FOTD: Unconscious repeat

I have been either doing "functional" makeup or going bare faced lately, so having time to sit down and enjoy applying my makeup is real treat.  I know I say this over and over again but I like bright, colorful looks.  What usually happens, however, is that I create something very wearable.

In my attempt to make something bright and fun, my unconscious took over and I gravitated towards a color combination that I have used not once, but twice before.  Of course, I don't realize this until I finish the look.  Boo.

I thought this may still be worth posting though, if only to feature a new foundation I'm using.  I am super low on my Smashbox foundation, so I'm saving it for times when I have to do my makeup at the speed of light.  I bought this Eve Pearl foundation a couple years ago on Hautelook*.  I gawked at the $54 original price tag and snagged this for $20.  I still can't get over how it looks so dark in person but so light on camera.  It's supposed to be an HD foundation.

Anyways, here's the look!

-Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer
-Eve Pearl High Definition Dual Foundation in Light
-NARS Laguna Bronzer (lots of it)
-MAC Mineralize Blush in Feeling Flushed (LE)
-Laura Mercier Setting Powder

-Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland Palette: Alice, Underland, Drink me eat me, White Rabbit, Jabberwocky
-Too Faced eyeshadow in Heaven
-Inglot AMC Gel Liner in 77 (black) and 76 (white)
-L'oreal Waterproof Carbon Black Mascara

-Lancome lipstick in Rose Tempest (D/C)

Props to you if you've been reading my blog long enough to know which two looks this one is similar too :)

You, too, can sit back and let your unconscious take over.

I'm being a dork, haha.  I'm very tired.

  1. I love the color combo! Great look :)

  2. This is pretty enough to do more than once, I really like it! Wish I could find my Alice in Wonderland palette... it's in a box somewhere :( Somewhere...

    I definitely find myself accidentally re-doing looks! It's nice to have a couple of tried and true go-to looks, though!
