Today's guest FOTD is my husbands cousin Liz. I've known Liz since before I knew my hubby. I used to babysit her and her brother at the YMCA! Small world!
I got Liz into the MAC makeup scene this year. It's so easy to get hooked once you visit a counter to get your makeup done. Lately Liz has been venturing into the world of brights. She's a bold cookie. I can't wear them. Well... I can but I don't wanna. LOL
Anyway, on her most recent trip to MAC Liz picked up Going Bananas and Sky Blue. Since she is Owen's Godmother he bought her Sassy Grass. These are some bright shades. Krystal at the Macy's MAC counter at Ross Park Mall showed her how to use Sky Blue and Going Bananas together. But once I sent Liz this look that was shown by Christine from Temptalia.com, she HAD to know how to do it.
Now my collection is not nearly even a fourth as extensive as Temptalia. However, we made it work ;) We didn't follow her steps to a "T" but we used what we had and I think gave a pretty respectable showing.
This is Liz's first time wearing brights, and my first time working with them. I was especially nervous about the matte shade of Sassy Grass. Matte's and I don't get along, but apparently I apply them better on other people lol
Without further ado:
For this look I used:
