FOTD: Cherries Jubilee

15 Jun

Dontcha just LOVE cherries? They’re a great summertime snack!

In addition to being delicious, they’re good for you! Per choosecherries.com… a recent study revealed that a cherry-enriched diet may help lower body fat, total weight, inflammation and cholesterol – all major risk factors for heart disease. It is also believed that, anthocyanins (the antioxidant found in cherries) may be beneficial for a range of inflammatory-related conditions, including arthritis.

In case you hadn’t figured it out yet, I debuted my new NYX jumbo eye pencil in “Cherry” for this FOTD. I was pleased with both the color & the coverage. I have found some of the other NYX e/s pencils lacking in these departments, so I was pleasantly surprised. In my book it gets a perfect score! I highly recommend this pencil for you if you wanna do looks using red, orange or pink eyeshadows.

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Cherry (lower lids) & Milk (tearducts)

I used a blend of yellow gold & matte off white on my tearducts & matte camel to highlight my brow bone (WNW Vanity). NOTE: I used a softer, coral-red to blend the bolder red into the gold on my tearducts & the tan/camel on my brow bone.

Yeah, I’m feeling patriotic today. *winking @ my friends in the army* This is the closest thing to a uniform you’ll ever see me in, LOL… Thanks for all that you do 🙂

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte e/s primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk (tearduct) & Black Bean (outer v)

SHADOW: NYX Ultra Pearl Mania is a loose powder-fine metallic eyeshadow. The gold on my inner lid/ tearduct area is a mix of two different pearl pigments called Yellow Gold & Mink. I covered the remainder of my lower lid in Verdigris e/s by Ulta (a shimmery army-green color). Then I went in with a sparkly black from the CoverGirl Dazzling Metallics palette to darken my outer v & used matte camel from WetNWild Vanity palette from my crease all the way to 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 defined my upper lashline with WetnWild Cream eyeliner & used Wild N Crazy eyeliner pencil in Deep Green on my waterline.
