St. Patrick's Day Look

Yay! I love St. Patty's Day! And it is a big deal to me because I'm a quarter Irish (my grandparents were full Irish) and I love all things Irish, adult beverages included. So in honor of this most awesome and festive day: a St. Patty's Day look. Sorry for the hair, I did this look at almost 2am and I'm in pjs and my hair is a mess and I'm like whatev. The downside is now my makeup is all done and I have no where to go but to sleep, sad day. Anyways, hope you enjoy!

Smoky Taupe and Purple

Here is the other look I did for the evening. I loved this one so much I even tried it on myself! I picked these colors because they complimented her eyes and skin tone. Definitely a look I will put into my personal file :D

Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Satin Taupe on the lid
Lancome Color Du Jour in the crease
MAC Beauty Marked in the outer crease to create a more depth look
MAC Grand Entrance as a highlight
Sephora Liquid Eyeliner in Black on upper lash line
Revlon Pencil Eyeliner in Black on the lower water line
Fresh's Mascara in Supernova
Benefit's Browzings in Light

On my Lips:
Chanel Glossimer lipgloss in Seashell

Dark Grey Smoky Eyes

This past weekend I had the privileged of doing two of my sorority sister's makeup for a fraternity formal. And they let me take pictures and gave me permission to post them. Which is awesome because I don't like the fact that it's always me on here. Even though it is my blog, I don't want people to think I'm narcissistic, plus this gives others the opportunity to see that I'm somewhat qualified in putting makeup on others. It is a difficult task, especially with the eyes, which is all I did on this look. So below is a dark grey smoky look I did and as always the products used:

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Almay intense-i-color trio for hazels in the grey pallet. I used the medium grey color on the lid, the dark grey mixed with a matte black in the crease. And a white shimmer as a highlight.
Sephora liquid eyeliner in black on the upper lash line.
Revlon pencil eyeliner on the lower water line.
Fresh's mascara in Supernova
