A little Pupu, A little HQCD Jewelry6:20 PM
You know, it's funny how things work out sometimes. I've been feeling pretty stripped lately. Just pushed to the edge, tired, stressed, and at the same time trying to be really supportive of my husband. My makeup tends to reflect my mood. I don't wear much makeup when I feel like this so when I came across these pics I took a couple weeks ago where I was pretty bare-boned (just concealer, blush, light wash of shadow, copper pencil liner, and light mascara) it felt well-suited for how I feel today. Not really negative, but just bare.
Hopefully with a bit of vacation time coming up and a little quality time with my new DSLR lens (17-85mm f4-5.6 I found a good deal on from Craigslist) I won't feel so... whatever this feeling is. Frozen?
Anyway, here's my face. I'm wearing my favorite Lancome Photogenic concealer in Camee, Urban Decay 24/7 liners in Zero and Lucky, and a pale golden browbone highlight color. Mascara is Covergirl Lash Exact. My lips have nothing on here, they are just stupid crazy pigmented. :3
And on my cheeks is the Kevin Beautymaker Love Pupu Cheek I bought from Sasa recently. Omg, it's so cute! I got the matte hot pink color.
The packaging is ridiculously adorable, like Hello Kitty.
The only downside is that it's super tiny. Don't let online pics fool you, my finger barely fits in the ribbon loop and I've got slender fingers!
I do love my matte hot pink blushes. It gives a natural, "I've just been running outside in winter" kind of flush that you just don't get from the corals and peaches. Oh, by the way I'm wearing some amazing earrings from He Qi Crystal Designs in this pic!
Bad angle of my face, but a better angle of the blush color and earring. ^^
Lisa heard me say that I liked these earrings and sent them to me. Seriously thoughtful or what? It was a happy early birthday present for me. ^^

Oh, and I wanted to mention that I got the Wonder Eyelid Tapes in from Japan! I haven't taken proper pics of them yet but I did want to say that I'm wearing them in these pics. If you want to order some before it's REALLY up, they are $17.50 shipped within the US per pack. Just shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll reserve one for you. :)
OH x2! I had a nice birthday! Thank you so much for your birthday wishes, it's really been cheering up my mood lately. I mostly relaxed but I did have a nice dinner with the parents who let me order this amazing steak + lobster dinner. I felt so spoiled. XD
Half-eaten dinner pics! -drool- I eat lobster like once every -2 years so it was a really nice treat. ^O^
One last reminder, don't forget to enter the Sequin Cardigan Giveaway! It is the giving time of the year, after all. :)
Okay seriously time for me to go eat something and hang out with my amazing husband. Goodnight everyone!
