FOTD: Mean Green

22 Nov

So I’m a little behind on my faces of the day… blame it on intense holiday preparations. Mama had me working like a Hebrew slave this past weekend, LOL! But we are ready for Thanksgiving! How about you?

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo pencil in Rocky Mountain Green

SHADOW: I covered my entire lower lid in teal green e/s (frost finish) from the Shany Cosmetics 120 palette. Then I applied Java Bean (a shimmery brown e/s) by Milani along my crease & blended it upwards. Next I used matte peach e/s from the Wet N Wild Greed palette on my brow bone. I also added a touch of matte dark purple to my outer v for added depth.

OTHER DETAILS… I used Wet N Wild Arch Envy eyebrow duo in brunette & CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Then I used Maybelline Falsies mascara in blackest black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline using Wet N Wild cream liner in black. I also applied Wet N Wild eyeliner pencil in turquoise along my lower lashline & applied the same frosty teal & dark purple (from my eyelid) to my under eye. Then I used Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Undereye Concealer (in CA8010 for light to medium complexions).

CHEEKS: I used Ulta single e/s in “Sparks” on the hollows of my cheeks & Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey on the apples.

LIPS:  E.O.S. lip balm + Maybelline Shiny-Licious lip gloss in Peach Sortbet

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

    Another gorgeous look. But, that’s just so many eyeshadows!! I have all this make-up that I don’t even wear now! It’s accumulated over YEARS though. I really don’t need my PJ ways to start extend to make-up! I think I’ll stick with the single palette, Wet & Wild look;). I do love the look of this turquoise/aqua against a plum/brown though. I’m probably too old for this look anyway;)!

      And NONSENSE! You could totally pull off this look. The Wet N Wild Pride palette has some bright greens 😉 It (like the Vanity palette) is also $4.99, but sometimes Rite Aid has em on BOGO.

        There aren’t any Rite Aids in my area, but pretty sure K-Mart carries Wet N Wild. The problem? There was no way I was going there this past weekend:/. It NORMALLY takes 30 minutes to get through a line at the one near me when there are FOUR people in the store. This weekend, the parking lot was teaming with cars and there was no way I was venturing into that place! I thought it might be at Sally’s or Harmon … but alas, it was not. I’ll get that palette eventually:)!!
