I often find myself wanting to put makeup on people – so these are a few pics from two Saturdays ago, when I dolled up my darling friend Sarah, who was so much fun to work with; I can’t wait to make her look like a high-class hooker again sometime!
Don’t mind the eyebrows – I feel like I must be part Lebanese, but damn I do my best to keep them under control. My new vanity is really helping to make me even more makeup-crazy! I had so much fun doing this look. And now all I can think of are ways to make it look even better. Sigma brushes are the best thing that has ever happened to my makeup collection. Their vegan Mrs Bunny Kit rocks my world!
My mother insists I go to the Easter Vigil every year at her church, and while I am not a Christian, I don’t mind getting dressed up all pretty and making her happy at the same time. Plus, there’s always an awesome after with wine and other goodies. Love it!
I thought I’d take pictures of the makeup look I did, although I wish my lighting was better so you all could better see my eyeshadow colours.
The colours were much more bright in person. I’ve got to figure out how to get my lighting right. I used these purple and pink-ish colours because of the pastels that come with the theme of Easter. Spring also makes me think of pinks and purples, and the weather has just been getting really nice, so I felt in a pinky purple mood.
It is just a very simple look. Here’s a breakdown of the products I used. Moisturizer: Origins VitaZing, Primer: TooFaced Primed and Poreless, Concealer: ELF’s All Over Cover Stick in Apricot Beige, Foundation: Revlon Photoready in 007 (ha!), Blush/Bronzer: ELF’s Blushed/Bronzed compact, Eyeliner (tight-lined and water-lined on upper and lower lashes): Buxom Lashliner in Suede, topped with Nyx pencil liner in Black, Mascara: Nyx Doll Eye Mascara (Volumizing), Eyeshadow: Stila’s poetic (lid), chiffon (inner corner), and flamingo (crease and outer corner). On my lips I’ve got Smashbox’s lip enhancing gloss in Tease.
I had so much fun doing this look; I hope to be able to show off more, and get my lighting worked out so that the colour can be shown off. I swear it looked better in person. Thanks for reading!
