I love trying out new color combinations, and lately, I’ve been a little stumped when I’ve gone to the “drawing board” aka the mirror/my face. I thought I might try thinking up some combinations in advance so that I’m not staring at myself in the mirror for ten minutes like an idiot, LOL! I thought I’d share four I managed to come up with :)

Check out three more!

    These are beautiful color combos. I definitely feel like i go through the same thing. Wanting to try something new but end up doing an oldie but goodie look. Sometimes i feel like i should be picking out my makeup the night before like i do my clothes. Is that pathetic or what?!?! :) HA!

    Would love to see you do a FOTD with these color combos!!

      I actually used to ALWAYS pick out my makeup the night before. I would spend up to an hour in my room, applying different colour combos to the back of my hand until I found one that I really liked haha. I still do that when I take the time to prepare my makeup beforehand.

      Anyways, I love the third one. Not too sure about the second combo, I guess I would have to see it on the eyes to see if it looks good! Something about it just looks off to me, not sure why. This all makes me want to go to Sephora and stock up on MUFE, but I have no money :(

    • I’m so glad I’m not alone! :)

      Haha! Sometimes I think about it, but only if I’m going somewhere!

  9. hi

    Whenever I get stuck, I randomly pick two or three eyeshadows and a colored liner with my eyes closed. That REALLY makes for some crazy new ideas :D My fave was MAC Shroom, Da Bling, and Sable with Fly-By-Blu pearlglide liner :D

    This is kind of what I was talking about in the comment to win the MES–about what we’d like to see more of on the site. I find this very helpful!

    I love the first and the last. I don’t usually like pink on eyes, though, so instead I’d add a lipcolor close to that beautiful shocking pink.
