FOTD – Sonia Kashuk’s Flamingo

This blog is no longer in use.  Please head over to my new site:  IamAlisonM.com

I love the spring feeling in Sonia Kashuk’s Flamingo blush, one of the shades from my last post.  The lovely Kristi C. requested a FOTD using it and, lucky for me, it was already in my basket for the week.  I played around with a few different eye and lip shades but decided my favorite way to wear this blush is with cooler tones, a soft eye, and lilac hued lip.  Somehow, I love this look…without bronzer.  I must really love this blush !

Products used (not including face)

My Color Palette

Products Used

Face:  Sonia Kashuk Oil Mattifier; Benefit POREfessional; Palladio primer; Laura Geller the Real Deal Concealer in Medium; Maybelline FitMe Foundation in 220; Sonia Kashuk Loose Powder in Colorless Matte

Cheeks:  Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush in Flamingo

Eyes:  theBalm shadows in Matt Patel, Batali, and Chung; Maybelline Colossal Mascara; Pixi Eye Bright Liner; Sonia Kashuk Arch Alert Kit; e.l.f. Brow Gel

Lips:  theBalm  Auto Balm gloss in Fleeting

It’s a rather simple look, which I like, but I think it needs a bit more definition along my upper lash line.  Other than that, I’m surprised by my complete love for this combination as I’ve been sporting much warmer tones with statement lips lately.

What color family have you been leaning towards?  Any thoughts on the format of this FOTD…do you appreciate the photo of products and swatches or do you prefer to go without?

My windows are open, the breeze is flowing through my curtains, and I’m off to enjoy some edamame shitake cous cous.  Happy Thursday!

  1. Such a lovely look 🙂 The color of the blush translates exactly from your swatch to your cheeks, while not being opaque. Edamame shiitake couscous sounds so yum right now!

  2. Gorgeous look! Next to Flushed in your previous post I wondered if Flamingo would be too light but it just very fresh on your cheeks. Bonus for me is that you used the Meet Matt(e) palette! It has been neglected – will have to try the combination you used. Thanks for the FOTD!

    • One of my favorite things about SK blushes is that they show up on me all year round 🙂 You should Twitpic the look when you do it!
