FOTD: August 26, 2010 Playing Catch Up/Oh, PLUMS!

Since I'm still transitioning from comfortable neutral makeup looks, I'm still a bit intimidated by the idea of using colors for eye shadows. I started out my first year doing the same earth tones and then scolded myself for settling into something so routine so quickly after I had just started to delve into the world of creativity...

...so I went out and purchased a few plums/purples from MAC. [So bold, I know... haha.] Still, it gave me a completely different outlook and gave me confidence I could continue to branch out into other make up colors.

This also marked a landmark in the time of makeup for me: I grew past being too scared to apply false lashes on myself. It wasn't perfect, but I managed without gluing my eyelashes shut. =D

Eyes: MAC e/s: Fig.1 [or6?], Sketch, Beauty Marked, Carbon, Shroom, Kid, Texture. Stila e/s: Kitten.

Face: MUFE HD: 125 + MUFE duo matte: 205 [foundation], MAC Ripe Peach [blush], MAC By Candlelight [highlight], MAC Harmony [contour]

Sidenote: I apologize for the yellow quality in my photos. These were not edited, however the lighting in my bathroom is an awful old incandescent bulb with no windows for natural lighting. I promise to start using a nicer camera other than my camera phone. =D

Now to those actually willing to read through all of this, I'll put up a nice intro soon enough, so you don't feel like you're reading about a complete stranger. =)
