no, that's me
But you can be the trendiest bitch that other people know (if they don't know me)

You know I have been on that orange lipstick grind forever now (with no intent to stop even if it stops being trendy, i love it so) but I am always still trying to find something new and exciting. I mean GAWWD, looking at my same face every day is such a bore I can't do it.
So when I saw images the day following the Chanel Couture S/S 14 show, I about cried. Then I fixed my makeup.
So I put it off recreating this look for a while because (strangely) I did not pack glitter in the suitcase I still live out of. Finally, after being emotionally scarred-- realizing the shade of foundation I've been using for 2+ years is no longer in production...I BOUGHT MYSELF A FEW NICE THINGS-- LIKE--
You know what's great? NYX brand is actually pretty great. Now that its at most Targets too, that is great 4 us rural folk who don't have Sephoras/Ultas/etc but wanna be bEaUtiFuL, too!
SO WHEN I GOT HOME I WAS LIKE
~ because to be honest-- I look pretty plain without dark eyeliner on my top lids, and for 3 seconds I began to regret my purchase ~
then i remembered the Chanel Couture makeup look
then i failed a few times and burned my eyes with glitter
then i cried happy tears when i looked in the mirror
I LOOKED LIKE A BOSS
I FELT LIKE A BOSS
I BECAME THE BOSS AND TOOK ALL YOUR $$$
My version is a lot more subtle than the Chanel couture version, obviously! But I think it still works well and isn't overwhelming in the slighest...maybe still too wild to wear in the business office...but we all know I'll probably try :P
To get the vibe right:
1. Begin with a base of eyeshadow. I like a crisp white or light cream color (matte if you have it!) on the whole of the lid
2. Slap on your favorite black eyeliner. I run a pencil first, and then set and define things better with a felt tip eyeliner marker. It can be pretty heavy, so go for it!
3. Begin, in dabs, to apply the liquid crystal gold liner just below your lower lash line. Let dry and continue to build up in layers, smoothing it out into more of line as you go. Follow the wing of your black liner when you get to the corners
My lower lashes are stupid long for some reason, so I just went with it and let them be glittery, too!
4. Add some mascara to the tops
also consider lining your lower waterline with white to make your eyes reflect light even more...it is crazy how bright your eyes will twinkle with this look!
