Parakeet FOTD & Lumiere Pre-Brush Buy Arrived!


Lately I have been buying some bright, and I mean BRIGHT eyeshadows, and i've been wanting to use them and finally had a chance to! This look reminded me of a pair of parakeets my cousin used to own, they were both yellow and green with a tinge of blue feathers. I used my new "Parrot" eyeshadow on a little part of my lid however blue mixed with yellow makes green, so it just ended up blending with "Wondergrass", so instead I used it on my lower lashline.


What I used:

- EoB Airbrush Primer
- MMBB Medium/Dark Beige Foundation

- Everyday Minerals "Email Me"

- MAC Paint Pot in "Painterly" (all over the lid)
- MAC e/s in "Chrome Yellow" (lower half of the lid above the crease)
- MAC e/s in "Eyepopping" (middle of the lid)
- MAC e/s in "Wondergrass" (on outer half of the lid)
- ULTA eyeshadow in "Shell" as highlight
- MAC e/s in "Parrot"on outer-V and lower lashline
- Indelible Gel Eyeliner in "Black Out"
- Covergirl Lash Exact Mascara


- AVON Lipgloss in "Chic Mauve"


I also got my Lumiere Pre-Buy Brushes finally! Long Baby Kabuki and Long Handle Kabuki, they are suuppppper soft! I love 'em!

And I also got my Valerie cosmetics blushes today in "Smoking Mocha" and "Coquette", gorgeous colors with a hint of shimmer.

Wow, your eyes do remind me of a parakeet. :D hehe. A really pretty parakeet! :D I'm not comfortable enough with bright colors to wear them that often. :P I've been trying to practice but I shy away from the. LOL. You use bright colors so well though! and they look really pretty on you. :D btw... nice brushes. ;)

Julie said...

The colours look so bright but you make them look so gorgeous! All you're missing is that red colour on the front of the parrot/parakeet?

I'm liking the look of those two blushes. Do you know if Val Cosmetics ship internationally?

Btw, did you get my email?


Vanessa said...

Hi Julie- Not sure if Val ships internationally, you can check out her site!
