Green Earth Makeup + Exciting News

September 30, 2016

You’re probably sick of me talking about the Colourpop Eyeshadow in So Quiche by now, but I did promise in my ‘August Favourites‘ that I would be posting a look using the colour. Well, today’s the day!

The colour is so unique and seems to change in a variety of light. It’s got an olive green base with duo chrome reflects that seems to shift from gold, to purple, to pink. My current favourite way to wear it is with a reddish-pink hue blown out in the crease. It’s a different kind of look from what I’m used to, but I love the way the colours contrast, yet somehow still compliment each other. I also think it’s a great combo for transitioning to fall – it’s still colourful without being too bright or in-your-face.

I used the Colourpop Creme Gel Colour (a.k.a. my current obsession) in Get Paid along my waterline for a little extra glimmer, and decided to use a light brown colour smudged along the lash line to soften the look ever so slightly. The eyes turned out pretty sparkly, so I decided to use matte products on the rest of my face. I didn’t even use any highlighter! *gasp*

I went with the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte in Lust For Blush – an oldie but a goodie for my lips. I had actually forgot how much I loved this lipstick until I whipped it again out for this look. I also really liked how the pink colour mirrored the shadow in my crease.

Exciting News

After two years of blogging, I have finally purchased my own domain!!! So now, instead of searching to find my cozy little corner on the Internet, you can simply type OK, it may be a little more exciting in my eyes…but I had to share my enthusiasm with you! EEEEEKKKKKK! AHHHHH!

Perhaps I’m still feeling all warm and fuzzy inside after celebrating two years of blogging. Or maybe it’s the arrival of fall that has me incredibly inspired lately. Either way, things are getting serious over here on Beauty by Birdy and I can’t wait to get to work and share more fun content with you!
