EOTD: Ethereal Blues
I've been having a ton of makeup fails lately, and it's very frustrating. The last few days I've had to start over at least twice because I didn't like how the look was turning out. I think I need to stick with simpler looks or neutrals for a while. This is something that started out being a smokey dark blue look. Kind of the opposite end of the spectrum, but I loved it. I had to pick up my sister from school and go to Walgreens before I was done with my whole face, so I had these crazy eyes but no face makeup whatsoever. I felt so awkward :P What I used: Concrete Minerals eye primer Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy The Overlook, by Killer Cosmetics (inner lid) Morbid Faith, by Hi FI (outer lid/crease) Lumi, by Sugarpill (highlight) Stila smudge pot in Cobalt Clutch Covergirl Liquiline Blast liners on waterline (they don't have names on them, but I think they are called Blue Blaze and Silver Spark) L'Oreal Extra Collagen mascara In other news, I am sadly going on a no buy until probably at least halfway through November, if not that whole month. The only exceptions are if I run out of my tinted moisturizer or mascara or something. I think I've already ordered all the Halloween stuff I want, so at least that's good. The reason is because I decided to never wear my retainer after I got my braces off, so now my teeth have shifted and my retainers don't fit. I have to get new ones and it's going to cost me $390 :( With the hours I've been working lately, that's like an entire paycheck and a half out of my savings. I'm going to rediscover great products I already have!
