FOTD: Subtle Summer Aqua

Hi Nesters! I realized after going back through some of my posts that its been quite a while since I've posted a face of the day look. So here's the look I did today. I hope you like it or at least find some inspiration in it to do a summery look of your own.

Color Descriptions:
  • Gilt - A soft, sparkling pale gold frost.
  • Isadora - Rich blue-green tones with clear micro-fine shimmer.
  • Teddy Wisp - A precious mid-toned cocoa shade with soft smoke tones and sparks of copper and rose.
  • Sunny Disposition - Buttercream yellow with a plush pearl finish.
  • Drama Queen Teal - Truly balanced gem of rare beauty. Not too green, not to blue, the perfect smoked teal with a hint of satin sheen sparked with flashes of bright teal shine and glitz.
  • Cashmere - a soft matte pink tea rose with a touch of glow


  • Aromaleigh shadow base & primer mixed with Bare Necessity creme shadow - all over
  • Gilt - inner 2/3 lid
  • Isadora pure eyes lustre - outer 1/2*
  • Teddy Wisp gothic lolita - crease and just a bit in outer corner for depth
  • Sunny Disposition eye plush - brow bone and to blend out crease
  • Drama Queen Teal drama queen mineral eyeliner - mixed with water and applied to upper lash line
  • Max Factor black waterproof 2000 Calorie mascara - top and bottom lashes
*Layering Isadora slightly over Gilt gave an interesting iridescent effect (was more apparent in person, of course).

Rest of face:
  • 2yl Voile mineral foundation - all over
  • Translucent ultra resolution finishing powder - all over
  • Cashmere pure blush - cheeks
  • Natural NYX lip gloss - lips

*All makeup is Aromaleigh unless otherwise specified

Thanks for checking out my look. As always, your thoughts and comments are appreciated.
