FOTD: Election Fever

6 Nov

Not much to say about this one. I was feeling extremely patriotic this morning. That sentiment gave birth to a red, white & blue FOTD. Enjoy ūüėČ

Notice something new? This is my “new” 28 pan of Coastal Scents Hot Pots. I will discuss it in greater detail in the near future.

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I applied Powder Pink Hot Pot (a matte white color with slight pink undertone) e/s to my entire lower eyelid. I used a mixture of Blue My Mind (a pearly royal blue) by Milani & Indigo Hot Pot (a matte royal blue) to define my crease. I used Electric Blue Hot Pot (matte true blue) to blend the outer edges of the blue crease. On my brow area I used Oatmeal Tan Hot Pot.

OTHER DETAILS… I used Palladio eyeliner pencil in Dark Brown (EL193) to fill in my eyebrows & L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black on my lashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline using Sephora waterproof smoky cream liner in Must Have (matte black). I traced a thin line under my eye using the Milk pencil. I used a pencil brush to apply Vibrant Red Hot Pot (true red, matte finish) directly on top of Milk.

FACE: For spot correction I used, Ruby Kisses 3D face creator in Level 11. Then I dusted a light layer of Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05). I skipped blush.

LIPS: Carmex + Wet N Wild Mega Last lip color in Red Velvet

Just in case you were wondering…

FOTD: Berry Burst

7 Jun

In case you’re wondering, I am trying my best to post my backlogged FOTDs in the order they were taken (hence the retroactive dates). I apologize for any confusion this may cause. ūüėČ Enjoy…

PRIMER: Mary Kay Eye Primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Cherry

SHADOW: I applied a matte pastel pink e/s (from the Wet N Wild Lust palette) to my tearduct area.  I blended the light pink into Neon Red (a matte pinkish red e/s) from my Coastal Scents Hot Pots palette. Then I used my Sonia Kashuk large crease brush to apply Maroon Berry (a matte burgundy e/s, also by CS) to the outer portion of my lid.  Finally I used Puce (a matte pinkish tan e/s, also by CS) to highlight my browbone & blend out the reds.

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 & lower lashline using L’Oreal H.I.P. cream liner in Teal.

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

LIPS: Lancome Le Rouge Absolu lipstick in Pink Diamond + CO Bigelow lip gloss in Pink Mint

18 Mar

I’m slowly making my way to using the rest of my CS Hot Pots palette…

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Yellow

SHADOW: First I applied in Oatmeal Tan (camel) to my lower eyelid. I used my Sonia Kashuk large crease brush to accent my crease w/ Neon Red (pinkish-red) & Maroon Berry (burgundy) on my outer v.

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 using Wet N Wild cream liner in black. For a pop of color, I used a pencil brush to apply Milani e/s in Blue My Mind along my waterline.

Better late than never… LOL!

FOTD: Tis the season…

21 Dec

This is me practicing my surprised face for Christmas morning…

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I covered the inner third of my lower eyelid in matte white e/s from the Wet N Wild Pride palette that I’m finally getting around to using. I blended the white e/s into a red mica powder that I made myself (using ingredients from CoastalScents.com). I call it “Red Hot”!!! Next I used my crease brush to apply matte grassy green e/s (Shany 120 palette) to the crease area. This wasn’t dramatic enough for me, so I used my pencil brush to apply my favorite shimmery, dark green e/s (Wet N Wild Snow Sprite palette) along the border between the red & green, to cut the crease a little harder. I used a clean brush to blend the green into my brow bone area & then applied matte peach e/s (from the Wet N¬†Wild Greed palette)¬†to my brow bone.

  

OTHER DETAILS‚Ķ¬†I used Wet N Wild Arch Envy brow wax & CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows & L‚ÄôOreal Collagen Mascara¬†in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined¬†my upper lashline with Wet N Wild cream liner in black & Wet N Wild pencil in white on my waterline. I used a pencil brush to smudge green mica powder just below the waterline. I also made this e/s using products from Coastal Scents. I call it “Envy Me.”

CHEEKS: Ulta¬†single e/s in ‚ÄúSparks‚ÄĚ on the hollows of my cheeks

LIPS: Carmex + L’Oreal H.I.P. lip gloss in Inviting

FACE: Nada

Stay tuned for a video tutorial of this look…

You thought I was gonna post “Deck the Halls” didntcha? PSYCHE! This song is waaay better. It gets you in the Christmas mood, even if it’s 70¬į & pouring rain outside! SN: Have I ever told y’all how in love I am with Brian McKnight? He’s my old man crush! ūüėČ ENJOY…

FOTD: Apple Jacks

4 Oct

Fourscore & seven years ago… I promised my sorority sister¬†that I would do a Face of the Day in honor of her favorite cereal: APPLE JACKS!¬†*luv¬†ya Fabo*¬†I shan’t lie, Apple Jacks are pretty tasty, but they don’t hold a candle to my beloved Froot Loops. Click here to see the Froot¬†Loops FOTD!¬†

Last Saturday Mom & I attended a holiday/ floral expo. Frazer United Methodist Church hosted “Decorate your Days” to raise money for the Cancer Wellness Foundation of Central Alabama. They had¬†vendors who sold food, Christmas decorations, jewelry & other random stuff.¬† Local florists¬†took the stage to show us¬†how to make floral arrangements. I was waaaaay outta place down in “granny central”, but it’s always great to spend an afternoon with the one who gave you life!¬†I’m sure those old ladies thought I was some kind of Christmas fanatic with my red & green eyeshadow, but Mama loved it & that’s all that matters! She called me “Miss Green” all afternoon… LOL!¬†

I almost forgot to mention that Auburn beat South Carolina! WAAAR EAGLE... HEY!
