A few things…
First, this morning I tried on a pair of skinny jeans I ordered online and got stuck in them.
Apparently, I wasn’t paying close enough attention and ordered the wrong size.
I’d managed to shimmy into them up to my thighs when I realized that something was very wrong, and if I’d kept going, I’d need prayer and the Jaws of Life to get out of them.
Lesson learned here, kids. If you’re going to purchase the Citizens of Humanity Avedon skinny jeans, go up at least one size.
Second, SWV lives!!!
I found them while channel surfing last night. SWV Reunited on WE. The combination of early ’90s R&B and reality TV gets me weak in the knees… I can hardly speak. I lose all control. Then something comes over me… Hahaha!
Third, I realized this afternoon that pinkish bronze metallic eyes are totally fun. And not too hard to create, believe it or not! I got the idea from a pink and bronze eye look I saw on UD’s website.
For this face of the day, I went with a few products from MAC, NARS and Urban Decay.
I didn’t want to spend forever and a day blending, so I started by applying MAC Indianwood Paint Pot on my lids and in the crease for a creamy base that I could just blend the lid color into without any fuss.
Then, I wet a brush and applied NARS Nepal eyeshadow, a soft sheer rose from the NARSissist Eye Palette, on my lids.
Next, right at the edge of that pink shadow, I ran a smidgen of velvety cocoa Fez, also from the palette, to darken the crease, ever so slightly.
For my water lines, I did — surprise! — MAC Costa Riche, and for my lower lash lines, more Fez, this time blended out with a little Madrague II, also from the NARSissist palette.
Cheeks? More NARS! I used tea rose Love Blush on the apples.
Lastly, for my lips, I did the nude lip combo I told mentioned earlier using MAC Boldly Bare Lip Pencil and Urban Decay Naked Lipgloss in Liar.
Hmm… Now where can I go with this on? I do have to run to the post office today.
