FOTD: Going Green

Hello my friends! I gotta say, these daily blog posts are keeping me busy! Today I thought I'd share my "Face of the Day", which is quite natural... and even though I used green eyeshadow and liner, I think that comes off pretty natural too! Something about green eyeshadow tends to bring out the yellow tones in my brown eyes, which I think makes them look a little more interesting.
Face...
  • Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Fresh Beige (T-zone) and Cover Girl NatureLuxe foundation in Maple (lately I've been combining foundations that have average staying power with Colorstay for a longer-wearing look)
  • Cover Girl & Olay Simply Ageless concealer in Light
  • Bare Minerals Summer Bisque (to set CG concealer)
  • Too Faced Amazing Face Powder in Perfect Nude (blotted over T-zone)
  • Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Light (dusted all over)
  • Cover Girl Cheekers blush in Sierra Sands (cheek contour)
  • Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore (apples of cheeks)
  • Sally Girl Shimmer Stripes in LOL (highlight cheekbones, nose)
Eyes...
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Laura Geller Baked Shadow/Liner in Forest Mist/Key Lime (just got this in my QVC Beauty Test Tube- full size... Used the lighter shade all over the lid, darker shade on outer part of lid and crease. Used the dark shade wet as an eyeliner with an angled brush- on top & bottom lashline.)
  • NYX Slide On Liner in Tropical Green on inner rim
  • Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara in Blackest Black (upper and lower lashes)
Lips...
  • Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee (makes a nice nude base)
  • Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Epic (deeper neutral for definition)
  • Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Pillow Talk (light peach with shimmer)

Daily Nuggets...
  • Made chicken tortilla soup today in the crock pot. We just ate it and I think it's officially one of the best things I've ever made in the crock pot!
  • Don't know what was going on today- but when I went to pick up my ingredients at Wal-Mart, the store was PACKED.
  • Getting ready to watch the big Alabama-LSU football game!
  • Posted my latest Shopping List Ideas this morning!

  3. I think it's awesome you find so many great drugstore finds! I have such bad luck with drugstore products. Do you think you could do a video or blogpost of drugstore products you think are worth checking out?

  7. Emily, have you ever tried "The Balm" makeup? Just found an awesome palette at T.J. Maxx for 19.99 called "The Balm and the Beautiful". They are creamy and awesome shadows. You might want to check it out!

  9. Pretty!! Just found your blog and Youtube channel and have been devouring all of your posts. Great stuff! I'm a mom to three cheerleaders, and your tutorials have been a huge help!

    Oh, and my Walmart is always crowded. Always! I try to go to Target if I can, but sometimes you just get better deals at Walmart.

    Have a nice weekend!

  10. Makes your brown eyes pop! Lovely! Roll Tide/Geaux Tigers! They are both my second favorite team. Ugh! LOL! I'm an Auburn fan btw.

  11. One of the reasons I enjoy watching your tutorials, FOTD, etc. is because I am dark haired, brown eyed and light/medium complected like you! I am so trying this! It does make your eyes pop, hopefully it will mine too!
    Thanks!

  13. My Walmart was packed today, too! I've come to the conclusion that the first weekend of the month is always like that.

    LOVE the green shadow. I love Laura Geller. Might have to go pick that up!

  20. I just love how you look as you were born with the makeup. You really can make anything look natural and beautiful. And green makes your eyes more warm, I would say. Definitely a nice look.
    I hope the Revlon lip butters will come to Europe as well. I would love to try few of these, they must be amazing.

  23. Emily, how do you get the Covergirl & Olay concealer to look so amazing on you?! I even bought the eye corrector but for some reason it just doesn't cover my dark circles. Do you use a brush to apply it or your finger?

  24. Your makeup is always so pretty and sits so nicely on your skin. It never looks like you're wearing anything foundation/powder-wise. I think you do black magic ;-) .. I always look like Im wearing makeup. =/
