It’s fun to go back in time and look at how you’ve improved. One thing I really like about looking at looks I did a long time ago is to see what color combinations I used. Sometimes I still find some that I like! :) Case in point, even though my style has evolved from the presentation in this look, I am digging the this shade of green with the blue — and I like the blue on the waterline. Why didn’t I note what liner I used? Boo @ me. This look is from January 2006, just to give y’all a frame of reference. It’s over three years later, so hey — like I always tell people, practice, practice, practice!

Used: Golden Olive pigment, Lucky Green e/s in inner lid, Swimming e/s in middle of lid, Humid e/s on outer lid, Velvet Moss e/s on outer lid, Deep Truth e/s in crease, Juxt e/s from crease to brow, and Say Yeah! e/s on brow.

I think I’m actually going to be late to school because I’m posting this, LOL! I have about… eight minutes to shower and get ready before I need to be out the door. Seriously, do you ever just get caught up doing internet-related things, whether it be browsing or writing someone an email? I always fall prey to it! Ask my boyfriend – he has to drag me away from Temptalia sometimes or else nothing in my life would get done! (Honestly, it’s not quite THAT bad!) Anyway, I did this look on Saturday, figuring I’d give Soft Ochre paint pot a shot (despite the huge paint pot following, I am not among it), and I rather liked how it ended up coming together. Happy hump day – hope you all are having a fab week! I hate Wednesdays, mostly because it’s my longest day of school (9am-4pm), and STARBUCKS! is the only thing that can get me through these kinds of days.  *edited to add* Totally wasn’t late to school.  In fact, five minutes early!

I used Soft Ochre paint pot on lid, Nanogold eyeshadow on inner lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on middle of lid, Velvet Moss eyeshadow on outer lid, Femme Noir eyeshadow on outer crease, Nanogold eyeshadow above crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow, and Feline kohl power on lower lash line. I wore Margin blush with Light Flush mineralize skinfinish to highlight on my cheeks. I had Tiger Tiger lipstick with Vital Spark lipglass and Tres Cher lipglass on my lips.
