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 :/

Birds of a Feather: Greens

It’s a Saturday swatch party at my place and everyone is invited πŸ™‚

I’ve had quite a backlog of my Birds of a Feather series that I’ve been meaning to post… so I’m procrastinating on packing for my move by playing with my makeup! Today I have jewels to show off: my emeralds! Now not all of these areΒ emerald, but these are my dark greens to my weird olives. I love green- it really helps show off the green in my hazel eyes. Alas, I rarely wear it as anything other than liner. I just can’t seem to get a fully green eye look to work on me! Any tips and tutorials from you guys would be loved ❀

Birds of a Feather: Blues & Greens

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another installment of ‘Birds of a Feather’! This time I moved on to my eyeshadow collection and catalogued my blues and greens. I’ll go back to my lipstick collection soon, no worries! There’s just so many reds that are ever so slightly different that it’s taking a bit more time than usual. Isn’t that always the problem with reds, haha πŸ˜‰

Anyways, onto today’s colors!

(Note: this was totally supposed to be published yesterday but apparently my queue decided to be difficult :P)

Happy TuesdayΒ  Wednesday!Β Today I have swatches of Notoriously Morbid’s October Vanishing Cabinet subscription box, with the Harry Potter ghosts theme! It was actually a VC overstock box, and since I don’t have a subscription I’m really happy I snagged one! I’m a total sucker for anything Harry Potter and I’ve always wanted to try NM’s subscription!
