FOTD: April 9th, 2011

I wanted to do a really purple/pink look today for going out! I absolutely love pinks! Can't you tell? Hehe.

To achieve this look I used the following products:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Maybelline FitMe Foundation in Ivory
Urban Decay Sustainable Eye shadow palette
Maybelline Volume Express Mascara
Maybelline Concealer in Ivory
Coastal Scents Prism Palette
No name makeup palette
and my makeup brushes 

To start my face of the day, I began with the foundation and blended that all over my face and jaw line so I didn't have marks were you can see it wasn't blended. I think that's one of my biggest pet peeves. Seeing people not blend their foundation good enough.

 Next I took the concealer and applied that under my eyes due to dark circles and lack of sleep.

 To start with the eyeshadow: I used my urban decay primer potion all over my lids. The first color I started with was the lavender color at the bottom. I used that color all over my lid and crease.

The second color I used was the purple color above it and I put that over half of my lid.

Then I chose the dark purple color "Flash" for my crease and outer v. I personally love this color and it's very pigmented compared to my coastal scents palette.

Next step: I chose this really pretty pink blush to apply to my cheeks. Since it's so pigmented I have to be careful and not OVER apply. I don't want to look like a clown.

Sorry for the dirty lipstick next to it. lol. I don't know what's up with that one and the one in the picture below has a strand of brush hair in it. LOL.

To finish this look I used a really pretty medium purple lipstick that really looked pink when I took pictures. I actually like wearing bright lipsticks now. It's crazy. I've never really been a lipstick person but I love it now!

Hopefully sometime soon I can purchase the Candy Yum Yum lipstick from Mac. I'm in L-O-V-E

 On to the pictures :]
