Weekend shenanigans & FOTD: Soft Sable

13 Feb

I went to the movies & had dinner at Panera Bread Co with my mama (she’s the best)! I absolutely LOVE scary movies, so we saw The Woman in Black. My thoughts? It wasn’t nearly as scary as it could or should have been (hence the rating of PG-13) *YAWN* As I sat in the theater munching on my contraband trail mix (because movie theater snacks are ridiculously expensive & high in both fat & sodium) I noticed that there was an overabundance of people half my age, giggling, play-fighting & playing musical chairs all up in the theater. What the &*%@?! We purposefully attended the matinée show to take advantage of the lower-priced tickets & the vacant stadium seating, but no… the darn TEENAGERS were there to see their beloved Harry Potter all grown up. I feel so old right now. *SIGHS* Anyway, I’ve been experimenting with smoky eyes lately & this is what I came up with…Subtlety is not my strong suit, but today’s look is a simple, dark brown smoky eye. The flash from my camera made the brown appear lighter than it did in person. This is a more accurate depiction. My shiny happy wig is the result of finger coils, created using KCKT & organic extra virgin coconut oil. Do you see those 2 twists on the right side? That hair WILL. NOT. COIL. I don’t know why, but no amount of  baby talk, gel, water, kind words, conditioner, oil or sweet nothings will make that hair curl. *WHOMP WHOMP*

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I applied matte dark brown from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette over my entire lower eyelid. On my crease I used matte brown from the CoverGirl Coffee Shop palette (a slightly lighter shade than the first one). For a softer, more natural look, I used Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep on my brow bone.

OTHER DETAILS… I used 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

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

LIPS: E.O.S. Honeysuckle Honeydew lip balm+ Lancome Color Design lipstick in Trendy Mauve

    Thanks ladies!

    @CurlyCEO: First I shampooed w/ Kinky Curly Come Clean, then I conditioned & detangled w/ Aussie 3 minute miracle. I separated my hair into about 6 sections. I applied about half a tablespoon of extra virgin organic coconut oil & a teaspoon of Kinky Curly Knot Today to each section of hair before coiling it. I was working w/ damp (not soaking wet) hair, BTW. After I finished coiling, I hit it with the blow dryer (low heat, high speed) to finish drying & build volume.
