Today I have the look I wore on mah face to acompany the nails I showed you yesterday. It's not often the opportunity presents itself for me to have a LOT of fun with colorful make-up and this past Saturday was the perfect chance for me to play with some of my favorite Lime Crime eye shadows.
I will also go into detail about my foundation routine. I've had a few girls ask me and I realized that I've been terrible about going into my actual foundation steps and such. Bottom line: I absolutely had SO much fun playing with these colors and I am so happy with how this turned out!
Onto the make up! On my eyes I started with a primer base of NYX Primer Pot in Skintone. I'm calling this my Fruit Punch Sunrise Look :D.
My brows were filled in with Milani Eyebrow Felt Tip Pen in Deep and for my mascara I used Maybelline's The Colossal Volume Express. This look was still going STRONG the morning after lol... I know naughty, naughty... I was tired when I got home lolol!
Now for my foundation... It goes like this. I start with a base of Reviva Lab's Make-up Primer. I swear by that stuff. I had only tried one other face primer ever, by Victoria's Secret.... Never noticed much of a difference. Now with the Reviva Labs make-up primer I get a smooth airbrushed looking surface. It's amazing! And one bottle will go a LONG way!
SO, then I follow that with a light layer of Garnier BB Cream. The next step is my bareMinerals(Original) in Medium Beige. I do light contouring with my Benefit Coralista Blush (MY FAVEEEEE!), Milani's Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar and NYX Bronzers, Illumunating in Narcissistic and Matte Deep. Once EVERYTHING is said and done I finish off my entire face with a very light layer of bareMinerals(original) Mineral Veil. I've been using bareMinerals products since early 2010. I just LOVE their powder foundations and the Mineral Veil is the perfect finishing touch.
And then here is a far away shot of my face of the night :D. My eyes look like Sunrises out of the ocean!
I wanna play with moar colors!!! I need to stop mentally blocking myself when it comes to make up. With this look I just went for it, very little planning and it turned out pretty neat! I just need to do this more often. I had so much fun playing with all the pretty colors and trying out loose pigments for the first time and it going so smoothly! *pats self in back* The scene on Saturday night was perfect for this make up!!
I hope you guys like! Thanks for stopping by!
