I feel like this eye look with MAC Swiss Chocolate Eye Shadow is more fall than spring, but eh, whatcha gonna do? Sometimes, the body wants chocolate, and when the body wants chocolate, YOU GIVE THE BODY ?? CHOCOLATE, lest horrible consequences ensue.
I don’t know why it occurred to me today (CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE), but I got this idea to wear Swiss Chocolate shadow with Heroine Lipstick from Sam at Pixiwoo (don’t you just love her?). She wore them together in a video a few years back. On her lighter skin tone, Swiss Chocolate looks reddish brown, but it leans a little more purplish on me. I think it’s a lovely color.
I didn’t follow Sam’s tutorial to a T because, ya know, I’m all ’bout that improv life, but I tried to maintain the “essence” of the look… I just put my personal Karen spin on it. 🙂
Main things I’m wearing…
Eyes: MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre (as a base on my lids), MAC Brule Eye Shadow (on my lids and under my brow bone), MAC Swiss Chocolate Eye Shadow (crease), MAC Texture Eye Shadow (upper crease), Chanel Stylo Yeux Liner in Noir Petroe (water lines and lash lines) and NARS Audacious Mascara (lashes).
Cheeks: NARS Sun Wash Bronzer in Laguna (my cheeks, around the edge of my face and across my nose) and Hourglass Ambient Blush in Mood Exposure (apples of my cheeks).
Should I have added false lashes? Hmm… I kinda wanted to, but I felt like it would have been too much look.
Also, I may have been the most unintentionally glamorous mom (or the most overdressed mom, depending on how you look at it) at the pediatrician’s office today because Connor had to go in for a checkup (she’s fine).
She’s at the point now where she comprehends what happens sometimes at the doctor’s office (like cold instruments, cold tables, shots), and she gets extra needy and concerned when we’re walking in. She clings to my neck and won’t let go! ? Sometimes I have to calm down more than she does.
