Spring break makeups hurr hurr

March 24, 2011

Went to Chicago for a couple of days and actually wore makeup, which is AWESOME because that whole ‘less sucky skin’ thing makes it go far more quickly in the mornings.

Lid/crease:  ES Cerberus over Pixie Epoxy

Inner corner/highlight:  mmm…. possibly SM Silk Sheets, maybe AL Alyssum

Liner:  Covergirl marker thing, which I still love

The thing that drove me NUTS about these pictures is that they only show the coppery shimmer of Cerberus, making it look like a boring brown.  In reality it looked more like a deep red-maroon with strong (but not overwhelming) shimmer and just the tiniest hint of fuchsia at the edges.  The first photo is a little closer to what I mean, but still.  STILL.

Lid:  lightest matte from the WnW Vanity palette

Crease:  medium matte from WNW Vanity palette

Liner:  SM Gasoline Rainbow over Pixie Epoxy

Lower lashline:  shitty smudged eyeliner

Mascara:  Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof

Probably shouldn’t have let the PE dry as much as it did, but whatevs.  I liked the way this looked.

Lid:  lightest matte from WnW Vanity palette

Crease:  darker shimmer from same palette

Highlight:  very tiny amount of the light gold in same palette

Liner:  Archetype Unseelie Court

Mascara:  Maybelline The Falsies waterproof

Crappy pictures of a pretty/simple look.  I really liked this, and I’m pretty bummed that the pictures don’t show how nice it actually looked.  Such is life, yes?

    Cerberus and Gasoline Rainbow are GORGEOUS! You look fantastic in all these looks. (And I happen to like smudgy eyeliner, so just pretend it was on purpose and go on with your bad self. ;) )
