hello all!
so much for the subtle looks- today I felt quite playful. Thus, i went with one of my favorite bold looks! Applying this look today made me even MORE anxious for my brushes, because though blending with my finger is fine, I could achieve a much more refined look with brushes :/ oh well!

* i can't get over how it doesn't look the same here as it does in real life :/ humph. Also, this was taken pre-eyeliner

*both eyes, obvi

* look when eyes are open!

Behold! my feisty little number. I don't wear this look (or any bright shades, for that matter) quite as often as I used to, due to the fact that I feel it makes me look younger... and seeing as how i usually have my 2 month daughter in tow with me- i don't want to look 16. I never really gave a damn what people thought about me until I became a mother. I'm still not so sure why I care if they think i look 16 or my actual age.... i guess because they're not just judging my person anymore, but judging what kind of mother I am? I don't know. It's dumb, i know :/ But ANYWAY, this look is a lot of fun and something I may just say 'to hell with it', and wear it more often again :)

 & Just for kicks, picture of said daughter!
She's just started smiling :)


(all Urban Decay)
* Vanilla, Graffiti, Peace, Blackout

'Vanilla' & 'Blackout', as i've stated before, are in the 15th Anniversary palette and i'm pretty sure they aren't sold separately. However, UD does sell a very similar black, 'Zero' that you could use instead. 'Graffiti' and 'Peace' can both be found in the Deluxe Shadow Box, and- good news!- are sold separately here for $18 bucks a pop!

Any feedback is welcome :D
Thanks for reading!


  1. PRETTY. Your posts have really been making me want to get back into doing crazy eyeshadow again. Perhaps after my exams I'll start playing around with my palettes some, too. :D

  2. I love this look! It adds some color but it's not too crazy. Your daughter is adorable as well =)
