I made this! (EOTD: Taupe)

So today I finally took out the TKB Trading's Pop! sampler and tried to make some little taupe color for myself. Success :)

All ingredients in same quantity (Green Apple, Grape, Raspberry and Tangerine from the Pop! Collection and the Boron glow and Sparkle samples). Note I chose colors that would cancel each other out, I wanted a taupe.
Here it's possible to see the progress:
no 1 is purple and green together
no 2 is no 1 with a touch of orange
no 3 is all the above with pinkish red, sparkle and boron added.

And here's the result:

EDM's Pick Me Up Pink as blush
EDM's Pearl Sunlight under the eyes
Simply Natural's Sandlewood as liner (wet)
EDM's Sandy Beige (intensive) as foundation and under the brow
a tad of EDM's Cool Fair (semi-matte) as the finishing veil
Next time I'll try to leave out the Sparkle, to have a more matte version. The mixing seems rather fun and easy, actually... I'd like to dupe some Silk Naturals neutral eye shadows.

PS! And here's Pick Me Up Pink as Blush:

Ilus värv! Huvitav on seda erinevate värvide lisamisega tekkivat muutumist vaadata. Ise kardan natuke sellist mässamist, sest mul on niisamagi lihtsamat meiki tehes kõik võimalikud ja võimatud kohad puudritolmu täis.:D

Eks see "ettevaatlikult, ettevaatlikult" käi jah :D
Ma segasin viinapitsis, ja väga väikeste kogustena.
