FOTD/OOTD: Shocking

I've been experimenting with different ways to make my eyeshadow last with all of the issues I've been having with creasing and fading. I've found that a really good method is the MUA Primer that Robyn sent me with a Maybelline Color Tattoo over the top, and then a powder eyeshadow heavily buffed into the Color Tattoo. That seems to be working for me right now. This eye look is one that I've done a lot recently.

I also used the Real Techniques foundation buffer today with my foundation and it is AMAZING. End of. Totally impressed.

- L'Oreal Magic Lumi Primer
- MUFE HD Foundation in #21
- Mac MSF Natural in Light
 - Maybelline SuperStay Concealer in Light
- Boots No 7 Vital Enlightening Powder (on eyes as highlight, too)
-NYC Sun 'n Bronze Bronzing powder (blush)

- MUA Professional Eye Primer
-Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe
- L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Amber Rush
- Rimmel Spark It Up eyeliner in Peridot (upper lashline)
- NYX eyeliner in Teal (lower lashline/waterline)
- Mac eyeshadow in Aquadisiac (lower lashline)
- Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara

- MUA Plumping Lip Gloss in Shocking Pink

It's so dreary outside today so I wanted to wear something bright and fun. I had a picture of my nails as well but my cuticles are looking too ragged for macro at the minute.

Top - Forever21
Belt - Primark
Skirt - The Limited
Shoes - Burlington Coat Factory
Nails - Color Club Blue-Ming


  1. I was like "WTF IS THAT LIP"... I already has it :D This is gorgeous and YAY for no creasing! And the skirt... I die.

  2. LOVE that skirt on you my goodness :)

  3. You are one of the few people who can truly pull off retro-inspired outfits, as I must admit, the skirt just screams RETRO BEAUTY to me! Fashion from a different era, made modern by you in your choice of colors and prints!

  4. I really like that teal eyeliner on you! Cute skirt! I've been enjoying yellow lately and trying to add some to my wardrobe for the spring, it was a colour that I used to shy away from.
