Yeah, yeah, I know, I keep posting about dark lips even though it’s May. But whatever, I do what I want. Also it’s been kind of cold in Chicago lately, so I extra don’t care. Summergoth forever!
Today I mixed two of my Nyx Round Case Lipsticks ($3.99). I used Pinto Bean (a frosty brown color that reminds me of one of my favorite 90’s lippies) and Rapture (super dark plummy brown). It was a little harsh at first, so I blotted it down until I was happy with the results.
I was too lazy to dig out my eye primer today, so I actually smudged my Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Underground ($19) all over lids instead. It blended surprisingly well! These pencils are so awesome at everything. Then I patted “Shameless Shana” from TheBalm’s Shady Lady Vol. 1 Palette ($39.50) all over the lid, plus “Caught in the Act Courtney” blended into the outer corner and along lower lashline. I used the highlighter from the Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette along my browbone and in the inner corners. And of course, I lined the upper lashline and waterline with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Pencil in Zero ($19) and finished with L’Oreal Waterproof Voluminous Volume Building Mascara ($7.99). For some reason, the pictures make the shadow look lighter than it is in real life. Must be the shimmer.
I also used my Urban Decay Naked Flushed kit ($30) for its intended highlighting-and-contouring purpose and am still really happy with it. My chiseled cheeks are Blue Steel-ready.
