FOTD: Evergreen

13 Dec

Today’s face was inspired by the beauty of the coniferous forest. This pic is the closest I’ll ever get to experiencing crisp mountain air. It’s beautiful & all, but have you seen the movie The Edge? I don’t do bears, boo boo! I’ll just enjoy the view from my computer screen & sniff my pine-scented candle, thanks! LOL

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 Turquoise Pearl. Then 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). I used my Coastal Scents crease brush to blend that line & fade the dark green e/s into a matte grassy green (from the Shany 120 palette). Finally I used matte peach e/s (from the Wet N Wild Greed 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 & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline with Wet N Wild cream liner in black.

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey

LIPS: Lancome Color Design lipstick in Trendy Mauve + Powetic Treasures lip gloss in Pink Passion

FACE: Nada

    Very pretty makeup! Love the hair too,would like to go natural but Im so scared,my hair is already short..what suggestions do you have?

      First you have to decide what you’re comfortable with, but since your hair is already short, big chopping shouldn’t be too scary. I say grow out the relaxer for a few months, while keeping it edged up. At the end of your timeframe (2-3 months) you should be able to tell if you can handle the 2 textures or if you wanna go ahead the perm cut off.
