FOTD: Feeling More Like Myself


COLOR! Thank goodness it's Friday because that's casual day in these parts and I feel more comfortable trying to pull off a watercolor-rainbowie eye... and I realized that I also feel more like this is the REAL me, not just "professional, hard-working me" but the girl who is not trying to cover up flaws but have FUN with her makeup!




Products used:
Urban Decay De-Slick Setting Spray (before and after makeup application)
Origins VitaZing (makes me too shiny... overall good stuff but I'm looking forward to trying out different tinted moisturizers)
100% Pure Foundation in Peach Bisque
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Concealer in Natural Medium
Too Faced Amazing Face Powder Foundation in Warm Vanilla


Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette:
Deep End on moving part of lid, Omen in the middle and outer crease, Junkshow on the inner crease, Vanilla on the inner corners and inner half of undereye, Evidence on the outer half of undereye.  Tainted blending all the outer edges with a fluffy shadow brush.
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil Eye Liner in Junkie on upper lashline and waterline.

Mascara = Kat Von D
Blush = NYX Angel
Lipstick = MAC Hue
Nails = Orly Frolic, with Wet n Wild Stars & Stripes on accent nail

See the pretty slight holographic quality of the stars? They were really easy to pick up, too :)

What kind of look makes you feel the most like yourself?

  4. I love this look. You look absolutely gorgeous. I feel far, far happier in brights. I'm getting so bored of wearing neutrals to work everyday! I guess it makes me appreciate the weekend even more though...

  7. I love this! I adore bright makeup! IT especially looks amazing with your eyes~ Some people think makeup is a mask to hide your real self, but I disagree. I think makeup can bring out who we really are, out inner brightness :)

    Can' wait to see what you think of the LC palettes and what you do with them :D
