It’s Not Easy Being Green
One of my bridesmaids and her mother held a Bridal Shower for me yesterday. This meant a lot to me. Seeing as I am not from here originally, none of my family lives here in Ottawa and my Maid of Honour lives in Alberta as well. So they were sweet enough to make sure I still got a shower – they deserve a big huge thank you!! It really was a special day – thanks to all who were able to come!
Keeping with the theme of an Emerald Green wedding dress I gave myself some dramatic green eyes.
What I used for this look:
Skin > I applied Clinique’s Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer in Shade 01 all over my face and then sealed the look with MAC’s Studio Careblend Pressed Powder in Light Plus.
Cheeks > Benetint Lip & Cheek Stain by benefit
Lips > I started with Benetint Lip & Cheek Stain by benefit that I used on my cheeks and then topped the look with Buxom Lips Bare Escentuals in Leslie
Eyes > Primed with Mary Kay’s Eye Primer. Then I applied Kelly Eyeshadow (a MAC Pro colour) all over my lids, blending up just slightly into the crease. Then, using Humid Eyeshadow by MAC, I hit the crease (and slightly up onto the brown bone) as well as the outside of my eye. Wanting to intensify the look further, I used Black Tied Eyeshadow by MAC (a black eyeshado with silver sparkles) to the outside corner of my eye and through the crease as well, leaving a hint of Humid throughout. To soften the look slightly and bring it all together, I lightly dusted Forgery Eyeshadow by MAC (a very soft silver) with a very fluffy brush all over the lid to blend and soften. Using Forgery Eyeshadow again, I highlighted the inside corner of my eye as well as the brow bone. Underneath my eye, I recreated the same fading look using Black Tied, Humid, Kelly and Forgery. I then used Blacktrack Fluidline by MAC as my eyeliner on both the top as well as my waterline.
Brows > As always, I used Mystery Eyeshadow by MAC to fill them in.
Lashes > Hotties by Ardell
This look was a lot of fun and can be recreated with any colours you like.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend – I sure did!!
