vintage gold smoky eye

You know, I didn’t realize it when I posted yesterday, but that last look was my 100th post!  I think we can officially say I have too much time on my hands.

Case in point.  I heard rumors about Sephora offering a discount to beauty insiders on their email list… And started thinking about what I wanted to get(I’ve been so GOOD about not buying new stuff lately!)  And that led to thinking about last seasons lipsticks-the rich plums and reds.  I lvoe those colors that were in between, not especially glossy.  There is something about that color I LOVE(which is a large part of why I bought MACs Party Line.) I tried to replicate it with a few colors I own.

Just in case you’re staring at the illustrations saying “WTF is in the background?!”  Its my bathtub.  I found the best indoor lighting i can get is with all the lights on, sitting in the bathtub so they don’t shine DOWN on me, with my arm angled up, on the side away from the light taking the picture.  Even so, there’s still a few shots with camera shadows. I’m sorry.
