eyeshadow in Presto (dark brown)
-Urban Decay eyeshadow in Naked2 (light taupe)
Lips:
-MAC lip pencil in Heroine
-MAC lipstick in Heroine
-Maybelline lip gloss in Mirrored Plum (limited edition but available here)

I've been looking for an excuse to wear my Heroine products, lol. I think they went perfectly with this neutral look.
I'm so sad I couldn't capture the epic beauty of Jeweled Taupe; the camera didn't even pick up the gorgeous pink sparkles. I'm in love with this shade and I'm sure anyone who tries it will love it too. Don't take my word for it though, just GET IT! ;)

Hope you enjoyed this, thanks for reading!♥
