MSU Go Green Face of the Day

So, the Michigan vs Michigan State football game was a couple weeks ago, and I thought I would cheer on the team by going crazy with some shimmery green smoky eyes (MSU colors are green and white) and peach lips.  I also wore my blingy Spartans shirt.  Michigan State is playing Ohio State this evening, which is the other big game of the season for them, so this look would work for today, too.  Hmmm.  Maybe I need to replicate it seeing as how it worked last time (MSU won).

The star of this look is definitely the L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Golden Emerald.  It is ridiculously pretty.

Blurry to show that sparkle!

It sparkles on the eyes.

I'm convinced that MSU won the game because of my smoky eyes and sparkling Spartans shirt.

Go Green!  Go White!

Hey, I have a question.  It is "smoky" or "smokey" with an e?


  1. My goodness. Can you just please come do my makeup every day? Every look you do looks absolutely stunning.

    Also, I am super jealous of your red hair. So unique, but classically beautiful.

    Glad your makeup look sent some good juju to your team! ;)

  2. Your makeup always amazes me but can I just say...those lashes - I mean, for miles, stunning!

  3. I wish I had done some smoky green eyes again this past Saturday. MSU lost. I blame myself. :) P.S. My red hair is courtesy of Garnier.

  4. Thank you, Kimmy! In this case, a new tube of good mascara made all the difference.

  5. Really?! You look like you were BORN to be a red head!

  6. When I worked at Marshall Fields at the Elizabeth Arden counter, I worked with a couple of girls who were in cosmetology school who thought I should try going red with my hair because it would be flattering with my complexion. I guess they were right! I've been coloring my hair red ever since. Now I kind of have to color it because of all the grey.
