Here is today’s EOTD featuring the Avon True Color Quad in Sandy Corals (reviewed here) and my new favorite weapon, Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus 12! I have practically no relationship with mascara, because I never understood how to use it. Every time I tried one on, my lashes would look the same and I’d end up with black brush imprints on my lid or under eye area.
I never knew I wanted lusher lashes until now! Luckily, my mom had an extra bottle because of a sale purchase a few months ago. So now, I have my own. 🙂
It’s got a two-sided applicator, one side a comb and the other a coil. I haven’t used it all that much to master application, though. There’s a slight blue-grey tinge to it that I don’t mind and actually enjoy quite a bit. It’s also a fibre-based formula, which has fibres that stick to your lashes, helping to elongate them. At first, I thought they were hairs from my mom’s lashes!
Here’s my whole FOTD, with a sort of yellow light from the Vargas Museum’s Cafe:
Face: Ahava Light Foundation (Sand), The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Pore Minimiser, Benefit Lemon Aid. Eyes: Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad (Sandy Corals), MAC Amber Lights, no mascara yet, The Body Shop Brow Kit. Cheeks: Revlon Mineral Blush (Roseberry). Lips: Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet (La Distinguée).
And now, a short diagram for the eyeshadow quads, if you’re a noob like me:
This is one way I’ve been using quads. I like a bit of gradation, so I shade according to the “shape” of my eye. It juts out so I enhance the “sphere” it creates by adding the darker shadows on the sides and using the lighter shadow on the center of the lid, which is the “protrusion,” aka where the light would hit a sphere.
Because the Avon quad I used doesn’t have much of a shimmer, I enlisted the help of MAC Amber Lights’ coppery self. Anyway, I hope that helps! Please feel free to share some how-tos with me, too. 🙂
Very pretty eyes and colors….jealous. 🙂
Hee, thank you so much. 🙂
