Makeup of the Day | Lime Crime + Urban Decay Vice 2 + the Fun Palette

Lime Crime how I love thee.

Lime Crime does funky, opaque lip colors like no other. Their scent is amazing, they go on smooth and they stay in place, eliminating the need for lip liner. I have eight shades (so far!) but my latest favorite is Chinchilla, a grey with purple undertones.

Here’s how I wore it for the first time:

I chose to focus the attention on the lip color by keeping the eye makeup pretty simple.

While there were a couple of people at work that asked if I was okay or told me I looked “gothic” but the majority of the responses were positive. My peers seemed to dig the funky, edgier look as much as I did.

Why I love this color? Well, obviously because it’s purplish (sort of), but also because it’s a way of embracing the edgy black lipstick trend in a more wearable tone.

Makeup of the Day | LORAC POREfection Foundation + Pinks and Purple

 

So, if you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m obsessed with pink and purple eyeshadows. I know people are afraid of them, but they shouldn’t be! I’m hoping that at the very least my posts help inspire people to try them out.

Anywho, the most exciting thing for me today was trying out my new LORAC POREfection Foundation. It’s my first high-end foundation (aside from a MAC foundation I got recently) and I chose it because of the great reviews online. I also happened to color match myself perfectly. Stay tuned for a First Impressions video on it.

LORAC Makeup SALE on Hautelook? Maybe…

Today I’m on the edge of my seat waiting to find out whether or not Hautelook will be having a LORAC palette sale later this morning.

See, on the website the event isn’t listed, but on the app:

20140314-075738.jpg

Why is this so exciting? For starters, LORAC is expensive. I tend to splurge on their eyeshadows mainly because they offer high quality shadows, including mattes, which I can’t say for all high end brands. What makes me even more excited is the fact that it specifically says “palette.” Could we maybe be seeing the PRO palette for a steep discount?

A girl can dream.

Anywho, the maybe sale starts 8 AM PST (11 AM for us east coasters). Be sure to check it out!

Makeup of the Day | Maybelline Color Tattoo Emerald Green + Lorac

Having brown eyes, I tend to avoid blues and greens when it comes to eyeshadow. I’ve recently been trying to embrace these hues by finding different ways to wear them, without looking like a crazy person.

Here’s my most recent green-shadow look:IMG_7465

I chose to make it more user-friendly by using a taupe color in my crease and a plum color in my outer v. This helps make it a usable look and the plum helps make it brown-eye-friendly.

Makeup of the Day | Lorac Mint Collection + Urban Decay

 

Spring is around the corner and it’s time to dust off your color palettes. Mint green is always a winner for spring and it happens to be one of my favorite colors. I love pairing it with a deep plum to add some depth.
