I've been doing a "shop my stash" type of thingy lately (y'know, where you go through your collection and find something you haven't worn in a while and make it a point to use it). One of the things I put in my "use this product" basket is Milani's Baked Blush in Luminoso. Nikki from Nikki Tutorials has been raving about and using this blush a lot in her videos lately, and it made me want to pull it out, which then gave me the idea to "shop my stash."

Luminoso is a very pretty shimmery peach. I usually reach for Milani Baked Blush in Corallina, which is more coral and more sparkly, over Luminoso for some reason. Using Luminoso the past few days has made me realize I need to use it more often!
I paired my Luminoso-graced cheeks with some lavender and plum shadows from the Sephora Moonshadow Trio in Dusk Till Dawn (no longer available).
These swatch pretty poorly and sheerly, but they perform better on the eyelid, especially when paired with a primer or base. They also perform better when used wet, but I used them dry this time.
I picked peaches for the lips to compliment the cheeks. Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Queen Quartz, and Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick in Juicy Peach fit the bill nicely.
I love the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Sticks. They smell awesome (citrus fruity), are hydrating, and kind of glossy.

Here's how the look turned out:
I think purple shades on the eyes with peach cheeks and lips always looks lovely.
How do you feel about purple and peach?
