FFF: Maroon-green makeup look

Saturday, 31 March 2012

This weeks FFF is a request via Twitter to match an outfit that is maroon and green/teal with silver threadwork/beading.

Products used:
> NYX JEP in Milk
> Sleek Monaco & Bad Girl palette - Innocence, Bamboo, Aquamarine, Sunset, Humming Bird, Moors Treasure
> Sleek Au Naturel palette - Noir & Bark
> UD 24/7 eye pencil in Zero
> MAC fluidline in Blacktrack
> Kiko Unforgettable waterproof mascara
> Khuraira ACC in Light
> MAC Studio Finish concealer - NC35
> Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in 55
> UD Baked Bronzer in Toasted
> UD Super Saturated Lip Color in Apocalypse
> ELF lipstick in Seductive

After priming the eye with UDPP & NYX JEP in Milk I applied Sleek Innocence (from the Bad Girl palette) to the inner corners of the eyes, followed by Sunset (Monaco palette) on the rest of the eyelid. Moors Treasure (Monaco palette) was used in the crease, buffing it upwards slightly, followed by Bamboo (Monaco palette) on the brow bone, blending down into Moors Treasure. Aquamarine and Humming Bird were added to the lower lashline (although the photos have come out looking more mossy green than teal/turquoise!)
Lining the inner eyes with UD 24/7 liner in Zero and I then completed the look with topliner using MAC fluidline and Kiko mascara.
I filled in the brows with Sleek's Bark & Noir from the Au Naturel palette and concealed under the eyes to finish:

For the rest of the face I used Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation in 55 and UD Baked Bronzer in Toasted to keep it neutral on the cheeks; for the lips I used a nude/coral colour (ELF Seductive lipstick):

I also tried a more dramatic berry lip colour (UD SSLC in Apocalypse) to see how it would look:
This look is fairly festive in my opinion, so could be used around Christmas maybe??
Which look do you prefer or like best? Would you wear this look?
