Peachy Gold

07 July, 2015


Today's look is nothing but a compilation of several products that I don't use very often and just played around with until something came up. There is a lot of highlighting action, something we've started to see around lately called "strobing", although I semi-contoured with bronzer. The eye makeup turned out into an elegant golden/brown look, great for a night out. 

El look de hoy no es nada más que una compilación de varios productos que no uso muy seguido y sólo jugué con ellos hasta que algo salió. Hay mucha acción en el iluminado, algo que hemos comenzado a ver mucho por ahí últimamente llamado "strobing", aunque yo semi esculpí mi rostro con bronceador. El maquillaje de ojos resultó como un look elegante en tonos dorados y cafés, ideal para la noche.





I'm going to be honest and say I'm not a big fan of an excessively highlighted complexion. I find that it exaggerates my imperfections and makes me feel greasy even though my skin is mostly dry. However, the intense highlighting of the cupid's bow, bridge of the nose, and inner corners is something I really love for a night look. I kept the eyes bold with neutral colors and matched the rest of my makeup with warm tones as well, tying everything together in a glowy way. 

Voy a ser honesta y diré que no soy muy fanática de la complexión excesivamente iluminada. Pienso que exagera mis imperfecciones y me hace sentir grasos a pesar de que mi piel es más seca. De cualquier modo, el iluminado intenso en el corazón de la boca, el puente de la nariz y los lagrimales es algo que me gusta mucho para un look de noche. Mantuve los ojos intensos con colores neutrales y los combiné con el resto del maquillaje con tonos cálidos, enlazando todo en una forma brillante.

Would have been better to use only one palette, not very practical to crack out 3 different ones! :)

Hubiera sido mejor usar sólo una paleta, ¡no es muy práctico sacar 3 diferentes! :)
