*Football Friday* Hawkeye Game Face!

Today, I bring to you a true "game face".  While I'm using this as an Iowa Hawkeye look, it could also be used for a Pittsburg Steelers look.  The SO is fans of both teams, so I have to watch.  While I don't really consider this as a wearable look, it would be appropriate for a game or a party. 

When researching on YouTube on different looks as inspiration I found several that I liked.  I went to go do this and went way opposite of what I was originally thinking.

It's not perfect by any means, but it's something I would actually wear if I went to a game.  I know I made a few mistakes when doing this, and of course having the kiddo home sitting on the bathtub watching my every move didn't help much.  So, here ya go...

I drew the black on with my eyeliner, then went over it with a NYX jumbo pencil in Black Bean and went over it with black shadow.  I filled inside with a NYX jumbo pencil in Milk and went over that with yellow.  I used the same eyeliner to line my eyes and slapped on some mascara.  For my lips I just used my EOS lip balm and ran over it with a lip liner.  Covered the rest of my face with foundation and voila. 

Products used:
  • ELF Eyeshadow Primer (the $1 one)
  • NYX Jumbo pencils in Black Bean & Milk
  • ELF Brightening Eyeliner - Black
  • Matte Black Eyeshadow - ELF 100 palette
  • Korpse Kosmetics eyeshadow in Halo
  • Bare Escentuals Big Tease mascara
  • Bare Escentuals foundation in Medium Beige
  • ELF Mineral Lip Liner in peachy
I wish I'd actually been more precise when applying the black and that I'd put the yellow on before the black.  Another thing I'd change is putting the top black line even with my brows and not have so much yellow.  Other than that, it's pretty cool.  My kid said it looked like Batman.
