PATINA CONCRETE EYELIDS

Another makeup post!  I'm testing out all my new eye shadows and I have to say... I'm loving them!  I actually just went on ebay and bought a whole bunch more!  I'm sure you all realize that you need to have options!  Its kind of like shoes... you can't wear red shoes with a pink dress... well I'm sure you could, but its probably not recommended!  (Think Dorothy's ruby red shoes with a baby pink dress... barf!!  I even provided you with an example at the end of this post.... )  Same goes with makeup... you'd look ridiculous wearing some colors with some clothes!  And you have to test them all out so that you know which ones flatter your skin tones the most!  Or at least that's my reasoning!  Plus I'm buying each of them for $2.00 or under, so I'm thinking that's a pretty good bargain!  They say MAC on them, but I'm pretty sure they're knockoffs!  I could be wrong though.  I did go check out MAC's website, and they look identical, and some of the colors are even the same!  I suppose I'll just have to buy some authentic MAC makeup so that I know for sure if they're the same!  Either way... its still a step of from most of the drugstore makeup brands I've bought.

Today I did the same thing with my face.  I used a more pink blush that I got out of the SEPHORA Pallet I bought, just because my eyes were a little darker I thought I'd let my cheeks pop a little bit.  I used a neutral goldish color on my lip, which I love!  And that's pretty much it for the face!

For my eyes I started out using NARS primer.  I have to admit, this is the second time (aside from the other day) I've ever used a primer on my lids!  I was kind of skeptical that it wouldn't really help with anything... and boy was I wrong!  After I did my SATELLITE DREAMS post I noticed that my makeup was still going strong 15 hours later! Very impressed!  I think I'm going to have to try out some other primers, even though I do love this one (unfortunately its only a sample!) I think there might be a better product out there!  Anyways... back on topic!  I used PATINA on my entire eyelid, and then swept CONCRETE on the outer eye and then blended.  I followed up with mascara and some liquid eyeliner.  I'm rather happy with the results! 

I just wanted to say thanks to you all for the lovely comments that you have left me!!  They make my day.  I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday, and best wishes for the rest of the week!! 
Hate the outfits together, but love these shoes!  I do believe they are on my must have list!

You look pretty:) And your right. Its important to have tons and tons of options. My boyfriend doesn't get why I buys so many eyeshadow colors. But there are so many with different textures. I just cant resist.... lol
I really like the cheek color.
