FOTD and NOTD: Candy Apple Fishnets


Ahh, Tuesday. I hate Mondays but Tuesday has a little bit of optimism for the coming weekend, no?  Still too long away, you say?  At long last I had an extra couple of minutes to get ready this morning and I rimmed my eyes with black liner and slicked on a red pout.  I haven't worn a real look in ages (nearly bare-faced most days recently, can you believe it?) so I guess I just gravitated toward the classics.
Sorry, I'm not actually green. Nor do I have dark circles (le sigh).  Fluorescent lighting really sucks.  Pictures taken four hours after I put the makeup on originally!

Breakdown: H20+ Sea Results Eye Mender Eye Cream, Jack Black Mint lip balm, La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo, Stila Sheer Tinted Moisturizer in Medium, L'oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base, L'oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation in 518 Natural Buff applied with Real Techniques stippling brush (first time I used the two together... it's like they're made for each other! I got weightless, perfect application with no streakiness and barely used any product at all... this is HG material, people!), Illamasqua Cream Blush in Rude, Physicians Formula Happy Booster blush in Natural, MAC Mineralize Charged Water (as setting spray), Maybelline Unstoppable mechanical eye pencil, no mascara, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Candy Apple

I've also not had anything on my nails for over a week.  I thought I'd pop on a set of Sally Hansen nail polish strips at long last; they make my nails stronger so they can grow out a bit, which is nice.

  3. I'm all over that lip color! I love lip color. I'm wearing Smashbox - legendary... It looks BRIGHT red but it goes on hot pink on my lips :)

  5. Tuesdays are by far the worst day of the week in my opinion!

    I know what you mean about fluorescent lighting, I hate it too, it's not flattering at all.

    The nail strips look cool, I think they're a pain to apply though. Do you have to cut the Sally Hansen ones to size?

  6. Hello Amelia :( I'm sorry it's Tuesday for you, then, but at least it's almost over :) You don't have to cut the Sally Hansen strips to size - they come in 8 sizes so you're likely to find something in the pack that matches closely enough. You can see the thumb I chose was slightly too small if you look for it, but I doubt most people notice.
