Easter Sunday orange peach makeup Look

Easter Sunday Peach makeup look

Today is Easter Sunday. Happy Easter to all who observe the day. I am not actively religious myself. However, while growing up Easter Sunday was a big event. You got all dressed up in your best clothes and went to church. Then you went home and had a nice big Easter Sunday dinner. And the day after you went to the beach and had yourself some great fun. My mother always knew how to make these special days extra special. But this year Easter Sunday is a sad day for her as she has lost a brother. So before I go on to talk about something as trivial as make-up I would like to acknowledge the passing of my uncle. I met him only a few times when I was little and I don’t remember very much about him. But I know my mother loved her brother and is heart broken over his passing. I hope that she and my uncle’s wife, children and the rest of his family will find comfort in their memories of him.

Make the most of every day…

orange eye shadowI don’t have any plans for today myself. I probably should have planned on making a nice dinner or going out to eat. It’s a nice sunny day. But I hadn’t even known for a fact that today is Easter Sunday until I Googled “When is Easter Sunday”.  So I am home doing nothing. I was fooling around in Photoshop to pass some time earlier. I did some work on a photo of myself. I touched it up quite a bit (some might suggest too much). Then I uploaded the photo to taaz.com to apply an orange peach makeup look.

Peach orange Makeup Look

According to the info on taaz.com, my orange peach makeup look was achieved using the items below:

NARS Duo Eyeshadow, Sandra (Bone Silver Mist)

NARS Duo Eyeshadow Sandra Bone Silver Mist

  • NARS cream eye shadow in El Dorado
  • NARS blush in luster
  • Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadows in Seashells 4
  • NARS satin lipstick in promiscuous
  • Chanel inimitable mascara in 10 noir black

NARS blush eyeshadow chanel mascara revlon eyeshadow

To be honest with you I don’t think these items will give you an orange peach makeup look. Based on the descriptions I’ve read from customers for these items, the promiscuous satin lipstick is more along the pinkish, purplish, berryish range of shades. Why it looks orange peach on my lips is anybody’s guess. Maybe it only looks that way on my screen? Or is this an indication that online make-up tools don’t give you an accurate picture of how the items you use look in reality?

The hoop earrings…

The earrings were Photoshopped in place. They were taken from a photo of Jennifer Lopez. My eye lashes and eyebrows are obviously not real eyelashes and eyebrows. Those were drawn on using Photoshop brushes then enhanced on taaz.com.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could magically paint away all your imperfections in real life the way you can in Photoshop?

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
