NEW Cocktail Makeup Series- 'Long Island Iced Tea'

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!

Yes, i have yet another new makeup series.
Being that it's finally summer time,
I wanted to do a makeup series to reflect that.
And one thing I think of when I think of summer is yummy, bright, fruity, delicious cocktails :)

When I started thinking about some of my favorite drinks,
I realized they're composed of tons of color that could really inspire some cool looks.
SO, that's the basis for my new series.
I'll do one look a week
 (i'll try to do it on the same day every week, but we'll see).

FIRST UP, is my personal favorite go-to cocktail.
I don't drink liquor often (i'm a wino),
but when I do, it's an LIT.
*not my picture*

It's a pretty popular drink,
but in case you don't know what it is...

- 1/2 oz of tequila, rum, triple sec, gin, vodka
- 1 oz sour mix
- cola
- lemon garnish

So, based off the colors,
here's the look I created:

I really liked this.
It's much more subdued than the other looks i've created so far in this series,
which you have yet to see,
but I still like it. Definitely a wearable look for anyone.

I used:
Too Faced's Shadow Insurance
UD's 'Bust' & 'Nevermind'- crease
UD's 'Skimp'- brow bone
UD's 'Half Baked', Lime Crime's 'Circus Girl', SYN Cosmetics' 'Trace' & 'Down'- lid
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes mascara
Covergirl Line Exact mascara

What do you guys think about this look?
ALSO, if you have any suggestions or requests for a cocktail I can create a look for,
let me know! :)
