Look of the Day (LOTD) Colorful Caribbean

Since the days are warming up, and everyone is out of school, and ready to hang out and chill with friends and family. I wanted to do a bright look. Not to mention there was a Taste of the Caribbean, and Music Festival at a nearby college (a.k.a my old school) on Saturday. And that means fun, bright, happy, and colorful tones are needed for any Caribbean Event.

As some of you may or may not know, I’m part West Indian which means, it’s always fun and makes me happy when I see my people having a good time. Anyway here’s a fun bright look, which I got loads of compliments on from all different kinds of people.

1.     Smashbox Foundation Primer
2.     E.L.F. Complexion Perfection
3.     Maybelline's FIT Me! Foundtion in 350 (Caramel)
4.     E.L.F.  Tone Correcting Concealer
5.     Maybelline's New FIT Me! Pressed Powder in 350 (Caramel)
6.     Jordana Pressed Powder in 108 (Warm Amber) to blend in with the 350 powder to add a more natural contour.

1.     I used a light gold or the upper part of my cheeks

1.     Using UDPP as a Base placed all over the eye
2.     Using and packing brush, I patted StarsMakeupHaven E/S Fresh in the inner conner and blended it to the middle lid.
3.    Then I used a dome brush and blended StarsMakeupHaven E/S Shimmerbrick on the middle lid and outer lid.
4.     Then lightly added StarsMakeupHaven E/S Over The Moon in my crease, and blened it into my Outer V and half way on my lower lashline.
5.     Then I added StarsMakeupHaven E/S Fresh from the middle of my lashline to the inner conner.
6.     I used MAC E/S in Texture for my highlight
7.     I lined my upper lashline with E.L.Fs Black Cream eyeliner
8.     I then lined my waterline with Urban Decay’s liner in Zero
9.     The Mascara I used was Almay Dial Up set to #3

1.     I used Amuse Burgundy  lip liner all over my lips and softly patting with the pads of my fingers
2.     Then I used NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Burgundy

FYI you don't have to use the same brand I used. You can use any brand you have or want, that’s just what I wanted to used ^_^

Peace n' Love<3
