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!

EOTD 9/7/10
- I call this au naturale.
- For the record, I don’t wear makeup everyday.  I try to take pictures of my face everyday (I’ve always wanted to do that 365 mashup of your face… and you can see how you’v changed… ahhh) Sometimes I like to put some lipgloss/lipstick or even the occasional blush to bring some color to my face.  Other days… I just leave the house making sure I’ve moisturized and spf’d.
- Anyway, I don’t ever see a point of posting a EOTD… with just my bare eye… so I call this au naturale because this is the barest my eye will ever be and still have it qualify as an EOTD :D
- Like I said before, I’m really bad at neutral looks… and simple stuff.  For me, color is simple and pulling a ‘natural’ is hard.  When I don’t go all out… my face looks weird… like I skipped steps or left things undone (strange?… or not?) Also I feel like just liner/mascara still makes my eyes look quite small… or.. makes them even smaller!
- I know people say that black eyeliner makes your eyes smaller (and I agree!) but I think when you have color eyeshadow all around your eyes, the black eyeliner helps to define the look as a whole and create focus.
- Anyway for this particular look I did my usual TooFaced Shadow Insurance primer, then used Loreal HIP cream shadow paint in Lofty (its my goto skin color base, when I need it) and lined my lower lashline with a UD 24/7 purple liner.  For my lid, I smudged some sort of dark color (either brown or black…).  Because I have hooded eyes, you can’t see how much I applied (quite a bit if I closed my eyes).  I applied just enough so that the color will only peek out when my eye is open —- this helps to open up the eye by making my lashes look fuller.
