No blue, smokey black eyes instead

I would love to try green contacts in the future











For this look, I used Revlon Colorstay Foundation and I didn't like it. I didn't like it when I used it before and I had thought, I can try it again.  The coverage is relatively in the medium range, but it just appears a bit thick and cakey not a nice of a texture.  Maybe makeup artists love this foundation, but maybe it is me, not applying it correctly.





I did this about a week ago, I'm not sure if I applied moisturizer and primer or not- maybe that's why. Or maybe because of the color I chose, it's too dark for my skin tone? The "Stippling brush" I had used isn't a real stippling brush and it took a while to stipple, so I just applied this w/a normal foundation brush.

 I always wished for world peace as a younger kid.

I was trying on some fake individual lashes, they look a bit scary?
Always try to apply makeup in natural light because indoor lights play tricks on you and your makeup may look for better or worse in real life =(


In terms of eyeshadow, I just used various colors I had from my palettes.The model's beautiful green eyes really helps to bring more focus toward her eyes, but it's a bit more difficult for brown eyes to have that same effect. The actual picture's shadow contains more blue and darker lips- I couldn't find any dark lip colors at the time and the blue eyeshadow I had was off running somewhere. Practice, I will keep on practicing.


I just recently purchased Loreal's True Match Foundation and some wedge sponge because this drug store foundation is suppose to be great! I remember during college, my friend Tara had helped me with my makeup before going out and she used this. I love the way it looked on her skin, it appeared as if she had nothing on at all.

Don't forget to pick up your make up gifts and palettes at my shop =) teehee
