Black History Month Inspired Make Up (FOTD)

Today is the last day of Black History Month so I decided to go all out with my make up and do a dramatic FOTD(Face of The Day) with colors that are usually associated with the continent of Africa and also Black History.  Here’s my Black, Red, Green, and Yellow look.

All but one of the shadows I used came from the Coastal Scents 42 Matte Palette that I love.  For my brow highlight, I used one of My Favorite 13 MAC Eyeshadows in Arena.

Other products I used for my eye look were:  MAC Girl/Boy Brow set, MAC Paint Pot in Moss, NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk, MAC Superfine Liquid liner in On the Hunt, MAC Graphblack eye liner, NYC False Lashes and Loreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara.

Above and below are pictures without the flash to give you a more realistic idea of what this FOTD really looks like.

For my face I used: Black Opal Foundation Stick in Truly Topaz (as a concealer for certain spots).  MAC Mineralize Loose Powder Foundation in Dark, Ruby Kisses All Over Glow Bronzing Cream in #01 as my cheek highlight, MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Comfort (limited edition) as bronzer, Cargo Laguna Blush on apples of my cheeks, and Cover Girl Queen Collection Bronzing Powder in Ebony Bronze as my cheek contour.

I have to admit, I’m loving this lip combo.  I acutally didn’t even use a red lipstick.  I used MAC Morange, which is a bold orange.  I paired it with Clinique Lip Liner in Tawny Tulip, and MAC Lipglass in Wonderwoman (limited edition)


If you look in the middle of my lips, you can still see a hint of orange.

What look are you wearing today?

I really like this look & that lip combo is HOTT!

You look great! I love the eye make up, I couldn't pull that off 🙂

Thank you Michelle! Girl of course you could pull it off. It may not be an "everyday" look for you, but you could wear it for a special occasion. It's not an everyday look for me either. Ha ha! 🙂
