Gothbird FOTD

7:10 PM

I've been a bit exhausted and under the weather the last couple days so I'm going to keep this entry short, but here is a quick FOTD using Mineral Magic Cosmetics eyeshadows.

Here's what I used:

* Mineral Magic Cosmetics Shadows in Bird, Goth, and Opal for highlight
* Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Grapefruit
* Mac Mineralize Grand Duo Blush in Love Rock

Also, see that nifty dual-ended brush at the right there? One side has a flat angled liner and the other end is this unique cylindrical, angled-cut brush that actually works quite well with mineral eyeshadow. I've found mine to be super handy for travel. I'll be giving one away along with a few other Mineral Magic brushes very soon!

Here is the look:

I love the pop of canary yellow that Bird gives. SUCH a pigmented color! (oh, and please ignore my smudged eyeliner line :P) I wish Goth showed up better. It's a pretty reddish copper here, but has more mint-iridescent dimension in real life.

For some reason I always want to post good wavy-hair days. Maybe it was because I grew up with such straight hair. I shower at night and sleep on wet hair so when I can wake up with something that LOOKS styled, I call it a good hair day.

This look just got me thinking. I really enjoy the neutral look with a pop of color. Anyone else do this a lot? What is your "popped" color of choice?

  7. How pretty! Hm, I actually rarely do neutrals with a pop of color... If I do color then it's usually a subtle monochromatic eye, though I guess I did do gold/neutrals with a pop of blue recently.

  8. wow you are lucky your hair ends up that great waking up in the morning. my hair never turns out like that.

  9. I love the using a pop color! I'm all over the spectrum with purples, blues, greens, oranges. Lots of jewel tones.

    I posted a link to your blog on my wedding blog with a shout-out to the Easy Summer Braids you posted, I love it!

  10. I've been noticing you keep your eyelid tape pretty close to the insides, does it hurt?

    When I apply the tape too close to my inner eyes it hurts, am I putting it on wrong?
