Primary Colors FOTD and Lime Crime8:34 PM
To support my alma mater's current attempt at the NCAA basketball tournament, I have for you a red, yellow, and blue FOTD. I'm not gonna lie, a big reason I did this look was just because I'm obsessed with my Victoria's Secret PINK collegiate hoodie and it inspired me. REGARDLESS of the reason, it gave me a chance to do a really fun look, using one of the fantastic Limecrime shadows that I got the opportunity to try out.
The main tools used:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
NYX single eyeshadow in Atlantic
NYX single eyeshadow in Hot Cherry
Limecrime magic dust in Circus Girl
NYX Jumbo Shadow pencil in Cottage Cheese
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack
Apply the golden-yellow circus girl shadow to the inner half of the lid. Then, apply hot cherry to the outer half, blending into circus girl in the middle. Take atlantic (royal blue shadow) and blend into the outer-v and along the bottom lashline. Add a highlight color to the brow bone and frost tearducts with the NYX shadow stick in cottage cheese. Apply liner and mascara as usual.
How amazing is Circus Girl? I've been really searching for a good, pigmented yellow since it's hard to find one that will look good on my strong yellow undertones and this one is just perfect. I've already used it a few times and it always looks great.
LOOOOOOOOVE this hoodie!
Here are the swatches of the Limecrime shadows I received. I got Circus Girl (yellow), Empress (purple), and Princess Caraboo (dark green). All of them have beautiful pigmentation and feel very creamy. These swatches are using the little bit of shadow from the lid of the containers.
Top is one swipe with no primer, bottom is on UDPP.
I really wish I could show a look with all the shadows on but I realized after I swatched that it looks like Mardi Gras! Oh well. I know I will definitely be using these a ton in the future. If you are thinking about ordering, DO IT. Really. Not only are the colors available amazing but Xenia from Doe Deere Blogazine is incredibly nice and her blog is beautiful and insightful. Go visit it, you won't be disappointed. :)
I also got my NYX lot haul in. OMG SO OVERWHELMING.
Santa, is it Christmas???

Okay it's super late so I'm going to bed. Goodnight everyone!
