"Can Do This With My Eyes Closed" Go To Glam Look | Makeup Play


FIRST, please excuse the background. After I took these pictures I couldn't believe how ugly it was from the clothes on the floor next to the mirror in addition to the pillows on the floor. Why is everything on the floor? Please be patient with me while I come up with a new and prettier background.

Obviously this is a glam look but you can't really get the "feel" of it because 1.) it's daylight, and 2.) I would not be able to get the sultry & sexy feel without any awesome filters and that is the #1 no-no in any of the photos on my blog: photoshop.


Anyway, I had posted a blurry and ugly version of these photos a couple posts back HERE. Towards the end of the post I expressed that I should do a clearer version of the look just in case someone was interested.

I have a deep love affair with the Naked 1 Palette because of how wearable the shades are and how it goes so well with my skin tone. I have always been such a sucker for bronzes and golds -- maybe it's because I've always been trying to achieve (but never even have come close to) the "J-Lo Glow." I like looking like I spent time in the Bahamas even though I'm scared shitless of the sun (that's another story).

So guys, let's talk about the uneveness of my lashes going on in this picture. Other than having hooded eyes, I ALSO have uneven eyelids, so the right side is smaller and also folds down a little bit more. It's been difficult for me to do makeup looks, wear false eyelashes AND have it even all the time while struggling not to rub my eyes out and do it all over again. More importantly through all that mess I just said fuck this, you have to love what you got. I had the choice to stress myself out by making sure everything was completely even or enjoying the process of getting ready and playing with colors and makeup. I chose the latter.

Until Next Time! :)
