Windy Weather Blues

30 Apr

This post may be lacking in pictures, but I hope I make up for it in the details. I was in such a hurry that I couldn’t take as many pictures as I wanted & the shimmer of the silvery blues made it nearly impossible to photograph them accurately. This look, as a result of my rush, is also extremely quick to complete. Hope you enjoy nonetheless!

Brushes you’ll need:

– MAC #’s 214 (short shader brush), 222 (tapered blending brush), 242 (shader brush), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you’ll need:
