Minimal make-up day

Hi everyone! Today I decided to see how little make-up I could put on my face and still feel comfortable about it (of course I mean comfortable when in public, not in the safe zone of my own four walls). Actually, as I went out, I felt 'done' and fresh, so maybe that's a path I should explore more in the future.

Here's how it turned out:

First, I used concealer to cover any discoloration or blemishes, and then buffed in some mineral foundation and added a touch of bright pink blusher. I then spent some time flicking the purple eyeliner and then, as it is not very pigmented, tightlining with a black pencil. I finished the eye look with lots of black mascara and lastly, I put NYX Indian Pink lipstick on my lips.

So what do you think? :)

On a different note, I was happy this morning to see my Illamasqua contest look inspired by Venetian masks featured on Illamasqua's webpage at 
Fingers crossed!

Have a wonderful beginning of the weekend!
