Haven't done a FOTD for a while. I purchased the Stila Haute in The Hamptons Beach Palette on Ebay for about $17.00 USD. The reason why I was so drawn to this pallete is because Rouge Deluxe, She did a look using this palette and it looked amazing.

This is what the cover looks like. very holiday summer feel. Wish summer was here quicker.
This is what it looks like inside, it has a mirror, instructions as to how to use the colours. Contains 4 shadow colours, 1 blush and 1 bronzer/contour colour. though I find both colours can be used as blush. because the bronzer colour isn't dark/brown enough.
Here's a closer look for the instructions.
Here's what the back looks like, has the name to all the shades.
So the lightested is called SAND, the golden colour is called Linen. The dark brown is called Route 27, and the blue is called Blue Skies. it is a Beautiful muted Blue colour.
All these colours has a slight sheen to them, not sparkly, which I REALLY LIKE...
The top blush colour is Hydrangea, the bottom is called Montauk Highway.
here's a picture of swatch on my hand under natural lighting. no FLASH. the colours stay pretty true to real life.
Here's a list of items I used for this FOTD:
- Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation
- Cezanne pink case powder foundation to set the foundation
- Lavschuca eye brow set
- Canmake brow mascara in 03
- Revlon colorburst in Mauve for lips
- Maquillage eyelash curler
- kiss me heroine mascara (volume & curl)
I used the Hydrangea colour from the Stila palette as blush. looks very similar to Mac's Fluer Power which I've been using nearly every day since I got it.
For eyes, I didn't exactly follow the instructions:
- Use Sand all over the lid as a base
- Use Linen over eye lid to give that bit more golden colour
- Use Route 27 within the crease across the eyelid
- Use Blue skies in the outter corner give that extra bit pop of colour.
I tried using the blue skies under the eyes, find it a bit too dark. I was going for a more natural look. may be next look should be a more heavier eye look with eyeliners as well.
This is what it looks like with eyes open
Hope you can see the colours from this picture above.
The blush colour looks quite natural.
And this is final look and hope you all like it.
Hope every one have a great weekend...
