FOTD: Shiny Shamrock!

.

Man I love days when I am off! I had this whole entire day to myself! (BF had work, neener neener!) So I woke up early this morning to my mom blowing up my cell phone, then she realized I was trying to sleep in and felt bad so she said she'd call me later, but of course I couldn't go back to sleep...so I just had me some yummy oatmeal cookies and started getting ready for my field trip to the MAC Pro Store!

Shayne, Mandy, Diane, and Genevieve, I ordered more jars which should be arriving hopefully this week, I will send your MAC Pigment Samples then! :)

I did another GREEN look (I love green!) using the new Milani wet/dry eyeshadows I bought from CVS, for this look I used "Shamrock" and "Bronze Doll". I love these eyeshadows! They have phenomenal color-payoff and they are so pretty both dry AND wet. (I used it wet for this look). I have always loved Milani, even before their new look/collection. I loved them so much I went back to CVS to get more colors!



Doesn't this pic look like I have short hair!?? I kinda like it, I think oneday I just wanna get some balls and just chop it off to a nice short bob, whatdya think?











My outfit to match! I bought this like 2 years ago and I still wear it! Forgot where I got it from...


I used MAC Paint Pot in "Cash Flow" all over the lid as a base and applied"Shamrock" wet on the lid just above the crease, and then contoured it with "Bronze Doll" (dry).

What I used:
Face:
- Physician's Formula Tinted Concealer
- StudioFinish Concealer NC30
- Silk Naturals Mineral Foundation (buttery gold)

Cheeks:
- EDM Blush in "Weekend Getaway"
- Milani "Luminous" Blush
- MAC Beauty Powder in "Drizzlegold"

Eyes:
- MAC Paint Pot in "Cash Flow" (all over the lid as a base)
- Milani Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in "Shamrock" applied WET on the lid just above the crease
- Milani Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in "Bronze Doll" contoured right above "Shamrock"
- Nixie Liquid Eyeliner in Black
- L'Oreal Carbon Black Telescopic Mascara
- AVON Jumbo Eye Pencil in "Celadon" on lower lashline

Lips:
- NYX Lipgloss in "Beige" (it's NOT beige! it's PINK but they call it Beige)

Wow that look is so pretty!! Looks incredible :)

How do you use shadows (not pigments) wet? I put my wet brush on a MAC eyeshadow once and it made the eyeshadow harden, making it completely unusable. Do you put your wet brush directly on the shadow? How does that work? Thanks a million!!

Hi Anonymous! Thank you doll!

I had someone ask me this question so im also going to post this as a reader question, MAC eyeshadows (as well as other eyeshadows) are not really meant to be applied wet since they are very well pigmented as it is, but what I do is spritz a tiny bit of water of mixing medium from a spray bottle onto my sponge tipped applicator or brush and LIGHTLY rub it on the eyeshadow gradually picking up more color. I know some gals also scrape a tiny bit of eyeshadow from the pan to work with...

This is gorgeous! Now I DEFINITELY have to pick up those new Milani Wet/Dry shadows! You look gorgeous dear and this green really makes your hazel contacts pop! Love it! :D

Emilee @ GMM said...

You look gorgeous, and that's such a cute outfit. :)

Anne said...

baaaaaah don't chop your hair off!!! i love your hair... it's sooo pretty esp. when it's a tad bit messy. you know you got the sexy sex hair going on. heehee.

why does the CVS around me sucks? and there's a buttload of them around northridge too!

Julie said...

YES! An EOTD with Cash Flow!

Ooh, greens look great on you. I need to buy me some green eye shadows and pigments, LOL

Sofia said...

Woah! I love every color on you! You look amazing. :D

If you're ballsy enough; Cut that hair off! I think it'd look awesome on you.

SweetlySeductive said...

I can see why you totally adore greens, because they look heavenly on you! This FOTD totally blew me away, because you look AMAZING! So much so, that I had to stop lurking, and actually comment, for once! Your eyes -- wow, just stunning! Love that lippie, as well. :)

said...

Another pretty green EOTD, loooove it! Cash Flow helps a lot to make the look sooo cute and fresh!

MakeupByRenRen said...

hey sis, gorgeous as usual! can't wait to see what you got from the pro store, so exciting!

I love that look on you. Really fresh pretty eyes! Intensifies your brown eyes. It's clean and simple.

Nic Nic said...

i love that green on you! looks so pretty, and your outfit is cute too! You and Christiana are queen of blending hehe.

mayaari said...

haha now I definitely have to stop by another CVS to get those Milani shadows - that shade of green is absolutely gorgeous! Question - when you used Cash Flow as your base, did you apply it all over the lid (lashline to browbone) or on the bottom of the lid (lashline to crease)?

Short hair is definitely nice, not that I'm biased or anything =P I think you'd look good with one of those bobs that angles out longer in the front.

Mrs. Lynne said...

cute sis! i think you should do a shoulder length a-line! you'd look so hot in that. i miss my short hair. it was just a tiny bit longer than you bf's hair. boy, it was so easy to get ready in the morn! Hah.

Alice said...

Hi Vanessa! Green is definitely a great color, probably one of my newest favorite colors so I love that you do a lot of looks with it and with St. Patrick's Day coming up next month, it will be a great opportunity to really go all out with green hehe. I hope your week started off well!

Anne said...

Xuanie said...

brittni said...

I have a question -

What type of NYX lipsticks did you get for 99 cents the other day and where at? Are they available at cherryculture for 99 cents, and if not, please still tell me the kind so that Ican look them up. There was a specific pink I adored.

THANKS!

Vanessa said...

Brittni- I got the NYX lipsticks from Cherry Culture

You're a PRO in my book! Your eyes look amazing!

psychoexgirlfriend said...

Vanessa, you look gorgeous in green. And the dress is super cute! YAY for days off. Unfortunately, it wasn't a holiday in BC. :(

Anonymous said...

Wow! i love that look! green looks great on you. I'm thinking about ordering some nyx glosses online. Do you know the full name of that gloss since they have many different types of lipglosses? thanks!

Vanessa said...

Aww thank you ladies!

Anonymous- I listed the name of the gloss, it's really Beige, that's what's labeled on the lipgloss...

Charlene said...

I was hoping you could do a look with the lily white on the lid so i can see how white it is in comparison to just looking like a light silver...(that's how the swatch looked)...i'm looking for a nice 'white' eyeshadow but when i swatch what seems white, it comes off as light silver...

that green looks AMAZING on you! great inspiration for a green look ^_^
