FOTD: Neutrals Overload

I love having as much time as I want to apply my makeup.  It makes makeup seem more fun than functional.  I wanted to throw on some bright colors today but I always seem to have some excuse not to do so.  Yesterday's excuse (as this was yesterday's look) was that I had thrown on a shirt that was meant to be for my dad but he didn't fit.  In other words, my outfit was very casual, so I didn't want to over do it on the makeup.  Still, I didn't want something boring so I threw this together:

I actually took about 50 pictures, and narrowed it down to these few.  I'm really mad that the pictures don't show the look in more detail.  I used about 4 neutral-y colors around the eye, and made it somewhat of a more dramatic day time look.  I used some gold on the bottom lashline to contrast the midnight blue eyeliner on the top and bottom lashline.  To keep up with the casual theme, I just slapped on some lipgloss.

-Aveeno tinted moisturizer in medium
-Laura Mercier setting powder
-NYC Matte Bronzer in Sunny
-NARS blush in Deep Throat

-MAC Painterly Paintpot
-Naked Palette: Virgin, Smog, Half-baked, Buck, Dark Horse
-Too Faced e/s in Heavenly
-L'oreal HIP gel eyeliner in Midnight Blue
-Milani Liquifeye eyeliner in Black
-L'oreal Extra Collagen Mascara

-Buxom lipgloss (shade unknown)

Whee!  I'm getting back into the swing of things.  I loooovee makeup =D!!!


  1. I love the touch of blue liner on your eye.

  2. I adore blue liner and it looks fab on you! Gorgeous! x

  3. Great look, I love that it is neutral but has such depth! The blue eyeliner is a nice touch.

  4. I love this look. I don't really want to go crazy with my makeup on casual days but a colored eyeliner always does the trick without being over the top

  5. loved the way of you using blue liner to this brown look! one sees it so seldom! joy over this!
