FOTD: Slytherin Silver and Green

DSCN4614Look number three in my Harry Potter House series: Slytherin. Also, my first attempt at a cut crease. I think it turned out pretty decent. I’m totally not a Slytherin, but I think this look gets the vibe right.

SlytherinDark witchy lips.

Lips:

First I primed my eyes, then I traced a line along my crease with a green metallic liner. I blended the liner into my crease with a brush. Then I used my pinky to dab Pixie Epoxy below the liner and let it set for a second. I patted Huntress, a silver, over the Pixie Epoxy. Then I used a pencil brush to apply Envy, a dark green, along the liner, flaring it up at the outer corners. I also applied some along the lower lashes. Then I lined my upper lashes with black liquid liner and finished with a strong wing. I applied some along the outer half of my lower lashes as well, connecting at the corners. I then lined my lower waterline with silver eyeliner, going around my inner corner to the very inner part of my upper lashline. I lined below my bottom lashes with the green eyeliner and blended it in with a brush. I curled my lashes and applied mascara. Then I applied foundation and concealer. I applied a pink blush with silver shimmer, and then put my setting powder all over the top of everything. I finished with A Girl and A Cat, a dark purple tinted balm.

This feels witchy and slightly goth but flamboyant at the same time, which seems appropriate for Slytherin. It makes me want to experiment with cut creases, because I’m not sure I did it right, but I like how it looks anyways. Tomorrow, last but not least (ok let’s be honest, they’re kind of the least…) Hufflepuff!

FOTD: Lemon Lime Eyeshadow

DSCN2172I built this look around Debussy, a light golden green from Hello Waffle’s Musicians collection (which is the next review I’ll be putting up later this week). When I put it on, I wasn’t quite sure what to pair it with, but I wound up grabbing a yellow and a green, to make a bright, citrusy look. Lemon Lime Once again, this look is quite bold on it’s own, but very wearable with glasses.

  • MAC Face and Body Foundation in N1
  • Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in 1
  • Shiro Fatality Finishing Powder
  • Shiro Gelato Beach Blush

Lips:

  • MAC See Sheer

I started with primer, like usual and then patted Debussy, a light green with a golden sheen, all over my lids. I added Golden Afternoon, a bright yellow with gold sparkle, on the inner third of my lid, and around to the inner third of my lower lashline. Then I added Shiro’s That’ssss a Nice House, a bright grass green, to the outer part of my crease. That was just too bright, so I applied Envy, a much darker green, over the top and blended it down toward my outer corner. I added my usual winged liner, but forgot mascara. (Oops!) My face products were the same as usual, but I wanted a bright blush and lipstick to balance out the eyes, so I went with bright coral. I blended Gelato Beach blush onto my cheeks, concentrating on the upper/outer corners of my cheeks. (Do cheeks even have corners?) I finished off with See Sheer lipstick.

I felt so bright and citrusy! I loved it. And then the Wisconsinite in me realized I had totally just made Packers make up. Womp womp.
