Make Up Misfits - Cobalt Makeover

Heya,

300+ followers! *Glee
I forgot to mention if you guys liked the new layout?
I might keep this one for a good while.

Yesterday, I wanted to do a look for my portfolio and used one of my besties.
It was her first time using lashes and I loved it on her (she, not so much lol).
I used MAC Reflects Glitter on her as well but it's difficult to capture on film but oh em gee was it a gorgeous addition and really added a nice element to her look overall.

Eyes [all MAC]:
Paint Pot in Painterly (base)
Vex (highlight)
Cobalt (crease/lower lid)
Deep Blue Green Pigment (lower lid/outer v)
Yogurt + Hoppin' (lid)
Espresso (filled in eyebrows)
Smolder Eye Kohl (waterline)
Misc. Eyelashes
Reflects Purple Glitter (all over crease)

Thank you so much for the lovely responses and well thoughts on my last post.
To keep things simple, sweet and short - me and him are back together.
After a very long, thoughtful conversation (no yelling, just us expressing our inner feelings) he concluded that he made a huge mistake by trying to end it. I'm happy we were both mature about the whole thing throughout and he's very apologetic about everything.

Thank you again everyone.
I'm back to blogging now on more positive things.
I'm getting things lined up to review and do looks on.

  2. Looks gorgeous! You always do the most awesome purple looks. I think the falsies look great, but then I wear them almost every day so I guess I'm desensitized to them.

    Great that you two talked it over and are back together :).

  5. First let me say Im usually not into make up blogs but yours is nice, and down to earth, and most importantly you look lovely. I have some questions, and hopefully that are not redundant. Im a medium skinned black girl, who hardly wears foundation or concealer because they always look cake like. What do you suggest? In addition I have oily skin and find that when I atempt the foundation its all shiny and greasy looking after 2 hrs. Any suggestions or answers would be appreciated. Thanks!!

  7. @Arezu - freelancing - it's on pause, lol. I'm not actively pursuing it right now. I will once school/work starts up.

    @Nieci - thank you so much, means loads to hear that! I would suggest starting with a tinted moisturizer if you don't need a lot of coverage. For a brand, I'd suggest Make Up forever and maybe trying out their HD foundation and primers. I liked it a lot. For drugstore brand, can't go wrong with Revlon. I use their colorstay line and it works well for me. They carry a face primer too but I never used it.
    Carrying around a blot powder/paper would help control shine and keep from your face melting off too lol.
