I'm officially in love with red lips! Up until about a month ago, I'd never wore lipstick! I'd always used a tinted lip gloss, or anything else I could use (such as eyeshadow) to give my lips a subtle color. I finally went out and actually bought lipstick! I have no idea what possessed me to do it, but I did it.
I got to go to town yesterday, which is a big deal to someone who spends their entire life out in the bush at work. I had lunch with my wonderful Uncle, and then did some quick shopping for everyone else out here. I only made it to London Drugs, and I spotted the new Burlesque Nail Polishes from OPI. I fell in love with the Purple sparkly one, its called.... Show it & Glow it (thanks to in InStyle Magazine for having the names in the OPI polishes in an add) I picked it up and then put it back (a first for me!) Because there is NO way I'm paying $17.99 for a bottle of nail polish! After that I figured I'd better vacate the make-up area before my will power went through the window!
Now anyone who knows me, knows I can't go into a store without buying something! I made plans with some guys I work with to take a trip this spring. We've decided on Thailand!! I'm pretty excited, so saving money is going to be a lot easier! All I need to think about is VACATION, and I'm pretty sure the money will be stuffed back in my pocket and the beautiful things returned to the shelves! I also mentioned this trip to my Aunt and Uncle yesterday and it sounds like they might be heading there with us! I think that would be great!! Anyways, enough about that, lets get on to my makeup!
So now that you all know I went to town, I couldn't go looking like a frump, which is why I decided on the bright lips! I had initially done a smokey eye, but for some reason it just wasn't working for me! I know its a little smoky, but it isn't exaclty what I was looking for. I ended up covering it with a yellow pigment called "Pineapple" from GOSH cosmetics. I think the base layer was MAC in Knighted. I wasn't thrilled with the way my eyeshadow turned out, but I was WAY too lazy to take it all of and start new! Regardless, I think I looked okay and nobody stared at me funny, so I guess that's a bonus! The only thing I had to constantly watch was lipstick on my teeth! For some reason, yesterday was a terrible day for that! But whatever I suppose, it's happened to all of us, so I'm not going to let it get me down! I will for sure be wearing something similar to this again!
Well, now that my post has been all over the place I think I'm going to just be quiet, add pictures and post! I hope you all have a lovely day!
