I read a French blog few days ago with plenty pics of a trip to Polynesia. It made me dream about sun, sandbeach and turquoise sea. As I can not afford this kind of journey right now, I first thought about putting my orchids collection in my bathroom with a water noise soundtracks and pouring some light blue ink in my bathtub. But the cleaning afterwards made me change my mind. So I ended up doing a Polynesia-inspired make up which I hope you will like.

For the eyes:
The pics do not do any justice to the brightness of this look. But do not panic it remains wearable! For once, I did swatch in daylight on my inner arm so you can have a better idea of the colours (no flash)
Both the UD shadows are used as liner (outer and inner) and the two other shadows I hope it is clear on the pics :p. I also dotted some sparkles in my inner tear duct with the glitter liner I swatched above.

Time for full face pics, hope you like my fancy dress ^^:

For the base: camouflage cream palette MUFE + Unifiance Skin like foundation 01 from La Roche Posay (discontinued) with a single drop of Lustre Sun Rush from MAC (limited edition) + Météorites powder for the face 01 from Guerlain .
For the dark circles : Select Cover up from MAC NW 20 + Powderflage from Benefit
For the cheeks : Fresh bloom allover colour Almond Blossom 03 from Clinique
(hollow) +
+ Embelliseur Abricot from Agnes B (on the apples) + Mineralize Skinfinish Soft and Gentle from MAC (limited edition, highlight)
For the lips : random lipbalm

So what you think about my holiday beach-like look?

Sorry for the zit on my forehead but mosquitos are back in Paris and I can not stop scratching bites to blood :((

See ya :)
