'Grassy Poolside' Look

'Grassy Poolside' Look

Where the heck have I been? LOL! I promise I did not forget you guys...but I was swamped at work (end of year push of course) and then I went to San Diego to relax for the weekend. I didn't even wear makeup for the past week so my face got some breathing time. How are you guys doing? What are your holiday plans? I'm spending it with family for the most part. : )


I started off with NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base all over my lid up to the brow bone. I applied MAC Layin' Low Paintpot (matte beige) all over my lid and on my brow bone as my primary base. I also added MUFE #10 Flash Color (matte white) all over my lid as a secondary base.Sonia Kashuk Dome Blending Brush

On the inner lid and tearduct area I applied MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
Next on the middle of the lid I applied Magnolia Makeup 011 Chlorine Pigment (satin bright blue). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
Next on the browbone area I applied MAC Sassy Grass Eyeshadow (matte grass green). MAC 217 Blending Brush
Above that for blending I used Magnolia Makeup 026 Saffronia Pigment (satin light yellow). MAC 217 Blending Brush
For the outer lid and to define the crease I used NARS China Blue Eyeshadow (matte navy). MAC 239 Eye Shader Brush
For highlight I used MAC Blanc Type Eyeshadow (matte ivory). MAC Large 252 Shader Brush
For my lower lashline I used the MUFE #167 Eyeshadow (shimmery bright blue). MAC 212 Flat Definer Brush

My brows are filled in with MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Stud and NARS Coconut Grove Eyeshadow (matte blackened brown). Paula Dorf Eye Definer Flat Top Brush

I lined my upper lashline with Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner.
I lined my lower waterline with L'Oreal HIP Cream Eyeliner in Black. Stila #28 Smudge Pot Brush
I used Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara for my lashes and added Beautee Senses Annie False Eyelashes for effect.


For my lips I used MAC Blooming Lovely Lipstick (creamy lavenderr pink) topped with MAC English Accents Lipglass (creamy pink).


MAC Oil Control Lotion and Tarte Clean Slate Face Primer. I used MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 - Sigma Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush - for my face and set my t-zone with MAC Blot Powder in Dark. I used YSL TOUCHE ÉCLAT Radiant Touch in #5 and MUFE #14 Full Cover Concealer - Fingers : ) under my eyes set with Benefit Powderflage - Beauty Blender Sponge.

I used MAC Bite Of An Apple Blush (matte coral pink) for my cheeks - MAC 129 Powder/Blush Brush and MUFE #2 Sculpting Kit for contour and highlight - MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush.
