Macro makeup shots are not kind! I swear, I have my nose to the mirror, and the liner looks IMMACULATE! it’s totally even, straight, not a jagged bit in sight… but then when I’m in Photoshop to crop the photos, what do I see? Liner that’s kind of uneven! GRR.  Tried going for a more dramatic and noticeable crease today! :)  Overall, I liked the subtly of the lid color with the bolder crease and lash line colors!

It’s almost Friday!  I hope you have some fun Friday/weekend plans coming up!  My grandma is coming into town on Saturday, but then I’ll be spending my Sunday researching and writing an appellate brief for summer school (so fun! totally!).  What’s on your agenda for the weekend? (Can you tell that I really want it to be here already?)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Nylon eyeshadow on inner lid, Juxt eyeshadow on middle of lid, A Bluer Blue eyeshadow (LE) in crease and outer lid, Juxt eyeshadow above crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow bone, Aqualine liquidlast liner on upper lash line, A Bluer Blue eyeshadow (LE) over Aqualine liquidlast liner, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Foolish Me blush with Dior SkinShimmer in Amber Diamond on cheeks to highlight. I wore Strawbaby lipstick (LE) with Moonbathe lipglass (LE) on my lips.

A Bluer Blue = Freshwater + Shimmermoss (also a dupe for Big T); Femme-fi = Shroom; Feline = Graphblack; Strawbaby = Skew; Moonbathe = Nymphette
