Happy Grinchmas!

As I mentioned in my last post, my family and I went to Universal Studios the other day to go and see the celebration.  In honor of this, I did 'Whoville' inspired makeup which involved multiple bright colored eyeliner since one of the first things I think of when I think of Whoville is BRIGHT COLORS.  So here's my face:
And here's a close-up of my eye: 
For my foundation, I used my Pur Minerals 4-in-1 Pressed Mineral Makeup in Light/Fair.  I then used my Holy Grail palette I got from Sephora forever ago for blush and eyes.  I used the pink blush that looks baby doll like and quite frightening in the pan but if put on with a light hand goes on quite nice.  I then highlighted right under my eye up towards my hair and my T-Zone with a very light pink almost pearl like shimmery highlighter in the same palette as the blush and eyeshadow.  I then used two eyeshadows from the palette, one is a grey toned beige with a lot of shimmer and then white shimmer eyeshadow under my brow.  

I used four different eyeliners; green, pink, blue, and gold.  All four colors are from the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil.  They are hands down my favorite eyeliners EVER.  On the inner corner of my eye I used a gold color called El Dorado.  I love to use gold eyeliner or shadow in the inner corner of my eye to help me look more awake.  Then I lined my eye from the inside to the halfway point on top in a teal blue called Electric.  I think it's a really pretty blue that can be very subtle or built up to be a bold color pop on the eye.  Then what I used going from where the blue ends to the end of my eye and a little beyond I used a pink eyeliner called Woodstock.  I know, I know, pink can be a really frightening eye color to wear in eyeliner or shadow form.  That is why I only use this color to line half my eye like I did here or do a subtle double line on top of another eyeliner.  It's a great way to play around with colors.  Finally on my bottom lash line I used a green color called Junkie.  Green a great way for people to experiment with color without going to bold, and is especially great for people with blue, blue/grey, green, and even brown eyes- personally I think it can work with any eye color.

For my lashes I used two different mascaras.  First I used Rimmel's Glam Eyes mascara and then I used Covergirl lashblast fusion over top.  I used to hate filling in my eyebrows because I thought it looked weird but now I can't wear makeup without filling them in.  I use the Napolean Prismatic Eye Quad #4 because two of the colors are a nice matte light brown and dark brown, it also has a matte white and a matte salmon pink.  I mainly use the light brown because it matches my changing hair color the best.

Happy holidays to all of my lovely readers and followers! XOXO
