A look I did on my lunch break from a Corporate job a decade ago carries on until today all over the web. When I was "younger", I guess you can say I was a little more daring with my makeup. Bright colors, glitters, lashes on the daily! As I got older, I have toned down my makeup a lot. However, every time I come across this picture, I am inspired all over again and truly miss those days! I decided to re-create this look because it really is an iconic look in my beauty history that I am always recognized and remembered by. However, since this was a decade ago, a lot of products have discontinued, so I have listed replacements!
The first question everyone always has is, What green eyeshadow is that?! LimeCrime had just launched their brand with a line of lipsticks particularly one shade called CosmoPop (I don't know if this one still exists) and so I fell in love with the brand back then and bought every product she launched at the time. This Chindadoll palette was the first in her collection to launch and I used the shade "Jade O Lade" on my lid. That green was everything! Unfortunately it is now non-existent and I haven't been able to find a green like that since! I warmed up the crease with Wedge, Cork and Brun from MAC (I remember because I used those for transitional shades for years!) topped off with black liner and lashes!
To re-create my look, I used the Mehron Earth palette in the shade Tropical Storm. It was the closest matte green that I found! It is not exact, but it works to get the look I was looking for!
For my lips, I used a shade called Peach Ice from a brand called La Femme that is as old of a brand as it could get! Naimie's Beauty Center used to carry the line, it was cheapy but quality and it would sell like hot cakes! That shade was everything! For my re-creation, I used the Anastasia lip palette vol. 1 to recreate the look with a lip gloss on top from Motives Cosmetics called Fizzle. It came pretty close if I do say so myself!
It's crazy when you remember the makeup and the products you did ages ago...that's when you know you LOVE makeup! I eat, sleep, drink - makeup.
