I used the LORAC PRO Palette thinking some neutrals were in order for the day (I have no idea/can't remember why), and started with using mostly Mauve in the crease, Pewter on the lid, and Deep Purple in the outer v corner. I felt like it was really muddy and blah, which is when I started to get annoyed and started to dislike what I had done. Instead of starting all over, I just patted some Gold over the top of everything (which really blotted out the Pewter shade), added Cream in the inner corner and under the brow, and lined my upper lashes with Black. Once I added liner on the lower waterline and some mascara, I felt a little better about it, but I'm still not that keen on it.

I added some favorite shades on my cheeks and lips to try to make me happier.
Cheeks: NARS Orgasm blush
Lips: Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

I guess it turned out fine. Whatever. I guess it was a grumpy day for me.
How do you deal with a look you aren't happy with? Start over, change it, or live with it?
