I have always *loved* getting my makeup done by the pros and this time, I got to meet with Kohl’s National Beauty Expert, Kathy Snider, who has been in the beauty industry for over 20 years, for a makeover. Since I wanted something soft and wearable for the day, Kathy decided to recreate the look from Flirt! Cosmetics’ latest Green Envy Spring 2009 collection on me.
“Green is a great alternative to brown – a color we have been seeing a little too much nowadays,” says Kathy. “It can also make you look more rested by making the whites of your eyes appear whiter.” Why? ‘Cos “green counteracts redness.” So true!
Here is a simple EOTD of me wearing my new Geo Tri-Color lenses – god I heart these babies!
What I Used
* Geo Tri-Color Lenses in Gray
* Jane Magical Mushroom Eyeshadow to fill in eyebrows
* Lumene Eye Makeup Base as a primer
* NARS Wicked Duo Eyeshadow on entire eyelid
* MAC Hepcat Eyeshadow on lower eye
* Benefit Bad Gal Liquid Liner along upper lash line
* Fantasy Makers Witches’ Charm Eyelashes in Sorceress on top
* L’oreal Bare Naturale Mascara in Black on lower lashes
Here is my MAC Barbie-inspired look that I have been wanting to do forever. The collection is not coming out until March over here in London so I just used whatever I got to try to copy the look. Hope you guys like it!
Since it is St. Patty’s day, I would like to write about one of my favorite eyeshadow colors – green. As we all know, green is notorious for making brown eyes pop. It is also an uber versatile color – you can pair it with blue, purple, gold, black and brown plus you can create different looks with different greens. For a sultry look, do a smoky eye with a darker, mossy green. If you just want a hint of color to brighten up your eyes, pick a pastel green. Go with a bright green when you’re in a fun mood. Below are some of my picks that would look *hot* on Asian eyes:
