EOTD / Color Challenge

Happy Wednesday! Keeping with my 2017 makeup resolutions, I made sure to wake up extra early so I could do a look more complicated than my usual neutral grab & go.
This one isn’t so much an Eyeshadow Roulette (as I have yet to wrangle all my eyeshadows into a spreadsheet) but more of a color challenge!Β It’s a bit inspired by all those gorgeous warm toned Modern Renaissance looks that are everywhere nowadays!

Ignore how tired I look- it’s week two of my cold that won’t go away :/

Halloween Makeup Roundup – Five Looks from The Wicked & The Divine Comic Book

Happy November 1 everyone! Halloween is my favorite holiday yet I found myself this year with no solid plans and no costume! So what’s a girl to do? Whip out her makeup collection and make an awesome Halloween face πŸ™‚

Femme Fatale Eyeshadow Swatches

If I could restart my eyeshadow collection from scratch… I might do it with only Femme Fatale! These eyeshadows are some of my top favorites of all time. Their pigmentation, blendability, and unique color selection outperform many indies and mainstream. IΒ highly recommend these.

Most of these areΒ Femme Fatale’s famous duochrome eyeshadows. I don’t own all of them (because there are some darker colors and greens I don’t really wear) but I own a big chunk of their lighter duochromes! Go ahead and read on; you’ll be wowed πŸ™‚

Face of the Day / Eye of the Day

I hope everyone is having a good week so far! Today I have a face of the day / eye of the day photo for you! I’m trying to do a “no repeat” Novemeber sort of thing and use everything in my collection at least once. I have so many eyeshadows and lipsticks that I tend to default to my favorite ones. Forcing myself to do a unique look every day will help me really use all my products, discover hidden gems, and help me findΒ which things I can destash πŸ™‚
