EOTD: bhcosmetics Take Me To Brazil Greens...

Sneaking in another EOTD before August flies out the window - not that I mind because it's been one of the most hectic months in my working life, and I'll be glad to say farewell to a whole heap of stress and pressure, and gidday to what I hope will be a far calmer (and more blogpost-friendly) September 


This particular day turned out to be crazy as all get-out, and my serene green colour scheme worked overtime to keep me from losing the plot. Thank goodness for bhcosmetics and their Take Me To Brazil Palette!

I must have had an intuition about how challenging the day was going to be because I employed all my tricks to create this intensely emerald look, starting with a base of Face of Australia Budgeproof Eyeshadow in Poison Ivy - it's a luscious cream that shadows adhere to exceptionally well. Over that went a blend of the two greens above, with the matte black along the lower lashline, and in the crease. My waterline thankfully stayed well coated for most of the day with Chi Chi Black is Black Waterproof Gel Eyeliner...


On my visage was Mirenesse Liquid Silk Foundation, cheeks were the middle pan from the BYS Coral Me In Blush Trio, and lips were the stunning Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer in Smokey Quartz (this pic was taken before the you-know-what hit the fan ha ha)...


I literally fell into bed that night, but not before religiously removing all my slap - I was so tired I can't even remember doing it, but fortunately my automatic pilot was still functioning I managed to get the office chaos sorted out late in the evening, and the day wasn't a complete write-off as I came home to find a delivery of cosmetic goodies on the doorstep, which was an instant pick-me-up - sigh...what would I do without colour and makeup 

Take care of you,
