Today's Makeup and New Shoes (cheap!)
The pic above shows me this morning before I left for work. As I was taking the picture on my Blackberry, the cat was yelling at me (very loudly), demanding my full attention. She gets extra needy whenever her 'daddy' is away on business. Let me tell you, getting her to go bed last night was practically impossible! Brat!
Nevertheless, I would like to share with you today's makeup!
MAC Paint Pot in Rollickin' (a pearly, seafoam, green-blue cream shadow base) was applied to the lower lids.
MAC Aquadisiac eyeshadow (a shimmery teal) was applied on top of Rollickin' Paint Pot.
MAC Surreal Shadow (a shimmery green-based light blue) was blended onto the crease.
MAC Crystal Avalanche (a bright white pearl) was applied to the browbone.
MAC Liquidlast Liner in Point Black was applied in a cat-wing shape using a MAC 208 brush.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eyepencil in Electric was applied to the lower lash line and then was set with MAC eyeshadow in Aquadisiac (using MAC 212 brush).
Maybelline Volum'Express One by One Mascara in Black (Waterproof) was applied to top and bottom lashes.
MAC Eyepencil in Fascinating (a stark white) was applied to my waterline.
On my face, I am wearing Guerlain's Parure Gold Foundation in Beige Claire 01, MAC blush in Pink Swoon, and Murad's Acne Treatment Concealer in Light (to cover a few breakouts). I set my face makeup with Coty Airspun Loose Powder in Translucent and finished the look with Make Up For Ever's Rouge Artist Intense lipstick in #45 and MAC Lipliner in Cherry.
Today, I am also wearing a new pair of Miss Me? black velvet-esque fabric (almost a faux suede-like material) platform shoes. I bought these on Endless.com (a division of Amazon) for $40.00USD! They also come in purple!
Overall, I know I will be wearing these shoes a lot! They have a great 40s style that will pair well with many things like dresses, skirts, and even wide leg, high-waist trousers.
I hope everyone is having a good 'hump day!'
