FOTD: Pewter & Purple Smoke

4 Sep

I love to chillax & watch movies on Sunday afternoon! Today I saw The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds (for the third time). If you haven’t already, you definitely need to see this movie. It’s super cute & Ryan is hottt!!! He’s also my birthday twin! BTW none of this has anything to do with my FOTD, just wanted to share, LOL! ūüôā Onto the makeup…

PRIMER:  NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

SHADOW:¬†I used a metallic pewter colored e/s called “Twilight” by Ulta on the majority of my lower eyelid. Then I used matte purple (Shany 120 palette) on my crease & outer v. Using my Coastal Scents crease brush, I gradually added darker shades of purple to my outer v until I got the desired depth of color (Wet N Wild Lust palette). Finally, I used matte peach e/s to highlight my¬†brow bone & matte off white e/s to highlight my tearducts (both from Wet N Wild Greed palette).

OTHER DETAILS‚Ķ I used CoverGirl¬†single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. L‚ÄôOreal Collagen Mascara¬†in Blackest Black on my eyelashes.¬†I¬†defined my upper lashline using Never Smudge liquid liner in “Royal Purple” by Ruby Kisses & used Ulta glitter eyeliner pencil in Silver on my waterline.

LIPS:¬†¬†Carmex¬†+ Estee Lauder lip gloss in “Rose”

CHEEKS: Ulta single e/s in Sparks (on the hollows of my cheeks)

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep

SN about my hair:¬† I washed, DC’ed & roller set it yesterday using African Pride Leave-In Conditioner & Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk. I am pleased with the results, even though I doubt it will last. The bottom line is that it’s way too humid & rainy for loose hairstyles. FALL PLEASE HURRY UP & GET HERE!!!

    I really love this color combination! Think it’s something I might even be brave enough to wear out! As for the Proposal – I was surprised to have enjoyed that movie as much as I did (but shhh… dont tell… Ryan w/o a shirt on totally sold the movie for me!). ūüėČ
