Sultry Smokey Green Eyes! Central Park After Dark!

Hello Gorgeous!

As requested by a beauty subscriber I did this green shadow look using Mally Beauty's Citychick Smokey Eye shadow in Central Park.  These are the most awesome shades of green I have ever seen and well worth the price ($38 on QVC or  

Mally Roncal is a makeup artist to celebrities and she definitely knows color!  

Here are the colors I used

Lid:  The lightest shade of green from the Citychick Smokey Eye Palette (Central Park)
Crease: Darkest shade of Central Park and a bronze color from Brownstone Collection (Mally)
Browlighter: The lightest shade from Central Park.
Under Eye: Bronze and the Light Green mixed together.  I first put the bronze on and below it is the green mixed in.  
Cheeks: Mally Effortless Airbrush Blush & Highlighter Duo in Peach.  (I LOVE THIS!!!! CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT THIS)
Lips:  Oak liner from Mac and Tom Ford's Naked Lipgloss



From Left to Right: Browligher, Lidcolor, Crease

The Look for Less Using Drugstore Makeup!

Hello Gorgeous! 

Here is my "look for less" using L'Oreal, Rimmel, Maybelline, and Milani.  I recently bought the latest colors from L'Oreal cosmetics called L'Oreal Infalliable 24 Hr Eye Shadow.  These eye shadows remind me so much of Armani's Gorgeous Eyes Collection. They have the same type of presentation.  You twist the top off and a little protection plate is set on top of the eye shadow.  Let me just say that these shades are extremely pigmented.  I only swatched it once on my arm and that is the true color.  Unbelievable!  

Here is a list of what I used for my look!

* Lid- L'Oreal Infalliable shadow in Bronzed Taupe $6.97
* Crease-  Rimmel Eye shadow in Dusk $2.37
* Highlight-  L'Oreal Infalliable shadow in Iced Latte $6.97
* Cheeks-  Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink $7.56
* Lips- Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch $2.47
* Lashes- L'Oreal's Voluminous Lash in Black (waterproof) $6.00

Other items I used that are not drugstore are NARS foundation, Mally Beauty Highlighter for cheeks, MAC smolder eyeliner for eye, and Brow Fix by Mally.
