Shaken Not Stirred FOTD

As soon as I got the Bare Minerals The Cocktail Hour palette the shade Shaken Not Stirred has been calling out to me.  As promised, I did a look using it to show you all.  I am very please with the way my first go with the beautiful navy shade turned out.

Please don’t make fun of my hair in the first few shots.  I was about to film a review/tutorial on a hair tool so I did my makeup first and had my hair all pinned up.  I was so excited with how the look turned out I was quick to snap pics and didn’t realize my hair wasn’t done.  :)

Everything I used on my eyes today was brand new to me.  I used a new mascara, eyeliner, and brow pencil.  The eyeshadow itself was one I have never used as well.  Fun times…

Finally I decided to do my hair so this is a shot with my hair done.  It sort of looks black/charcoal grey instead of a deep navy blue in this shot.

Either way, I love this eyeshadow.  It is gorgeous and not at all hard to work with.

Here is a closeup of the eye makeup.  I used Shaken Not Stirred all over the lid and into the crease.  I blended my crease with a light matte brown and highlighted my brow with a matte white.  I highlighted the inner corner with a shimmery champagne color.

My lip choice was a Laura Geller gloss called Skinny Dip.  It is a beautiful color to apply when you go for dramatic eyes.  Just a touch of honey/amber on the lips and slight shimmer.

Hope you liked the look I created.  I don’t typically go bold but decided it was something fun.  I loooooooove Bare Minerals Shaken Not Stirred.  First blue I have ever fallen completely head over heels in love with.  I love blue eyeshadow on others, I just always think it looks sort of crazy on me.  And dark navy shades are especially hard to work with because so many don’t blend very well.  This one is a dream!
What have you done lately that is out of the norm?  Navy blue eyeshadow is definitely mine.  Let me know in the comments below!!!
