Green Friday

It's Friday and I wanted to have some color on the lids at work as the rules are a little bit relaxed on corporate casual Fridays. As I keep saying again and again, my favorite color is green and I missed wearing it on my lids. I used four (but it can be just three) different MAC eyeshadows for this look. They are all from the permanent collection (I didn't count the highlighter, Goin' Bananas, which was from the C-Shock collection). All this limited edition hype is making me crave for some good old, reliable permanent colors from MAC. Please note that I did this look in about 10 minutes tops as I didn't want to be late for work, so please pardon any mistakes or imperfections.

I am wearing my beauty powder blush in Eversun and it's one of my favorite BPBs from my collection. It's a prettier, sheerer version of the popular MAC blush in Sunbasque, but I prefer Eversun because it is softer but definitely remarkable. It gives the pop of color that I need without making the look garish.

I also used my Joppa mineral foundation and I am really loving this. I got a full size pot for only $10 when they had it on sale, and I am so glad I got a good deal. I love the smooth finish and the great coverage. I am liking this mineral makeup company because they have awesome sales regularly (check out their clearance items) and the pigments/minerals are of really good quality.
