Fierce Friday: Little Mermaid
Helloooo girls! Today's Fierce Friday is going to be a little.. I mean a LOT different. I just got back in Michigan at midnight, and started working on FF because our drive home is 2 days long.. And we don't stop!! So the pictures are not as clear as they should be, and when I unpack and get my camera, I will re post the pictures. So let the adventure begin!
1) First your going to take a really light pink eyeshadow base. I used the pinkish color in Revlon's Beyond Natural Quad in Peach over my lid, and then put BareMineral's lose eyeshadow in Enchanting
2) Take a medium icy blue color such as Laura Mercier's eyeshadow in Marina, and again use that winsheled wiper motion in applying it to your crease. As well as in this look, you want to keep it only around a centimeter tall.
2.5) ---- Optional- Take a matalicy blue/green eye liner and wing it out on the side. Then, apply it on your bottom lashes, and water line.
4) Put on a few coats of your favorite mascara. Lancome's Hypnose Mascara is my favorite! A cheaper alternitive is Maybaline's Colosal (In Glam Black) This look is great because it's mellow, and dramatic at the same time! For some reason, it makes me feel like I'm under the sea. It's best paired with a light pink lipstick such as MAC'S Please Me
Weekly Rave: This week's rave is strange.. I've been in Colorado and California the whole summer, and in case you guys didn't know. Those both are veerry hot! And no matter what, when it's hot. My face is always sweating! So my had these little bumps covering my face. I didn't know what to do, and then I started using Tea Tree Oil. For those who don't know what TTO is, it's actually the opposite of an oil. So it's great for people with oily skin. It's basically an anti-bacterial liquid that dries your face like crazy, (So use a facial lotion after!) but clears it up like no other! For those of you who suffer with acne, it would be a GREAT all natural solution to try if you haven't already!
Eyeshadow Analysis: This week's EA is MAC'S eyeshadow pigment in Coco Beach. If you guys don't shop at MAC that much, then you probably don't know what their 'pigments' are. Pigments are basically de-potted eyeshadow (meaning lose. Like.. Seriously lose) that is always very concentrated! CB is a very pretty medium brownish gold eyeshadow that shimmers gold in the light. It makes a PERFECT eye liner and a good crease color for a dramatic look! I love the color and the texture.. But I'm not a big fan of MAC'S pigments (that's why I don't have to many of them) For a reason.. Sense their lose, they give a ton of fall out! Expeshially when you first apply them.. So for that, I'm going to have to give this shadow a conservitive 3.5/5 I love the color, but you can't really use it for an everyday look unless your using it as a liner, and that can be a pain. Even though it's not the best, for those of you who don't mind spending a few extra seconds apply their crease shadow so it won't leave fall out. I would tootaaly recomend Coca Beach!
I hope you guys enjoyed todays Fierce Friday,
and that your Friday is as fierce, and free as ever!
