It Was Suppose To Be Simple

So Catherine from Strawberry Mochi suggested me to do a green smokey eye for my birthday dinner. I didn't do that then but I decided to try it out a couple of days ago. Here is what I came up with.

I used ELF single in Sage all over the lid but that wasn't green enough - it was very olive. So then I took the green from the Covergirl quad and placed a bit of that in the center of the lid. Then I took Milani's Java Bean on the crease and outer V. Unfortunately it wasn't dark enough so then I took Covergirl's Brown Smolder and darken it. Then I blended everything out with mark's Bambi and then highlighted my brow bone using NYX's Champagne. A bit more complicated than I thought!! Finally - gave myself some light glowy cheeks with Milani's Luminous and berry lips with Wet n Wild's Wine Room.

On another note, I've been trying out the ELF primer... so far... well I won't spoil it but I've only been using it twice so no accurate judgment yet. Plus, I'm planning to compare it to UDPP and naked lid. It'll be a while but no worries, I'm very excited to do it.

Also, if I reach 100 followers, I'm thinking I might have a giveaway :) I hope it will be good - but again, I will probably have lower end prizes... sorry!


  1. awww...this is very pretty. did your bday passed already? belated happy birthday!

  2. This is a pretty look! I love those colors on you! Are the mark shadows worth it to buy? I know they aren't expensive but I don't know if mark/Avon does returns if I don't like a product and I want to make sure before I go buy a few of the shades I was eyeing earlier this month. Thanks for sharing your look!

  3. This is really pretty on you!!! I totally have had times like that where I'm trying to create a specific look and I keep having to tweak it - I think you really made it work though! Looks gorgeous on you. :D
