FOTN: Black and Yellow eyes with the Perfect Nude lips.

I was looking through all my eye shadows and I noticed that yellow is something I rarely use. I've used more of bronze and gold shades and i really need to give love to other e/s colors. I decided to do a black and yellow dramatic look and I'm pretty pleased with how it came out ^_^

face:
Skin MD natural moisturizer
Smashbox Oil-free face primer. It will help the foundation to last longer
Almay line smoothing concealer in light under the eyes. (this shade is 2 shade lighter than my skin tone)
Mark's Powder Buff powder foundation in Golden applied wet.

cheeks:
Mac powder blush in Gingerly
Milani Mosaic Bronzer in After Glow for contouring the nose, temples and cheek bones



eyes:
Almay line smoothing concealer set with a powder as a base
Mac e/s in Cork above the crease (transition color)
Mac e/s in Carbon, matte black on the crease brushing a little bit above the crease. Deepen outer corners.
shimmery yellow e/s all over the lids.
light concealer as high light on the brow bone
Mark's Long Wearing cream eye liner





lips:
Carmex lip balm
Wet and Wild lip liner in Willow (nude)
I mixed Revlon's matte in Nude Attitude, NYX r/l in Pumpkin Pie and Orange Soda to get the right nude lips that I want that wont wash me out.




Happy Wednesday everyone!!! and thanks for stopping by my blog ^_^

  16. Great combo Becky =) I need to show my yellow eyeshadows some love too, they've been neglected for quite a while. I think it's because I don't really have any good yellows in my collection. I might pic up some at IMATS in june. I love that nude lip btw!

  18. This is gorgeous. I have the NYX Yellow shadow and find it extremely hard to blend and you worked it out, I will definitely try a shimmer color over it next time I use it because by itself, it's very crappy on me. Amazing blending skills!

  19. actually wouldn't have think of yellow shadow but it is quite nice.

  20. I never use yellow, I'm too makeup-shy to use that kind of colours :p

  21. the black and gold is nice, it's got that cleopatra look going on! your lashes also look so long and flirty hehe. i can't believe you're learning how to line dance! That is soo random and funny! Don't tell me you're going to crash some old person's dancing/bingo night and bust some moves ;)

    Seeing these pics makes me even more sad that I cannot wear yellows. They look so horrible on me. Waaaah! :(
