FOTD Friday: Goin’ green on the lids….

| November 20, 2009 | 17 Comments

So the other day something tragic happened. I was making my green smoothie…like I do every evening for the following day. This particular smoothie was probably one of the best I had ever made (that’s my Drake remix, haha!). It was chock full of kale and spinach with a sweet amount of coconut and almond milk. I tossed in some apple pieces, a banana, strawberries, pineapple and topped it off with cinnamon. It was beyond tasty.

So tasty that I guess the floor wanted try some too (haha, love that Mama Soybean).


But how beautifully tragic is that spill? The formation is kinda awesome. And it is a gorgeous shade of green. It was so pretty that my silly self had to take a picture of it and tweet it. Sometimes you really have to find beauty in….odd circumstances. Like in a green smoothie committing drinkicide.

Anyway….it inspired me to play around with some greens. So I did!!

I used MAC’s Humid for the outer-V.


That was one of my FIRST eye shadows. Humid holds a special place en mi corazon. I was going for a pretty subtle green eye. Didn’t want anything to POW, ya know? And I wanted plain cheeks with a glossy brown lip.

But if you look closer, I made a ton of application mistakes while in a hurry. Experimenting before work is never a good idea. But y’all know I don’t care. Posting my mistakes is kinda fun…..kinda.

Here we go!

Stay beautiful,

    That spill looks like the color of OPI greenwich Village. At first glance, I thought you spilled a polish! I think I might have to put on that color when I get home now! Anyway, very pretty eyeshadow, as always!
