Pride Parade 2012 Makeup

Hello all! Hope your Wednesday is going well. On the bright side the week is half over! :)

This past Sunday I went to the Pride Parade and decided to wear some colorful makeup. 

The look:
Products used:

To begin, I used my Dr. Jart + - Waterfuse BB Cream (now I'm all out [super sad face]) and my e.l.f. Studio Flawless Finish Foundation that also had SPF 15. I knew I'd be out in the sun for a few hours and needed protection. Next I applied my Urban Decay's Eye Shadow Primer Potion to my eyelids.

I tried to make some kind of rainbow using the colors I had in my e.l.f. Studio Makeup Clutch Palette and my Too Faced World Domination Tour All Access Backstage Beauty Kit (no longer available) that were also in my tie-dyed shirt.

From my e.l.f. palette, I used a shade of green, aqua blue, peach, and pink on my lid. I used a golden yellow on my brow bone and the purple under my lower lash line from the Too Faced kit.

For my eyeliner I used my Marbella: Permanent Eyeliner Pen. I really love this eyeliner, because its long lasting and doesn't smudge. That being said, I did have a really hard time removing it because I put it on thicker for this look. It stained my lids faintly mostly in the outer corner of my eye. When I put on makeup the next day it was hardly noticible. I will add a picture soon. I snapped one but I forgot to bring my camera with me to work. (Yes, I write posts at work since there is nothing else to do. )

I also use my Three Custom Color Specialist - creme to powder blush in "Beige" and the Andrea modlash Starter Kit from the giveaway I won (see post here). You can kind of see that the lash is starting to come off. This picture was taken after I got home from the parade. Sorry about the bad quality, its from my cell phone. 

Let me know what you think of the look :) If you also went to Pride in your city, how did you do your makeup?

As always, thanks for stopping by
