Dolce Vita



Closer look of Nars Dolce Vita:


Dolce Vita appears as a brick red in the pan, slightly scary for someone fair skinned and prone to redness like me. In fact I've had it for a year without actually wearing it because I was afraid it would make me look like I have rosacea. However I'm glad I decided to give it a go, because when applied lightly (just don't pack in on) with a blush brush it gives a healthy glow to my cheeks.


Also, Revlon Peach looks different here compared with my previous post, probably due to the sunny lighting + different camera settings. I think the most accurate representation of the colour is actually in the first full face picture.

Eyeshadow closeup - used all colours from the Lavshuca Eye Select palette in PU-2



Here is the full breakdown of what I used:

Mix of Lunasol Water Cream foundation + Guerlain Parure Extreme
Cargo blu-ray concealer
MAC Emote blush
Nars Dolce Vita blush

Revlon Colourburst in Peach

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Lavshuca Eye Colour Select in PU-2
Kate Super Sharp Liner BK-1
Mary Kay Ultimate mascara

I've shied away from this shade too. Good to know it can be worn nicely on light complexions!
