FOTD: Greens & Blues

8 May

 Greens & blues eyes are some of my favorite looks… Hope you enjoy this one 🙂

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte e/s primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: On my tearduct I used pastel green, then I blended that into an apple-y green (both from Shany 120 palette) & on my outer lid I used blue from the CoverGirl Tropical Fusion palette. Then I went back in with an aqua-colored shadow (Shany) to help blend the green into blue over the center of my eyelid. I finished with matte camel e/s (WetNWild Vanity) under my browbone.

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my waterline with a WetnWild Eyeliner Pencil in turquoise & added both blue & green e/s (Shany) directly on top of the line using a pencil brush for added drama.

LIPS: Carmex + L’Oreal HIP lip gloss in Inviting

CHEEKS: WetNWild Blush in “Heather Silk” (on the apples of my cheeks) & Ulta single e/s in Sparks (in the hollows of my cheeks)

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

 Tip of the day: If you have allergies or stayed up too late last night, your eyes might look dull &/or red in the morning. Wearing blue or green eyeshadow can accentuate redness & draw negative attention to your lovely peepers. To hydrate my allergy eyes & reduce redness, I use a couple of drops of Opcon-A eye drops before I put on my makeup. It makes them bright white & relieves the itch. NOTE: There are numerous brands of eyedrops designed to do this task, Opcon-A just happens to be the one I prefer.
