Grimm Makeup Collaboration!

So today is going to be a little different from before. Todays look is a collaboration look with Taryn from I met her through a beauty group on facebook and after posting how much we both enjoy the tv series Grimm, we decieded to do a collaboration based of each episode.

Background on show: Based off the Brother's Grimm Fairytales. Episode one is about a twisted little red riding hood, the focus was not about the girl but more about the big bad wolf in the show. Episode two is about bears, and if you know your fairytales you know that goldilocks made a mess in their house. I'm really loving this show right now, and how they are able to mesh 2 of my favorite things together. Wich are cop shows and fairytales.

We decided to each do an episode. I did the first episode and based my look off of a few key elements from the show. All of the girls had on red sweaters, and they disappeared in the woods.
Products I used:
Covergirl Ultimate Finish Liquid Powder Make-up (classic ivory)
Mark Matte Powder (matte mid)
Shimmer Powder
Fashion Blush (1)
Mabelline Mineral Power (gentle pink)
Elf Mineral Eyeshadow Primer
Moi Minerals Eyeshadow (rockstar red)
Mineral Maven Eyeshadow (cat fight)
My Beauty Addiction Molten Mineral Eyeshadow (milk chocolate)
Hard Candy Powder Keg (Delinquent)
L.A. Colors Shimmer Loose Eyeshadow (snow white)
Hard Candy Powder Keg (gunpowder)
Elf Liquid Eyeliner (black)
Hard Candy Take Me Out Eyeliner (abyss)
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara (black drama)
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick (softshell pink)
Wet n' Wild Lipstick (522A)
Elf Minty Lip Gloss (new york city)

I really do love the basic story of little red riding hood. We all know the lines of:
My, Grandma, what big eyes you have.
All the better to see you with.
My, Grandma, what big ears you have.
All the better to hear you with.
My, Grandma, what big teeth you have.
All the better to eat you with...

In the clean version the woods man comes in and kills the wolf before the wolf can eat red. In the orignal version grandma and red get eaten and the woods man cuts them out. Basicly wolf dies, and everyone lives happy ever after.

Taryn did goldilocks and the three bears episode. Go check out her look. We will be doing another collab on Wed, 2 weeks from now. So stay tooned in for more collabs.

Until next time...
