Nooooooo-tral FOTD

Here's a look I did last week before class. I really wanted to wear a red lip with this and rock a pin-up inspired look for the day, but I was in a rush to get to school and I didn't want to bother with a red lip.

I'm really trying to get away from doing boring neutral looks because I've been doing a lot of them lately, and I kind of want to venture out, know what I mean? Plus, it's spring, so I can get away with doing more colourful looks!

MAC Soft Ochre paintpot
Annabelle Vanilla Chilla e/s (all over the lid) and as highlight
MAC Vanilla pigment (over Vanilla Chilla) and right under brow arch
MAC Cork e/s (in outer corner/crease)
MAC Espresso e/s (to define outer V)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Bonne Bell Eye Definer e/l in Glow (on waterline)
Maybelline Lash Stiletto Voluptuous mascara
Annabelle Ebony e/s (to fill in brows)

I've recently started getting into doing a neutral "base" look, but using colour in the crease to spice a look up. I'll probably show you guys what I mean in a future FOTD. (:

this is the exact look I used to do every single day for work. It's real simple. I think you do a better job though lol

I love neutral looks so I think this is so pretty! I know what you mean though by wanting to venture out that's my prob right now, I need to get some color back into my looks. I love how you do your liner too! :)

Very pretty look! & I totally agree with you about the NYX Champagne & Caviar palette.. I was most excited about that one, but it's my least favorite because I feel like I have to keep layering and layering on my eyes just to get it to really show.

I also agree with you about the 88 palettes! I pretty much NEVER reach for them.. the only 88 palette I do find myself reaching for often is the warm palette.. the colorful ones are pretty much useless to me. :/

btw, you really pull off a bright pink lip! The color looks great on you. I'm super duper pale so most bold colors look ridiculous on me (in my opinion).

Love this neutral look. This is definitely something I'd do everything. And you should've totally gone with that red lip. You would've rocked the pin up look! (:
