And now for something completely different... with red lips

Wow, you guys are amazing! I've never dreamed I will gain so much followers (80 new followers and counting). I feel like I've created a monster :D I must confess, I'm a bit intimidated by so many people reading my ramblings. Because of that I will try to make my posts more interesting (or at least, less boring).

I'm now in search for my first real job, so I wanted to experiment with job-interview-appropriate eyeshadow. I was always a bright-color-non-matte-eyeshadow girl, so this is a whole new area for me. Luckily, e.l.f. 100 eyeshadow palette has some great matte brown shades that I used for this look. Also, I was inspired by Camille Saroyan's (Tamara Taylor) make-up in "Bones". Btw. I love Bones. When I grow up, I want to be Brennan :)

This is a bit plain and boring eye make-up, so I paired it with red lips. I used e.l.f. lip liner in Bitter and Catrice absolute moisture lipstick in Burgundy.

Sadly, this is the only focused close-up of my lips and doesn't represent colors as they were.

This one is more true to reality, but it's cropped and unfocused.

In the future I will use my other camera which will give better results picture quality wise.

Thank you for reading :)
I plan to do a post about my birthday gifts, a rant about Fable 3 and post some more eotds and notds that I have on backlog.

Once again, thank you all for entering my giveaway. I'm really grateful for so many readers :)


By the way, have you seen this? I love Felicia Day and I can't wait for Dragon Age II to finally be released. I believe I will lock myself in my room with enough food and water to last several days, exiting only for potty breaks :D

Any Dragon Age fans out there? :)

  1. Lol@ the potty joke!
    I love Bones too and your make-up does look like Dr Soroyan's. This is the look I want. Okay, so you say the eyes are boring, but that would suit me to a 'T' :-p

  2. I agree with you, this is way too soft for me too, I use sparkly make up even as my every-day make up. But I loooove the lips! And I think that combination is fabulous!
    It's the first time I hear about Dragon Age though. Although it looks fantastic! I love dragons. :)

  3. krasan look, okice sasvim diskretne ali sve si nadoknadila s fantastičnim ružem :-D

    Well, it is true :D
    I finished Dragon Age:Origins in 6 days (50 hours of gameplay), so I hope I will do the same with the sequel :)
    Thank you, I wasn't sure I nailed Cam's look :)
    They are a bit boring, but I'm starting to like it :)

    I either use sparkly, shimmery, bright make-up or use none at all :D
    But this is cool, too. I feel all grown up while I'm wearing plain make-up and watching my cartoons ;D
    If you like RPGs and (although virtually) slaying dragons, you should definitely check DA:O out :)

    @nail crazy
