A few things:
- It’s Saturday morning, and I’m wearing the same pajamas I put on Thursday night.
- My head feels like it’s being squished in a vice (yes, I’m still a walking germ factory).
- I haven’t washed my hair in three (four?) days.
But thanks to the healing power of makeup, I can pretend I briefly look like I’m a somewhat functioning adult, LOL!
This 10-minute makeup look was 1) to help myself feel better, and 2) for Sheena (yay for the Bay, girl, woo-hoo!), who liked the NUDESTIX Intense Lip + Cheek Pencil in Purity post earlier this week but wanted to see me use a darker color from the line.
This time I used warm red , and I used it as both a blush and a sheer lip color. And then I also did a smudgy, bronze-y black cat eye.
Everything I used is listed below, and if you have any questions, you know where to find me (hints: it involves Netflix, a laptop and my couch).
One note about the skin. I used a very sheer liquid skin tint to even everything out just a touch, then boosted the coverage on my cheeks with a loose foundation. This is a very cool shortcut I like to do when I’m pressed for time/have very little patience.
Also, because I went into this look planning to only spend 10 minutes on it, and because the pencil was an opaque bright red, I opted for the sheer lip stain because I figured I’d be able to fudge the edge of the lip line (which I did).
