I think one of the most amazing things about makeup is how much it can turn my mood around. I was feeling super down over the weekend, having lost my grandfather last week. Not to mention, I’m in the midst of finals for my hardest college semester yet… thank god it’s my second to last one. Anyway, I was feeling so crummy on Friday, so what did I do? Broke into my makeup and created something beautiful, of course!
Smoky eyes are my go-to when I need a boost of attitude and confidence, can anyone else relate? I love working with purples to really make my brown eyes look bright. The new Revealed 3 Palette from Coastal Scents is full of purple tones with splashes of golds and pinks for the most springy of springtime looks.
My favorite part of this look is the waterline. I almost never play up the waterline with color because 1) sticking to black makes my lashes look thicker and 2) I’ve never found a decent drugstore pencil that actually stays put, despite my terribly watery eyes. Well, I finally found one and I love how the gold just peeks out from behind my lashes!
