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.

An easy neutral look, mostly because I felt like a bold lip today :) Plus, I’m probably having lunch with the Mama, and she appreciates a good natural kind of look.

By the way, can I just say how much I love discovering new lip combinations? Seriously. If only it was my job in life!

I used Cash Flow paint pot (LE) on lid, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on inner lid, Nylon eyeshadow on middle of lid, Bronze eyeshadow on outer lid and above outer crease, Woodwinked eyeshadow on outer crease, Evening Aura eyeshadow (LE) above inner crease, Ricepaper eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Molten Sol liquidlast liner (LE) on upper lash line, Feline kohl power (LE) on lower lash line, Femme-fi eyeshadow (LE) on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I had Lillicent blushcreme stippled on cheeks with Sunbasque blush overlaid and Dior SkinShimmer in Amber Diamond to highlight. I wore Sci Fi Delity lipstick (LE) with Pink Grapefruit lipglass (LE) and Red Romp lipglass (LE).

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.

A softer Neo Sci Fi themed look :)  I didn’t pick up Time & Space/Magnetic Fields, but I used Bronze & Smut as substitutes instead.  Replace at will!

This is part of a tutorial that is “coming soon,” about how to go from daytime look to darker daytime look to subtle evening look to dramatic evening look. Yesterday, I posted the first version of the look – incredibly neutral, all-matte eyeshadow – and here is the same look kicked up a notch for those who need a little more step in an everyday look. The difference? Simply darkened the crease with Brun eyeshadow!

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow on inner lid, Bisque eyeshadow on middle of lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Brun eyeshadow in outer crease, Blanc Type eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, Brun eyeshadow on brows, and Plushblack mascara on lashes. I wore True Romantic blush on cheeks with Tenderdusk beauty powder to highlight. I had Sweetie lipstick with Dreamy lipglass on my lips.

This is part of a tutorial that is “coming soon,” about how to go from daytime look to darker daytime look to subtle evening look to dramatic evening look. This is the ultimate daytime look in terms of neutrality and simplicity. I’m a little disappointed that the full face shot didn’t turn out very true-to-life, because I actually loved how this came out!

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow on inner lid, Bisque eyeshadow on middle of lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Blanc Type eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, Brun eyeshadow on brows, and Plushblack mascara on lashes.
