FOTD: “Lucky” Re-loaded

3 Aug

I liked the Feelin’ Lucky FOTD soooo much that I decided to give it another go. But this time I used turquoise on my lower lid (instead of green) & purple on my crease (instead of fuchsia). ENJOY!

PRIMER:  NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Rocky Mountain Green

SHADOW: I used matte turquoise on my outer lower lid (Shany 120 palette). I faded that color into a frosty teal e/s (also Shany) & used matte off-white to highlight my tearducts (Wet N Wild Greed palette). I used matte lavender to accent my crease & dark purple to deepen the outer v (also Shany). Finally, I used matte peach e/s to highlight my brow bone (from the Wet N Wild Greed palette).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Maybelline Volume Express “Falsies” Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline with Wet n Wild cream eyeliner in black. I used Wet N Wild pencil in turquoise on my waterline & set it by applying turquoise e/s with my pencil brush.

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

CHEEKS: CoverGirl single e/s in Forever Fig

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep

I used matte fuchsia to accent my crease & dark purple to deepen the outer v (also from Shany 120 palette). Finally, I used matte peach e/s to highlight my brow bone (from the Wet N Wild Greed palette).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Maybelline Volume Express “Falsies” Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes.

ShamIamGlam’s 100th post! YAY *throws confetti*

“Alabama’s generally warm, humid climate results from its mid-latitude location and proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. This location also produces the often turbulent weather patterns that regularly bring tornadoes and hurricanes to the state.” – Phillip Chaney, Auburn University (encyclopediaofalabama.org)

In case you were wondering, we have had scattered thunderstorms EVERY DAY THIS WEEK *whomp whomp* This is why I’ve been reppin’ the wash-n-go/curly fro so hard… On to the makeup 🙂

PRIMER: NYX High Definition e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yellow

SHADOW: I covered the inner two-thirds of my lower eyelid in a matte greenish-yellow, then I went in with a pale, matte green that was 1-2 shades darker than the yellow & applied it to my outer v (both e/s are from the Shany 120 palette). Then I used matte black from Wet N Wild Greed palette to darken & contour the crease & outer v. I used matte peach e/s (also WNW Greed) on my brow bone.

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Maybelline Volume Express “Falsies” Mascara in Blackest Black on my eyelashes. I defined my upper lashline & waterline with Ruby Kisses HD gel eyeliner in teal.

LIPS: Carmex + Estee Lauder lip gloss in Rose

FOTD: Sunshine… Blue skies

14 Jul

It’s summatime y’all! *in my southern accent*

Although summer is not my favorite season, it does have some particularly wonderful attributes! Long days, beautiful sunsets, cookouts, sundresses, open-toed shoes, Vacation Bible School & summer camp (Oh the memories), ripe & extremely inexpensive fruit, trips to the beach, family reunions, & last, but not least… tans! Speaking of summer complexions; I’m in transition from caramel to mocha. My pressed powder doesn’t even match anymore, LOL :/

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yellow

SHADOW: I applied Coastal Scents Mica powder in Canary Yellow to my inner lower eyelid. On my outer lower lid I used matte aqua blue eyeshadow (Shany 120 palette). Then I used matte royal blue e/s (also Shany) to define my crease & lower lashline & matte camel (WNW Vanity) to highlight my brow bone.

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 with Wet n Wild cream eyeliner in black.

11 Jul

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I covered my lower eyelid in royal blue (Shany 120 palette), then I used canary yellow mica powder (Coastal Scents) just above my crease & into the tearduct area. I used matte black (Wet N Wild Greed palette) on my outer v & matte camel (Wet N Wild Vanity palette) to highlight my brow bone & to fade out the yellow.

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 eyeliner in black. On my waterline I used Wet n Wild eyeliner pencil in silver blue & followed it up with more royal blue e/s (Shany 120 palette).
