FOTD: Earth Day!


Here was my Earth Day FOTD, using Ben Nye's "Chartreuse", Pure Luxe's "Venom", MAC "Humid" eyeshadow, and of course "Bio Green". I also used a little bit of Ben Nye's "Sun Yellow" and "Aztec Gold" washed over the inner corners...

- MAC StudioFinish Concealer NC30
- Pure Luxe Foundation in "Warm Honey"
- MAC Sculpt & Shape Powder in Accentuate and Sculpt on cheek bones to contour

- MAC "Hipness" Blush
- EDM "Waffle Cone"

Eyes: (all applied DRY)

- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Ben Nye (BN) e/s in "Aztec Gold" and a little "Sun Yellow" applied on the inner corners of the eyes
- BN's e/s in "Chartreuse" on inner half of the lid
- MAC "Bio Green" on the middle of the lid blended with "Chartreuse"
- Pure Luxe's e/s in "Venom" 3/4 of the lid (near outer half)
- MAC "Humid" e/s applied on outer-V and contour
- ULTA "Gold Leaf" as highlight
- Milani Color Brilliance Eye Pencil in Green on lower lashline
- MAC Fluidline in "Nightfish"

do you know if ben nye products are cruelty-free? it might say on the packaging itself maybe. it's proven kinda hard to find info on this brand (and a ton of others!) online. thanks!

Green looks amaaaazing with your eyes...they look so bright! Have you tried any of the new Sally Hansen Carmindy makeup yet? It looks promising...although I can't find it around here yet.

in your picture close-up of the (mainly pure luxe) pigments that you use frequently, what are the names of the two next to fantasy which aren't from pureluxe? they look soo pretty! thanks!

Vanessa said...

thanks ladies!

Tiffany- thanks! Green is just a gorgeous color isn't it? I have seen the sally hansen new line and the packaging is cute but havent tried them yet...

B- they are from T123 minerals (adorned with grace) "black raspberry" and "blue indigo" she doesn't have a store yet she is at the testing phase of her minerals and I was a tester...
