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.

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.

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.

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 waterline with Wet n Wild eyeliner in white (inner eye) & turquoise (outer eye).

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

LIPS: (from BBW) COBigelow lip gloss in Pink Mint
