EOTD - Yesterday I was Cool As A Cucumber!



I was actually going to do this post yesterday but the hubby decided that he had wanted stay on here all day long!

Anyways,

I have a love hate relationship with the palette "Cool As A Cucumber" by Wet n Wild!

The colors are so gorgeous! But not very pigmented at all. :-( I have to layer on the color to get it to pop. Which is alright. I did like the outcome.




 As you can tell I only used the two shades of green, simply because that nice purple eggplant color just wouldn't show up!

First I applied the light green to the inner half of the lid and underneath.
Then applied the darker green e/s to the outer part of  the lid now this one I applied diagonally as though I was doing a winged out liner starting at the middle of the eye to where my eye socket stops. (Right at the crease bone) I had to keep applying the darker green to get it as pigmented as possible.  I also put the darker green underneath the eye.
 Next, I applied more of the lighter green and patted it and lightly blended where the dark green began for a nice transition. I also patted a little bit around the darker green and blended.
I then put on my liner and then falsies and I also tightlined the water line on the top and bottom.




This is a very subtle eyeshadow look that I did today! (well yesterday!) ha ha

 
I am also wearing Ardell falsies in 102 Demi's
GOSH's face primer in Classic
For Foundation I used Maybelline's 24 hour one.. I kinda don't like it!
For liquid liner I used Quo's liquid liner.
 For mascara I used L'oreal's Million lashes
For Blush I used Tarte's cheek stain in Tickled
I am also wearing GEO Ash Wing Circle Lenses by Candylens.com



I'm just pissed that the purple didn't show! But I wasn't expecting it to be since the swatch didn't turn out that nicely! 

On lighter skin who knows how this will work but if you do have lighter skin let me know how you liked it! <3

I also noticed too that they went on a little patchy and slightly creased on me even with an eye primer! So I don't know if I'll use this palette again unfortunately! :-(

Thank you for reading
