Christmas EOTD

Sorry for the blurry lashes!

This is the makeup I did today, I'm going to try to do more of these. I wasn't going anywhere so I just did something simple and fairly light, I tend to wear darker makeup. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I used the Coastal Scents 42 Double Matte palette, Wet N Wild Color Icon Brow and Liner in Green, and a Maybelline single eyeshadow in Made for Mocha, ELF Liquid liner, and Loreal Voluminous Millon Lashes Mascara. I also used the Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden.

 I used a mid tone brown in my crease as a transition color, then a redish brown over that, used the Made for Mocha, a dark brown; in my outter v. I lightly applied a white to the lid and under my brow, I just wanted this to brighten up my lid and brow bone, I didn't want it to be an obvious white. I lined my upper lash line with the liquid liner doing a simple line and used the green on my bottom lash line, water and tight line. I set all of my liner with matching colors. Lastly I applied mascara.

NOTD: First Mate, plus mini haul


It's been a bad few weeks, especially these past two weeks, which is why I haven't been blogging and for it being such a crumby week I decided I needed to treat myself to a few new bottles of nail polish. I picked up, all by China Glaze, Ingrid and then the two for today's NOTD Whirled Away(limited edition, part of the Cirque Du Soleil Worlds Away collection) and First Mate. Ingrid is a mid tone taupe brown with a subtle gold shimmer, Whirled Away is a clear based, not glitter so I guess confetti polish with mainly black but some white chunks too, all in different sizes. First Mate is a beautiful dark almost navy blue. I love the combination of First Mate and Whirled Away, I will say that I was a bit disappointed by Whirled Away but I am glad to have it because it looks really nice after a few coats but on its on or just one coat is a bit disappointing. I only used Whirled Away on my ring finger as an accent nail. I didn't use a top coat or a base coat. All polishes purchased at Sally Beauty Supply.

Sorry for the glare!
