Milk Makeup has released a new Holographic Stick. The shade is called Mars and it's a golden peach tone with the medium pink flash. Besides the fact that it's beautiful, there are quite a few reasons to love it. First, I suspect that it was designed specifically for deeper skin tones, and I really appreciate that. I like supporting brands that make it a point to have products that work for everybody. It's also relatively subtle. The original holographic stick was a lavender shade, which for my personal taste meant that I only wore it at night. I've worn the new shade during the day and never felt uncomfortable or showy.
A few posts back I did I look based on the original Holographic Stick in the lavender shade Supernova. You can find that tutorial here. Keep reading to see an example of how I like to wear the new shade.
The Products & Swatches
Glossier Stretch Concealer in Dark & Deep | $18 | 0.17 oz
I'm between shades so I mix Dark and Deep. I use this product more as an overall complexion evener than a traditional concealer. Although I wish I fit into a specific shade, mixing two shades does allow me to add some subtle dimension to the face.
Au Natural Powder Blush in Apricot | $25 | 4 grams | Natural & Vegan
This is a soft orange shade. On my complexion it adds balancing warm that's not super obvious on the face. I have the product in the old packaging/formulation, I believe the new shade Fig might be the most comparable.
Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Mars | $28 | 1 oz | Vegan
This look was inspired by this golden peach holographic highlighter. In the headshots it's difficult to see the shift, but trust me it's there.
Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara | $22 | 0.28 fl oz | Natural
This is my new favorite green beauty mascara, if just for the fact that it's a 2-in-1 product that includes both a mascara and a lash primer. For me lash primer is an essential. Unless I'm in a rush, I always use it.
Vapour Beauty Aura Multi Use Classic | $36 | 0.24 oz | Natural
Another great multi-use green beauty product, this is a travel essential for me. It works beautifully on both lips and cheeks, but in this look I just used it on my lips.

I started off with some prep work out of the way.
