NBA Playoffs Makeup Series: Miami Heat

Hello my lovely ladies!

So it's on, my Celtics VS. Heat! So excited! Here is my look for the Miami Heat. Like my Celtics look, I opted not to use false lashes because I used an orange/coral liner on top of the black shadow. I made the liner by wetting my angled brush with MAC Fix+ and dipping it into Splash Cosmetics loose eyeshadow in Sunkiss Gold. Don't be afraid to experiment with the things you already have. I wasn't about to go and buy an orange liner just for this look, so I had to improvise. Remember that there are no limits when it comes to makeup so just experiment and have fun! :)

lani! beautiful blending as always;) can't wait to see more team inspired looks. Btw, how do you like the mac careblend powder. Would you consider that more like a powder foundation or just to use it to set a liquid foundation? let me know!

From the eyes to the lips, everything was executed perfectly. I'd kill for your blending skills :D

You're not a Lakers fan? Awww booo! Hahaha j/k. Can't wait to see your Lakers look.

BTW, how do you like Maybelline's define a brow? Do you think it's comparable to MAC's spiked brow pencil?

LJ said...

Lisa: lol! i go for the greeeen! ;D thanks girl! i realllly like the maybelline define-a-brow. some consider it a dupe for spiked. i used to use spiked but it was getting a little pricey to purchase all the time. ever since i used the maybelline one, i usually stock up when they go on sale at long's. i think it works just as good. i still have a little left of my spiked so i use it to finish it up here and there. hope that helps! ;)
