bitter green ....

This make up was done over a swollen eyelid , hence the wrinkles on the lid (no I am not in denial : I am not aging :-0)
It seems that my allergy to nailpolish has decided to strike again : bouhou ! How come something you put on your nails end up making you look like a frog (ultimately funny joke as I am a french girl ...)
So a NYX e/s from a NYX trio (I can't remember the name : I depotted it), humid from MAC as a crease color, shroom from MAC as an highlight, a random light brown color from NYX to blend....All of this on top of TFSI and GOSH waterproof e/s (love that moss)

Fierce liner !

This look was a mix of 2 looks : one done by Miss Chievous (blue lagoon look) and one by Enkore (retro look)
I used an elf Palette (the one offered when you purchase Sigma brushes) : there are 4 colors from matte white to black with glitter.
As usual, I used TFSI as a base, NYX Jumbo pencil in milk, the white shadow as a lid color, the darker silver color as a line up my crease to create the retro effect, blending with the paler silver into the lid and highlight color. The sparkly black was used on lower lash line and to create an outer V on the lid.
Sorry for the quality of the 2nd picture : was obviously taken inside at night but it was freezing outside and the few pictures I took were blurry ....Plus my neighboors now think I am crazy , taking pictures of my eyes in my driveway :-0

Dark colors and nude lips

I am such a lazy blogger ... I've been taking pics lately but would not bother publishing them so you're gonna find some looks that I did last week...
This one , quite dark : TFSI as a base, Gosh wateproof e/s in Love that moss under humid from MAC. Crease color : my beloved twinks and a random beige color to blend with the highlight color : dazzelight from MAC
Skin : a mix of Revlon colorstay in beige sand and Gosh Extreme wear in golden, blush (a pink sample from Coastal scents), highlight on cheeks, nose, chin : Vanilla pigment from MAC.
Very forest-like-look !

Sally Hansen nail polish in flirt : swatch

So another swatch from my growing collection of Xtreme wear from Sally Hansen : this one is called Flirt and it's a deep burgundy colour. As said before, those gems are impossible to beat in terms of quality/price. I tried a silver one a few days ago and it was as if I was wearing liquid metal on my nails : gorgeous....I think I like Flirt even more than my beloved plum attraction from Revlon that I kept on buying each time I finished it. Convinced ?

Lakers' make up : tribute to my brother

my brother as a teenager was a big fan of basketball. I remembered him wearing this big T-shirt golden yellow and purple so proudly ;-)
So here is a soft version of his T-shirt using Champagne NYX e/s over yellow NYX jumbo pencil as a base, NYX purple e/s in the crease and a little bit of a HIP purple from L'Oreal duos (Reckless) to darken the outer V and deepen the crease. The perfect shroom (MAC) as an highlight and Marcelle volume precision as mascara (My Holy grail !). I lined my waterline with a black pencil but added some of the same purple from the HIP duo to soften it (plus it settles the product )
Hope you enjoyed it !
