Gold Eyeshadow with Royal Blue Liner

My dear friend Toni gave me samples of several eyeshadows from Altered Ego Cosmetics and one from a brand new mineral makeup company called Sugar Skull Minerals. I wanted to create a look using some of the samples I was sent, and this is what I came up with.

I really like the sample from Sugar Skull Minerals. The eyeshadow applied smoothly, evenly, and was easy to work with. I'd like to try more of their eyeshadows now!

Today was hot and humid, and by the time I took this full-face photo, I'd been out-and-about for several hours, and sweated most of my makeup off and my hair was back in a ponytail because of the heat. I'll be happy when Autumn rolls around and this heat is gone!
