Apparently, March is sponsored by number 3; makes sense, right? (Except, I have a post lined up featuring number 5... and I won't wait till May). Mad ramblings aside, a couple days ago I was feeling particularly guilty for my usual work 'slap-rinse-repeat' make-up routine and decided to call on my bright eyeliner pencils for a little help, and here's the result. It's nothing ground-breaking, really, but I promised to show Laura Mercier Mineral Powder on my face (used as a base, not a setting powder) and I haven't shared any looks in a long time...
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Electric. Honestly, I don't do the whole tightlining thing too often; I wear contact lenses and I keep them on for over 12 hours at a time, so putting anything else in my eye is really not ideal. This was fun though; and the white balance in the photos makes me look less... basemental? Benefit Coralista on the cheeks, Giorgio Armani Rouge d'Armani Sheers in Coral 301 on the lips.
Sephora Collection Nano Eyeliner in Azur Blue no.16. Not my favorite eyeliner pencil formula but a gorgeous color nonetheless. This bright eyeliner on the top lashline is something I do quite a bit, especially with a very fine line of black smushed into the lashes to offset the bold color. NYX Powder Blush in Pinky on the cheeks, can't for the life of me remember what was on my lips... Fresh Sugar Treatment in Rose, maybe? (well that's really helpful...)
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Ransom. I don't think that purple under the eye was my greatest idea yet; towards the end of the day, it definitely complimented my white face to make me look like I'd been freshly dug out. I do like that color a lot, though, and a brighter color on the lower lashline is such an easy way to de-yawnify a neutral eye look. Again, Coralista on the cheeks, MAC Jest lipstick lightly dabbed on the lip and topped with a clear gloss.
