Muted Mint EOTD & blog love

Also known as "Relax, Julia Dreams of an Uncharted Crystalline Baby"! I had a very clear idea in mind of how I wanted this to look, and it didn't turn out how I planned. I should have used a NYX jumbo eye pencil (in shade Cottage Cheese) as a base since I was using such pale colors. Oh well. I still like it, it uses many colors but is very understated. What I used: Concrete Minerals Eye Primer Relax, by Sassy (lid) Uncharted, by Meow (outer v) Julia Dream, by Hi Fi (crease) Crystalline Highlight #10, by Detrivore (highlight) Baby, by Aromaleigh (under waterline) HiP Cream Crayon in Meticulous (eyeliner) Rimmel liner in brown (waterline) L'Oreal Extra Collagen mascara Maybelline Falsies mascara I never do extended out v's (I call them butterfly wings) cus I suck at getting them symmetrical, but I actually got it pretty even this time. Random updates: Going out of town for a couple days and probably won't be able to post. :( My Suds N Sass package I ordered should be getting here tomorrow, and I'm bummed I won't be able to tear it open! I have to figure out what makeup to pack, I hate making that decision... *sigh*... also, Cherry Culture is having a 20% off sale that ends on the 30th, so take advantage of it now. I placed a small order, I'll show you my goodies when they arrive. Now for some blog lovin... Yeah, I know that bobby pin is pretty awesome. You can buy them at Julissa's Etsy Shop for only $1! I got the cutest earrings too, I'll make sure to show you guys sometime. Here's some blogs I've started following recently, read them and weep (at how much beauty has just been brought into your life, obviously). I may have already posted some before, I'm not going to dig through old posts to see.

  11. Your look came out beautiful! (even if it's not what you had imagined) I find that sometimes the "sour notes" (as us musicians call them) can be the best creations ever! Also, thanks for the link love! ^_^

  14. I LOVE this. It's awesome! I need to do pastels soon, you have inspired me... It's hard to find pigmented pastels that don't just look white though. Especially mint green!
