“Color Block” FOTD / My Parrot Eyes!

Thought I’d share a look I did in May for submission to a contest. The challenge was to create a color blocked look using at least one L’Oreal True Match product on any part of your face—which explains why I’m holding up a bottle of foundation. That was my L’Oreal product. :)

Products used: (1) L’Oreal True Match Foundation in W5 “Sand Beige,” (2) MUD Blue Corrector #3, (3) NYX 5-Color Eyeshadow Palette in “I Dream Of St. Lucia,” (4) Maybelline NY Eyestudio 2-in-1 Impact Shadow Liner, (5) NYX Lipliner Pencl in “Pinky,” (6) Some Mascara (can’t remember which), and (6) No.7 Blush in “Honey.” 

I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out since I didn’t really practice anything beforehand. I initially wanted to do a look using only two main colors, but the colors were so tropical-looking that I just had to keep going! So I ended up using orange, pink, yellow, blue, and green—a combination that reminds me of a parrot. :D

Looking back, I think I should have done some contouring and pulled my hair back for the photos… BUT I still really like this look anyway. I don’t know where I would be going with such a lot of colour on my face, but it was definitely fun to do! :) Blending was not too difficult because my NYX eyeshadows weren’t overly pigmented, which was both good and bad in this case I guess. Really wish I could have gotten that yellow on the inner corner of my eyes to be a lot brighter! Oh well. Fun fun! :)

p.s. I did end up being one of the winners of that contest, but I did not avail of the prize since they were tickets to an event that I couldn’t have made it to anyway. Boo.
