Eve Pearl Face and Swatch Time!

As promised, here is my Eve Pearl face of the day.
Products used:
  • EP Salmon concealer in light
  • EP dual HD foundation in light (applied with sponge)
  • EP dual HD Pressed powder in light (mixed of both shades) applied with puff
  • EP Classic Palette with Bronzer, Blush, and Highlight
  • EP loose setting powder with powder brush (yes, I double powdered! With a thin layer of the regular powder and a light hand with the loose setting powder, you can get a nice satin finish)
  • Lips - EP Pearlicious Lipgloss in Climax
  • Eyes: Kat Von D eye primer, plum smokes Maybelline quad, Stila Topaz liner on waterline, and Almay Dial-Up Mascara. 
I think the foundation photographs very well.  So, if you had an event coming up, it will look great in pics -- especially when you won't be holding a camera as close to your face as I was.  It really makes the skin look flawless and believe me, I don't have flawless skin.
The pressed powder comes with two shades.  I prefer to swirl my brush in both of them, but if you have one that is slightly too dark for you, try using it to contour.

Here's a close-up of the colors on the puff.

I am in love with the highlighter in this palette, but the bronzer, not so much.  Too much shimmer for me, but if you like a lot of shimmer, this may be for you.  I used a very light hand with the bronzer b/c it also shows up a bit darker on my light skin.

The palette is all very soft and they blend easily.  Very pigmented.  I just wish the highlighter was sold separately.

I added a second pic with less of the white-cast on my face from holding the camera so close.


  1. Soo pretty! You have lovely eyes :)

  2. Do you find the foundation has full coverage? I have freckles and I like to cover them up once in a while. I am watching their vids now. Thanks Staci another thing for my wishlist LOL. Did you apply the concealer before or after the foundation? I am always curious as to how other people apply concealer. I have just had to start using it and find concealer a hard thing to master LOL

  3. I really love your skin! And you've got such beautiful eyes!!

  4. Thanks for the comments ladies!
    @Raina, the EP site claims the foundation is sheer-medium-full. While you can build it to full, I think it's more medium coverage for me to have it look natural. I think it comes off as full coverage in pictures though, so if it were an event where pictures are taken (or hey, even a night out!) it looks amazing. However, my favorite full coverage foundation for my every day work day is the Laura Mercier silk creme foundation. Love that product. A lot of people also seem to love Revlon colorstay as a drugstore brand, but you have to work faster with that foundation.

    As for concealer, for both under-eye and blemishes I do mine before foundation. But I know what you mean, a lot of people have different styles of when they put it on, etc. Undereye concealer I may touch up if I have a long day and in that case it goes over my foundation, but for the most part, I do it right after I use my face primer :)
