So after being blonde... then pink, purple, violet, then electric blue which faded to a mossy green haircolor, I'm finally back to a beige blonde:
When you have hair in such a rainbow of hues, you really don't have to do much in the makeup department. I love makeup, but found myself, especially when having the brighter hair colors, to wear a very neutral cosmetics palette on the face.
Lots of using of ALL THE NAKEDS PALETTES:
But now, having this boring blonde responsible person hair color, I'm looking to liven up my eyes, cheeks and lips with some extra pizazz.
Today a tried doing lime green eyeshadow:
I applied it basically exactly like this chick did above. with the liquid liner (I used my beloved L'Oreal lineur intense) and defined the crease with "buck" from the Naked OG palette.
I thought it was fun, and less expected than a blue eyeshadow which i really can't do because it brings out all the veins and darkness in the skin around my eyes so i end up looking like Gollum:
Another look I've been toying with is the Black-Cherry lip:
I've worn it twice, and one time a young child in my son's class asked me, "did you paint that on your face?" to which I said, "yes I did." hahaha.
I kind of love the 90s connotations of this rich deep red. it reminds me of Janeane Garofalo in "Reality Bites"
the dark lipstick that I actually wore in the 1990s was by Wet'n'Wild and it looked absolutely black in the tube. I should see if they still carry that at Perry Drug.
I've also been trying my hand at the "Strobing" technique of highlighting my skin, like Gigi:
but then i heard that with "strobing" you put the highlighter on parts of your face that naturally catch light and it takes the spotlight OFF OF your wrinkles. then i breathed a great sigh of relief.
So I hit my face with the highlighter (using Gigi as an example again):
I was nervous about the pearly pink color at first, since my skin is pale, yet has yellow undertones, and i assure you this does not seem to matter. it's catching the light, you cannot see color. yay! and it was cheap!
