Urban Taupe

18 Feb

Hey there friends. I finally broke the spell of boring neutral makeup and wore Urban from my UD Electric Palette to school.

*scattered lukewarm applause*

Ok, yes, the blending is a little suspect. It was early, gimme a break :) Still, I’m a firm believer that bright colors can be toned down dramatically when combined with light golds, taupes, and browny-type dealiedoos.

Contrast

Hey there friends. Got another colorful look for you again. If you’re bored to death of weird things you can’t wear grocery shopping, I invite you to keep scrolling (somewhere else, tehe:)).

I had so much fun with this look. It’s not the neatest and it definitely wouldn’t wear for long periods of time (the red in my lashes fell allll over my face within an hour), but damnit it was fun. I got the color scheme from a friend (thanks, friend).

Are these parentheses bothering you, Elizabeth?

Here’s the first look with white lashes..

Step one: Apply NYX Milk all over lashes. Step two: Cry because weird and beautiful.

Step three: Take 10,000 photos of eyeball. Become rampant narcissist. Live alone with only reflection for company.

All I needed for the red lashes was a bit of Sugarpill’s Love+ and voila! I’m Christmas. Or something.

Soft Pink Valentine’s Day Makeup

11 Feb

Emphasis on soft.

Hey there friends. Time for my favorite day of all time *sarcasm sarcasm sarcasm*. But really, it’s my birthday on Friday. I’ll FINUHLLY be a real live adult human.

When I saw the pink shades in my new e.l.f. Prism eyeshadows, I knew I had to do a Valentine’s look. When else is it acceptable to wear pink eyeshadow, hmm?? NEVER.valentines 4

I found this angsty photo of my face and took the opportunity to doctor it up with a Val Day filter. Hmm..interesting.

valentines 3

Something about the lighting made the inner corner eyeshadow come out a bit orange…rest assured, it’s PINK. Idk why cameras gotta be dis way.

valentines 2

So, not that anyone was curious, but I’ll be spending the 14th at work. Guess my love will have to wait outside the doors of Target holding a boombox over his head, except maybe don’t do that, because my uniform is not attractive in the least and I’d rather not be seen.

Has anyone ever tried the boombox thing? Does it work? I think it’d work on me.

Products used:

♦ e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow in Sunset

♦ Lorac Unzipped Palette

♦ Jane Cosmetics Water-Proof Liquid Eye Liner in Black (still stings, but such is the cross I bear for matte black liner that doesn’t smeary smear everywhere)

♦ Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara

Thoughts? Love to hear ‘em :)
