Black&Yellow Liner

Yellow eyeliner! Who would’ve thought? My first thought was “Yellow liner? Ew no. Just no.”  But years ago I saw an Avon add with yellow and black eyeliner. I remember thinking it was so original and artsy, and actually really liked it! I couldn’t wait to try it from then on. Today, I finally did a post on it!

It sounds like something you can’t just wear out. But it’s really no more ‘stand-out’ than white or silver, and definitely no more than blue or purple. In fact, people have to look twice to realize it’s a wacky color! I think it’s a very nice color accent to brighten a look, and goes well with a black or grey outfit, neutral lips, and peachy blush.

Product(s):

– Yves Rocher Long Lasting Eye Pencil in Jaune Citron

– Maybelline Master Precise liquid liner in “Black”

– Maybelline The Colossal Smokey Eyes Volum’ Express mascara

Fresh Spring Green

 

 

So, excuse the chipping on some of my nails… I took these photos on day 3. Haha. (Which, I think, is pretty good for 3 days wear-time!)

I’m not a huge fan of cool colored nailpolish, especially green, but I really ended up liking this one!!

I used “the more the merrier” by Essie.

My Blush Picks (+Swatches)

Here are my blush picks! As you can tell, I prefer rosy pinks, and my trusty peach color by MAC…

IMG_3286

1) MAC Matte Powder Blush in “Melba”

2) Avon Powder Blush in pink

3) Joe Fresh Cream Stick Blush in “Pink Rose”

4) Bourjois Paris Baked Powder Blush in “Rose D’Or” (Golden Rose)*

5) Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in 10 “Pink Frosting”

The cream and mousse blushes seem to be more flattering in the summer when I’m not wearing a lot of makeup. They blend in well with the dewy skin.

The powders all are great for winter, and I usually have a powdery base. The MAC “Melba” color, however, looks better with a tan in the summer.

It still works in the winter with certain outfits/makeup looks though. Pink usually works better for me in the winter.

The shimmer in the Bourjois and the Maybelline blushes look very dazzling and flattering in sunlight. But if overly applied, it would look “overdone” and too sparkly rather than lightly shimmery.

Blush makes all the difference. Pink, and some peachy colors, are for me! What’s your blush color?

Valentine’s Day Look #2: Pinky-Promise

 

Pink pink pink!

I have to say, recently I’m loving the color pink. Fine timing, eh? I mean, with Valentine’s Day coming up and all…..

So here’s a very pink look you can try this year! A black, gray, or white sweater with a matching pink scarf would go nicely with this look.
