Are you an everyday eyeshadow gal, a weekend wearer, or do you just wear it once in a blue moon?
I was chatting with a makeup-loving friend the other day — a fellow eyeshadow palette hoarder — when I was shocked to discover that, aside from mascara and a smidgen of liner, she only wears eyeshadow on weekends.
“Uh…” I said, visibly confused, “that’s only, like, two days a week!? Are you kidding me right now?”
I pretty much do the opposite. I’ll usually wear eyeshadow during the week, and then give my lids a break on Saturdays and Sundays (unless I’m going out). Most of the time, I’ll just do mascara, maybe some liner, and that’s it.
But the rest of the week is a shadow free for all! And with it being fall, I’ve been wearing a lot of darker colors and smokey looks, like this smokey cat eye I wore the other day using the new MAC RiRi Phresh Out and the NARS Crime of Passion palettes.
What about you? How often do you wear eyeshadow? And what do you wear when you don’t? Inquiring minds want to know.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Good mornin’, and welcome to the hump.
OK, so, totally not eyeshadow related, but can we talk blazers for a moment? I love how a cute blazer to pull an entire outfit together.
Today I’m wearing one I found on sale at Anthropologie a few weeks ago called the Delacour by Leifnotes, and seriously — it’s like the Pajama Jeans of blazers.
I used to be more willing to sacrifice comfort for fashion, but those days are gone. Now, if something’s itchy, stiff or binding in any way, I just can’t do it.
Basically, I want everything to feel like yoga pants or sweats… At least that’s the idea.
Aaaand that’s why I love this blazer. It’s all snugly, warm and cozy, almost like a sweatshirt. It’s actually made from a sweater-like material — a soft polyester and viscose blend.
Oh, and hello! — no need worry about this bad boy wrinkling. You can fold it up, shove it in a bag, and it keeps its shape.
Right now it’s on sale at Anthropologie, marked down from $148 to $79.95.
