Miahsje’s Senior Prom & FOTD

28 Apr

This pic of my cousins & I was taken about 2 years ago at Stone Mountain, Georgia during one of our legendary girl weekends.

I generally refer to them as my little cousins, but I’ve recently come to realize that Miahsje ain’t little no mo’! I’m not sure how someone can simultaneously be sad & proud, but that’s the best way I know to describe what I’m feeling right now. MiMi is one of the great loves of my life, so when she asked me to come help her get ready for her senior prom, I gassed up the whip & rode out. I wanted to share the family moment w/ y’all but I knew this post would be picture-heavy, so check out this video…

PRIMER: Mary Kay eye primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: To coordinate with MiMi’s royal blue dress, I wanted to create a blue smoky eye. I started by applying Milani’s Blue My Mind e/s to the majority of her outer lower eyelid. For a pop of color, I added matte, hot pink e/s (from the Shany 120 palette) to her inner corner.  After blending that out, I used matte camel e/s (from the Wet N Wild Vanity palette) to cover her brow bone area. Then I went back in w/ my pencil brush & applied a frosty champagne colored e/s just below the arch of her eyebrow for added drama (@ her mother’s request, LOL).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to fill in Miahsje’s eyebrows & L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black on her lashes. I used Wet N Wild cream liner in black to define her upper lashline & Ruby Kisses HD gel liner in Teal Shimmer on her waterline.

FACE: I primed her skin using Revlon Beyond Natural Smoothing Primer & applied a light dusting of Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep.

FOTD: Zeta Love

18 Jan

“I looked out over the ocean. I looked out over the sea. I saw some blue & white, it was shining so bright, I heard it call out to me…”

To commemorate 92 years of service, scholarship, sisterly love & finer womanhood, I decided to to a royal blue & pure white FOTD. S/O to my sorors! I hope you had a Zetalicious Founder’s Day!

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk (inner two-thirds of my lower eyelid) & Black Bean (outer v)

SHADOW: I applied matte white e/s (from the Wet N Wild Pride palette) to the innermost portion of my lower lid, stopping right before the outer v. Next I applied Milani Baked e/s in “Blue My Mind” to the outer v & blended that into the crease. After that, I used both aqua & cerulean shades of blue from the Black Radiance Retro Chic palette to blend the royal blue into the white, creating the gradation effect. Then I used matte peach e/s (WNW Greed palette) to highlight my brow bone area.

 

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 Wet N Wild cream liner in black & my waterline with Sephora waterproof cream liner in The Deep End. I also used Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Undereye Concealer (in CA8010 for light to medium complexions).

CHEEKS: Ulta single e/s in “Sparks” on the hollows of my cheeks

LIPS: Carmex + Lancome Color Design lipstick in Trendy Mauve

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

Stay tuned for a video tutorial of this look…

FOTD: Mean Green

22 Nov

So I’m a little behind on my faces of the day… blame it on intense holiday preparations. Mama had me working like a Hebrew slave this past weekend, LOL! But we are ready for Thanksgiving! How about you?

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo pencil in Rocky Mountain Green

SHADOW: I covered my entire lower lid in teal green e/s (frost finish) from the Shany Cosmetics 120 palette. Then I applied Java Bean (a shimmery brown e/s) by Milani along my crease & blended it upwards. Next I used matte peach e/s from the Wet N Wild Greed palette on my brow bone. I also added a touch of matte dark purple to my outer v for added depth.

OTHER DETAILS… I used Wet N Wild Arch Envy eyebrow duo in brunette & CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Then I used Maybelline Falsies mascara in blackest black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline using Wet N Wild cream liner in black. I also applied Wet N Wild eyeliner pencil in turquoise along my lower lashline & applied the same frosty teal & dark purple (from my eyelid) to my under eye. Then I used Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Undereye Concealer (in CA8010 for light to medium complexions).

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

LIPS:  E.O.S. lip balm + Maybelline Shiny-Licious lip gloss in Peach Sortbet

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)
