Earlier today I needed a little help getting over the hump day blues, so I pointed my browser in the direction of Urban Decay’s big friends and family sale.
From now through August 20, get 30% off online orders with coupon code FNFF1 at checkout.
I was looking at the online fall catalog when I felt a sudden urge to play.
This was my inspiration for the eyes…
…and then I tried a version of these nude lips here:
LOL, pardon the fan action. I couldn’t resist.
I was actually sweating bullets in these pics because it was like hot soup in my apartment today.
The lips and eyes
Deluxe Eyeshadow in Frigid
Getting sharp eyeliner edges
Messing around today I tried a new trick to get sharp lines. I wet the edge of a wedged makeup sponge with eye makeup remover (I used Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover) and gently ran the sponge along the edge of the liner.
Not bad, right? They aren’t as sharp as a Louboutin heel, but they’re good enough for government work!
Dark lips bring the drama
I also tried a second version of the look, swapping the nude lip look for a darker vampy one.
Hope you had a good day today. Looks like we’re over the hump!
