Flashing Angles | Makeup Play


Haven't posted a FOTD (Face of The Day)/FOTN (Face of The Night) in a while so I thought I'd start the new year with one...


Lately this has been the look that I've been going for when I'm in a rush and I don't have time to really think about what to wear. It's the kind of makeup that can go with any outfit + added bonus you can pop a lip color from the blackest black to the palest pale and it won't interfere or make people confused (unless you want them to, of course).



I also wanted to show case how my usual wing liner looks on my type of eye, mainly because they're very hooded and I've realized the thicker the line - the smaller my eyes will look. I literally just draw a small line to resemble the flick then drag it down the opposite side towards the lid... I'll make another blog post on step by step deets at a later time. 

TIP: (Since these photos have flash on) Always try to use the "Flash Test" whenever you're done with your makeup to make sure there's no flash back and that your skin, neck and body all have the same color. The best way to assure that is to use a foundation with NO SPF.
