Arabic-looking liner

I didn't really know where I was going with this but I think it ended up being quite Arabic-makeup-like :)
When I was done, I realized that I might have been inspired by this look by the lovely Queen of Blending as well.

Monochromatic greens

I've definitely started wearing more bright colors again(yay!), but my next project is getting in to fun color combos again as well.
This is really just simple and... Green ;)

Hyperreal look

Anyone remember MAC's Hyperreal foundation? They discontinued it soooo long ago, but mine is still doing fine and I quite like using it in the summer :)

This is a type of look that I've been doing a lot lately - simple skin and eyes and bright lips.

Ahh, color blocking. It's such a simple and easy way to wear bold colors.

And I think I just remembered my favorite way to wear gold: with bright colors.

5 minute makeup: Eyeliner

What's your go-to look when you have to do your makeup in a hurry?

I usually just do my skin and pop on a bright lipstick, but I'm trying to get back into doing fun eye makeup.
Also, I really wanted to use the pearlglide eyeliners that I finally got.

I don't seem to get along with gold eyeshadow very well.
Not that it looks horrible on me, but I just seem to find it rather boring once I put it on - even if it's an awesome color like Goldilux, and even if that awesome color is applied on top of Pixie Epoxy, which makes it even more awesome. Yeah, a whole lot of awesomeness turned into "mehh" once the look is done.

What's your favorite way to wear gold eyeshadow?
And do you ever feel like there are other colors that look more amazing by themselves than they do in a finished look?

Blogging, how I've missed thee!

I'd like to start with a statement: I love blogging.

And now that my exams are over, and I'm looking to spend my time doing exactly what I want instead of thinking about deadlines and grades all the time, I might actually have some time for the blogging world again!

I want blogging to be fun!

I don't really make money off of it and my blog isn't nearly as professional looking as so many others out there. But I love it anyway. Blogging is a source of inspiration to me, and I'd like to keep it going. I hate thinking back at the past year and realizing that I haven't done nearly as much makeup as I'd have liked and definitely haven't posted as much either.

However, since I can't change that, I'll try my best to keep up with the blog for the summer - and hopefully long after that as well, but let's face it - I shouldn't promise anything. I hate starting every post with "sorry I haven't posted, but I've been busy" and lame excuses like that.


the point of this post really wasn't to ramble on and on, but to share some random FOTDs I've done the past couple of months but never got around to posting.

I'm not entirely sure what I used in them, but I figured it was something to share :)
