New Combos =)

So I was looking through the few shadows that I brought with me home and decided to do some layering!

So I LOVE woodwinked but tend to do warm colors in the winter and cooler colors in the summer. I know weird, I just like being contrary. Anywho's I brought it along because I [i]always[/i] bring it along just in case.

This fotd is the result:

To do this:
I put woodwinked all over the lid up to my "crease". I lightly blended the edges. Then patted circa plum pigment over the outer 2/3. Next I blended out the edges to my satisfaction with neutral pink. Then to deepen the outer corner/crease slight I mixed beauty marked with a little bit of neutral pink and blended in with a blending brush. I used a little bit of Naked pigment as highlight. To do my blue "pop" of color and to make my eyes appear whiter, I closely lined my lower lashline with black gel liner, over which I smudged Deep truth. I also lined my upper lashline with beauty marked smudged in to make it less dramatic. Curled lashes and a coat of Voluminous and BAM! cool new eye look =) least it's new for me.

So that look has actually been the most dramatic look I've done in a while. Lately, I've been really into using neutral pink all over my crease with something dark smudged onto my lashline. OR I go (almost) bare! Sans makeup =) It's been raining almost every day for several weeks! The humidity just isn't makeup friendly so I've been cutting back a lot and sitting around much more comfortable and not paranoid about mascara or eyeliner smudging at random points in the day.

Con of not using much makeup: Not getting any closer to using up old makeup!

But oh well.....

So my next school term starts on the 31st and I'm uber excited. This is my third year as a Chemistry undergrad and I feel like I FINALLY get to the super cool (albeit more difficult) classes! I'm taking Physical Chemistry and Advance Lab 1 (Organic) with several literature/cultural classes. Can you tell I'm a dork that I'm excited about new hard classes? =)

Getting in touch with my masculine side....

So I went out to first Friday with a few friends in the city, however they failed to mention it was a popular outing. Here I was wearing a tennis skort and a men's tee-shirt without a lick of makeup! Long story short, I was the "butch" one of the night.

The next night I was playing around with makeup when I remember this one post on this awesome girl's blog where she looked at once extremely feminine but yet masculine and so I experimented and slapped on tons of bronzer to contour and came up with this:

While kind of fun and interesting looking in the mirror was kind of freaky since all I recognized of myself was my hair!

Update on Project 10 Pan

I'm almost done with my first MAC lipstick in Jubilee. While I'm really sad it's almost 3/4 gone I'm really happy that I'm finishing a product (especially one that ran me $15).

I'm also almost out of my Lash Perfection mascara. I think this is the first time I've used up a mascara rather than throwing it out because it went bad!

My too faced shadow insurance is starting to run frighteningly low too after having it for almost a year! I'm on the fence about whether i really need to buy another one of these though because I rarely use it since I have dry monolids and don't have to worry about creasing.

I'm also absolutely determined to use up one thing of eyeliner before long! I just have too many and I want to try out my new clinique gel liner really bad.
