Yesterday's LOTD--pretty greens

I'm still kind of mad that my pictures from the other day disappeared.  I lost all the shots of my Bear's graduation.  It was a really lame ceremony (lasted maybe 7 minutes, if that) but it was really important to him and it's upsetting there's no photos to remember it by :(

I lost my makeup pictures for that day too.  Which, in the grand scheme of things, is really no big deal because I can (and probably will) recreate the look sometime in the future. 

But it's because of my picture's magical disappearing act, that I even attempted to put on makeup yesterday.  I only got 2 1/2 hours sleep the night before and had a meeting to attend in the middle of the afternoon--on my day off!  I wanted to have something to post but I was also grumpy and hoped that having a pretty face might cheer me up a little :)

I also bought some gel liner on Tuesday, so this was a practice session as well. (I really can not get the whole gel liner thing down)

(That full face shot makes my head look HUGE, which it kinda is....LOL)

On the eyes, I used Concrete Minerals Swamped (lid, lower lashline) and Juvenile(crease, inner corner).  Juvenile is a really bright chartreuse-y color but I really like how it toned down when I blended it with the swamped.  I used Wet n' Wild gel liner in black on the upper lashline and Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero on the bottom.  Mascara was Cover Girl Lashblast in Very Black (which I just bought and never used before).

For primers, I used Monistat Anti-Chafing gel (face) and UDPP and FPE (Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy) on my eyes.

Face was Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Ivory, Fyrinnae Fluff finishing powder, and NYC color wheel blush.

Lips were Deceptive Innocence from Fyrinnae

Oh and I have some really pretty plum gel liner BUT it takes so long to dry that I end up opening my eye too wide toosoon and it smears up onto my lid. So I don't use it. grrr.
