Nerd's Candy!

I had to run some errands today and decided to post my look for today. I've worn this look a couple of times now and I REALLY love it. So I figured I'd give everyone a look!

This mascara creates some AMAZING lashes!

love the hint of green at the bottom there.

I started off with Urban Decay's Primer Potion. I then applied a white cream (it's actually that white halloween makeup) to my eyes and let it dry a bit, this stuff actually works REALLY nicely as an eyeshadow base. You MUST use a primer underneath though because it WILL crease on its own. I got the tube for 67 cents, and its gonna last me for a LONG time *score!*. I then took a paddle brush and started to pack on the teal blue (Urban Decay's, Electric). I then worked on the crease using the a mix of the two purples from the Physician's Formula POP Eyez collection (for green eyes). And to blend it out and brighten them up a little I added a mineral eyeshadow from L.A. Colors in Purple. I made sure to blend all these colors nicely. I then added a bit of the light blue shimmery color (from the Physician's Formula palette) to the middle of the lid to add a bit of dimension because the Electric eyeshadow is a matte color. Lastly I just took a white color from my NYX palette as my highlight. I then took my Maybelline gel liner in black to my waterline and set it with the black from my NYX palette. I then took a tiny bit of the light blue eyeshadow again (from the physicians formula palette), and added to my inner eyes (tear duct), and to tone it down I added a bit of the white shimmer from the same pallete to open up the eyes. To add a little bit of flare , I then took the bright green towards the bottom of the palette to line my lower lash line and bring out a wing. To finish off the eyes I added Urban Decay Supercurl mascara and filled in my brows with darkest brown in my NYX palette.

I then got started on my face. First I applied my Hard Candy primer and my foundation over top. I then added blush to the apples of my cheeks. I finished off the face with Urban Decays finishing powder and blended it in with a fluffy brush. And I set all my face make up with Urban Decay's setting spray. Lastly I added a bit of lip color to finish off my entire look! I hope you enjoy it!
