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.

I thought I’d keep it simple for today :) Took my boyfriend and his brother drunk mini-golfing (I’m allergic to alcohol, so I’m always DD!). Kind of fun?

What does everyone have planned for the weekend? I’m moving!  Incredibly exciting, right?  So not.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on inner half of lid, Charcoal Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Satin Taupe eyeshadow on outer crease, Goldmine eyeshadow lightly on outer lid/middle of lid, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Urban Decay Stash 24/7 liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Margin blush with Dior Amber Diamond SkinShimmer on cheeks. I wore Fuschia Fix tinted lip conditioner with Take A Hint tendertone (LE) on lips.

Remember how yesterday I said I re-did my makeup because I wasn’t satisfied with the look? This is what I did instead–just something easy and simple (which is why the lashes are dusty and clumpy–apologies!).

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) inner lid, Nylon eyeshadow on middle of lid, Bronze eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on brow and above crease, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Lilicent blushcreme with Sunbasque blush on cheeks. I wore Tiger Tiger lipstick (LE) with Supreme lipglass (LE) and Real Desire (LE) lipglass on my lips.
