MAKEUP OF THE DAY: 01/05/14


Today's makeup look drew inspiration from the earrings that I'm wearing in the photo above and below this writing. My mom got me them for Christmas and they are so incredibly chic I just can't get over it. I almost feel like I'm not worthy of wearing them.. I LOVE them. I had intended on the eyeshadow on this look being a bit more noticeable in photos but hey, what can you do? Urban Decay's 'Provocateur' is a really interesting shade and wears oddly so it's very difficult to pick up on camera. It's almost a bit gritty but never appears so. It's weird.

On another note, I've been really loving my eyebrows lately. I've only started loving them even more now that I'm using Gimme Brow. I am very proud of them! What I'm not proud of is my skin… uggghhhh I don't know what's going on with my skin but I cannot seem to get a handle on it. It doesn't help that I'm physically incapable of applying concealer properly because I don't end up concealing ANYTHING. I'm also paper white and no face products come in my skin tone which is why I had to use my Smashbox Photo Ready BB Cream because it makes me tanner but even then I couldn't conceal for the life of me… okay my blabbering is over. But yeah. I photoshopped the blemishes out in these photos but in the video below you'll be able to see it :(


Star of the show is my Maybelline ColorSensational Vivids lipstick in 'Vivid Rose'. I had originally put on my NARS Sheer lipstick in 'Dolce Vita' (it's in the video) but I looked so boring so I had to throw this guy on.
