Hey all! It's been so long since I've done a makeup post, but a few nights ago I had a random urge of creativity. I played around with my palette called 'Manly' (lol), it's very similar to 120 palettes by brands such as BH cosmetics. It offers a huge range of blues and greens, so I knew it was the perfect palette for this look.
My foundation was Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation in the new shade cashew, however I applied that about 13 hours ago, so I quickly refreshed it up by spraying some of MAC's Fix Plus spray on a stippling brush, with a small drop of MAC's Face & Body foundation in C5. I set my my t-zone with Ben Nye's Banana powder - A great mattifying powder with a yellow base.
I used ELF's blush in 'Berry Merry' - my new favorite blush. I can't believe I prefer it to my pricier Nars ones!
For highlight, I used Nars' cream blush highlighter in 'Gold member', and I contoured my cheekbones using Tom Ford's shade & illuminate in 'Intensity 2'.
I primed my eyes using MAC's cream eyeshadow in 'Painterly'. Using a fluffy blush ( I used a MAC 224) I applied a bright green on my crease and blended that well. Using a smaller blush, I then packed on a darker teal color all over the eyelid, and blended it with the brighter green. Every time I blend the shadows, I always reapply more product on top as blending sometimes takes away the intensity. Next I used a tiny amount of a matte black and placed that onto the outer corners of my eyes, and then blended that through. I did the same steps with my lower lash line.
Then I lined the top of my eyes, applied mascara and added a layer of lashes.
Using eyelash glue and a small eyeliner brush, I then created a line above the false eyelash and using the same brush, I dipped into glitter and packed the glitter on.
This was totally out of my comfort zone as I tend just to wear neutrals or a smokey eye, but I had so much fun and I'll definitely wear this out soon.
Thanks for reading!
