Everyday Minerals continued

Well, got my full size Everyday Minerals today. Actually, it was on the dining room table when I got in from class, so before I put away groceries (Mother Hubbard's cupboard was BARE!) or changed out of my dance clothes, I had to try them. ;)

Love the Chamomile shadow--it is really versatile. Dust it on for light effect, or swipe it on with a fingertip for more drama. Pretty creamy golden color. I predict I will use it a LOT.

Mystic Night...the dark purple...it is also lovely, but I think I will blend it with maybe the Chamomile or something else to get a lighter effect. As it is, it looks really lovely, shimmery purple up close, but just dark from a distance. I hope to pop more of the purple through blending. I do have it blending in with the Comfy, which I put on a little dark tonight as a test for class, so that could be affecting it somewhat, but I suspect blending will be require regardless.

And the Weekend Getaway blush is just what I hoped it would be! Just enough peachiness to it, without screaming PEACH/PINK, which I don't like; and it is also a bit mauvey-brown to add a little warmth. Yum.


Tonight I did the full spread on the makeup to show Lauren and Celise, and then the snow kept everyone away. *sigh* I did it with my foundation primer this time (but still no shadow primer), and one more pass with the foundation to get the coverage I wanted. Then a spritz of lavender water to set. Looked really nice. As I said above, I put some Comfy on the lids, with a bit of one of my fave colors from Aromaleigh dusted on the brow bone. Looked natural and put together without looking like I was "all made up" for class. No class next week (darn MLK holiday closing the building!), so it will be another week before I can show it off! :(

RE: Snow Night: I had 8 students in each class, which is good enough for me. We got to work on quads and leader changes, as well as Double Egyptian and SHOULDER SHIMMIES! Yes, we WILL master those shimmies, dammit! :) The new class format in Level 1 is tricky still. I feel there is just TOO MUCH information for one six week session, and paring it back accordingly will take time. I don't want to overload Level 2, which already has too much to cram into 12 weeks of classes!

I need more levels. LOL

Hope everyone is home warm and safe tonight!
