88 Palette Monday: Salsa Heat

(with flash)
Today's eye was inspired by the golden bronze and hot pink in the shimmering and matte palettes. I am quite bummed that I couldn't retrieve a great snapshot of the vibrancy of the look, giving no justice to the bright colors. Bummer. However, the look in person is bright and gorgeous! 
(natual light, no flash)

From the 88 shimmer palette (above) I used 1. All over the lid and on the inner lower lashline

Then used the matte palette:
2. is on the outer 'v' and crease blended upward. 2. is also on the outer lower lashline and blended with 1.
3. on only on the outer 'v' and blended a bit on the crease
I used 4. as highlight
No falsies this time, here I used Lancome mascara.

Blending is key with the 2. since this color can travel everywhere! I made sure to wipe my brush often when using this color....

I hope you have enjoyed this look!
