EOTD: Dreaming of the Caribbean

Hi girls!  It's been gray and cold, of course, so I've been thinking more often about planning a holiday away to somewhere warm and sunny.  Saturdays are perfect for playing with colors out of your comfort zone, so I took my eye makeup to the Caribbean with NYX's Caribbean Collection:






I filled my brows with a Jordana taupe pencil, lined my waterline with a Smashbox black eyeliner, and lined my upper lashline with Almay liquid eyeliner.  Then, I used Duo lash glue to apply Revlon Beyond Natural Lashes in 91181 Defining and hid the band with NYX Crystal Glitter liner in Crystal Onyx.  I finished off the colorful shadows with NYX Crystal Glitter liner in Crystal Hip along my lower lashline.  My mascara is L'oreal Carbon Black Telescopic Explosion.  Not pictured: TFSI under the shadows and Wet n Wild Brulee to highlight the browbone.

I hope you guys don't hate these poorly lit photos! Even outdoors the lighting has been simply horrid lately, almost to the point of me wanting to suspend posting until we get the odd sunny day (or perhaps even until next summer).  Have you guys been having trouble with lighting this Fall/Winter?

  6. @Nicola, haha thanks! I had to nix a lot of the pictures because they looked in need of a wax...

  7. @Cheeky Chic, NYX is almost as nice as Sleek but I feel like their colors are more basic/lack depth and interest, and slightly more sheer than Sleek. Close, though!
    @katherine, Riya, Chikology, M, <3 thanks so much guys :)
