grape madness!

This look was inspired by xsparkage's video on youtube. I absolutely loved the look and did my own spin on it. And I love the way it turned out. It reminded me on neon green and purple grapes! So I recreated it this morning before work and got a ton of compliments on it! These pics were taken AFTER work, I was sitting in the car waiting for my mom to get out of a store. So keep in mind I was pretty tired in these pics, and the make up wasn't freshly applied (was applied around 9 a.m. and these pics were taken around 4:30 p.m.). But here ya go:

Here is the link to 120 palette code: 

I started of using Urban Decay's Primer Potion all over the lid and under the eye. I then started off applying colors D6 and C9 (a mix) to give it a bright color with just a tiny bit of shine. I packed that on the lid to get the brightness I wanted and made sure it was applied evenly. I then moved on to number F4 which is a bright blue and applied it to the crease, making sure to blend it slightly into the green so I don't have a harsh line. Above that I took L7 and used it as a highlight under the brow bone.I then lined my upper lash line with a pen style liquid liner then on the bottom waterline I used a black gel liner. On the lower lash line I used a bright purple, number J2, I used this wet to create an intense purple liner look. To finish off the eye look I applied mascara and filled in my brows with a matte brown eyeshadow.

To do my face, I started off with my Hard Candy face primer, followed by my Revlon Colorstay foundation. I applied both using my hands. After that I applied blush to the apples of my cheeks swept up towards my temple. I applied I tiny bit of concealer under my eyes and blended with my fingers. To finish off my face I applied my setting powder. It comes with this akward sponge on top, so I just dab it on my face then blend out with a fluffy face brush. And finally I added Elf's lip stain in Fashionista (without the gloss side) and Avon's lipstick in a twinkle pink.
