Anti Valentine’s Day

HI Guys and Dolls!Β  I recently got a bunch of sample jars from BFTE and when I was opening them (and Ohing & Ahing) I opened a bunch of greens around the same time, the last being Kiss the Frog. SoΒ  little light went on over my head: PRINCESS & THE FROG TUTU! While I haven’t seen the Movie yet (shame on me) I’m really excited about it, since it takes place in Historical New Orleans, AND Disney (FINALLY) made history with this movieΒ  having the first Black Disney Princess! YAY!

The Look ended up taking a darker turn that my original vision, but I like this much more! It sort of morphed int a Anti-Valentines day look! I know this year tons of Makeup “guru’s” will do pink, purple, and brown V-day looks, so I thought we should have an antidote to that! I will probably also do a V-Day look, maybe with colors form the UD Alice in Wonderland Palette (I didn’t buy it, I just have most of the colors already!

Clearly my foundation doesn’t match

I listed a few dupes for you, but the BFTE shadows I used are Awesome and pretty inexpensive. Remember they sell sample jars for $2 also!

Products used:

Eyes:

UDPP

Urban Decay Zero (A Sheer Black Eyeshadow)

BFTE Grassy ( A matte slightly Yellow Grass-Green)

BFTE Kiss the Frog ( Hard to dupe, I say mix a light Brown, and muddy green, and a yellow. Better off just getting a sample of this. Forrest by BFTE is really similar but more green.)

NYX White ( a Matte White)

BFTE 1939 (NARS Night Porter is really close, but it’s harder to work with)

Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in “Zero”

MAC Fascinating Eye Kohl (any white Kohl Pencil)

BFTE Mint ( a Cool matte or satin minty green. Try the 88 palette)

Clinique High Impact Mascara

Red Cherry Lashes #747M

Face:

Laura Mercier Oil-Free Face Primer

Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer in Porcelain

MUFE HD Concealer (want a review? Let me know)

MUFE HD Powder

MAC Emote Blush (Contour)

Blush on the lover left side of the 42 Matte e/s & Blush Palette (review coming SOON)

Lips:

DuWop Lip Venom Prime

I did a few different things:

NYX Purple Rain Lipliner

MAC Girl About Town Lipstick

MAC Kirsch Mattene

Cover Girl Lipgloss (forgot the name)

Thanks for stopping by my Peanut Gallery! Remember to be Bright, Bold, & Beautiful, Just Be yourself!

    nice look! I don’t get the big deal over the “black princess” though… were mulan and jasmine not ethnic enough? it was a cute movie though.

      WHOA! everyone has an ethnicity, so I’m not sure I know what you mean by “ethnic”. Your comment comes off as bigoted. That’s like saying “little girls don’t need black barbies because there are Asian and Indian ones! that’s enough diversity” Little girls need role models that represent them as well as ones that don’t, so they can subconsciously learn that all women are beautiful. But maybe I just feel that way because I had dolls of every color as a child.
