I finally got back on MUA after being off of it for a good while. Things at work are too busy for me to play :-) But I needed some ideas, and that’s always a great place to go. There’s a FOTD (Face of the Day) board where people post their looks and get responses. A lot of people ask for CC (Constructive Criticism), but I do not. I’m not posting to be criticized…I’m giving back ideas and taking ideas from others. I do value opinions though, and I love hearing yours (afterall, this site is kinda for YOU, right? lol!) in the comments. Lots of people on other boards feel that FOTD board is just for people fishing for compliments, and that’s just not the case. The exchange of ideas is enormous, the validation is inspiring, and the overall positive ways that women are interacting is uplifting. That’s the way I see it, anyway. Have you been to the boards? What’s your opinion?
Anyway, on to the look…someone posted a FOTD using the UD Baked palette I believe, and I loved the combination of gold and teal, so I gave it my own spin. At first I didn’t like it at all and was like, uh oh…what have you done?! But with a little bit of a darker color right in the outer crease, it came together, and I really liked how it’s bold, edgy, and different from the everyday, you know? Maybe a little overboard on the blush, and the liner still needs to be thicker more toward the outer edge, but still, I like it (and nobody’s perfect right?) :-)
For this look I used:
- Eyes: UDPP (primer), Painterly PP (base), Metal X Pure Ore (inner lid), Metal X Goldspice (middle lid), Natural Flare MES over those, Teal Pigment (outer lid & crease), Femme Fi (highlight), Kat Von D Proud Peacock (upper lashline), UD 24/7 Flipside (lower lashline), Graphblack Technakohl (waterline), Plushlash mascara
- Cheeks: Laura Geller Sunswept mineralize blush
- Lips: Buoy-o-Buoy l/s + Just a Smudge Suntint balm

I have to be honest and say this isn’t one of my favorite looks that you have done.

I think it is a score. I TOTALLY love the teal/gold combo!
