FOTD 5-19-10 (Panacea81 Nautical Inspired)

Lauren Luke is absolutely brilliant! She was the first guru I ever watched on YouTube,
and the one that I learned all my tips and tricks from. :) If it weren't for her, I wouldn't know the difference between a lid color and a crease color, or a flat shader brush and a blending brush! She really taught me all the basics, and she's always
been one of my favorite YouTubers. Yesterday I was watching a few of her videos, and I found a tutorial she had posted
called "Nought to Nautical sexy make up look for summer"and it's become one of my all time favorite looks. It's really really easy to do, but looks amazing and like it took you much more time than just five or so minutes. I really think that this look would be universally flattering on all women, no matter your skin color or eye color. Lauren Luke totally
created magic with this
look, and I definitely had to try it out! I filmed a tutorial this morning re-creating it, BUT I rambled too much and couldn't cut out enough, so it's sitting in iMovie right now edited down to 12 minutes. :( Gosh I hate that those of us without partnerships only get 10 minutes! Anyways, I'm sure I'll re-film it sometime soon because I plan on doing this amazing look A LOT! =)

Products list:

-Neutrogena moisturizer
-Rimmel Foundation Primer
-Maybelline Mineral Power Concealer
-Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
-Rimmel Stay Matte Press Powder
-E.L.F. Blush & Bronzer

-E.L.F. primer
-NYX Jumbo Pencil in "Milk" on inner corner, lid, and browbone.
-MAC Pigment in "Vanilla" on the lid.
-For the crease, I mixed two colors together--ULTA eyeshadow in "Bayou" and Maybelline eyehsadow in "Silver Lining" to get a shimmery gray/blue color.
-Right on the outer corner and crease I put the Glamour Doll Eyes shadow in "MIngles"
-Glamour Dol Eyes shadow in "MIngles" used wet as a liner on both the top and bottom lashline.
-Love My Eyes eyeliner pencil in "Diva" on the waterline. (an electric blue)
-Covergirl Lashblast Luxe mascara

(NOTE: In the actual tutorial (and in the re-creation I'll film), Lauren finishes the look with red lipstick. When I took these pictures yesterday, I was about to head off to work so I couldn't do the red lips. Here's what I used instead!)
~L'Oreal H.I.P. Jelly Balm in "Plush"
