My day to day makeup is pretty non-descript: neutral eyes, mascara, and lipstick when I can be bothered. I own some beautiful eyeshadows that I’ve never used because they are outside my comfort zone. I sat down with one of my recent purchases, the Lorac Pro Palette 2, which has quickly become a favorite, and forced myself to use colors that I’d normally leave untouched. I didn’t have a plan, and I didn’t know if I’d like the outcome.
There’s a good chance that my New Year’s Eve makeup will be the same as my work makeup this year. There’s been talk of a quick beer after work, then Indian takeout, so we can be in our PJ’s well ahead of the ball-drop. What can I say- we live a crazy life. This look is what I’d do if we were going out- heavier and sparklier than my every day, but still soft enough I don’t scare myself.
I love being obsessed with things. I love listening to the same song 100 times. I love wanting to do nothing but read until I’ve reached the last page. You know those feelings, right? Well, here are a few things that did that to me this week:
I’m pretty much a ‘buy it when I need it’ girl. Usually, I have a few wish list items that hang around, but mostly I buy what I need when I need it. That being said, these days there are few things I really need. For the ‘things I want’ category, I kept my eyes peeled for Cyber Monday deals to take the best advantage of special offers. My most recent purchases are a mix of ‘things I need’ and ‘things I want’.
