Last weekend was a bit of a blur for me, not because I was busy but literally a blur because my eyes were so irritated and red. Nobody to blame but me since it all started with the mascara/eye makeup that I was too lazy to take off before taking a quick nap. Long story short, my eyes are just about barely normal now, and my makeup routine for the day consists of washing my face and a moisturizer. So, this isn't a "today's makeup" but photos that I couldn't use in another post. I have a whole lot of Urban Decay eyeliner pencils, many of which I haven't used even once, so I decided to incorporate those in the look (giving my usual Perversion a skip) and Chanel Rouge Allure in Secrete - another of my hardly ever used lipsticks. Scroll on for more photos and swatches
I used Urban Decay eyeliner in Stash (dark olive) along the lashline, smudged it with NARS eyeshadow in Tokyo (matte lavender), ending up with a greyish lavender shade. Used NARS Pandora eyeshadow to line along the lashline and UD Demolition along the waterline. On my lips, I used Chanel Rouge Allure in Secrete topped with Chanel glossimer in Wild Rose. The Burberry blush I forgot to swatch is a darker pinkish blush that is very oddly named "coral pink" since I really haven't seen any coral in it so far. I loved the combination of colors, and because of the layering (long-wear pencil and shadow, gloss and lipstick) the makeup also lasts much longer. Definitely an easy everyday look.
