The fun in beauty is all about experimentation and that’s what today’s look is all about! Here’s a simple smokey eye, using a very cool and metallic-finish color scheme, framed by a dark yet skinny eyebrow to keep things sharp, and paired with a soft plum wash of color on the lip. I would tell you what I’m using but I honestly have no idea what the shade names are… I only know I used 3 shadows in an 8 shadow palette by Sephora, and the colors were a light silver, a pewter-y dark silver, and straight black with some chunky silver. It’s nothing you couldn’t find in stores and probably already in many of y’all’s make up bags already, right girls? 😉
I’m still faced with the challenge of my damn eyelids. When I put on the eyeshadow, it definitely looks stronger and bolder than it does now, but in the photo of me looking straight ahead, it appears that I barely have any shadow above my lashes! While I’m still pleased with the result, I will have to work on making dark eyeshadows look more prominent yet not overwhelming on me. Oh well, make up is all for fun anyway! I’ll try again next time.
My hair is also an experimentation today. I have to tell you, I’ve been really getting into Game of Thrones and I’m not sure if this is good or bad, but I will tell you there is hair inspiration A PLENTY on that show! The hair is INCREDIBLE – I mean, braid game GALORE. Even if you don’t watch the show, a few images of the female characters on the show is enough to show you just how pretty, intricate and romantic some of the ‘dos are. The one above is inspired by a very evil character who happens to have impeccable hair game, which I’ll call the double twist (double french twist to be more exact), and they’re simply two twists that meet and become one twist at the back of the head. I wasn’t really sure what I was doing but I wanted to try out a center part (clearly it wasn’t entirely successful as mine is off center, but my part is so set in it’s deep side ways *pun intended!!!*). Here, my hair is in its normal state after a wash the night before, somewhere between wavy and straight. Here it is from the side! Yay or nay?
That’s all for today, folks! Enjoy the week and stay fabulous as always.
