I love makeup. This is for me to share my EOTDs, NOTDs, rare FOTDs and anything else beauty/cosmetic-related that I think other people would find interesting :)

Feel free to ask questions and make comments, I would love to hear from you!

Fotd I did just this past weekend. I thought it came out so awesomely. I was aiming for a neutral look but still wanted it to pop and be noticed. I added Sugarpill’s Love+ in the crease, which is something I usually reserve for dramatic looks but it blended seamlessly in with the other neutral colors! Used Urban Decay’s Naked palette for the rest of the look.  :) I believe the lid color is Midnight Cowboy? Which is beautiful except for the glitter fallout argh. 

Lips I used Revlon balm stain in lollipop which I love. They are awesome to use if you want an easy application and need it to stay on forever :D

Hope you enjoyed!

Fotd from a couple of weeks ago. The lighting was horrible so the color is really off :(. Basically did my signature look with Sugarpill’s Love + in the crease and a mix of purples on the lid and lower lashline. Obviously I used Nyx’s Milk to highlight my inner corners and used my favorite Giorgio Armani’s liquid lipstick. It’s the perfect long lasting blue red. Love it tons :D

Fotd I did for my bday. I really enjoyed it. 

Some products used:
Makeupgeek eyeshadow in Neptune (lovely matte blue)
Inglot shimmery light blue in inner corners
Urban Decay matte brown in crease (from Naked palette)
Inglot shimmery navy blue in outer corner 
Inglot true blue in lower lash line 

Also used a Nars blush that I can’t recall the name of :/ and a combo of Revlon’s lipstick in pink truffle and lilac 

Overall I really enjoyed it and hope you did too :)

Have a great day!

Sorry for the hiatus. My life has been all over the place in the past dew months. It is beginning to stabilize to say the least. 

Anyway! FOTD I did the other day. I liked it :). Used some neutral browns in my Urban Decay Naked palette to help define my nonexistent crease. Used the Ben Nye Lumiere palette —- shadow in Cosmic Violet as the main lid color. Used MakeupGeek’s Purple Rain in the outer v area. Darkened it with UD Darkhorse?

I used some other stuff but I haven’t been writing down what I’ve been using anymore because I lost the notebook that I used to write it in :(

For my lips I used Revlon lipstick in Lilac —- which is one of my few light colored lipsticks. I like how you can dab it for an almost MLBB look or you can apply it a little bit heavier for a nice light pink (which is how I wore it today)

Hope you enjoyed, until next time!

Hmmm this is a look I did a while back. Yes it is similar to my go to purple smoky look but I used tape to create a defined edge. I could have sworn I posted this… But I can’t find it so I guess I’m posting it again. Apologies for the lame post since I am in the process of settling into a new place and don’t have my list of products used :(

All in all I think the defined edge look isn’t for me. I don’t think it’s the most flattering

Cool :)

My daily FOTD on a normal work weekday — today showcasing the super popular this spring Maybelline color sensational vivid in Vivid Rose (quite a mouthful!)

So yes, they are completely worth the hype. I’ve known about these for months and have always been planning to buy them. Since I have plenty of lippies to cycle through I wasn’t in a huge hurry. I also already knew that I would like them. 

Note that this lip swatch is done LIGHTLY. So jackpot on pigmentation! They wear pretty well, not long wearing as in drying/ hard to remove. As others have said, they have a translucency but the pigmentation makes it not noticeable. One of the issues I had with them are that they have a gross plasticky scent — NOT a fan. Thank goodness it fades quickly but it still grosses me out. 

Anyway! This is usually what I wear to work everyday. I do my brows, put on a little blush, sometimes contour and a nice bright lip color. Sometimes I’ll dust powder but rarely will I put I foundation ( too heavy for everyday wear). 

Hope you enjoyed!

FOTD - 3/20/13 

Standard monolid neutral look using eyeshadows from Urban Decay’s Naked Palette

Before the Naked palette, I wasn’t really a fan of neutral colors and thought they were boring. But it converted me and I now love warm browns as much as I do a royal purples :)

Products used:
UD Buck in crease and blended up
UD Sidecar on lid and brought into inner corners
UD Darkhorse in outer v
UD Creep along the outer upper lash line
UD Smog on the lower lash line

I think Sidecar would be a much better color if it didn’t have glitter in it. To me eyeshadows with glitter mean fallout and that’s totally what happened. 

I didn’t use a brighter inner corner highlight or put Nyx’s Milk underneath because I wanted more of a  no-makeup makeup look. Now, I just want to say that I can’t quite achieve that perfect no-makeup makeup look if I choose to use eyeshadow (still working on it!) because of my monolids.  

Anyway hope you enjoyed :)
