Color Me Bluetiful: Fun With Face Paint

Hello Bluetiful Ones!

Today's Color Me Bluetiful segment sort of combines a FOTD & "Blue Review" all in one. Consider it a "blue for one special" *wink*. It features an artsy look that I tried out with colors from the Wolfe Brothers Face Art & FX metallic/neon palette.

After Teneasha gifted me with this lovely palette recommended by world reknown make up artist Denessa Myricks at a workshop a few months back, I was dying for an opportunity to play with some of the colors. I must say that I was not disappointed. All it takes is a few drops of water to activate the color, and you're left with highly pigmented & long lasting shades. And trust, these colors are quite true to the name; it's certainly paint, so quick and even application is crucial for best results. Because once it dries, it's SET, and there is no turning back (unless you have some remover handy).

The look I played with features a thin metallic teal line on the lower lash line & extending towards the temple, soft metallic pink infused with a deep purple on the upper lid, a soft shimmer to create a subtle glow, and funky lashes. Check it out...
