Makeup Tutorial: Golden Green, Lavender, Bronze And Life Of A Bun!

Here’s the makeup tutorial I promised! I wore this for the first NDP 2012 media event I attended with the bloggers, and it received plenty of compliments! It’s not dramatic or OTT, in fact, it’s very wearable and I would categorize it under a daily look. It’s also not too difficult to create. Try it! :)

Have you read my second post for NDP 2012? You can see my 16-year-old face. LOL.


Eyeshadow Primer – UDPP Eden

Eyelid – Makeup Geek Shimmermint (inner 2/3); Makeup Geek Unicorn (outer 1/3)

Inner Corner – Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma

Contour Area – Makeup Geek Cocoa Bear. I really love Cocoa Bear. The warm brown really blends nicely into my skintone.

Outer V – None

Brow Bone Highlight – Makeup Geek Shimma Shimma

Lower Lash Line – Urban Decay Smog

Eyeliner – L’Oreal Color Infallible Emerald Lame; Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Liner Black Ink. I applied Emerald Lame first, then Black Ink over it so that a little Emerald Lame peeks out above Black Ink, for a more dimensional feel. Love this effect.

Mascara – L’Oreal Collagene Mascara


Falling in Love with the L’Oreal Color Infallible Eyeshadow Emerald Lame!

Recently, I find myself incredibly drawn to green things. I was never a sucker for green, in fact, I HATED the color green.

When my Orientation Group Leader for our Freshmen Orientation Camp back in university called me up a few nights before camp and told me to wear a green t-shirt because our group’s team color was green, my face turned green too. I had not a single thread of green in my wardrobe and had to borrow a green tank top from my sister.

So, I have no idea why anything green attracts me so much lately. I’ve been buying green tops, green bottoms, green bags, green eyeshadows, green eyeliners… I think I’m going through a green-phase. I hope it doesn’t turn awry soon, meaning I suddenly dislike green again overnight.

In my previous post, I did a review on the Pupa Multiplay Triple Purpose Eye Pencil 02, a unique malachite green eyeliner. Please go get impressed with it. Lol.

One of the green things acquired in my green phase is the L’Oreal Color Infallible Eyeshadow in Emerald Lame. There were only 2 colors available when I was at the 30% BHG sale. The other was purple.

Also, even though it clearly spells as Infaillible on the packaging, it is spelt as Infallible everywhere else. Why? Just use Google Translate ‘la couleur infaillible’ and you’ll get ‘Color infallible’! The former is recognized as French. So, there. =)

Green is Gorgeous

Asking a green-crazy me to make a choice between a purple and green is akin to asking a spider to make a choice between eating a flower and a big juicy beetle.

The green was the choice to make, more so because the color captivated my heart the moment I swatched it! I was like swatch >> WOAH! >> take a new one >> throw it into my shopping bag.

By the way, I got the last one. Whew!

L’Oreal Color Infallible Eyeshadow in Emerald Lame is a black-based green peppered with a uniform distribution of gold shimmer.
