Heya, girlies! Thanks for your feedback on potential makeup looks I could wear to my friend Jen’s upcoming wedding in November. For this go ’round of Wedding Palette Auditions I thought I’d try a gold eye with light cheeks and pink lips using another Stila palette, Cover Look No. 2. Let me know your thoughts.
I found Cover Look No. 2 on BeautyCrunch.com on sale for $15.20 (originally $40). It’s all about gold and combines the shade with peach, pink and taupe.
Lame eyeshadow: a shimmery cool gold
Oasis eyeshadow: a shimmery peachy gold
Coin eyeshadow: a shimmery peachy-taupe with gold flecks
Tint cheek color: a matte peach
Enchanting lipgloss: a shimmery peachy pink gold
Most of us felt the look with Stila Cover Look No. 4 didn’t pack enough oomph, so to bump up the drama with this look I added a thick line of MAC Fluidline in Graphic brown on the top lash line. On the lips, I layered MAC Cremesheen lipstick in Speak Louder beneath the Stila lipgloss.
What do you think?
I like the idea of the look, but I dunno if it’s “the one.” What do you think of the pink lips? I think it might be a little too disco for a church wedding. Don’t get me wrong — I’m usually pro-disco lips (WOOT!), but maybe not this time.
Do you think I should turn it up? Tone it down? Maybe I’ll just show up in clown costume and makeup…
Some Cats Aren’t Cool
After I got home from work yesterday, I opened the front door to air the place out. I was sitting at my computer desk with my back to the door, reading beauty news and surfing the web.
That’s when I heard a sound coming from the kitchen — crunching, and like something being dragged across kitchen tiles. I figured Tabs had come in and was eating from his bowl of Friskies and didn’t bother to look…
Until the crunching turned into smacking and the dragging turned into what sounded like some monster destroying the kitchen.
It wasn’t Tabs.
Instead, it was his nemesis, the starved calico who lives next door. It’s nearly feral and hisses at anything that moves. The thing had crept in behind me to steal some of Tabs’ Friskies.
Normally, I like all animals, but this cat is consistently mean to me, hissing and lunging at my legs whenever it sees me outside. I shooshed it out, but not before snapping a picture…
For the record, I do not intend to steal this cat.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
