Thanksgiving FOTD

25 Nov

I haven’t done an Autumn inspired FOTD yet, so I felt that Thanksgiving was the perfect opportunity to embrace the colors of this season… ENJOY!


PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I covered my entire lower eyelid in NYX Ultra Pearl Mania in Orange pearl. To create the cut crease, I used my pencil brush to draw a line along the crease of my eyelid in shimmery, dark green e/s (from the Wet N Wild Snow Sprite palette). Then I used my Coastal Scents Italian badger hair crease brush to blend that line & fade the dark green e/s into a lighter shimmery green (Verdigris by Ulta). Finally I used matte camel e/s (from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette) to highlight my brow bone.


OTHER DETAILS… I used Wet N Wild Arch Envy brow wax & 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 with Wet n Wild cream eyeliner in black & my waterline with Ruby Kisses HD gel liner in “green shimmer”.  I also used Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Undereye Concealer (in CA8010 for light to medium complexions).

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey

LIPS: E.O.S. Honeysuckle Honeydew lip balm + Liplicious lip gloss in Brown Sugar

    Really pretty! I’m afraid of green, but I need to do it… I have so many green shadows and they are sitting idle! Lol!
