My St. Patty's Makeup Look

Good Afternoon Lovelies!

I know it doesn't do you much good to see this now, but I figure I'll show ya anyway.  I was pretty pleased with how this turned out!

I forgot to take pics of the colors I used, does that really surprise you?  But, basically, I just used a Medium Forrest green in the crease and blended up toward the brow bone.  Then I decided it was a bit too bright for the office, so I added a touch of black to the crease and very gently blended it up.  I did the same for the lower lid, getting gradually thinner as I went from the outer corner to abotu 2/3 of the way in.  I then used a nude color on my lid, from lashline to crease.  And highlighted just under the brow, and in the inner corner of the eye with just a touch of white shadow.  Apply liquid liner to the upper lid, pencil liner to the waterlines and mascara and there you have it!  And before I get asked, nope, no false lashes were worn. 
 
 
You'll have to excuse the weird hair...I hadn't done anything with it yet!

I realized the only green clothing I own is a dark green sweater, and it was too warm for that!  So eyeshadow and nail polish were my festive accents!

Now, I have a dilemma...
I plan to do a week of Easter Manis week after next, and I love the ideas I've come up with so much, that I want to be able to wear them and enjoy them.   I also don't wanna come up with ideas, do them, take a pic and take them off just so I have something to post...I wanna wear 'em and enjoy 'em!  Problem is, I have nothing in the vault to post for you next week.  I have a few ideas on things I could do but thought I'd get your input...
I have been thinking about how every time you guys see a pic of me, I seem to always be in retro/pin-up stuff, and thought it might be fun to take a pic of my outfit everyday and post that, so you can see my many fashion personalities!
I could also post a few different makeup looks...
or
Would you rather me take a week off and spare you the randomness

So here is my question to you....

Do you want... 
Outfits?
Makeup?
Or to be spared my weirdness for a week?
LOL
Your allowed to choose the last one, I wont be offended!  :)

That's it for today my wonderful readers!
I hope you have a marvelous day!

I always suspect the best posts are when the blogger is just having fun & enjoying her/himself, so my answer to your question is just do what makes you happy. -JenB

I second JenB's sentiment. Do what you like and what makes you happy. I'll check it out!

Awesome eye makeup! I don't mind the breaks in between..you should enjoy your manicures. I would like to see a couple makeup looks, that's always fun!

Nicole said...

Man, I can tell those aren't falsies - but you must have either some amazing lashes to start out with or an awesome mascara! They look beautiful. This is a really nice cut crease! I love your blending.
And - well for me, you can post all of the above, I enjoy seeing all your posts. It's a great variety!

Oh, girl...you're gorgeous! Your eyes remind me of a mermaid (don't ask me why, 'cause I don't know). And those lashes! Whoa!

I love reading your posts. All of them, so as long as you're posting, I'm happy. =)

Green is always a 'difficult' makeup colour to pull off, but your application was done beautifully.
My vote is for makeup and outfits!

Love the eyemakeup. You do such a wonderful job of blening. Your lashes are killer! I for one would love to see some outfits new or retro and makeup. It will be fun to see you and hear from you till your Easter manicures.

Serena said...

The thing I like about your blog is that it is different than all the other nail blogs out there. Go ahead and post your randomness because I always find it interesting!
