FOTD: Sneaky Peach

31 May

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx matte e/s primer

BASE: Maybelline Color Tattoo in Fierce & Tangy (tangerine orange cream shadow)

SHADOW: I applied matte peach (from the Wet N Wild Greed palette) e/s to the tearduct area & inner half of my lower lid. Then I blended the peach into light tangerine (from the Coastal Scents Hot Pots palette). To create the cut crease, I used a pencil brush to apply matte dark brown (from the WNW Vanity palette) along my crease. Then I used my Sonia Kashuk large blending brush to fade the dark brown upward into my brow area. I used matte camel (also from the WNW Vanity palette) to highlight my brow bone.

  

OTHER DETAILS… I used matte blackened purple e/s from the WNW Lust palette to fill in my eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on my lashes. I defined my upper & lower lashline using Wet N Wild cream liner in black.

LIPS: WNW glassy gloss lip gel in “Mow the Glass”

Y’all know how I feel about feather earrings, right? I found this video during my YouTube travels & couldn’t wait to share it with you. These earrings are BANANAS!!! They were made by a company called LaBella Couture.

Obsession: Feather Earrings

17 Aug

I’m usually not big on trends, but I have been infatuated with feather earrings ever since I saw Aria in these turquoise feather hoops on Pretty Little Liars! This show is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. It has murder, mystery & love; all the key ingredients to a thrilling drama. Not to mention that PLL has the best-dressed cast of any teen sitcom, PERIOD. These chicks are friggin fly! Tune in to see for yourself & then maybe you can help me figure out who the heck A is… *I digress*

In this pic, Aria is rocking the asymmetrical earring look. Again… HOT!!! And on a few episodes, I noticed her wearing feathers in her hair. While this looks amazing in her (straight/ wavy) hair, I’m not sure how that works on a curly head, so Imma just stick to the earrings!

By now you know I’m ALL ABOUT doin’ it myself, & I live in the country (which limits my shopportunities), so I decided to buy some feathers & make a few pairs of my own earrings… You know what they say: “necessity is the mother of invention” & I needed these in my life, in a Tyrone Biggums kinda way. LMBO!
