Top o the mornin’ to ya!

Y’all know me well enough to know that there’s no way I could pass up an opportunity to celebrate my favorite color!!! For your viewing pleasure & a bit of Irish inspiration, I have compiled a few of my favorite green looks from past FOTDs. Click the pictures for details on each look.

FOTD: Rolling in the deep

6 Mar

This look incorporates three of my favorite things in life: blues, greens & the all important CUT CREASE! Enjoy… 🙂

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I applied matte green e/s (from the Wet N Wild Pride palette) over the my entire lower eyelid. To create the cut crease, I used my pencil brush to draw a line of matte navy blue e/s along my crease (Pride palette). I highlighted my brow bone area w/ matte peach e/s (from the WNW Greed palette) & used my Sonia Kashuk large crease brush to blend the blue into the peach. I used the sparkly white (Pride palette) to highlight the inner corner of my eyelids.

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 using 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: Lancome Color Design lipstick in Trendy Mauve + Maybelline Shine Sensational lip gloss in Peach Sorbet

Hey Giovanni!

I washed, conditioned, detangled & air-dried my hair prior to twisting. I made about 18 twists using Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk. These pics are of my 2nd day hair.

FOTD: Mystique

9 Jan

If you’re not familiar with the X-Men comic book series, this look may not make sense to you, but because I enjoy exposing you to awesome things… I’d like to introduce you to Mystique (or Raven Darkhölme), the infamous shape-shifter of the X-Men franchise. Like most of my FOTDs, this was meant to be my interpretation of her overall look. Mystique’s mutation enables her body’s cells to morph at will. She impersonates other people from their hair, to their clothes, to the sound of their voice. They say a pic is worth a thousand words, so this is what she looks like in her natural form. If you haven’t seen them already, I HIGHLY recommend that you check out the X-Men movies. In addition to being entertaining, they’re also socially relevant; dealing with topics such as political unrest, patriotism, discrimination, diversity, terrorism, anti-semitism, loyalty & honor. Enough of that, let’s talk makeup…

 

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I applied matte navy blue e/s, from the WNW Pride palette, to the inner & outer corners of my lower eyelid. Then I used a frosty, lime green e/s to cover the center of my lower eyelid. I used matte peach e/s (WNW Greed palette) to highlight my brow bone area. For a pop of color, I used my pencil brush to apply NYX Ultra Pearl Mania e/s in Jade under my lower lashes.

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 using Wet N Wild cream liner in black.

CHEEKS: Ulta single e/s in “Sparks” on the hollows of my cheeks & Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey on the apples.

LIPS: Lancome Color Design lipstick in Trendy Mauve + CO Bigelow lip gloss in Magenta Mint

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)
