FOTD: Green look using “Princess Caraboo”

A reader requested I do a look using the “Princess Caraboo” eyeshadow from my lime crime post a few days ago, so here was a look I did this morning. Oddly enough it looks like a green look I did a few posts ago but used totally different products for this look, goes to show that there are so many dupes out there!

The BF was sweet enough to get me some pepper spray for protection, LOL and it’s PINK! I didn’t even know they came in colors! Years ago I had one, but it was all black…so I GUESS he’s in some ways like Edward, always trying to protect me, PUHAHAHA!



What I used:

[Face]
– MAC Prep + Prime Base Primer
– MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC35
– Purely Cosmetics Mineral Foundation in “Olive Beige”

[Cheeks]
Flirt! Cosmetics Bronzer in “Golden Minx” for contouring
– MAC Blush in “Nuance”

[Eyes]
– Smashbox Photo Finish Lid Primer (on right eye)
– UDPP on left eye (for a comparison)
– MAC e/s in “Sour Lemon” and “Eye Popping” on the inner corners
– MAC e/s in “Bio Green” (PRO) on the middle of the lid
– Lime Crime e/s in “Princess Caraboo” on the outer-V and contour
– NYX “Black” on lower part of the outer-V
– MAC e/s in “Shroom” with a touch of “Goldmine” as highlight on brow bone
– MAC Fluidline in “Blacktrack”
– L’Oreal XXL mascara in “Blackest Black”
– UD Eyeliner in “Zero” on waterline

[Lips]
– MAC Cremesheen in “Creme d’ Nude”

FOTD: St. Patrick’s Day Face

I will be posting the show pics tomorrow (or tonight), but here is the St. Patrick’s Day look I did yesterday.

What I used:

[Face]
– YSL Flash Radiance Skin (primer, will review soon)
– MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC30
– Cargo Concealer #2
– Buff’d Minerals in “Almond” and “Chamois” (mixed)

[Cheeks]
– MAC Blush in “Springsheen”

[Eyes]
– MAC “Kelly Green” Pigment (pro) applied wet with a sponged eyeshadow applicator on lower half of the lid
– MAC “Humid” e/s and MAC “Emerald Green” pigment on outer-V and contour
– MAC “Carbon” e/s on outer-V
– MAC “Ricepaper” as highlight

[Lips]

FOTD & Tutorial: Smokey Forest Green

A reader requested a smokey green look, the photos don’t do it justice since the flash made it look a lot lighter than it is in person…also I used MAC e/s in “Bio-Green” which is a PRO only e/s, but you can get it at the MAC PRO stores without being a pro member. I think the closest dupe to it is either MAC pigment in “Kelly Green” & Ben Nye’s “Chartreuse” (type it in the search box for a swatch/comparison).

– MAC “Bio-Green” e/s (PRO) on lower half of the lid
– MAC “Humid” e/s on outer-V and crease
– MAC “Fresh Green Mix” (dark side) near the middle of the lid
– MAC pigment in “Forest Green” (LE, from last year’s “cool” pigment set) on outer-V
– MAC “Ricepaper” e/s as highlight
– MAC Fluidline in “Blacktrack”
– L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara

[Lips]
– MAC “Myth” lipstick as base
– MAC “Propagate” lipstick (LE)
– MAC “Beaux” Lipglass from this year’s Neutral lipglass set

EOTD: Butterfly Eyes

I know Nabi had a contest recently on doing a fotd using a butterfly as inspiration, but making it wearable, so even though I didn’t enter her contest I decided to do a look anyway, using a butterfly that was in a bouquet of fake flowers I have in my room.

Sorry no full face pics as I just did my eyes and skipped foundation and all that…

no eyeliner and mascara…

What I used:
– MAC e/s in “Gesso” all over the lid
– Pressed MAC “Kelly Green” pigment
– MAC e/s in “Carbon” and Milani “Storm” on outer-V and contour
– MAC e/s in “Femme-Fi” (LE) as highlight
– MAC Fluidline in “Blacktrack”
– L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara

FOTD & Tutorial: Gilded Green Pigment

I have acquired so many eye products lately so I will be doing many FOTD’s because some are just really pretty colors! Here is one I did using the “Gilded Green” pigment from the Colour Forms Collection (MAC). At first I got “Tea Time”, but after seeing it again in person, I just HAD to get “Gilded Green”! (And because green is one of my favorite colors!)

I also used one of the Lustre Twins, “Ripe & Ready” with its twin, “Soft & Lush”, it’s such a pretty deep coral color.
