Tutorial: Teal Eye FOTD w/ “Candy Yum Yum”

It’s like 2 am and I am still awake…LOL. I have to wake up early tomorrow (err…later today) because I am going wedding dress shopping finally! If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen the dress I had in mind, so that’s what I will be trying on tomorrow along with other dresses, I hope I find one I like soon!

Also, many of you have asked for a HAIR TUTORIAL from my last post (the side bun/chignon), so I’ll try to post and do a video on it soon! I also had a wedding look request, so this hairstyle can definitely also be used for a wedding because it’s so romantic and elegant. But honestly it’s really simple to do can’t wait to show you ladies!

Anyway, here’s a teal look I did, also using “Candy Yum Yum” lipstick. I started off with MUFE’s Flash Pot in White as a base and blended it out all over the lid. I also used ALL mineral eyeshadows for this look, as I am trying to use some items that have been sitting in my drawer! Aromaleigh’s e/s in “Severina” on half of the lower lid, then used Purely Cosmetics’s eyeshadows in “Sapphire Night” and “Black Chameleon” to deepen the crease and outer corners. Then highlighted the brow bone and blended any harsh lines with MAC e/s in “Ricepaper” and “Motif”. For the lower lashline, I used UD Eyeliner in “Graffiti”.

I also included a tutorial :)

FOTD: Using “Fashion Mews” l/s

**Answered C-Box Questions :)

This is a look I did last Friday sporting the “Fashion Mews” lipstick from the Hello Kitty collection. It’s a light pink with a nice undertone in it so it’s not dead looking on your lips. I have done a teal & black smokey look before, but it wasn’t as vibrant as this one…

For the eyes I used MAC “Too Dolly” e/s on the inner corner of my lid, Ben Nye’s Eyeshadow in “Jade”, BFTE (Beauty From the Earth) Mineral eyeshadow in “Jaded”, Purely Cosmetics e/s in “Spring Green” and MMBB (My Minerals Bath & Body) Eyeshadow in “Smokey Green” (even though it’s a nice shimmery black to me!). I also used Urban Decay eyeliner in “Electric” on my lower lashline for a little pop of color.

What I used:
[Face]

Purely Cosmetics Mineral Foundation in “Olive Beige”

[Cheeks]
– MAC Fafi “Hipness” Blush

[Eyes]
– MAC “Too Dolly” e/s (LE) on the inner corner of the eye
– Ben Nye e/s in “Jade” on lower half of the lid
– A bit of PC e/s in “Spring green” blended with BFTE “Jaded” on top of Ben Nye e/s (applied slightly wet using a sponge tip applicator)
– MMBB “Smokey Green” applied dry on the outer-V and contour
– MAC e/s in “Ricepaper” as highlight
– Urban Decay Eyeliner in “Electric” on lower lashline
– MAC Fluidline in “Blacktrack”
– L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara in “Blackest Black”

[Lips]
– MAC lipstick in “Fashion Mews”(LE)
– Touch of “Fleur de light” lipglass from the MAC Holiday Lipgloss set

FOTD: Using MAC Overrich Pigment in “Antique Green”

This is just a simple look I did using the new “Antique Green” pigment, I ended up returning the full-size and just got a sample of it instead since I doubt I would even use 1/4 of the jar in my lifetime, but nontheless it is a pretty color! What I like about it, is that it has a bit of color, but it’s not so overpowering like “Teal” pigment, it is more subdued and actually is another alternative to a smoky look. I think a dupe of the Antique Green pigment would be TheSheSpace pigments in either Chasing Mystery or Moral Enemy (although Moral Enemy is more on the green side).

What I used:
[Face]
– Sephora Makeup Primer
– MAC StudioFinish Concealer
– Purely Cosmetics Mineral Foundation in “Olive Beige”

[Cheeks]
– MAC Blush in “Coygirl”
– MAC “Sculpt” Powder to contour hallow parts of the cheek

[Eyes]
– Ben Nye Eyeshadow in “Jade” on lid as a base and on lower lash line
– MAC Pigment in “Antique Green” applied wet with a sponge-tip applicator on the lower half of the lid.
– Mix of MAC e/s in “Carbon” and “Knight Divine” on outer-V
– MAC Fluidline in “Blacktrack”
– Blinc Kiss Me Mascara

[Lips]
– NYX Round Lipgloss in “Ballerina Pink”
