On Saturday, I was a guest bartender at a jazz lounge. The band "Mint Condition" performed and there were two sold out shows. I didn't think I knew who the band was, until I heard some of their songs. They're an R&B group. They really put on a great show and the people there had such a great time! After each show, the band members sat at a table and did a quick meet and greet to sign CD's and take pictures. I thought that was pretty cool. Anyway....here's how my makeup turned out for the evening....my boyfriend named this "smokey jazz bar" lol.
I only had like 30 seconds before I had to rush out of the door....so I really wasn't able to get a good pic of the look. This was all I had time for lol. I almost wiped this off and started over with different colors. I decided to use black with the blue at the last minute and I had already put the blue base and lid color on...so when I added the black e/s, it was hard to keep it from looking too purple or navy. I had to mess with this a bit and it ended up taking me forever. Does this happen to you guys?? :-/ I'm glad that I didn't wash it off and start over because it ended up looking good....not my favorite though...I would do a few things different next time I attempted this color combo lol.
Here's what I used:
Inglot jumbo eye pencil #85 and NYX jumbo eye pencil in Electric Blue-base
Sephora-swimming pool no 37-middle lid and lower lashline
MAC Black Tied-crease
MAC Carbon-inner crease and outer v
MAC Electra-inner corners and to soften the black
MAC Gesso-browbone (didn't like, so I added a little UD uzi-which I hated even more, so I think I ended up adding something else but I can't remember lol)
MAC Peachykeen blush and Harmony contour, Pearl highlight
I wore covergirl l/s in Darling and then decided to put Viva Glam Gaga 2 l/s and l/g over it.
I hope that everyone had a good weekend!
