How did you do your makeup?

I got asked this at least 3 times today, which I thought was really weird. I was like "Uh... I put on some eyeshadow... then eyeliner." It was that simple, I don't have time to do great looks before school, unfortunately. I wasn't even bothering to put on blush. I wanted to try out some of my Urban Decay stuff from the Haute Look sale, and the amazing Bare Escentuals Buxom gloss set I got from my friend Maria for Christmas (review coming soon!) What I used: UDPP UD Lingerie Eyelash Primer UD shadow in Acid Rain L.A. Colors shadow in Honeysuckle (highlight) UD liquid liner in Lucky L'Oreal Extra Volume Collagen Mascara Bare Escentuals Buxom gloss in Joy I have never used a liquid liner until today :O I am already addicted. Enjoy your week!


  1. I find it interesting that you wear eyeshadow but not blush. I find that putting on eyeshadow takes me a long time to do something with my eyes, so its liner/mascara/blush and out the door for me!

    It's really interesting seeing different people's application of makeup. great look! xoxox

  2. I used to skip blush until last incase I didn't have time but I noticed when I wear a super concealing foundation and my skin is all one tone, I look sickly without it so it goes on right after foundation. That could just be my weird skin tone though. I'm half native half dutch one side is dark the other a nation of uber pale blondes and I'm the creamy inbetween lol.
    I do sorta hate when people do ask me how I do my makeup in public. It's too hard to explain. I just write down the websites I bought the stuff from and tell them to go watch youtube and go nuts.

    Isn't Acid Rain FANTASTIC!?! It looks really cool with your liner. You got it pretty even for a first shot!

  3. Lucky looks awesome with your eye colour :)

    If I wasnt obsessed with makeup I wouldnt have time to apply it before uni, but since Im obsessed with makeup I MAKE time to put it on ;D

  4. You look gorgeous in UD!!

    Yeah I'm always confused when people ask me how I "do" my makeup. I'm like "well, I buy quality makeup and quality brushes and then I swipe it on". Not really too much to say! I'm always confused haha !

  5. That looks is great!

    And I never know how to answer that question. I'm like "errrr...?"

  6. You look great! Love those colors on you :)

  7. I get asked the same question all the time, and I've actually been accused of "holding out" on people because I wasn't sure how to explain it. I always just tell people that I use high quality brushes, high quality makeup, and a technique that took me years of practice. :) It's hard to explain otherwise, and no matter how nice I am, I sometimes get a sort of bitchy look/comment in return. When that happens, I just tell them it's a learned skill, give them my business card, and tell them to book an appointment for a makeup lesson. LOL.

    As for your look, I think you did a really good job with your liner...especially for a first try! I'm addicted to liquid liner myself!

  8. It looks lovely! You did an amazing job with the liquid liner for your first ever go! I actually find liquid eyeliner easier to apply than pencil. I really like the coppery eyeliner and the pretty pink lips :)

  9. @OMA: I feel so weird and naked without eyeshadow! I feel like bright shadow, or at least a bright liner, is my signature.

    @AxSDenied: Thank you :) I write down the websites sometimes for people too.

    @SilhouetteScreams: I wake up at 6:30 and leave at 7:45... 30-45 minutes of that is hair, makeup, and outfit... if I did REAL fun makeup, I think I would have to be up at least 15 minutes earlier than I already am >_<

    @LK&Julissa&Sagu: Thanks lovelies :D

    @Veronica: People are so weird. But I guess that's a good way to get business!

    @Lillian: Thank you very much :)

  10. Ugh...that question is soo annoying and whenever someone asks me, "how do you do your makeup?", I just say "carefully". Hee hee.
    You look great as always and I love that liner.

  11. Thank you! It is awesome, I love Urban Decay.
