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!

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!
