Makeup, that is. Ok, here’s the thing. I do the bare-face thing. Or what appears to be bare-face. The boyfriend loves it and tells me natural is beautiful. He frowns at foundation. But my dark circles, I complain. No, he says, your bare skin has a glow. welllll…. that’s nice. I like it too but sometimes I get kind of bored.
So every once in a while, I will do a dark, dramatic eye and leave the rest of my face bare. I’m Asian, so the whole eyeshadow thing can be a bit tricky. It starts to look a little connie chung or afternoon catfight between krystle and alexis carrington.
So, I found that using one bright or neutral color and lots of white can make it look just right. I like peacock colors (teal, blue) when I feel a need to flash but most of the time it’s just blush, mascara and a bit of nars peach lip. And lately I’ve been thinking about pink eyeshadow. I always thought it would make me look like I was having an allergy attack but maybe I should give it a whirl. Especially since the looks below are so pretty…
