How I Wear: bareMinerals "The Wild Thing"

Scared. I am scared of wearing bright colors. Why? I don't know, it's just makeup, right? I first fell in love with the packaging of the Remix Trend Collection (out for spring from bareMinerals), and almost bought items for that reason alone.

I decided to try The Wild Thing....and I will say that I am not sorry. While it's not a quad I would reach for everyday, it is nice for a change. And the super "scary" colors? Not so scary. I think I've said it before, bareMinerals READY shadows can be sheered out, or built up to the color you see in the pan. It makes these brighter shades more wearable for the color shy.

Online, bareMinerals describes the shades as:
Sensational, Icon, Elitist, Controversy
bareMinerals The Wild Thing, clockwise from top: Sensational, Icon, Controversy, Elitist.
  • Sensational: iridescent aqua
  • Elitist: bronzed taupe
  • Icon: electric chartreuse
  • Controversy: deep marine blue

This READY 4.0 quad retails for $30 and is sold in stores and online at bareescentuals.com, ulta.com, sephora.com, or anywhere else bareMinerals items may be sold.

Here is how I wore The Wild Thing:
Icon on the lid, Controversy blended onto the outer corner, Elitist in the crease and Sensational as an inner corner and brow highlight. I also smudged Icon, Elitist and Controversy under my lower lashes, in that order, from inner to outer corner. I used a navy colored liner and smudged Controversy over the top.

I know - such a dork! Trying to have some fun and get a picture without 1 of my 3 toddlers in the background.
