LOTD: Belated Valentine’s Day

15 Feb

Red glitter liner for the win!

I just got a new camera, so the first few pictures are taken in natural light with no editing or even simple exposure corrections that I usually have to bother with no matter what light I take my pictures in. I am ridiculously happy with the thing so far, but I have yet to take closeups. The last pictures were taken in the morning (and by that I mean 6 AM) with my old, crappy camera, so excuse them. They know not how they offend.

The glitter was so lovely in real life, it matched my scarf perfectly and that made me happy šŸ™‚

But look how nice my skin looks! It never looks that way in real life, especially at the end of the day. This camera = god.

Tip for glitter eyeliner: use a sticky base (something that won’t set, like the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils) and gently pat a small amount at a time onto the liner. Use tape to pick up the glitter bits that will inevitably rain down your face. Accept that glitter is messy but beautiful…like children, or puppies.

Products used: (I kept it simple)

– NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean

– Super Nail glitter in Lava Flow

– Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

– Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Shadow Stick in Blackmail

Hope you enjoyed this quick post, I’ve got another zodiac look for you on Monday so keep your eyes peeled (what a frightening expression)!

Update: I lied. Wednesday zodiac, Monday my friend’s winter dance makeup šŸ™‚

    I am always a fan of glitter. Used red glitter yesterday and while it gets a little messy, it’s still fun and worth it šŸ™‚
