In this next picture I tried to show you how high I took the liner. It's very thick. When I was doing it, it felt like I was basically coloring my eyelid with the liner haha. I just know for my eye shape, I don't like the way very thin liner looks with no shadow.
Oooh natural light!
Man, my hair looks way blonder outside!
I am wearing a little bit of eyeshadow, I have on Inglot colors 395 P (for the highlight and on the lid, focusing on the inner corner) and 363 M which is just a brown color (the same one I use on my brows) but I dipped in it sooo lightly because you definitely can get more color than you want VERY easily with Inglot shadows.
Whoa, I totally almost forgot to say what the liner is! It's a Stila smudge pot in the color "Violet" which is a BEAUTIFUL cool toned purple with sparkles. However, it's kind of dry so it didn't apply very evenly so I went over the liner with Inglot 388 M ("blurple" as Dani calls it haha, which is a great description of the color).
And on my lips I have MAC "Pink Friday" lipstick with NYX megashine lipgloss on top.
And then just something else... you know how the other day I did a Pam Anderson inspired look and said how I wished that people could just appreciate the beauty in one another and not point out their flaws?? I was pretty disappointed when the next day I saw the newest Makeup Geek video about how to avoid getting a cakey face and the preview picture is a bad picture of Pam. I watched the video (which is full of great information) and in the middle, it does a scream and flashes to a picture of Katy Perry with cakey foundation too.
I feel that MakeupGeek is such a positive website and has pretty much come across as judgement free that this video threw me off a little. I know that the video was meant to help, and it does, but it made me feel like, "what do they say when they look at my pictures?" do they laugh and scream? Or is it just celebrities that they save that for because they pay people who should know better?? I just felt that the video would have been just as effective and informative without those pictures, it put some negativity where it wasn't necessary.
I hope you guys all had a great Memorial Day weekend and hopefully you got to spend some time with your family! Unfortunately my hubby had to work his normal schedule (which includes Sunday and today) so we didn't get a long weekend and my whole family lives in New York (and they all got together... I'm so jealous!!!)! I mean, look how cute my little niece is with my mom and dad
Someone really should warn you how much you're going to love your sister's child! I had no idea I'd feel as attached to her as I do! She's so cute!
And I just want to say thank you to anyone who has served our country and those who have sacrificed their lives so that we can be free!!! Happy Memorial Day!!!
