FOTD: More Summer Greens with Wet Ivy & Graffiti
I can't help but love green at the moment. I guess it is because I live near lots of parks but it could just be one of those marketing things where I've seen a lot of green everywhere. While organizing my stash, I came across my much unused Maybelline Eye Studio Marbelized Eye Shadow in Ivy Icon. My initial review of this was that they were decent for a drugstore buy. I haven't gotten around to doing a look with it until now. (The gym and my dog call me! ;) This look does require using the eye shadows wet, but with great results! I enjoy Ivy Icon far more wet than I do dry.
What I used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Maybelline Eye Studio Marbelized Eye Shadow, Ivy Icon
MAC Paint Pot, Bare Study
MAC Pigment, Gold Rush
MAC Powerpoint Eye Kohl, Feline
Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Liner, Graffiti
Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara, Kohl Black
MAC Dazzle Lipstick, Glaringly Hip
MAC Dare to Wear Lipglass, Wind Me Up
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish, Comfort
Apply UDPP all over lid to brow bone, allow to set. Apply Bare Study to lids with a MAC 242 brush. Apply Blonde's Gold pigment to brow bone with a dry MAC 239 brush. Wet a MAC 228 or 239 brush with MAC Fix+ or MAC Charged Water and apply Blonde's Gold pigment to inner third of lid. Apply lighter shade of Ivy Icon wet to middle and outer third of lid with a MAC 239 brush. Apply to crease with a wet MAC 239 brush the darker shade of Ivy Icon to crease.
