Happy Hump Day everyone!! Heyyy, February is pretty much over – doesn’t that make you feel like Spring is REALLY on it’s way? Even though it doesn’t officially start for another three weeks or so, I always feel like March marks the end of Winter and the beginning of good (re: warm) things
For the past week, since Lent began, I have been steadfastly putting in an effort to take FOTD shots of my makeup looks every day, but unfortunately for all of us – I have been failing spectacularly. I just can’t seem to get it right, and it’s frustrating me to no end. However, fortunately for everyone, I don’t give up easy, and I am going to keep on trying until I am successful! Embarrassingly, here are some of the shots I’ve taken over the past week:
MUFE Aqua Liner #14 with the purple shade of NARS Habarnera in the crease and along the lower lash line. I swear in person the shadow was actually noticeable, more than just the hint of shimmer showing here!
I snuck this photo at work while in fear of someone finding me taking pictures of myself lol – I’m wearing Urban Decay’s Bordello eyeshadow (from the BoSIII palette), with UD’s Smog in the crease, theBalm Down Boy blush, and MUFE Lab Shine S4 again.
Tonight, I managed to get a couple shots I was fairly happy with, though I still wish I could get close-ups of eye makeup so that you can see what I’ve done. But – beggers can’t be chosers, I guess! Below, I’m not wearing too much – just a touch of the pale shade of Hourglass’ Exhibition shadow duo on the lid, UD’s Crash liner, Benefit’s Bella Bamba on cheeks, and the star of the look – Chanel’s Rouge Allure Laque in Empire.My goal with all of these FOTD shots are to showcase the products that I haven’t been giving enough love to, and figuring out how to make them work on a regular basis. Chanel’s Empire perplexed me from the start – it was such a gorgeous shade, but I just didn’t see it working on my skintone. However, now that I’m easing into wearing pretty Spring hues, I find this lippie works PERFECTLY. It’s just not a Fall/Winter shade on me, AT ALL. Now that I’ve figured that out, I’m gonna have some serious fun with this color!! It’s absolutely perfect for pretty much any Spring look I’ll be wearing.
What makes me
cringe chuckle when I go back through these pictures, is that my makeup looks almost identical in each – this is one of the frustrating parts, because each look was different, honest! ~sigh~ Anyway, as I said, I’m going to continue to press on, and *one day* I’ll get it. At the very least, I’m having a great time wearing different products every day and giving all the neglected items I own a little attention. Talk about shopping your own stash!
Have you rediscovered a product that you weren’t sure about, only to find that you’ve changed your mind and have now fallen in love?
