    Hey Erica,
    This look is gorg!!
    I love two in one products for the summer cause I travel a lot. I have been using the MAC cheek and lip pot, Keep It Casual (pinky/coral color), LORAC baked bronzer to highlight and for eyeshadow, and I also use MAC Glorify for highlight and eyeshadow. My fave summer blushes are La Femme coral for night and NARS Dolce Vita for day. For lips I have been doing more of a nude lip, NYX cocoa lip liner and MAC spice lipglass and if I want to get fancy, I’ll use MAC up the amp with Nightmoth lip liner 🙂

Great look gorgeous!!!!!!!!!Peace and Blessings

      Thx so much girl. Darkhorse is in the Naked Palette which is an awesome palette to have in your collection!

    The Cargo eye bronzer looks interesting. I love how the two shades of bronzers look on you…glowy and nice!

      Thank you. I’m not wearing the bronzer in Glow in this post though, just Holden with MAC Format blush.

    I think I am going to try a dupe pallet ( from NYX) of the naked.. That Naked pallet is too exspensive for me.. The NYX pallet seems to have alot of the same colors compared to both series of Naked pallets and NYX eyeshadows are just as pigment. The pallete is called nude on nude

      That’ll work. I know exactly what palette you’re talking about. Make sure to pick up some complimentary NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencils to use with it 😉
