This isn’t really a look, as much as it is for the eyes.
This is what I had on when I went shopping with Miss B from ClumpsOfMascara. We did a little shopping damage around 34th street.
With the warm weather coming on (finally) I am starting to use bronzer and blush more now than ever, and I am breaking out all the bright shadows. I usually incorporate them a little bit every here and there, but once the weather is less frigid, I feel like it is a prerequisite for a day’s outing.
And then some silly shots. Took these in Duane Reade as I was charging my iPhone waiting for Miss B. My iPhone loses the charge practically every four-six hours!!
I didn’t take a picture of what I used, but I guess I could if people want it (you don’t do you? :)~ ). I used colors from the eBay 40 color palette, the Lancome Oscillating mascara, Shadow Insurance, and Too Faced, MAC blush in Dainty, and I forgot what MAC product I used for bronzer (it’s been a long weekend!).
And how long has it been since a yaya inspiration board? This one is purple themed, and is a party to beach in mind.
Makeup Geek has a weekly challenge, well… every week. This week it was all about orange. Here’s my version:
Pop Palette Lid Neon (can’t find a site that sells it & Sephora sold the whole brand at 50% off check if they still have it near you! b/c they no longer carry the brand at the store)
Makeup Forever White (Sephora)
Covergirl Mascara Lash Blast (CoverGirl or Drugstore.com)
Covergirl Professional Natural Lash Mascara Clear (CoverGirl or Drugstore.com)
120 Palette Beauties Factory (eBay)
MAC 224 Blending Brush (MAC)
Sephora 14 Smudge Brush (Sephora)
EDIT: forgot to add the inspiration board!! here you go:

So yesterday was Fat Tuesday/Shrove Tuesday/Mardi Gras (Wikipedia: Fat Tuesday). This was the first time that I did anything or was involved in anything. My coworker treated the whole staff to King cake (another tradition I was unawares to). She also treated us to beads (no topless acts included). The colors of the beads inspired an EOTD – below.

Still getting used to the right way to photograph as well as edit and post, so bear with me! 🙂
All this excitement also made me create an inspiration
board of sorts for Mardi Gras. Tell me what you think.
What did you do yesterday? Do you have any Mardi Gras stories/looks?
