I don't own the Edward Bess Bronzer in Daydream or RBR Murmurings sheer lipstick so my substitutions were the Le Metier de Beaute Blonzer and Laura Mercier Lip Stain in Hibiscus topped with BECCA Lip Plumping gloss.
As my base I'm wearing Ellis Faas Skin Veil in S102 and the matching concealer in S202. Around my nose and on blemishes I used BECCA concealer in Praline. I only had a small sample of the Ellis Faas and when I initially put it on I wasn't sure about the colour match but looking at the pictures I really like how it looks.
I applied as Nina described. RBR Atlas Swallowtail cream eyeshadow over the mobile lid and the taupe from Le Metier de Beaute Le Cirque Kaleidescope applied over the cream. I lined with Guerlain loose kohl in Oriental Metal and blended RBR Delicata over the top using a MAC 224. I think as my lashes lack oomph I would have benefited from tightlining with a darker brown or black to give more definition.
I used the Le Metier Blonzer all over the cheeks lightly and applied RBR Delicata to the apples of my cheeks. Of course, I wonder whether the EB Bronzer might look better colourwise with the rest of the shades. I didn't check the colour of Murmuring until afterwards (it's a beautiful sheer damson) but I was in the mood to wear the Laura Mercier Hibiscus lip stain for a splash of colour. The BECCA plumping gloss gives a nice sheen and has moisturising ingredients to counter any drying from the lip stain. Fortunately the Laura Mercier formula isn't too bad in that respect though it does seem to need reapplying during the day.
Overall I'm pleased with how it turned out but I'm a little unhappy with how far I took colour in towards the bridge of my nose. Next time I will add more definition under the lashes with black or brown liner and use a more volumising mascara. I may have a go adding switching to Bonheur on the lips as I imagine that would be more similar Murmurings too.
Where do you get inspiration for your looks? Do you ever try things you've seen on magazines, blogs or YouTube? Or are you the sort of person that other's copy?
