EOTD: I think I've found my "Happy Place"...

Ummmm, yes. I have definitely found "The Happy Place." Stop being nasty - I'm talking about one of the new limited edition quads being promoted in the Super Natural Trend Collection from bareMinerals. 

This collection is gorgeous and features, along with several other products, two limited edition Ready 4.0 quads with new shades: The Happy Place and The Rare Find. I love them both! Check out my other post for my mini review, swatches, and comparison. Here is how I used The Happy Place:

  1. I primed my eyelid with the tarte clean slate 360 creaseless 12-hour smoothing eye primer.
  2. I swept the lightest shade all over my eye, from lash line to brow bone, with a Sigma E25.
  3. I used a Sigma E55 to pat the rose gold shade all over the lid.
  4. Next, I deepened the crease with the taupe shade, using an E25.
  5. With an E45, I blended the eggplant color just onto the outer corner.
  6. I used the same shade to line my upper lash line and placed it on the outer third of my lower lash line with an E30.
  7. Using the E30 again, I blended the rose gold shade on the middle third of the lower lash line.
  8. Next, I lined my upper and lower water line with the Maybelline Master Drama Cream Pencil in Midnight Master.
  9. Last, I applied gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara from tarte (loving this!).

Other products used: tarte clean slate poreless 12-hr perfecting primer, tarte maracuja miracle foundation in fair, Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Bisque, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles in Light, the Balm time balm concealer in lighter than light, MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light Plus, Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder, tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed, Maybelline Define-A-Brow in Light Brown, Rimmel Stay Glossy Lip Gloss in All Night Long.  

 I can't do the serious face pictures without giggling :)

What do you think? Do you have this quad? Any suggestions on how to use these shades?

Here's to you finding "The Happy Place" - Becca
