7 Deadly Sins Series--*ENVY*

Hello, all of my lovely followers! I hope all you other Americans had a sparkling and fantastic 4th of July! I had a very busy week, as I am trying to prepare a lot of stuff for my upcoming vacation in 2 weeks, so I apologize for the lack of posts. I will definitely try and post as much as I can before I go. Anyway, let's move on to the look!

ENVY is defined as "a desire to deprive other men/women of theirs". It is not be be confused with greed however, which is a desire for material things. Envy is more general. The punishment for the envious is to have your eyes sewn shut with wire because they have gained sinful pleasure for the things you cannot have. The virtue for envy is kindness.




The look I came up with isn't particularly wearable, but it is what came to mind when I thought of envy. I wanted it to be super dramatic! If you guys would like to see a more wearable look for envy, just let me know! And, I sincerely apologize for not having any full-face shots. By the time I got a good shot of my eye(s), my camera died (boo!).


Eyes:
  • BH Cosmetics 120 Eyeshadow Palette, (white, greens, teals, black)
  • Wet N Wild Liquid Eyeliner in Black
  • Rimmel Soft Kohl Pencil in White
  • Rimmel Soft Kohl Pencil in Jet Black on eyebrows
  • Ardell Lashes

Face:
  • MAC Studio Fix NC20/25
How gorgeous is this "ENVY" ring?!



I really hope you guys enjoy this look. It was a difficult one to create and is a bit different from what I usually do, but I wanted to venture out of my comfort zone a bit. As always, if you have any questions, comments, concerns, just let me know! <3

  4. LOL Meredith! Obviously I took your WTF the wrong way at first, but YAY! I'm so happy you girls like it. I was feeling kinda "meh" about this one, so it feels good to know you guys enjoy it!!

    Unfortunately, I don't have full face shots because my camera died :( I really wish I did! But my lips were verrrry nude.

    I know you can do this look Meredith, and shoot, even BETTER! Good luck and I would love to see your version if and when you do it!

    Love you all! <3
