I'm actually quite ashamed to say that I took these photos almost 2 months ago and haven't had time to post them since. I'm a bit of a traveller these days, posting whenever I can squeeze in an hour of me-time, so you'll have to excuse the delay. Anyways, I realized this was probably subliminally inspired by NARS Summer 2011 collection, and I think it's still up to date in this sunny July weather.
To be completely honest, it took me a good while to apply these Ardell flares of false eyelashes... I find strip falsies much easier to apply. What is your take on flares vs full strips?
I wanted to play a bit more with my Manly 120 eyeshadow palette, and I think the shades turned out very vibrant, rather fabulous if I dare say so myself. You can check the palette out in more detail in this post. I also lined the waterline with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on pencil in Electric. The base is Graftobian HD Glamour Creme and for the blusher, I went with La Femme Pink Velvet.
I had this weird swollen upper lip thanks to a rather nasty canker sore, and to anyone struggling with one, I do recommend taking a Vitamin B supplement, it really did help mine. Lipstick is MAC Jest, sadly discontinued.
I had lots of fun doing the look, but I would still be very hesitant to rock that blue eyeshadow anywhere else other than my living room. Do you ever wear blue shades on your eyes and if so, how do you wear them?
