Weekend EOTD - BH Cosmetics 120 1st Edition Palette YGBV

I haven't done an EOTD in a while, even though I had promised to do it at least three times a week. Oops!

I had been traveling this weekend, since I had a very special Birthday Party to attend for my 3 year old Goddaughter. While the ride was long, I at least made sure I had some fabulous makeup on. Indeed, I slept for the ride, but it was needed... The party was a blast, and then we had gone out for dinner with some close friends to celebrate my impending birthday. (which has now passed!)

I only changed my outfit, because I loved the colors on my eyes too much to re-do them. So on went a pretty black peasant shirt with a pair of khakis and my sexy sneakers. Ok, the sneaks aren't sexy... They're comfortable. I still can't wear heels, unless I want to fall down of course. And no... No more of that.

Basically for this look, I chose 6 different colors from the palette:

A medium-yellow which was applied to the inner 1/3 of my lid, and just above the crease.
A bright green which was applied to the middle part of my lid.
A medium-blue applied to the outer 1/3 of my lid.
A bright purple applied to the outer "V" of my eye, and blended into half of my crease.
A light sky-blue applied to just above the purple, and blended lightly to the inner corner of my eye.
And a cream highlight color applied to my brow bone.
I also forgot to mention on my lower lid, I took a medium pink and swiped it on the middle of my lower lid, and swiped the same purple I used on the outer "V" of my eye to the outside 1/3. Blending them together created a really pretty color under there!

For my face, I used my usual Physicians Formula: Organics Mineral War Foundation in Translucent fair. On my cheeks, I had a random blush peachy blush I had used, I think it was also from Physicians Formula- one of their illuminating blushers. It was just sparkly enough to highlight my cheeks without making me look oily.
Once my eyes were done, I put on a swipe of my Wet 'n Wild MegaPlump mascara. A swipe of shimmery lip gloss was the finishing touch- and this was my look for the evening!

There are 120 colors in this particular palette...I think I can come up with a few more looks... Right?!
