FOTD: Providence and Grace Inspired Pin Up

I decided it was time to play with the products that I had received to review from Providence and Grace Fine Cosmetics.
Considering the fact I chose mostly neutral colors, I had an idea in mind of what look I wanted to create with the products (ie Pin Up Inspired). The fact that I have recently been dying in my hair black and majorly preferring wine to red color lipsticks made it quite easy and almost natural to choose to create such a look.
The one difference that I wanted to add into the look was w bit of color, I originally though perhaps a purple liner would be good. However, it is my opinion that brown eyes pop a bit more when a blue color is used. Thus I decided aqua would be a fun color to use as a liner.

I have created a look very very similar using Glamour Doll Eyes products. However I felt the colors in Providence and Grace had a bit more of a metallic look to them, thus it would make the look appear different. Besides the fact the lip color us definitely different compared to the Look I did using GDE.


Products used for Eyes:
Providence and Grace EyeShadow Primer
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yogurt
Matte Nude shadow from LA Colors Traditional Palette all over eye

Semi Closed Eye

Open Eye
I personally really like the use of blues as liner, anything from an dark navy to aqua (like I used in this look). I think for brown eyes it really makes the eyes pop more...true it more than likely does the same for any eye color. But whenever I wear blues...I notice I get more compliments.


On Lips:
Estee Lauder Lipliner in Tawny 03
Providence and Grace Lipstick in Bite
Providence and Grace Lip Glaze in Queen
