Looks – Bright Greens and Teals, Over the Top

Just had some fun playing around with the mineralize duos and went for something more over the top than anything else 😉 I wanted to see how the green would play over a very green base. I also picked up two new duos and two new blushes to play with, which I’ll share with you later today or tomorrow 🙂 (I have to work on my final draft of my argument to hand in tomorrow, so…!)

It’s Tuesday, and I’m feeling lazy as ever – all I want to do is play some Guitar Hero and bug Mellan. How are you guys pushing through the week?

I used True Chartreuse pigment on lid, Fresh Green Mix mineralize eyeshadow (solid side) (LE) all over lid, Shimmermoss eyeshadow on outer lid/crease, Sea & Sky mineralize eyeshadow (solid side) (LE) above crease, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow above crease, Nylon eyeshadow to highlight brow, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Warm Soul mineralize blush (LE) on cheeks. I wore Soft Lust lipstick (LE) with Tartlette lipglass (LE) on my lips.

Looks – Antique Green & Teals That Aren’t Over the Top

As you can tell, I’m trying to put together some looks using the pigments that will come out in Overrich! Today, I tried to kill two birds with one stone 😉 I think I like this look, though I feel like it’s actually subtler than I originally envisioned it would be (which is probably a good thing!).

We’re off to the MGM Grand for some much-raved-about (by my mom!) duck noodle soup. Nummos! The Palazzo for the afternoon (aka trip to Barneys)! So much food, I feel like I’ve eaten enough for a few weeks. I fly home tomorrow morning, but a part of me can’t wait to be back home, because I miss Mellan & the boy <3

Hope your Sunday is nice and easy 🙂

P.S. – If you need a liner that lasts all day, no smudging, fading, or migrating–go get yourself some Urban Decay 24/7 liners. STAT!

I used Vintage Gold pigment (LE) on inner half of lid, Antique Green pigment (LE) on outer half of lid, Lucky Green eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner/middle of lid, Patina eyeshadow on middle of lid, Newly Minted eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow above crease and on brow to highlight, UD Stash 24/7 liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer on cheeks. I wore Tiger Tiger lipstick (LE) with Rosy Coral PRO gloss and a touch of Dejarose lipglass (LE) on my lips.

Looks – Subtle Green & Teal with Lots of Pop

Macro makeup shots are not kind! I swear, I have my nose to the mirror, and the liner looks IMMACULATE! it’s totally even, straight, not a jagged bit in sight… but then when I’m in Photoshop to crop the photos, what do I see? Liner that’s kind of uneven! GRR.  Tried going for a more dramatic and noticeable crease today! 🙂  Overall, I liked the subtly of the lid color with the bolder crease and lash line colors!

It’s almost Friday!  I hope you have some fun Friday/weekend plans coming up!  My grandma is coming into town on Saturday, but then I’ll be spending my Sunday researching and writing an appellate brief for summer school (so fun! totally!).  What’s on your agenda for the weekend? (Can you tell that I really want it to be here already?)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Nylon eyeshadow on inner lid, Juxt eyeshadow on middle of lid, A Bluer Blue eyeshadow (LE) in crease and outer lid, Juxt eyeshadow above crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow bone, Aqualine liquidlast liner on upper lash line, A Bluer Blue eyeshadow (LE) over Aqualine liquidlast liner, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, Plushlash mascara on lashes.
