I am beyond excited to be posting my first collaboration with Rossy from AyR Galaxy! I contacted her a couple weeks ago about doing a St. Patrick’s Day makeup post. We both like trying out different looks, and we’re on a similar skill level when it comes to makeup, so I felt like we would be a great match together.
I thought it would pretty cool if we each did two looks and then split those among our blogs. I am posting one of my looks here on my blog, and Rossy will be posting the other look I created on her blog. Likewise, I’m posting one of her looks here, and she will be posting her other look on her own blog. So make sure you check out her blog post so you can see the other great looks we created!
For both of my looks, I really wanted to go glam. Cue the glitter and metallics! I used the same color scheme for both looks, however I switched the focus a bit. For this look, I wanted the focus to be more on my eyes. Whereas the look on Rossy’s post, I tried to make the focus primarily on my lips. I haven’t done too many looks like this, but I’m really pleased with how they turned out. It also makes me want to go to a rave again because these looks would be perfect for one.
To achieve this look, I used some gold and green shades from a Shany eyeshadow palette. (It’s a 120 color palette that I bought for $15. So needless to say I had some issues with fallout and pigmentation, but I still made it work). I also used a gold glitter stick, black liquid eyeliner, and mascara. For the cheeks and nose, I used the BH Cosmetics Wild & Radiant palette and ColourPop highlighter in shade Glazed. For the lips, I used a couple golden shades from the same Shany eyeshadow palette. As you know, I love using eyeshadow on my lips because you can create some interesting shades and looks that way. In this case, I think the color on my lips is stunning. I tried to make them slightly golden as to symbolize a pot of gold.
I also really wanted to use false lashes to complete the look, but let’s be real. That is one thing that I am just not good at. I spent quite a bit of time on this look, so I didn’t want to risk messing it up by attempting to glue on lashes. I do need to try practicing that more.
Now let’s check out one of Rossy’s looks! She combined several shades to create this amazing vibrant green. I’m in awe at how beautiful and bright this is!
Rossy: “For this look I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do. I just knew that I wanted it to be a little different than my first one. Compared to my first look, this one turned out to be a little less wearable just because I’m using more [eyelid] space with the color. The green shade fans up towards my brow bone, and out a little toward my temples. In the end it turned out to be a variation of a halo eye but not quite.
For anyone wondering how I created this look, I used several [green] shades varying in tone and blended them all together to get “custom” hues. I also went with a nude lip cocktail using a pink nude and a peach nude shade, but you can always use a green shade (which I didn’t have) to make it bolder. I topped it off with some mascara (but you can of course add lashes to make it more extravagant) and some liquid liner.”
Thanks for checking these looks out! Make sure you give Rossy’s post a visit as well so you can see our other two makeup looks!
