Fall is here EOTD

So up until now, my blog has mainly been on life, spiritual matters and that sorta stuff. Today I'm gonna do my first strictly makeup post. This may or may not tickle your fancy, but if you know me, you know my fancy is quite tickled when it comes to anything pretty!

Here's a look I came up with to try to perk myself up after a too long stint of sinus infection. I know it's fall but that doesn't mean we have to tuck away the bright colors, right?! It also worked out that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month (pink) as well as Depression awareness month (green) and this look suits both :) Here's a pic I used for inspiration.

I started with Urban Decay Primer Potion and then applied NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Milk to help the colors really pop. The colors I used were Psyche Mineral Suezo, Dawn Eyes Sunny Side Up, Shiro Thinking with Portals, Wheeeeeee! and Still Alive; Madd Style X-ray Spex and Ecto-Cooler, and Urban Decay Naked. A bit of Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy turned Still Alive and Ecto Cooler into a liner :)
So here's what I came up with, and yes I wore this out in public! You can still kinda see in my eyes that I'm not fully over this sinus thing, but dang it I was sick and tired of looking AND being sick and tired. Oh yeah, and excuse the clump in my bottom lashes, I fixed it before I went to the store LOL!

Well I can't say it made me physically feel any better, but getting myself all purdied up does wonders for my spirits. So what do you think? Like it, hate it, could really care less about my makeup obsession? Feel free to put in your $0.02, I can always use a little change!!


  1. Yay, so pretty! Love the liner! Congrats on the makeup post. lol

  2. WOW!!! You managed to pack gorgeous and complex colors and shading all together with serious skill! I am mega impressed. And you KNOW I love/share the makeup obsession. Can't wait to see more!

  3. Thank you so much! I always have fun playing with my makeup, just never felt confident enough to share with the world I guess.

  4. Yes, putting on makeup can really lift ones spirits! Great fall look! Love the colors and the green liner!

  5. What a great colour combination! I love bright looks!
