How to wear I Wish

Hi Beauties,
  Since I Wish has been re-released on the Bare Escentuals website, I keep getting asked "How do you wear this?" I know that blue is so vibrant it may scare you when it arrives. Its actually my favorite piece in this kit. Coming in close second Lucky Penny ;) Wearing this kit is really fun! The shades make me feel happy so I like to wear them often! Here is a look I did for one of my Facebook friends! If you Haven't done so yet, please "Like" the Facebook page J. Sparkles: Bare Escentuals Bliss

 I did a nice summer look with this kit. I applied Dandelion with a Soft Focus Eye Brush from crease to brow just to give my brow bone a soft wash of color. I then applied Dandelion with a Tapered Shadow Brush on my lid from the inner corner to the center of the lid and along the bottom lash line to the center of the eye. Now using a Double Ended Precision Brush, I applied Shooting Star on the lower lash line from the center to the outer corner and on the lid from the center of the lid to the outer corner. When you apply it, you will have a harsh line in the center, you want to blend that. The best way to do this is to pull the colors together to meet. You can use an Eye Defining or Crease Defining brush for this step. What you want to do is glide the brush tip over the edge of Dandelion toward Shooting Star & Shooting Star toward Dandelion in the center of the lid. It is a motion similar to using a feather duster. Just a back & forth motion until the colors are blended. Now without dipping the brush into any colors, just brush it back & forth on the crease. It will give a soft greenish hue to the crease. Last but not least, wetline Lucky Penny along your upper & lower lash line. Apply your favorite mascara, shade in your brows & you are ready to go!
 Hope you enjoy this look!

 Peace & Sparkles,
