Summer Tutorials: Taman Negara

Are they talking about Fall already? But I'm not done with Summer! In fact, I'm just getting started!
Summer's my favorite season that I love celebrating it every year with my clothes, makeup, tan and trips to the beach.
This is the first Summer '10 Tutorial inspired by Malaysia's National Park, Taman Negara.

Video tutorial, pictures and product listing after the jump!

I'm working (more like planning to work) on my stamina to prepare me for Taman Negara some day. The Boy has been there when he was fresh out of school and according to him, it was one of the best experiences that he has had.

This summer look incorporates several shades of green with accents of brown and bold lashes to depict the forest. The rest of the face and lips are kept nude to neutralize the look.

Items Used:

I Nuovi Illumina Makeup Base in Divine
Graftobian HD Creme Foundation in Enchantress
Ben Nye Banana Visage Powder

Milani Glimmerstripes in Terra Glimmer

Revlon Color Burst Lipstick in Soft Nude
Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lipgloss in Kirk

Elf Mineral Eyeshadow Primer
Ben Nye Lumiere Creme Wheel (green and yellow)
Barry M Dazzle Dust in #14 Khaki
Barry M Dazzle Dust in #97 Dark Chocolate
I Nuovi D27 Eyeshadow in Bamboo
I Nuovi D27 Eyeshadow in Techno
MAC Eyeshadow in Ricepaper
Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in White
Urban Decay Ink for Eyes in Zero (black)
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Bourbon (brown)
I Nuovi Brow Cake in Oak
I Nuovi Pro Lash EX 11

It's clever Connie, with 2 different color bases, make the transition so perfect and almost duochrome -ish. Love that you're back with (as usual) awesome tutorial *happy*.
P.S: Beautymaker awakening gel is also useless for me. Tons of alcohol in it could cause milia on your skin.

Connie De Alwis said...

Thanks :) Yeah, all those alcohol should not be good for long term usage
