Blue Eyeshadow: 2 Ways + Outfits + Wedding Stuff...

I know, I know. I haven't been around. I honestly haven't had much to post as I've been super lazy this week and not really rocking any makeup. I'm making up for it now as I have a ton of stuff to post.

First up, I did two blue eyeshadow looks this weekend. The first is a stronger cut crease look, mostly inspired by Jonna from Nukleopatra (clicky! That's her blog). I love her makeup style so when I looked at the dress I was going to wear, I knew what I wanted to do.

I wore this out to Rob's birthday dinner (outfit to be shown after the FOTD). We were in a bit of a hurry as we had reservations, and so I didn't get many good shots of this. It was hard to photograph anyway. I think I should have used more of a matte navy blue in the crease.

Blehhh. The pics are terrible :(

- CoverGirl Tinted Moisturizer - fair to light
- Mac Prism (contour)
- Mac Stereo Rose
- Mac Select Moisturecover NW20
- Mac Studio Finish concealer, NW20

- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- Urban Decay Virgin eyeshadow
- Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow
- Urban Decay Buck eyeshadow
- Darker matte skin tone from Sleek Bohemian palette
- NYX Iced Mocha eyeshadow
- Matte navy blue from Bohemian
- Sparkly dark blue from Sleek Circus
- Maybelline The Falsies mascara
- Matte black from Sleek Circus (as liner)

- Viva Glam Gaga lipstick
- NYX Chestnut lipgloss

I did like my outfit though! You may recall the pic I posted of this dress a while ago... I wore that, with a cardigan you may recognize, and black flats. I'm skipping on showing the flats as they are literally just black, lol. I would normally wear heels out but I knew we'd be traipsing around downtown after dinner.

The cardi is from Wet Seal, the dress is Forever 21 and the necklace I got from The Icing (even though it's crooked in the photos lmao!). I found it last minute as I had nothing to go with the dress... and I love it! It's doubled up and normally lays long (to my ribs)

Next up is a look from today. I did another blue look as I was wearing a new top and a denim skirt... I thought it would look good. I was going out with my parents for Rob's birthday, but it was still daylight so I added some glitter to help convert it to a night time look as well.

- Mac Studio Fix powder
- Mac Prism blush (contour)
- Hard Candy Living Doll blush
- Mac Select Moisturecover NW20
- Mac Studio Finish concealer, NW20

- Too Faced Shadow Insurance
- Urban Decay Aquarius eyeshadow
- Mac Steamy eyeshadow
- Barry M Aqua Gold dazzledust
- Metallic blue mixed with metallic purple from Sleek Circus (crease)
- Ulta Olive eyeliner
- Urban Decay Distortion glitter liner
- Maybelline The Falsies mascara

- NYX Indian Pink lipstick
- Milani gloss in Movie Star (the blue sparkly one)

I am definitely having coverage issues with both Aquarius and Steamy. These photos were taken after dinner but only 2 hours after application and I already have some creasing :(

Oh and the new top I got from Charlotte Russe... I love the neckline!

That's pretty much it for the FOTDs. I do have two quick outfit photos, apparently the theme of this week was belts:

I'm wearing pants... they're cute in person, I promise. The top on this is really cute, wish I could have gotten better pictures... it's got little zippers down the sleeves!

I cut out my face because I was doing a ridiculous grin in an attempt to be cool. It wasn't :D. I wore this to work with dress pants instead and changed to run a few errands when I got home.

To change the subject again, more wedding stuff! The rings:

My engagement ring is the one towards the tip of my finger. It was so hard to find a band to go with it but we finally did! I love it.

And for those of you who wanted to see our vows... I'm posting pics, you'll have to blow them up to read them:

The only part cut off is the "Now celebrate your life with a kiss" bit. It was on a 4th page and I was literally about to murder my scanner... so I decided it best to just type it in, lol! We admittedly did not write every word of our vows... our celebrant was fantastic and interviewed us, and gave us a basic skeleton that she felt was appropriate (the whole "in this great sea of life" thing is all her). We however did write the declaration of intent ("do you willingly embrace...") and the actual vows ("... this is my solemn vow") and we of course chose the song lyrics.

We are proud of them... hey, they made my parents and two best friends cry :D

Finally, and last but not least, I hit 200 followers! Yaaaaay! Thank you so much to all who have followed me, and welcome to my newer followers :)
