FOTD: Pin-up Girl

15 May

I endeavored to do a neutral eye with a bold lip… and somehow I ended up on the pin-up girl, retro vibe. I’m really pleased with how the look came out, especially because know nothing about wearing lipstick. Somehow I always feel like a child playing in mommy’s makeup whenever I put some on, so I just avoid it. Ya know? Oh and today was also my 1st time using WetNWild Color Icon palette in Greed… so far I’m lovin’ it!

PRIMER:Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte e/s primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: On lower lid & browbone I used matte peach from WetNWild Greed palette. I used shimmery brown from the WNW Vanity palette to create depth in my crease & matte black from WNW Greed to deepen the outer v. Oh & of course I’m still using matte camel (also WNW Vanity) on my browbone.

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 applied WetnWild cream eyeliner in black to my upper lashline using my brand new Ardell Duo Brow Brush… *LOVES IT* I used a pencil brush to apply the shimmery chocolate e/s (WNW Vanity) to my waterline, for subtle definition.

LIPS: WetNWild Mega Last Lip color in Red Velvet (910D)

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey (8305B)

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

Moral of the story: don’t be afraid to try something new. You might like it & even if you don’t, it’s just makeup… WASH IT OFF!
