FOTD: Coal Mine Canary

27 May

*GUCCI!* Canary is such a pretty shade of yellow… dontcha think?  I especially love how it looks in contrast with black, which is why I wore this particular sundress the other day… & because I’m super “matchy”, I HAD to accompany the look with yellow & black eyeshadow (hence the title of this look) 🙂

Canary yellow is the name of the shimmery mica powder I used for this look. I purchased it from Coastal Scents for next to nothing. Sample size: $1 for a teaspoon of product! I may be a product junkie, but I’m not a millionaire, so I can appreciate a company that sells high quality products at affordable prices, CS does just that… If you’re interested in some new e/s palettes, makeup brushes, micas, pigments, etc… Check them out! Oh & to all of you naturalistas & mixologists: CS also sells shea & cocoa butter, essential oils, fragrance oils & all kinds of things for DIY cosmetic products. *LOVES THIS* If you’re interested, now’s a great time to test the waters because they’re having a Memorial Day Sale… until midnight EST on May 30th… 20% OFF the entire store!

Ok guys! I’m done rambling… onto the MAKEUP 🙂
