I've always maintained that you shouldn't subscribe to saying you are only a warm or a cool or worse, a season. It's fine if you want to use those as a guideline to help you make decisions, but don't be afraid to break those rules, especially if you feel like you are stuck in a style rut. Anyone can wear anything. It's all about how you do it and how strong you make the colors.
I skipped my usual peachy tones and opted for a cooler look, using the potentially universally flattering Black Honey color from Clinique. In the picture below, it looks slightly warmer than it actually is. It's definitely more in a neutral to cool tone.
On my eyes, I used Bare Escentuals High Shine Eyecolor in Moonshine and Flash. I lined my eyes with Stila's Smudge Stick Waterproof Liner in Purple Tang. On my cheeks is the new Black Honey Gradient Blush. On my lips is Black Honey Superbalm Moisturizing Lip Gloss.
I am really in love with this Black Honey Gradient Blush. If you are careful how you hold the brush, you can apply contour, highlight and color in one stroke - for real!
Do you switch up your colors or are you stuck in a rut?
Some makeup was sent for review. I bought most of it. Bare Escentuals, Clinique and Stila do not test on animals.
