I am inspired to type out this entry because I went to a wedding today, and I did my own makeup. I seldom wear eyeshadow (concealer-and-lipstick type of girl here), so I had to put in a bit of effort for this one.
(And good thing no one said anything about it at the wedding...)
Prepping the eye area involved a touch of Urban Decay's Primer Potion and Skinfood's Salmon Darkcircle concealer. All my eyeshadows are Ellana Multipurpose Mineral Powders. Patting motions were used to put Inspiration (golden beige frost) on the lid, while I worked Delicate (taupe brown frost) into the outer V and crease. Honeybunch (pale brownish peach frost) went on the browbone, and Confess (pale rose frost) into the inner corners of the eyes. These were all done using a variety of makeup brushes, both full and travel-sized, from Charm.
I lined my eyes with Maybelline gel liner in brown & used a matte brown eyeshadow from a GWP Lancome palette to set it. Lastly, I used Maybelline's Cat Eyes mascara for my lashes. I tried using a mascara guard from Etude House, but it takes some getting used to! Also, my brows are bare in the picture, but on the way to the church I used In2it's brow kit.
As for the rest of my face:
Aaand that's it. If any of the products I've used (including the brushes) have caught your fancy and you'd like to know more about it, drop me a line in the comments! I have so many drafts of reviews, I'm just not sure where to start. Your feedback would be really helpful. :)
