Beauty Look of the Day: It Ain’t Easy Being Green

Green eyeshadow

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.

Green eyeliner

  • 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

Natural Hair

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?

    I think your hair looks great and if you’re looking for more pigmented eye shadow can I recommend Urban Decay. :)
