This is the most makeup I’ve used in weeks.

OK…two months.


I KNOW! For somebody who lives, breathes as well as dreams about this stuff, I haven’t been doing as well well in the actual “putting on makeup” department.

It’s just a phase, which occurs sometimes, as well as I’ll get with it. perhaps my makeup today will be the very first step. I’ll begin with this warm reddish smoky eye as well as MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande dark plum lips, then develop as much as false lashes tomorrow. Then, on Friday, it’s worldwide makeup domination! Er…or something like that.


Even though El Hub states that this lipstick makes me look “vampiric,” I like it. If you’ve had your eye on this (and, seriously, it’s so gorgeously matte as well as darkly plummy, exactly how might you not?), it just shown up on counters as well as the MAC website today with its adorable cohort, MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipglass ($15).

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipstick ($17)
I’m using the Lipstick here, by the way, with MAC Cyber world Lip Pencil, because, for the life of me, I just can’t do this color directly from the bullet. It’s as well dang hard, homie! Something like MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil would totally likewise work if you occur to have it around.

Eyes, Cheeks as well as Skin

I swear, one of these days I’ll switch out the Tartelette In Bloom combination that’s been chillin’ in my makeup bag for the past two months, however it’s still up in the mix for now…

I’m using a few of the shades from the bottom row — orangey reddish brown Sweetheart, matte reddish brown Rebel as well as dark reddish brown Leader — on my lids as well as lower lash lines.

The black kitten flick (it’s so small that I don’t believe I can phone call it a feline eye flick in great conscience, meow!), I did with Clinique’s quite simple liquid Eyelining Pen, which you may like if you’re into super skinny, shiny black lines as well as don’t want to work as well hard.

For my skin, since there was already so much matte up in the mix on my eyes as well as lips, I went the radiant path with the new BECCA Aqua luminous Perfecting foundation set with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish natural for contrast, as well as then I swept a luminous plummy blush on my cheeks (Hourglass mood Exposure). then I highlighted my upper cheekbones with soft beige hourglass Ambient Powder in luminous Light.

Honestly, I could’ve spent a bit more time blending whatever together…but you understand exactly how it is. sometimes you just wanna hurry up as well as put on your vampire makeup so you can go to Target as well as buy some nipple cream as well as a nursing bra.


Wait — or is that just me?
