Hey there cuties! It’s been a looooong time since I’ve last posted. This semester has seriously gone by so fast; I feel like it just started yesterday and now I graduate in 15 days!!! I can’t think about it too much or else I’ll lose all motivation to do anything for the next two weeks.
Anyways, I played around with my makeup for the first time in a while and I ended up really loving it! It’s also been a while since I’ve had to photograph myself to try and make my makeup look good, so it was a little awkward haha but here it is:
I actually saw this look on Pinterest so I decided to try it out and it worked out surprisingly well. I have a little bit of red eyeshadow on my lids mostly focused in my crease (which I was super nervous about but ended up loving), a black winged liner (of course), a blue liner along my lower water line, a dark blue liner and shadow smudged along my lower lash line, then a stark white shadow concentrated in the inner corners of my eyes! As well as a brow highlight, but you can’t see it very well in these pictures.
The next thing I was super proud of was my lipstick! I used to never wear just regular lipstick because I was so in love with how long lasting liquid lipstick is. However, I absolutely love the new lipstick I picked up from Milani Cosmetics. I completely filled in my lips with their Colour Statement Lipliner in 02 True Red and then topped it off with their matte lipstick in 68 Matte Iconic. I think the lipliner has a little more pink in it than the lipstick, but they’re still super similar and work great together!
Overall, my 4th of July was pretty great! I mean, besides my car breaking down while carpooling with our neighbors, making it so that six people had to cram into a small five-person car to get home, everything else went pretty well! The sunset and fireworks were gorgeous, I ran into some friends I hadn’t seen in forever, the doughnuts were freaking delicious, and my husband and I bought light-up squid hats. Not sure how it could have gotten better than that!
I hope your 4th of July was fabulous, and even if you don’t celebrate the 4th of July I hope you had a fabulous day! Hope you see you again soon 🙂
