Well, I guess I'm the first! My FOTD today is nothing great, I just wanted to show my new Mehron colors I got. They are similar to Kryolan in that they only work wet, but they are not paste-like at all, definitely more watercolor-like. The only way they can be worked with is when you mix them with water, and this is green, green mixed with black, and green mixed with white. I really like these "paints." They are so much fun! I hope to do many more FOTDs and some future DTBs with them and to get better at applying them, too! They are very versatile. Here is everything I used:

Face: Origins Halo Effect Instant illuminator for face

Madeleine Mono Facecolor in Tan- 4

L'Oreal HIP Powder Bronzer

MAC Powder Blush in Fleurry

Sparkle Gel Glitter Makeup for Face and Body

Revlon Colorstay Pressed Powder in Light/Medium

Eyes: Origins Halo Effect Instant illuminator for face

Madeleine Mono Facecolor in Tan- 4

L'Oreal HIP Powder Bronzer

MAC Powder Blush in Fleurry

Sparkle Gel Glitter Makeup for Face and Body

Revlon Colorstay Pressed Powder in Light/Medium

Mehron Paradise Makeup AQ Basic Palette using Green, Black, and

White

Estee Lauder Automatic Eyebrow Pencil in 03 Soft Black

MAC Fibre Rich Lash in Whole Brown

Lips: Blistex Fruit Smoothies in Melon Medley

Origins Halo Effect Instant illuminator for face

Madeleine Mono Facecolor in Tan- 4

L'Oreal HIP Powder Bronzer

MAC Powder Blush in Fleurry

Sparkle Gel Glitter Makeup for Face and Body

Revlon Colorstay Pressed Powder in Light/Medium

Maybelline shiny-licious in 80 cola-float

Alright, here we go!

Thankyou everybunny
I actually was up watching all the episodes of Lost: Season 3 on DVD to catch up for the next season with my husband when I did this, so when we were through (we actually finished it, yay!), I just went to bed, in a daze since by then it was 7 am, lol, and didn't even wash it off from having it on for hours (I know, I know). but lo and behold, I wake up later on today around 2pm (we are rockstars haha) and the eye makeup is still exactly the way I left it! This stuff is great! The costume shop where I got it also had Ben Nye cream color stuff for your eyes, but it had mineral oil and petrolatum as main ingredients, and I know me and my skin, and I just *couldn't* buy it, I just wouldn't use it, I don't use that type of stuff normally, and I couldn't bring myself to even for great results like dramatic styles. I'm so happy I found this stuff. Yes, it's water soluble, so if you get caught out in the rain, well, that's it, or if you cry, or if you eat something (this can also be used on the lips, it's great for a lovely matte look, but only some colors, same goes for the eyes), but the ingredients are wayyyyyy gentler and even include aloe at the *top* of the list. If that's not good for you, I don't know what is.

Oh! And empiricalbeauty, I love your look today! Your braids are beautiful! One day I have to get some put in!

Entipy, I love that green, is it the green that has the foil to it, or the other shadow, or all of it?

Okay, I promised pics of the Manhattan palette Andi got me, as well as the pearl strand Anna sent. So, here ya go! I took the pics this morning, but didn't have time until now to upload them. My brows were having a hard time cooperating this morning... And as always, my camera washed some of the color out because I know my crease doesn't look that faint IRL! Normally I don't toss in so many pics, but I couldn't figure out which ones were best. You take your pick LOL!

Wow, Aquilah, beautiful! That MAC Sundressing is definitely going on my wishlist! And your lashes look stunning! Did you curl them before you applied the Avon Uplifting, or no? I've heard good and bad things about it, and have been on the fence about it myself, so I'm curious as to how you like it and use it.
