Back Home Look of the Day

So, in case you didn't notice, I was out of town much of last week.  I was staying with my parents while my sister was visiting from Wisconsin.  I don't get to see her much, so I wanted to stay a few days and really spend some time with the fam.  We had a lovely time hanging out, shopping, watching westerns (my dad is a big fan), and shoveling snow.  I actually came home on Friday, but I didn't feel like blogging until today (I don't generally blog on the weekends for some reason, and I may have been feeling a little blue that my sis is going back to Wisconsin).  I also realized how easy it is to get out of the blogging habit.  Anyhow, I'm back and have my computer available, so posts should resume and you can look forward to looking at my face again.

Here is today's face:

natural light

Eyes:  Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 7 eyeshadow palette #204 The Starlet
                   -- metallic silver all over the moving lid and tear duct
                   -- shimmery mushroomy grey taupe type color in the crease and
                                 outer corner and lower lashline
          Urban Decay eyeshadow in Naked to blend out the crease
          Wet 'n' Wild eyeshadow single in Brulee under the brow
          Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-in-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner in Ultra Black
          Bobbi Brown Intensifying Long-Wear Mascara

I think this eye makeup may be a little over the top metallic-wise, but it's sort of cool and futuristic.


Have a beautiful day!


  1. Sounds like a great family visit! Loving the super shimmery shadow on you and the lipstick is so pretty! xo


    1. The lipstick is probably my favorite color ever. I am about to finish the tube, so thank goodness I bought a backup before they discontinued it!

  2. Welcome back! Speaking as a fan of all things futuristic, I like the metallics. :)
