Green & Gold

I wanted to a fun look with Flip, since I’ve not worn it in forever. I decided that green was the way to go, so I used Inglot 57, too. My hope is that this doesn’t look to Christmas-y since I tend to think of green and gold as Christmas colors.

I started with TFSI. I applied Bisque with a large ecoTools blender brush to the upper crease and browbone, except for directly under the eyebrows. Then with a fluffy lid brush (I used a MAC 213 today), I applied Flip to the lid. I used UD’s crease brush with Inglot 57 on the outer corner of the lid and outer crease. I used my MAC 224 blender to blend the green out. With a mini-chisel detail brush, I applied Telepathy to the edge of the upper crease, basically where 57 and Bisque met, and also along the inner crease. I used Revlon’s brow enhancer in 001 gold under my eyebrows and at the inner corner of my eyes. I used Tokidoki’s Perfetto liner in Sabochan along my upper lash line and outer lower lash line. I have to say, I REALLY like the shape of the Perfetto liner tip. It gives a great line and I find it easier to use than the Nyx pen and other pens that I’ve tried like this. I applied the Revlon 104 dark blonde brow pencils to define my brows and then took my stiff angled eye shadow brush to soften the edges a bit. I finished off with my favorite mascaras, one coat of each.



This picture with Phaedra in it made me laugh, so I had to share it with you.


She looks really cute here, too. This morning was overcast and rainy so not very much natural light in my home.

I need to review the Crown brushes that I purchased from Hautelook. In short, they’re ok, but they shed. I was actually surprised that they shed.

      Aw, Phaedra always looks so regal, even with her bum showing, haha! Tthe green and gold don’t remind me of Christmas at all. I think the green is dark and forest-y enough to not give that vibe. Also, I love how you wear the bronzer; it makes your face look really sculpted.

        Aww thanks! I was hoping it’d look good as blush.
