I had a bit of time last night, before heading out to a friends Birthday thing, so I figured I’d play with my pigments. They just don’t get enough love, as I have only transferred a few of my MAC pigments into pill containers (as seen HERE). I really should get on that, then I COULD get more use out of them.
Anyway, the point is, I figured I would use my Naked Cosmetics Rainforest Pigment Stack. This was given to me by a blogging friend, who bought it at IMATS. You can read more about that HERE.
Well, I wanted to do green, as I have this fondness for green looks.
– Annabelle Cosmetics Smoothie in Absinthe-Minded
– MAC Pigment Antique Green
– Annabelle Cosmetics Shadow in So Foxy
– Annabelle Cosmetics Shadow in Buff Naked
– Naked Cosmetics Rainforest Stack in #2 and #6
– MAC Mixing Medium that I decanted into a smaller container. Easier to manage
I applied UDPP all over the lid. Smudged out Absinthe-Minded over it. I mixed #6 and the Mixing Medium, then applied to the 2/3 of the other part of the eye. I then added #2, dry, in the inner 1/3 of the eye. I wanted to darken out the outer part a bit, so I added Antique Green, and then lightly outlined the outer part with So Foxy.You can’t really see the So Foxy, but that was the point I guess…like it would define it a bit more, but not in your face…yes…I meant it that way. I lined my eyes with a black eyeliner, and added lashes (Mesmoreyes 218 I’ve gotten many uses out of these. But I think they are on their last run. I messed it up when I cleaned them today >_<).I lined the lower lid with Antique Green, wet. I think it turned out alright. I need to remember to try and blend wet pigments immediately, as it got really difficult to blend when it was dry.
Then today (Saturday), I needed to spend some time at the library (I didn’t last long as I am feeling…under the weather). As I was feeling, Blah, I figured I would do my face before heading out. I wanted to wear Milani Rose Hip, so needed to keep the eyes on the downlo.
– Naked Cosmetics Rainforest Stack #4
– Naked Cosmetics Blushing Bronze Stack #4
– Milani Rose Hip
– Annabelle Buff Naked
– Gosh Cosmetics eyeshadow shimmering & waterproof stick in Love that Beige (? I think, can’t remember)
– MAC Plush Lash
I smudged Love that Beige over the lid, applied RF#4 wet to the lid. I then pat on BB#4 on the inner part of the eye. I find that wearing on the inner corner makes it more wearable, than applying it on the outer (at least for me). I used Buff Naked to blend out the edges. Slapped on a pair of lashes, and added the Plush Lash in brown. You can’t really tell, but I lined the lower lid with RF#4. Not too crazy, couldn’t really see the colours cause I didn’t go high enough. But it helped to keep things more on the natural level, allowing me to add the pop of colour when I slapped on Rose Hip.
I have a empty palette coming to me soon, so maybe I will press pigments…but I have been saying that for YEARS now, so…we will see.
Hope you all have a great weekend~
