A no-makeup-at-all day today, quite rare. All my allergies are back in full force, so I need to lay off /everything/ minus moisturizer. *Grumble*
With a bit of luck it’ll only last a few days.

I’m SO glad you asked this question today, how weird! Because I am actually really loving my look today, conceited as that sounds. I’m working a shimmery green look today with some Fyrinnae colors, Ulta e/s in Mint, and Kelly Green pigment. I wanted to take some pics so I could post my first look ever (!!) in the forum, but the blasted camera died after one pic!!! I may post it anyway, just because I’m so excited about it ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, I hope you do post it. I was actually playing around with different colors last night because I wanted to do a mint look, too. Will you please post and link to where on the forum? I don’t frequent the forum here, so I’ll forget to check back. Thanks!

(I’m Back!)

Since I was wearing an outfit that had a lot of yellow and blue, I did kind of a tropical eye shadow look today. It was a fan style across my eyelid. Starting from the outside corner and working in, it went blue, green, yellow.

I got a lot of compliments. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m wearing…
Almay foundation in “Naked”
Maybelline blush from the dollar store (total bargain!)
Clinique high definition lashes mascara
L’Oreal pencil liner in kohl

Today I am wearing:

I wasn’t 100% thrilled with my look today. :S Anybody know what is a good base to do Expensive Pink with? Bare study didn’t do it justice.

Perky might be a nice base, since it’s more coral-y… Or Fresco Rose would make it more pinkish. I’d imagine the best one would be Reubenesque since it has some gold.

it was a way tired, way rushed day for me today! I was up at 7 and going until 1am! I’m ready to pass out.

So, oversleeping playing it’s part (God, when did getting up at 7 become oversleeping?!), I rushed my face today and had on:

Proactiv Oil Free Moisturizer
Prep+Prime skin
Face and Body foundation in N3
bare slimshine
zoom lash
fascinating eye kohl on my waterline

I have a pretty good natural flush, especially with face and body foundation not covering up everything like SFF or the Studio Stick foundation I’ve been using lately, so I skipped blush in favor of a couple more minutes to do my hair!

Of course, after going to class all morning I went straight to work (at starbucks) and had to change there. Obviously no time to freshen up my makeup, so of COURSE my customer crush/”Starbucks husband” comes in and we have the longest conversation we’ve ever had. The whole time I was wishing I’d had time to touch up!

i wore the lightest application make-up ive ever worn in public today because i’m in college now.. so i’m trying to cut down on make-up time to have more time to study

carbon, go (starflash umm.. amazing!), nylon
full and soft in very black
technakohl in graphblack
MAC mineralize loose foundation (messy unfortunately)

TOday I’m wearing my standard “i’m a banker” look..

BB Champagne & Espresso e/s

L’Oreal liquid eyeliner (forgot name)

Body Shop clear brow gel
BB Pot Rouge in Velvet Plum (yummy color!)

… wow it seems so much less when i put it on..
