Hey guys! First of all, I would like to congratulate you for making it through Monday. It may not seem like that much of an accomplishment to some, but dude, good job.
This morning I woke up actually looking forward to doing my makeup so I thought I’d share it with you! Plus I’m sure that seeing my
mug face will really brighten your day and give you strength to carry on through the rest of the week.
I caved a while back and actually purchased two Lime Crime eyeshadow palettes. I can’t decide how I feel about that honestly. I’ve avoided the brand for multitudes of reasons but I really like the shades in the Venus 2 palette. It’s not really everything I’ve hoped and dreamed it would be but it’s a cool little palette. All that being said, I actually only used one shade from the palette today. I also have been missing the Wear All The Lipstick! project so I thought I might try picking it up again (I make no promises though, committing to things is hard and not very rock and roll. And above all else we know I’m totally rock and roll.)
I like how this turned out even if it is my normal boring brown smoky eye.
Base: I used Makeup Forever’s single eyeshadow in Vanilla
Transition: MAC Uninterrupted
Lid: Lime Crime Mud
Lower lash line: Mud blended out with Uninterrupted
Waterline and tight-line: Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero
Mascara: Lancome Grandiose
Concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Peach
For lipstick I used Covergirl LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in 270 – Cocoa Twist (why is it necessary to have a product name that takes up an entire line of text? No seriously, I need to know.)
As far as how things wore, the eyeshadow does transfer onto my crease pretty badly but that’s not necessarily unusual for me. Everything looked moderately similar at the end of the day so that was a plus!
I actually had fun doing my makeup today, maybe I’ll be inspired to wear makeup again tomorrow! I’ve been on a fairly makeup free kick recently so it was nice to play around a bit.
Did you try anything new with your makeup today? Do you have a go to favorite makeup look? Do you own any controversial makeup? Do you think we could make some sort of petition to outlaw product names that exceed a certain word count?
- I survived hurricane Irma! I may actually post some photos of some of the piles of debris in my yard. I’m still tired from all the clean up and that was a week ago.
- I just finished reading “The Whole Town’s Talking” by Fannie Flagg and I really enjoyed it, it was light, it was mostly happy, there were some great little nuggets of wisdom and I would recommend it if that’s your jam.
- I just started watching season 12 of Supernatural and I’m really digging it so far. I wasn’t a huge fan of season 11 so it’s nice to feel like the show is getting back to itself so to speak.
- Is it possible to have less than zero amount of motivation for working out? I paid a bunch of money to get a work out program in the hopes that it would motivate me but it may have backfired. I feel even less motivated than before.
