2 in 1 | Alien v. Cobalt Smoky

12 Aug

Hey there friends. In order to maximize the amount of makeup I’m getting out here on the blog (considering how much I do, which is…a lot), I’ll be doing a two-in-one kinda deal where you can, if you wish, pick your favorite of two very different looks. Sooo…here we go 🙂DSC08398

Our first contestant is a pretty staple Olive look. I used to do that eyeshadow shape a loooot when I was starting makeup because, I dunno, it’s easy and it flatters ma eyeballz. I evidently was not in the mood for winged eyeliner, a rarity.

Our second contestant is the ugly duckling, for certain. She’s a weird alien-esque runway type look. I was thinking along the lines of layering different colors to achieve something strange and tonal. I’m also really into faking depth that I do not have (my eyelids are very…convex). I ran some concealer through my brows and lashes to lighten them, which looks horrible but also I kind of want that to be my brows forever.

And back to this dude. I need to get better at collaging, amirite?bleach brows 2

Hugely inspired by @makeupbyursula on the ‘stagrams, I added some pink lipgloss with blue sparkles. It’s..interesting, isn’t it? By the way, I totally do not own a ring light, it’s just my lighted mirror. Works just as well, methinks.

Is this too many pictures? Tell me if this is too many pictures.cobalt 3 DSC08380

So which do you prefer? I think mine is pretty obvious considering the number of pictures I shared of it, but ya know, I’m a pretty basic bitch. If you have questions on any products used, I live to serve.

Warm Browns ft. Colour Pop I ♥ This

3 Aug

Hey there friends. Got something a little more normal for you today, compensating for the last thing I suppose.

warm brown smokey

I don’t really gravitate toward the warmer tones most of the time when I’m doing neutrals, so I figured I’d switch it up. Plus it gave me a chance to use that gorgeous center lid shade, I ♥ This by Colourpop (aka my secret lover makeup company, whom I am now eternally addicted to). It’s funny because it’s almost silver and I HATE silver eyeshadow, but I…well, I heart this.

1 Aug

Hey there friends. It’s quite late and after my 8.5 hour shift at work, I’m in a rather quiet mood, so please enjoy the weird colorful pictures in silence. Or, play “Colours” by Young Liars for some nice themed background music.
