Somewhere along the way, my week turned into my weekend and just like that I was making a list of things to do. It looked something like this.
I know, impressive. Right?
I finished up the paint late Friday night, I gotta admit. It turned out nice. I loved the yellow- but it was time for a change. Really I needed something to brighten it up, I definitely have bright now.
I mowed most of the day yesterday, and had a late lunch with Philip. We drove down to the Marina and walked around a bit, for the first day of Fall… it sure was hot.
This morning I worked on my clothes for the week and went to the Dollar General for Little’s poster board, of course while I was in there, I was looking for new makeup or a cool nail polish to rock this week. Well, I found one I liked and was shaking it up to get a better idea of the shade… and this happened.
Whew. If you could have seen the lack of happiness on my face right at this moment. The freaking top came off in my hand and the polish went flying and of course the DG has concrete floors now so. The topless bottle would have been bad enough, but ohhh nooooo. The damn bottle shattered. Anyway, I had nail polish from toe up and was not impressed. I thought I had ruined my jeans, and my shoes had nail polish all over them. I had to walk to find someone to come and help me, so there’s was a nailpolish trail to the nearest associate, that sucked. Ugh. Luckily, I only had a few spots on the cuff part of my jeans, and I cleaned up my t straps with nail polish remover and left them outside to air out. I hope the sweet lady working at the DG was able to get it off of the floor. Double ugh.
Anyway, I used The Wants palette from The Emily Edit and wanted to show you this super Fall look I came up with today.
I started out with a Cheer and placed it just over my natural crease. I have super hooded eyes, so doing just the teeniest curve of shadow above my crease, lets just a little of that shade peek thru when my eyes are open. I like that. From there, I placed Dues Paid into my real crease and blended it out. Then on a smaller, yet still fluffy brush, I put a small amount of Pi Phi in the outer part of my crease. I packed this shadow along with Family on the outer half of my lid. I used a flat brush to pack Top Story on the inner half. I highlighted my brow bone and inner corner with The Cream, and moved on to my lower lash line. I smoked Pi Phi along my lower lash line and went in a little tighter and closer to my actual lashes with Family. I finished my look with mascara and tadaaaaaaa.
This is less liner and more gloss. It’s kinda hard to manage worn like this. But the shade is beautiful.
Instant Fall feels.
Mini Review: I have really been enjoying The Emily Edit palettes. I find myself reaching for them during the week when I don’t really have a lot of time to be experimental. That says a lot. The shadows are creamy and blendable, and you don’t have to wear a primer to make the shades last, or pop. I do my makeup really early in the morning, sometimes around 6, sometimes around 5, and when I get home in the evenings, I can still see shadow. Consistently. With primer or not. I can get a range of looks from one palette and have a finished look without grabbing for something else and that makes me happy too.
In other news: Before I busted the nail polish all over the floor and had a mean face moment, I picked up this little guy from the L A Colors display. It’s a pretty one, I might have to practice keeping it in the lines, but damn. It was only $2.00! Look at THAT!
This is with more liner and less gloss. I like it the best worn like this.
LA Colors, Metal to the Max Metallic Lip Gloss in the shade Brilliant and I lined my lips with Wet nWild Gel Lip Liner in Gone Burgundy. (Yes. I went back and got 3 more.) Whew, girl. Can’t get more Fall than that.
Have you guys tried any of these lip glosses? Are there other shades I can’t live without?
