Golden Green – Holiday Look

This is my first holiday look of the season. I didn’t even really mean to put together a holiday look. I just wanted to try out my MUFE Aqua Creams in 22 Emerald Green and 12 Golden Copper. When I was trying to decide what to put on top of them, I realized I should use Half-Baked on the outer half and crease, and then the lighter yellow gold from the Avon quad. I think it’s kind of pretty, the way the green peeks out from beneath the shadows.

This is what the Aqua Creams look like on my eye by themselves.

While I really think it’s  nice on occasion to have my skin show through with just a clear finishing powder on top, I also really think I need some concealer or something under my eyes. Though I always feel like my undereyes look worse in pictures than they do in person.

Also, I’ve been trying out the Laura Mercier Eyebrow Pencil in Soft Black and I don’t think I like it as well as I like using Urban Decay Zero eyeliner, which is sad. I feel like Soft Black is too brown.

While I like using brow powders, lately I’ve found it faster to use a pencil and then an eye brow brush to do my brows. What do you use?

      Love it! I really love that lip color on you too. You’ve been rockin’ the Avon lately haha it looks awesome. I saw where you asked earlier if they have any mascaras with large brushes and for that I’d definitely recommend the Supershock Mascara. The brush for it sort of reminds me of the Covergirl Lash Blast one, just not as fat. The Supershock mascara was one of the most popular items in my experience with selling Avon..I heard lots of good things though I never tried that particular one myself. Hope that helps :)

        I’ll add the Supershock Mascara to my list :) I need big brushes like the Lash Blast one.

      Oyeeee you just reminded me I haven’t filled my brows in for so long! My brush is even still clean and I washed them ages ago lol.

      It’s cool that your lid shade stayed green, I like it! Almost minty.
      I wore Half Baked today for you!!

      • Phyrra

        Yay for you wearing Half-Baked!
        Yeah I was trying to sort of lightly mist the golds on top of the green base.

        I really enjoy filling in my brows.

      Love the gold crease :D I may have to steal this.

      My Prestige brow pencil has a little crappy brush on the end to smudge and blend the colour so I just use that >_>

        Go for it! It’ll be pretty on you ;)

      I love this look! I am going to totally copy it.
      I have non-existent white blonde eyebrows, so I always need to put something in it.
      Sometimes I use brow powder, but my ultimate is Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel, its seriously a revelation for me.

      • Phyrra

        Yay I hope it looks fantastic on you :)
