Face of the Day with the Tamanna Palette

Hey guys!  I'm kind of inconsistent with the blogging thing lately, huh?  I've got posts written in my head, and was hoping to write a bunch (and post them) this week, but I've been a dealing with a bit of vertigo, which is a weird thing.  It makes it hard to do much of anything, being so dizzy and wonderfully nauseous, but it seems especially hard to read and look at a computer screen.  I'm feeling a bit better, so I'm attempting to do some stuff on the laptop.

Anyhow, this is a look I did last week that I figured I'd share with you because why not?  I was inspired by the March favorites of El over at The Beauty Isle to pull out my Anastasia Beverly Hills Tammana Palette.

Eyes: from the Anastasia Beverly Hill Tamanna Palette
             --- Venezia (shimmery light aqua) all over the moving lid
             --- Gilded (shimmery browny bronze) in the crease and lower lash line
             --- China Rose (peach with gold shimmer) above Gilded
             --- Fresh (matte ivory) under the brow and in the inner corner
             --- Chocolate (matte dark brown) as liner on the upper lash line

          It Cosmetics No Tug Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Brown/Black on the waterlines
          Mally Voluminizing Mascara

Cheeks: Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer as contour under the cheekbones
              Clinique Cheek Pop/Blush Pop in Ginger Pop
              Physicians Formula Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent Pearl to highlight

Lips: ColourPop Lippie Pencil in Fancy
         Too Faced Melted Metals Liquified Metallic Lipstick in Melted Metallic Peony

I just realized I neglected to swatch the shade "Chocolate" from the palette (the color I used as liner).  Dangit.

Hey, whaddya know.  There's a sleeping Emma on the bed behind me.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday and have something awesome planned for the weekend!  My husband and I will be watching the WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view on Sunday.  And Game of Thrones, natch.


  1. Ooh, I love that combination of shadow shades- you've blended them beautifully! xo

  2. Your makeup is always perfection! Lovely look!

  3. I hope you're feeling better now. It's amazing how quickly life can get in the way of blogging. I, too, have all of these ideas, and most of them never make it into my blog. There's just not enough time.

    You look gorgeous, as always. I love the colors on your eyes so much. But then again, you have such gorgeous eyes, you can wear anything and rock it!

  4. Gorgeous as always! I hope you start feeling better soon. Sending virtual hugs your way!

  5. Gorgeous! I love the Too Faced lipstick and the effect of the metallic finish.

  6. Wouldn't it be fun if blogging could take precedence over crummy life stuff?
    P.S. I usually do my best blog writing when I'm trying to fall asleep.
    P.P.S. Thank you for the compliment!

  7. Thank you so much, Chelsea! Your hugs must have helped because I'm feeling waaaay better!

  8. I liked the metallic-ness of Melted Metallic Peony so much that I bought Melted Metallic Bunny (the cool-toned pink one). Thank you, Lauren!
