Bright Makeup: Fuchsia & Purple

I mentioned last look that the next one would definitely have some color, and I'd say this one certainly does!

To compensate for the site being down intermittently, here's a Rose Romance look I did yesterday. I think it's the first time I've worn eyeshadow in two weeks ore more! I just always run out of time and end up going with a minimal to no makeup face these days. I'm working on it, though!

Look – Smokey Eyes with Gray and Silver

It's been SO long since I've done the "traditional" smokey eye, so I had the urge to try it out again :) I'm spending my weekend cramming/studying for my Stats and Managerial Accounting finals on Monday (yay, back-to-back finals, so awesome!). I'm meeting up with some study buddies for Stats in...
