Tiger’s Eye

Press SampleAffiliate Links

I went to the zoo with my sister and our kids last week and had a great time.  There is a newer exhibit in the Jacksonville Zoo called “Land of the Tiger” and I am obsessed with it.  I have been in love with tigers ever since I can remember.  When I lived in Mississippi, the school I attended was very small.  Small enough that it was K-12 all in the same building.  Eventually they built an elementary school across the street but I went to school in the same building for 12 years.  Our mascot was actually a tiger.  I think seeing tons of pictures of this beautiful creature while in those walls really left a lasting impression on me.

My son snapped this picture with a cell phone while we were there.  Maybe I should get him to start taking my makeup look pictures because he did a fabulous job!  I took dozens of photos of this tiger and NEVER got one this good.   haha  I was so inspired by their beauty that I was dying to do an inspired look with some new Summer goodies I have.

Gah… such a beautiful animal.  Anyway.  I used colors that I found similar.  Don’t get me wrong… I am not doing crazy tiger stripes.  I am making a seriously wearable Tiger inspired makeup look.

A Tiger’s eye is my favorite.  I love that it is completely lined in black and even has a flick.  Hence the term “cat-eye”!  :)  I tried to stick with shades that were natural in the coloring of a Tiger.

      Nidia, we were inches away from the tiger with a thick slab of glass in between. ALL of my photos kept picking up a glare and he got a PERFECTLY clear picture. And thank you.
