FOTD: Pink Swaggatude!

20 Jul

*Singing “Yes yes y’all! And it don’t stop”* Notice anything different?!? I have reinstated my roller set. It feels sooo good to have my swagga back 🙂 OH! Shout out to my boo for letting me deebo the term “swaggatude” LOL…

For this hairdo I used my oldie (but goodie) 1 inch diameter, pink, magnetic rollers. I was rather heavy-handed with hair products this time *BAD SHAM!* I used both African Pride Leave-In Conditioner, Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Cream & some actual shea butter. Hopefully my curls will last a minute or two longer than they did last week. Y’all hafta excuse me, cuz I’m still a little bitter about the flexi-rod set 😥 OK! That’s enough hair talk, ONTO THE MAKEUP…

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (lower lid) & Cherry (crease)

SHADOW: I used matte pastel pink e/s (Wet N Wild Lust palette) to highlight my tearducts. Then I covered the remainder of my lower eyelid in NYX Ultra Pearl Mania e/s in Space (a metallic periwinkle blue loose pigment). To create the cut crease, I drew a red line along the crease of my eyelid using the NYX pencil in Cherry. I applied matte hot pink e/s (Shany 120 palette) on top of that line & blended it up towards my brow.  Finally, I used matte peach e/s to highlight my brow bone (from the Wet N Wild Greed palette).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Maybelline Volume Express “Falsies” Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline with Wet n Wild cream eyeliner in black.

LIPS:  Carmex + “Stop Violence in the Home” lip gloss by The Body Shop

CHEEKS: Wet N Wild blush in Heather Silk

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)
