Yellow and Brown Eyes

Hi Bellas,

Yay it's finally Friday! This week was slow for me for some reason. It's going to be a busy weekend for me though, yikes! Saturday morning I have to do wedding makeup at 8am...i'm so not a morning person, lol. That evening I'm doing a makeup bar. For those of you who aren't familar, they mentioned this in the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Basically, a group of women come together, have cocktails, get their makeup done and a photographer takes some pics. It's a really great idea to do something fun with the girls. I'm doing that from 5-9pm. Then I have a shoot on Sunday morning. I'm going to be tuckered out! But better busy than not. The shoot on Sunday is going to be a collaboration where I'm going to do something really creative makeup wise...I'm still thinking of outrageous ideas. Any ideas?

Anywho, I went out with some of my sorors last Friday night and decided to try a new color combination. I really liked the way it came out. It has an earthy feel to it. Chrome yellow eyeshadow from MAC and I have never been good friends until I found a good base from Ben Nye. Without it, it refuses to show up! We went to go see Superkrew from America's Best Dance Crew perform at my alma mater, but the line was insane so we went home instead, lol. What a waste of makeup! Oh well, at least I took pics!

Here's What I Used:

-soft ochre paint pot
-Ben Nye yellow cream colour
-gesso e/s
-chrome yellow e/s
-brown down e/s
-fascinating kohl pencil (can't see it in the picture but I lined my waterline with the time I took the picture it was hours later and faded)
-Revlon liquid liner
-ardell lashes
-rimmel professional brow pencil and cork e/s on brows

-Rimmel foundation primer
-select coverup concealer NW35
-studio tech foundation NC43 (haven't used this in a while...I forgot how much I like it!)
-CRC translucent powder
-gold deposit msf
-shy beauty beauty powder blush
-petticoat msf

-cork lip pencil
-NARS orgasm lipgloss

Have a great weekend! If you have any suggestions of outrageous makeup, please leave a comment and let me know!

Till next time, Ciao Bellas!

a beauty bar-- cute! i hoped one day to open up a business with the same basic concept minus alcohol LOL. the traveling version sounds better for the money, i'll have to admit. have fun!

outrageous makeup? hmmm... i've been wanting to try black face.. like canvasing the face with black face paint and go all glam on themakeup. bright orange lips.. extravangant eyes and lashes.. angles..??? can't wait to see what you come up with.
