Playing around with Sugarpill & Falsies

I had a long day yesterday, and I'll have many more to come due to finals, final papers, and so forth.  Still, I squashed in some time yesterday to play with makeup.  This was much needed.  I've been dying to use my Sugarpill pigments that I got back in February when they last had their 20% off sale.  I will absolutely be doing a full review on those once I have played with them some more, because I am in LOVE with the pigments and for sure be buying every single color next time they have a sale and when I start getting paid.

Here's the look:

Yeah, so just don't mind the chunks of dried lash glue everywhere.  It was my second time putting on falsies and I got a little glue happy.  I actually pulled a few of my eyelashes out when removing the lashes. Ouch.

BUT--This look was so much fun to create!  I was in desperate need of some color and drama, since my everyday looks are a little bit toned down for my taste.  If I had the time and the confidence, I'd wear looks like this everyday.  I have craploads of lashes that I bought from ebay that I'm not using because they're bit, fat, and intimidating as hell.  The ones used here are from Duo, and they are the most tame pair of lashes that I have.  I can't wait to play with the other ones some more, now that I have kinda sorta gotten used to them. Yay yay yay!

There are definitely a few things I would have done differently now that I look back at the look.  I would have used Magpie wet, so that it would show up better on the lid (in photos anyway).  Maybe I should have chosen a different inner corner highlight, or brought the lid color a little further in.  In any case, I look forward to doing a lot more looks like these.

-Smashbox Foundation in Light 3
-L'oreal TruMatch Foundation in N6
-NYC Matte Bronzer in Sunny
-BareMinerals Well-Rested undereye brightener
