I think I really need to start naming these types of posts "Face Of The Other Day" because I never get around to actually posting the pics on the right day! I haven't done one of these in ages so I thought I'd quickly post this for you.
Please excuse the powdery finish on my face, I had literally just finished doing my makeup and was in a rush to get out the door (ended up changing my top as well) so it hadn't yet settled in.
Notice I tried to put on eyeshadow that day lol. I must be the only beauty blogger out there who doesn't wear eyeshadow. To be honest, I was never really into it and I don't actually know how to apply it especially where I have hooded eyelids. I usually just dust bronzer over my eyelids lol. Since I bought eyeshadow at IMATS (a topic I still need to post about), I thought I'd give it a try. As you can see it had started creasing slightly already. I actually need your help! Does anyone have tips on eyeshadow for beginners? I would love to see your post on it. I'm open to suggestions so please help a girl out!
During Spring/Summer, I become obsessed with corals and peach tones. Literally everything I pick up will be in the same shade whether it be nail polish or a blouse. I think it's such a pretty colour for the season and very girly. They're the sort of shades I believe people of all tones can find to suit their skin. For my darker ladies, please try these shades, they complement our skin tone so well! Think of Ariane Davis from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta (if you watch it), do you know how good these shades look on her?!
