Let’s just pretend for a while longer that it’s not like a whole month (or more) has passed and I *still* haven’t put up the last NY trip post. Um…Anyhoodles! Makeup! I did it today! You get to see it! Yay!
-Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV-Lotion
-Concrete Minerals Electric Eye Primer (all around eyes)
-Aromaleigh Gothic Lolita Collection eyeshadow in Wonderland (inner corners, under brows (not really a highlight, is it, when it rubs down kind of grey, oh well, I like it))
-Aromaleigh Wonderstruck Collection eyeshadow in Curiouser and Curiouser (lid)
-Aromaleigh Mythos Collection eyeshadow in Asteria (crease to outer vee to lower lashline, sort of going for a halo effect)
-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Midnight Cowboy (lower waterline, to decrease redness, but probably should’ve just gone with a purple liner)
-L’Oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense (upper lashline)
-Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara in Extreme Black (two-ish coats, upper and lower)
-the ubiquitous e.l.f. Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara (brows – just letting them be unwaxed and bushy right now, y’all, I’m going with it)
-Evil Shades Blush in Gossamer
-Evil Shades Deviant Lipstick in Bane
-Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Lollypop-pop (over Bane)
Also? Totally went to uke jam tonight, and my new favorite five-year-old (seriously, she’s adorbs!) actually, unprompted, complimented me on my makeup because it was “sparkly and pretty.” JOY! Made me so, so happy, and feel like a pretty princess.
Bonus: one of my Frankens (I made about seven in my first go). This is a clear top coat with scads and scads of Aromaleigh’s Bette eyeshadow and Aphrodite glitter poured in, and then because it was a smidge too runny, I added a bit of a shimmery white from Milani, but just a bit, and more Bette and Aphrodite. I would say in real life it has kind of a suede finish to it – not truly matte, not truly shimmery. Kind of whole-heartedly love it, can’t wait to see what it looks like with a clear topcoat, and am TOTES going to rip this combo off for a matching eye look soon. Shameless!
