Purple and pink tropical look

I did this look the other day when I fancied something bright and colourful. Unfortunately my camera isn't very good and it didn't capture the brightness of the colours, but you get the idea anyway. :)
This is what I used to create this look:
Guerlain eyeshadow primer
Dior eyeshadow quint in #940 Tropical - turquoise (inner corner), light purple (middle of lid, above crease and lower lashline), dark purple (outer corner/crease), light pink (above crease)
Laura Geller Blush n Brighten in Boysenberry/Amaretti (highlighter shade belowe brow bone)
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Covet
Boots No7 Extreme Length mascara (black)
Mac Two Virtues mineralize blush
Laura Geller Blush n Brighten in Boysenberry/Amaretti (highlighter shade on top of cheeks)
Mac Bubblegum lipstick
I guess this look could easily be created with Mac eyeshadows (or any other brand that offers bright coloured eyeshadows), but I don't know the dupes for these shades.
Here are some pictures of the products I used:

PS. I know that some of you found my blog by searching for images of Mac Pleasureflush MSF, so you might be interested to know that the highlighter shade of the Laura Geller Blush n Brighten is an EXACT dupe of Pleasureflush (it has the same veining as well!) and is therefore a more affordable option should you not wish to fork out $70+ on a Pleasureflush. ;) It came in a set (I dream of Italy 2), but is available on eBay and is really quite cheap, I think I've seen some for $15 or so. The blush is the same size as an MSF, so the highlighter bit is probably about 3 gramms or so, and you get a really pretty (not at all shimmery) blush as well. I think I might do a review of these lovely blushes from Laura Geller as they are well worth checking out.

  1. Hi! I like how the Two Virtues blush look on u. I just got it and was surfing to check out how it looks on others coz the colour is quite intense. You made it look subtle and nicely flushed.
