The Spring Blossom Look

Last Friday night I had a party for one at home and painted my face. There's nothing more I enjoy than staying inside on a damp and cold night. In fact, when I took these pictures with my SLR and a tripod I had my PJ pants on. The good thing about beauty looks is that you can be a mess below the waist and no one will know! (insert your joke here)

Granted, you can’t really wear this out but it sure looks like I’m waiting for my unicorn to come to take me to an enchanted field of wild flowers- I must have been listening to Taylor Swift when I was putting my face on.

The Too Faced Eyeshadow Primer from Apothica was used on this look. Unlike other primers I've tried from ELF and NYX, this one can last a good 6 hours without creasing. It's one of the items I wear everyday. The Too Faced primer is comparable to Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion if you are looking to try something different.

Items used, from Apothica:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eyeshadow Primer
Stila liquid eye liner (black)
Stila smudge stick waterproof liner (stingray)

Other items used:
Miss Rose Lasting Gloss Eyeshadow Palette
NYX round lipstick (Ulysses)
Dior Lip Maximizer
NYX blush (Pinky)

  26. You know what...I'm a nice person so I'm not going to lie. You actually look a lot more beautiful in your other previous pictures without as much makeup. That's a GOOD thing :) I love the red shade of lipstick you have on though and it really matches your top

    In my last post I wrote that a young man's fancy turned to baseball in the Spring. That was clearly wrong (and intended as a joke).

  39. You look like you really painted your face well! Is Too Faced really comparable to Urban Decay? I think I would try it after my UD finishes. BTW, thank you so much for the lovely package. I wasn’t expecting so many other goodies in the package. How sweet of you!

  47. Eyeshadow is quite lovely. I can't tell the difference between the Too Faced primer and the Urban Decay one. I have to say that the Too Faced a lot more hygienic though.
