Happy Thursday everyone, and of course, welcome back! Just like all of my makeup looks, or concepts rather, they change once I get down and dirty, and straight into the pigments. Surprisingly this look was supposed to be a soft autumn inspired smokey, but as a result of me giving the Smashbox Ablaze pallet one more try, it became a smoke show of molten-ness...if that even is a word. Be sure to check out that named review, because between you and I, not much as changed, the shadows remain difficult to blend. On another note, get your blending brushes ready and your favorite dark bitten berry lippie, because it's go time! This look was SO much fun to create, and it can be styled infinitely, depending on how creative you'd like to be. For example, the highlighter placement could be differently done, or perhaps you could play with textures and gloss up the lids!
Just as a reminder, be sure to click "going" on the Facebook event for my upcoming appearance on the ZodWrite show! Mark your calendars for April 11th!!! This is my second interview and first radio interview. I couldn't thank you cuties enough. Your constant support makes me glow with happiness, and I love you all XOXO! I shall do a separate blog post for this event, this way things don't get confused.
