Pieces of Me Look 5/15/16

Hi guys!  I have not been feeling myself lately and now I am really trying to get back to who and what I am.  Have you ever felt like that? Lost? Makeup and the world of beauty have always been my safe place, my refuge, my happy place.  No matter what was happening, I could always go to my makeup area and lose myself in the beauty and wonder of the products.  What better place to get lost in than my Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow collection?  (I am so close to having them all.  I hope they don't release any more shades until I can at least complete the ones in the original collection.)  For this cool smokey look, I do feel like I got a little piece of me back.  I felt in control of the outcome for this look and that made me feel safe.  This is what I used to create the look:

Tarte Cosmetics Marine Boosting Mist - spritzed on face
Tarte Cosmetics Drink Of H2O Hydrating Boost - face and eyes
Nars Cosmetics Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base - eyes, brows
