The “Boy” Challenge FOTD

So once in awhile I get into a makeup rut or more so a loss of inspiration.  The last time this happened I asked a member of the opposite sex to pick a color.  I do this without telling them why.  I do this because they usually pick colors I never think to use with my makeup and men just think differently.   He picked NEON GREEN!  Like I said, they tend to pick colors I never think to use.  Check that look out here.

So I don’t like to ask the same person twice because then they know what I’m doing.  I asked a different person and they said Maroon & Grey.  At first I thought ok… Maroon & Grey.  Doable…  Then I started to think about it more.  Maroons tend to lean warm and Greys tend to lean cool…  Hmmm ok.  AND red tones are pretty much one of the most unflattering colors to wear on your eyes.   So now you see where “The Boy Challenge” came from.

I like a good challenge and this is what I came up with.  Maroon is a little hard to capture on camera but I tried.

Ok so I know you guys want a breakdown but this one is going to be hard to breakdown.    I dabbled in the 120 palette a little and used a mystery Stila maroon shadow.

Hope you enjoyed my little challenge to myself!!!  Thanks for stopping by my loves!
