Gold, Green, Turquoise & Blue look with 88 Shimmer Palette

Hey everyone! Sorry I have been absent. I was gone over the weekend camping again. I have some fun pictures and a video from the trip. But that will be posted at a later time. :-)  Oh, and I have a mean bug bite on my neck looks like a hickey but I swear it's not! It's several days old and still feels awful. So I didn't wear a necklace as I didn't want to irritate it even more. I made zee earrings though.

I decided to play with my shimmer palette because I really like it but often forget about it. I really like it because you can layer and layer the colours. That's not always so easy with mineral shadows.
To show you what was used, I'm just going to add a picture of the palette and list which ones from what rows at the bottom (starting from left to right, then down).

I used these:
#1. Row 1, Down 2
#2. Row 3, Down 2
#3. Row 4, Down 3
#4. Row 4, Down 8
#5. Row 6, Down 5
#6. Row 6, Down 7

Eyes (all applied in this order):
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Detrivore Eye Primer (applied all around the eye, rubbing in gently with ring finger)
88 shimmer - #4 (applied to outer V, crease and outer half of  upper lid with MAC 239 by patting/sweeping) 
88 shimmer - #6 (applied to outer crease with MAC 239 by patting/sweeping)
88 shimmer - #5 (applied to inner half of lower lash line with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping)
88 shimmer - #3 (applied to inner half of upper lid with MAC 239 by patting/sweeping) 
88 shimmer - #2 (applied to inner V with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping)
88 shimmer - #1 (applied under brow with MAC 217 by patting/sweeping)
Kryolan Aqua color Liner - black (applied wet with water, using MAC 210 on upper lash line and extending out)
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Deviant (applied to outer half of lower lash line extending outward along with black liner)
NYX Jumbo Pencil in White (applied to water line with MAC 210)

Ardell 118 lashes

Lips: My Stuff (some lipgloss I made with glitter!)

Face: Skin MD Shielding lotion
AL Viole' Foundation Powder in 2CL (applied with Jumbo buffer brush)
Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 Powder in Translucent Light (applied using AL flocked sponge by patting then blending) 
AL You're a Doll! Finishing Powder in Parfait  (applied with Jumbo Flat Top brush)
AL You're a Doll! Gothic Lolita Rouge in Dolly (applied to cheeks with a small blush brush)

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I will have to play catch on your blogs this week. :-)
