Moxie FOTD: Rihanna-esque Clean Neutrals With a Kick!

I love me some 
Ri-Ri! She's got some drool-worthy style and her makeup is always flawless. Most of the time she's rockin' a cleanly blended look, fairly simple, a dash of color here and there, topped with her signature cat-eye liner and faux lashes. 

Don't get me wrong, I love when she sports a bright or dark/edgy smoky eye, but let's be real, you'll look pretty odd meeting up your Boo for a walk in the park looking like you stepped out of her S&M vid! With that in mind, today I dolled up in some natural shades, added some spice with a bit of bright yellow, and was on my way...

What I Used:
-Base MAC Painterly Paint Pot (from lid to brow)
-Brows MAC Dipdown Fluidline (for definition) & Swiss Chocolate eyeshadow (for a more reddish tone)
-Rock & Republic eyeshadow in Ambition swished, NOT packed from the inner crease to the brow bone
-Crease MAC Tete-A-Tint eyeshadow
-MAC Canary Yellow eyeshadow packed on the inner third of the eye
-Upper Liner MAC Boot Black liquid liner
-Lower Liner Rock & Republic eyeshadow in Ambition on the inner half, MAC Knight Divine on the outer half
-Lashes Maybelline One by One Waterproof Mascara & MAC faux lashes in style #2
-MAC Face & Body Foundation, set with Invisible Set Loose Powder
-MAC Well Dressed Blush
-ELF Glossy Gloss in Berry Blush

Here's two of the many pics of the red-headed beauty flaunting natural yet amped up looks:

Remember neutral doesn't always have to be boring!
