Yellow/green/purple with BFTE

 Here's a quick, somewhat simple look I did last night. I wanted to use yellow, green, and purple. My sister said it looks very Mardi Gras and I suppose it does lol. If it were really Mardi Gras it would have been a lot more wild, probably with glitter and stuff, but I just wanted to keep it simple and "wearable" this time. ;)

Products I used:

-Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow in "Too Cool" (shimmery white on and around lid as base)
BFTE shadows in:
-Grape (purple on outer third)
-Lavish (yellow-green on middle)
-Lemon (yellow on inner third)
-Very Vanilla (matte vanilla to blend around edges)
-Whisper (apricot/violet duochrome on browbone and tearduct)
-Mississippi Mud (deep brown on brow)
-Loreal Lineur Intense Carbon Black felt tip liquid liner pen
-Sephora mini white pencil (waterline)
-Loreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes mascara
-Ardell latex-free lash adhesive
-Ardell #135 Black lashes
-NYX eyebrow pencil in Light Brown
-BFTE mineral foundation in Light Beige

Not as many products as I usually use, as you can see :) I was testing a few new products: the brow pencil, the mascara, and the cream shadow. I think the brow pencil is too light/orangey for my dark brows, boo. I'm still getting used to the mascara; I got it because it's supposed to be easy to remove using just water, the tubes slide right off. I've been losing a lot of lashes while removing makeup and just in general, I guess from being too rough with them. I bought this mascara back when it was new a few years ago but I didn't use it much so I'm not sure how it will be. I'm hoping it will help minimize wear and tear on my eyes and lashes.
The Maybelline Color Tattoo was used for the first time here, and this was part of why I made the look simple. I wanted to wear it for several hours to see how the product performed as a base. I wore it for 8 hours and didn't notice any creasing, so I will say I'm quite impressed so far! I plan to try different looks for different amounts of time and do a little review at some point. :)

I hope you liked this look and I hope you have a pleasant Sunday! Thanks for reading<33
