FB Flashback: FOTD Lemon-Lime

14 Oct

I’m especially proud of this FOTD because it was my first attempt at the elusive cut crease. I’m not sure if the dark green is sharp enough to qualify as a “cut crease”, but maybe the makeup police will let it slide. 😉 S/O to my work boo, Amanda, for suggesting that I use these colors! Oh & pardon the blur, these pics were taken with my cell phone… ENJOY!

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx matte e/s primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk (lower lid) & Black Bean (on the crease)

SHADOW: I used Coastal Scents mica powder in Canary Yellow on my inner lid (tear duct area). To create the gradation effect, I blended the yellow mica powder into a matte greenish-yellow e/s (from my Shany 120 palette). Then I blended the yellowish-green into matte lime green (also Shany). To create the cut crease, I drew a line along the crease of my eyelid using the NYX pencil in Black Bean. I applied matte teal green e/s (also Shany) on top of that line, blending it up & out. Finally I used matte camel (from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette) to highlight my browbone.

CHEEKS: Ulta single e/s in “Sparks” on the hollows of my cheeks & CoverGirl bronzer to highlight my cheekbones

Before SIAG, my facebook page served as a platform for my hair experiments, product reviews & faces of the day. I stumbled upon a few looks that I wanted to share with you, so take a trip with me down memory lane…
