Look of the Day: French Fries and Cherry Popsicles

Hey, everyone! I present to you my latest "look of the day":

French Fries and Cherry Popsicles Look of the Day

Why the yummy-sounding, yet completely random title, you may ask? Essentially, the sweet and savoury moniker was hatched from the central aspects of this look. The base of the eye look is NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencil in French Fries, aptly named due to its golden brown, glistening hue. And the look I created for the lips was one emulating that elusive "just ate a cherry popsicle" flush that is so fun during the summertime. So that's it- cherry lips and french fry eyes!

And here are the two products that inspired me to create the look:

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in French Fries and Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Tint Lip Sheen in Manic Pink

And this is the finished product!

The Breakdown

Foundation: MAC Pro Longwear NC20 (using a sample of this; not sure it's quite the right shade for me!)
Concealer: Cle de Peau in Ivory
Powder: MAC Blot in Medium
Bronzer: Chanel Luminous Bronzer Powder in Amber Rose
Blush: Sleek Flamingo

Brows: Anastasia Brow Powder Duo in Ash Blonde
Primer: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
Eye Shadows: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in French Fries (as base on lid, outer corner, and crease), MAC Amber Lights (on lid and crease as an accent), Laura Mercier Sandstone (on brow bone and inner corner)
Eyeliner: Tarte SmolderEyes Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eyeliner in Brown
Mascara: Clinique Lash Doubling in Black

Lip balm: Hevea Blackberry and Chamomile (worked wonderfully as a base for the lip colour)
Lip colour: Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Glossy Tint Lip Sheen in Manic Pink

And a few more shots of the look:

It was definitely a fun look to create and wear- sultry, but still summery!
