Face of the Day Challenge Calendar

Hello Beautiful People!

The lovely Nymphette415 (@Nymphette415 on Twitter) has once again posted her FOTD Challenge Calendar! This is the first time I'll be aiming to take part in this every single day.

Here's the Calendar itself for April, 2012:

So yesterday was bold lips, and I've been having some skin issues, so I just did the mouth instead of the whole face. I used Milani's HD Advanced Lip Color in Vivacious Fuschia, topped off with Avon brilliant Shine Lip Gloss in Gleaming Mauve.

And here's what it looked like! 

So today's Challenge is simply titled "Coral". Since that's a colour I NEVER wear, I thought why not go for it!! So I went for it, on my eyes and on my lips. I used my Coastal Scents 88 Ultra Shimmer Palette and an L.A. Colors Lip Gloss in Sweet Melon. From the palette I used the bright Coral colour 4 shadows in from the bottom and 3 in from the right all along the outer 2/3 of my eye, up into the crease as well. The I used the shadow directly above that on the inner part of my lid. My highlight was the pale gold shadow at the very top, 2 in from the right, and the one 4 down from the top and 2 in from the right I used in the outer corner of my eye and in my crease. 

For the liner I used my NYX Slide On Eye Pencil in Jet Black to create an elongated wing, to lengthen my eyes, since my eyes are quite close-set and these kinds of colours can tend to take away the defenition of my features.The rest of my face I kept bronzed and healthy looking. I quite like the result!!!

Full Face - Natural Light (slightly overcast)

I know I look a bit shiny - it is SUPER hot in Barbados and I was under a hot light to boot!! But with this look I kind of like that natural glow.

Hope you enjoyed! Stay tuned for tomorrow's FOTD Challenge!!
