I had my first round of chemo last Monday, which while it wasn't as bad as I thought it may be, it wasn't fun. I was ok on Monday and Tuesday (a little nauseous but whatev), but on Wednesday the medicine kicked in and I wasn't feeling well at all. And a terrible side effect of the anti nausea medicine that I didn't know about is that it can make your vision fuzzy! I woke up on Thursday morning and couldn't see things that I normally could! I swear I had the worst makeup application that day, I couldn't see what I was doing! But I made it through and have another round this upcoming Monday but at least now I at least kind of know what to expect, I'm not sure if the side effects will change with time or get worse or better but I guess we'll see.
Anyways, I have a look for you today. I've been getting more and more Makeup Geek eyeshadows and when I was picking out the ones I wanted I knew I wanted one called "Razzleberry" just because it looks fun. Well I got it and it's just been sitting there. So I finally used it. When you use this color, you will COMPLETELY understand why it's called Razzleberry haha. So here's the look I did (sorry I don't have better pictures, I've not been very photogenic lately...).
What I used:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
NYX JEP "Milk"
Makeup Geek shadow "Duchess" (purple) on lid and up above crease and under eye
Makeup Geek shadow "Razzleberry" (pink) blended into Duchess and up from there
Makeup Geek "Vanilla Bean" as highlight
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara
I was too lazy to put anything on my lips so that's just my lip color
Razzleberry is definitely a fun color. There's a bit of glitter in it but that brushed off when I blended it. It's definitely one of the more pigmented colors I've gotten from MUG (don't get Fuji, it's a letdown).
So I'm sorry I don't have more looks or better, more interesting looks for you right now. I've definitely been trying to get better, I just haven't had as much patience as I usually do when I do my makeup.
Also, I don't know if you noticed the link for Relay for Life in the top left hand corner of my blog but I have a friend who will be walking in an event to support the American Cancer Society and she's walking in honor of me and also her uncle. If you click on the link you can see what the money goes to, it's really a great program. My Cancer Center offers so many excellent programs and classes for cancer patients and their family members and I know that the Relay for Life helps support those programs. If you feel it in your heart to donate to that, we'd all be so grateful. If not, I totally understand.
I hope you guys are having a great week! I'll definitely be posting another look before Monday! Thank you always for your thoughts and prayers. They mean so much to me! Even if I don't personally respond (I've barely gotten on the computer this past week and a half), just know that I've seen what you've said and I appreciate it so much! Thank you guys for hanging in there with me!
