I should be ashamed of myself. I haven't blogged for so long that I forgot how to take proper pictures of my makeup. Ugh.
At least I finally have a post up. I have been so busy since school started that I actually started using a makeup bag (never had one before!) so that I could do my makeup in class, and essentially put on the same makeup everyday. Needless to say, I hated it. There's no love or creativity in putting on makeup for functional purposes. During my undergrad, I hardly put on makeup for school because I didn't want to rush it, but I figured that if I didn't put on makeup in a cosmetology program, I would look like I didn't belong. Well, I actually don't really belong there because makeup is not a big part of the program apparently and I have zero experience in hair, nails, and skincare. Joy.
Back to the FOTD. This is a look from Saturday, because I would not have the time to put on something like this on a weekday when I have class. I desperately needed some color as I have been slapping on neutrals for the past three weeks, but still had to remain presentable for work. I settled for gold and purples, colors that remind me of my junior high school colors and royalty, hence the title.
I really hate how photography highlights the discoloration around my lips. Fie upon thee.

I went out to dinner with some friends Thursday night, and I didn't have time to redo my makeup. So instead I threw on a red lipstick and ran out the door. Aside from the red lipstick, this is what I usually wear to class. The products are not even worth mentioning. Haha.
Like I said, plain and bland. I am ITCHING to do something bright, fun, and totally not wearable. Maybe I'll do that in class if I have time. That way I can get credit for it. Bwahahahahahaha!!!
It feels great to be blogging again. :)
