A shade of the dramatic, where different is all there is.

Adventures in Candyland

So, it’s Saturday night and a couple of friends came over.  We had an urge to play with some bright makeup but my friend was suffering from an eye allergy so we improvised.  I did the eye makeup and she did the lip makeup.  We hope you enjoy our Watermelon Makeup and Adventures in Candyland!

For Her Lips

She used Make Up Forever Pure Pigment in No 12.  (Extremely hot pink)  Using a clear gloss and lip brush she mixed the pigment into the gloss and applied all over the bottom lip and half way up the top lip.  Using Sephora’s Crayon Jumbo 12H lip pencil in green she filled in the top portion of her lip (you can see what I am referring to here).  Then with a black liquid eyeliner she created seeds along her bottom lip to complete the Watermelon Lips Look.

For Shannon’s Eyes

Starting out with Mary Kay Eye Primer all over the lids, I quickly started covering the entire lid in the Make Up Forever Pure Pigment No 12 (the same one that was used in the lips above).  I used Lime Eyeshadow from the Pro line of MAC to create a thick heavy line under my eye.  I then used the same green jumbo Sephora crayon that were used on the lips to create the dual toned textured look for the watermelon rind.  The Lime eyeshadow seemed a little too light, so I then took Kelly Eyeshadow from the Pro line of MAC to blend into the jumbo crayon and make the lines look a little less harsh.  Topping off the look with black eyeliner, mascara and false lashes – the Watermelon eye makeup was complete.

We wanted to incorporate some fruit into our pictures, but all we had here around the house were bananas…and well, that just wasn’t going to happen.  So we scrounged up some Runts to add a “splash” of colour and had ourselves some fun.

I am not sure you could’ve had a better Saturday night then we did.  We highly recommend giving yourself a Candy Shower at the next possible  convenience.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
