FOTD: Lightning n Thunder

15 Jul

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 ūüôā

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‚Ķ I used CoverGirl¬†single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. Maybelline Volume Express ‚ÄúFalsies‚ÄĚ 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

CHEEKS: Wet n Wild blush in Heather Silk

FACE: Nada

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.

FOTD: Bedrock

23 Jun

Today’s look was inspired by Nicki Minaj’s makeup in the Young Money “Bedrock” music video . Her verse is only about 15 seconds long, so you can imagine how many times I had to watch the video to catch a glimpse of her face. The best shots of her makeup are about a minute & a half into the video. Those long bangs made it super hard to see her peepers, but I did my best. Whaddaya think?!

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I covered my inner lower eyelid (tearducts & all) in canary yellow mica powder (Coastal Scents). I blended the yellow into matte apple green, & then used magenta on my outer v (both from my Shany 120 palette). I used matte fuschia e/s (also Shany 120) to define my crease &  matte camel (WNW Vanity) to highlight my brow bone. Using my pencil brush, I added yellow & fushia eyeshadow below my waterline.

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.

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

I don’t have much to say about this one. The beauty of the crocus speaks for itself… ENJOY!

PRIMER: NYX HD e/s base

BASE: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I covered my lower eyelid in bright purple (Shany 120 palette), then I used canary yellow mica powder (Coastal Scents) on my tearducts to mimic the yellow stamen of the flower. I used a combination of dark purple & royal blue (also Shany 120 palette) on my outer v to mimic the royal purple on the tips of the crocus petals & 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 with Wet n Wild cream eyeliner in black. On my waterline I used Wet n Wild eyeliner pencil in lilac & followed it up with more royal blue e/s (Shany 120 palette).

FOTD: Sunshine on a cloudy day

7 Jun

No! I haven’t changed my hair (yet)… these pics were taken about¬†2 weeks ago. I was on canary yellow extra hard that week. I love this FOTD¬†because it’s a break from the norm; using a light color (yellow)¬†on the center of my eyelid & a darker color (gray)¬†on the tearducts & outer v. It was a PIECE OF CAKE, so¬†I strongly encourage you to try this look!!! ūüôā

PRIMER: Coastal Scents Shadow Worx Matte e/s primer

BASE: NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

SHADOW: I applied Twilight (by Ulta) to the inside & outside of my lower lid. In the center of my eyelid (right over the iris of my eyes) I applied canary yellow mica powder (by Coastal Scents). Then I applied matte camel from my crease to my brow bone (WNW Vanity palette).

OTHER DETAILS… I used CoverGirl single e/s in Smolder to define my eyebrows. I applied L’Oreal Collagen Mascara in Blackest Black to my eyelashes (& curled them). I defined my upper lashline with WetnWild cream eyeliner in black. On my waterline, I used WetNWild eyeliner pencil in black.

FACE: Estee Lauder pressed powder in Deep (05)

CHEEKS: Black Radiance sheer finish blush in Soft Honey (8305B) on the apples of my cheeks

LIPS: Carmex + Estee Lauder lip gloss in Rose
