Makeup Monday – Rain, Drizzle and Fog

August 15, 2011 at 1:32 pm 14 comments

Today is an amazingly gorgeous day here in St. John’s, but let me fill you in on some stats… Sunny days in June: 6 (but the temperature was mostly single digits or low 10s, celsius that is), sunny days in July: 4, sunny days so far in August: 3. Most of this summer has had RDF… rain, drizzle and fog. E V E R Y single day.

So, instead of fighting it, let’s embrace it! We live in Newfoundland after all. So the makeup monday this week will be with the eyeshadows Rain, Drizzle and Fog. Let me introduce them:

Rain is a dark gray with blue shimmer. Intense like a storm cloud.
Drizzle is a medium gray with aqua and silver shimmer.
Fog is a light gray with highlights of pink and gold. It’s really, really pretty.

Later today we have promised to take Klara to a strawberry u-pick, and I didn’t want to show up there in a full smokey look. So I decided to apply the eyeshadows on my upper lid only and work with the darker shade to create a wing, or “cat eye” look.  Here is what it looks like (in the sun and in the shade):

I applied Fog all over the eyelid. Then I applied Drizzle in the crease, concentrating on the outer part and trying to form a wing shape (wider, and upward, on the outer part of the eye). Last I applied Rain in a triangle shape on the outer corner of the eye, working it upwards towards the eyebrow. I used a clean crease brush to blend all edges and applied a black mascara.

    Love the attitude! I remember the day years ago I decided not to let a rainshower keep me from my walk. That day changed my attitude to life and I have come to love rain, drizzle & fog. Why not? Just wear pretty eye-make-up! Marsha

    This is some RDF that I could really get used to. I would really like these three shadows for myself, but I couldn’t find them on the website. Gorgeous look for everyday too!

    Life is too short for bad eye make-up. This is certainly not it.
