Here it is, part two. This week was a lot better than the last so I have a little bit more to give to you. Wednesday was really a whirlwind. I had a stressful Physics lab experience… I hate to sound this way, but I hate working with people who don’t understand the material on the same level as me. The point of the labs is for you to barely finish or not at all so it is just hard to have to wait for someone else to catch on. Geez, that sounds really terrible of me. I just really like Physics and take it very seriously. Enough of this school talk.
I also went to a social, my first of the year, and had the most mortifying experience of my life at my favorite restaurant, AKA McDonalds, with a random drunk guy. The theme was Mardis Gras which I was extremely appreciative of. I hate going out but I love dressing up. This theme allowed me to get creative, with my outfit and makeup! Surprisingly, I have no purple or gold in my closet. I had two green items and that is what I used to try and create my possibilities.
I had a hard time deciding between these two options but my following (LOL) unanimously picked the second picture. I do not know why I thought I could get a picture of my makeup AFTER I went out. Yet, here I am at 2:30 am.
Look, it looks good still but it definitely looked better before I was in a hot space for 4 hours. I did purple and gold shadows on the top lid and green on the bottom. I went for gold and purple highlighter and purple lipstick. I love having a reason to be extra. For a look at my put together look, check out my Instagram. The link is somewhere on this page LOL.
Saturday I participated in a dance Philanthropy called Sigma Chi Derby Days. Unfortunately, we didn’t place but it was we looked good and had fun. After, the team went out for drinks (not for 20 y/o me, obvi) and dinner so I got to dress up again.
Top, bottom, and shoes all from Forever 21.
Now for my continuation of last week:
Eyes: My one fault is eyeliner. I wish I could perfect the wing but I don’t think there are enough hours in my life for that. In middle school, I was really into colored eyeliner. For Christmas, I used to ask for the like 30 pack of Urban Decay Eyeliners. Now, I stick with fun eyeshadow shades and a nice highlight under my brow and in the inner crease of my eye.
Eyeshadow: Colourpop has been my recent go-to for all eyeshadow. They have such great pigmentation and are SOOO cheap. I have two of their palettes right now: Dream St. Pressed Powder Palette and I Think I Love You Pressed Powder Palette. The next product I buy will be their Super Nova Shadows which is basically liquid lipstick for your eyes. For Christmas, I got the Fenty Galaxy Eyeshadow Palette and the colors are so fun. I think the shadows could be a little more pigmented but maybe it’s just me because on the Fenty Instagram page they make them look amazing.
Mascara: Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. That’s all I have to say.
Eyebrow: If I’m going out, I like to fill in my eyebrows with a dark brown shade I have from a random old palette and top it off with the Benefit gel. Otherwise, for my day to day life, I just use the Benefit 3D BROWtones Enhancer. It keeps all my hairs and place and keeps my brows pretty natural looking.
Lipstick is the one thing you can put on and it instantly changes everything about you and your day. My top top favorites right now are the Fenty Stunna Lip Paint — Glossier Generation G and Lip Gloss. The Fenty Lip Paint is red but I swear it looks good on every skin tone. I literally make all of my friends try it on and still have not found the person I was like “Naw dawg, that’s a no from me”. AND the wand is shaped very differently from a normal liquid lipstick but I think it helps make the application process so much easier and smoother.
Now, if Fenty is that hot, trendy, and carefree friend, Glossier is the boho chic, trendy, and classic friend. The Generation G is sheer, but buildable, and is super moisturizing. It is great to have in your backpack to liven up your lips with a little color but also keep them healthy. And the Lip Gloss is the LOML. I feel so 90s/early 2000s with how shiny my lips are. I love it and it’s only slightly sticky.
I just got some new Colourpop lipsticks and highlighters in the mail from their huge sale. This was also right around the time the Pantone Color of the Year came out and I dig Ultraviolet which perhaps influenced my purchases. It took forever to get them but they are so beautiful and totally worth it.
