FOTD: Random New Years Look...


Been up and out pretty much all the time, which is why I haven't posted.  I did however, get a chance to play around with some makeup for a potential new years look...

I wanted to go with colour under my eyes rather than on my eyelids (I have hooded eyelids), since everything disappears.  I did manage to throw in some taupe and browns on the upper, outsides of my eyelids for some depth.

Here's the look I came up with... Let me know what you think!

REVIEW: Lipstick Haul (Mainly Pics only)

Having lip issues lately where I find that my lips appear darker than usual.  So I've kind of become obsessive with finding a nice MLBB (my lips but better) lipstick or lip color.  I recently looked over some home remedies that naturally lighten your lips, but that will be another posting :).

This lip hoard thing came about after purchasing a lip product that I seen a co-worker sporting.  The color looked sooo nice on her, but the problem is it didn't look as pretty on me.  I guess cause my natural lip color is darker than hers.  Blegh!  Boo my dark lips..they make me look so old.

In order to get a similar result to hers I obviously have to tone down my natural lip colour.  That's fine except, my lips dry out considerably and look flaky.  I've exfoliated but it doesn't help much.. :(  If you have a remedy for this, please throw it out...I would love to hear :)

Anyways..onto the lipsticks.  After seeing it on her I went to purchase it and picked up a few more colours, because my local drugstore was having a sale!
