MOTD: City Color Cosmetics Brown and Greens

Just a quick post for today! Wanted to post this before I forgot. I've been working hard the past 2 weeks trying to get on a regular schedule with posting on the blog and creating/posting MOTD's on Instagram.

Today's look is a classic look with a twist. 

First I used City Color Cosmetics Shadow Primer all over the eye up to the brow.  I like to use my index finger to apply the primer because the warmth of my finger really helps blend the primer.

All the shadows are from City Color Cosmetics Green/Brown Multi-Shade Eye Shadow Palette. For the pop of color on the lower lash line and mixed the greens in the palette to smudge a soft drop shadow liner. Love these

Alter Ego Lashes

in Pin Up Girl - perfect lashes for this look don't you think? On my brows I have Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel Espresso and Brow Genius Kit in BrunetteThe blush is the 3rd color in the Intense Blush Quad.  To complete the look is the matte lipstick in Red.

MOTD: Prom Makeup Mint Green Dress

 I love Stephanie's prom dress color, it is a light mint green.  I didn't want to do a heavy makeup style for this dress but instead I opted for something more light and spring like.  I wish the camera captured the pretty golden shimmery shadow around the eye and the glitter.  It looks so pretty in person.  MAC Creme Cup Lipstick is my favorite all around light pink lipstick as it looks great on everyone.

Tutorial: 2013 Pantone Color of the Year EMERALD

PANTONE 17-5641 Emerald

, a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013. (according to their website). You will see this color everywhere from fashion to home textiles.

What is Pantone you ask? "Pantone is a standardized color matching system, utilizing the Pantone numbering system for identifying colors. By standardizing the colors, different manufacturers in different locations can all reference a Pantone numbered color, making sure colors match without direct contact with one another." (

). Every year the company comes out with selected colors to feature for the season and one for the year. To learn more about Pantone please click

 I really love how rich this color is, it's a great color to work in your makeup routine.  If you are not brave enough to try the Emerald all over your eye try applying it as an eyeliner for a pop of color.  The possibilities are endless.

I will be focusing on all the Spring 2013 Fashion Color Report Colors below for future videos and MOTD'S. I love all the colors and can't wait to create some amazing looks for all of you.

Here are the products that I used to create this look:

Infallible golden emerald, endless pearl, iced latte

Elf 144 eye shadow palette matte green

Maybelline Fit Foundation 310 (I am usually a MAC Nc40/NC42

Revlon photo ready bb cream medium

Model 21 eyelashes 19t 31

Wet n wild goddess bronzer

Elf blush tickled pink

MOTD: Teal/purple brown eye

Who knew that teal and  purple/brownish shade would look good together.  I am using the Limited Edition Sleek Makeup Monaco Palette.  Will update this post once I get some swatches together from this palette.
