Beauty Blogger confession: I haven’t made myself up in weeks. Getting out of bed every morning has proved to be a mission but after giving my makeup stash a good spring cleaning, I came across some goodies I haven’t used in awhile. So I was inspired (for a few days anyways!)
I’ve been meaning to do a look with green shadow for awhile now, especially when I bought some shades from Ulta a few months back. Blue and Pink has always been my favorite colors to play with but I wanted to see if I could pull this bold color off. Life got crazy so I never got around to it so I used my new found motivation (and energy) to put together a day look using different shades of green. I went with a really neutral lip gloss so I didn’t have too much going on. I admit the eyes weren’t as bold as I wanted them to be but now that I’m really digging this color I’m the hunt for some shadows that will give me the deep pigmentation I want.
- Ulta Eyeshadow in Verdigris on the eyelids
- Ulta Eyeshadow in Envy in the creases and into the brow bone
- Dark Green shadow from the Cool as a Cucumber Palette from Wet-n-Wild on the outer corners
- Glimmersticks eye liner from Avon in Emerald
- Buxom Mascara in black
- Avon Cream blush
- Glazewear lip gloss from Avon in Sweet Maple
With my hair, I took a different approach from my usual wash and goes. After using my leave in conditioner, I divided my hair into big sections. I applied Shea Moisture’s Curling Smoothie, a little olive oil to seal in the moisture, and then the Curling Souflee from Shea Moisture to give my hair some hold. After combing my hair out, I put each section into big loose twists and let my hair dry overnight. Not only did doing this stretch my hair and give my hair a cute curl pattern, I found that my hair stayed moisturized much longer so I don’t have to use a lot of products throughout the week. Even on my laziest days I can pull this off and that gives this routine extra brownie points!
So wassup ladies?? How was your weekend?
