FOTN: teal and green eyes

Hi Bellas,

The other night I was catching up on my youtube vids and I was inspired by a youtuber out there named Eily. She's just fab! I recreated her recent teal look and added my own twist.

You know blues and greens are my fav! Next time, I'll try foiling the pigments and shadows to make the colors really pop.

I used my airbrush system to do foundation. I had to do a new color mix since I got a slight tan in Costa Rica...when I mean slight, very very light tan, lol, since it rained most of the time! I ended up combining two colors to make my mix: 1/3 number 8 mixed with 3/2 number 7. I love the way that airbrush foundation offers a lot of coverage but feels like you're not wearing anything.

Here's what I used (All MAC unless otherwise specified):

-Laura Mercier oil-free primer
-Temptu S/B airbrush foundation - 007 & 008 mixed
-Camera Ready Cosmetics blush
-vanilla pigment as a highlight

-delft paint pot
-olive green pigment
-gorgeous gold e/s
-nylon e/s
-meet the fleet e/s
-blacktrack fluidline
-pop blue eye pencil
-model co. lashes in #21
-zoomlash mascara

-NYX Iced Coffee jumbo lip pencil
-viva glam VI lipglass

I took these pics after midnight...I think I was tired cuz one of my eyes is bigger than the other in these pics, lol. And yup, that's the boyfriend sleeping in the background...I threw a blanket on top of him to cover him up, lol.

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!
