Beauty Fix // Givenchy Noir Couture Mascara & Le Rouge Lipstick

I finally treated myself to some new makeup! Givenchy’s Noir Couture Mascara in Black Satin and Le Rouge Lipstick #204 Rose Boudoir. I was in severe need of a new mascara and my mother, a great makeup enthusiast, swears by Givenchy. I was pleasantly surprised — it doesn’t dry out my lashes in the least and separates while coating each little lash in black. I’m also swooning over the Rose Boudoir lipstick. I love the plush rose shade of the lipstick, not to mention it has such a smooth and creamy texture. It sits so lightly on my lips. It’s really perfect for a pop of color in the summer, but I think I’ll wear it all year round. 

FOTD // Versatile Eyeshadow for Brown Eyes


I’m convinced that Kat Von D’s “On the Road” duochrome eyeshadow is perfect. It reminds me of a shade by MAC that I loved to death in college — a nice chocolate brown with a green irridescent sparkle overlay. It was glorious. I wore the shit out of it. Needless to say, I’m pleased to find a shade like this again years later, the perfect amount of glitter against my dark-dark brown eyes.

I used to be so anti-brown eyeshadow, thinking it wouldn’t enhance my own dark eyes. I was wrong & now I’m a total convert.

A simple and easy look that went with my Surprise Party outfit. Oh, and I might be exclusive to the Too Faced lash lining tool because it’s a perfectperfectperfect liquid eyeliner. I can get the line thin and tight on my lash line or make it thicker and swoop it out.

All I ever have is five minutes. You can tell from my still damp hair in the above photo. 
Sometimes, most of the time, I don’t devote that much time putting my face on.

I’m beginning to favor more simple but still striking looks. A glimmer of deep silver shadow, a swipe of my favorite lip pencil, and tried and true mascara are my daily staples. The NARS lip pencil is amazing with a light, non-drying texture. It’s my 90 year old grandmother’s favorite pencil, too. For real.

As much as I adore red lipstick and dramatic looks, let’s be real here. This is a typical every day look for me with just a little bit more volume. Gold tones and and some brown smoke. I used to be vehemently against nude lipstick, but I think I’m coming around…

Finally, a new makeup post! Here I am testing out a shimmery natural look. With some new goodies from Glossybox, I wanted to put a look together that could work for day (not too much dramarama) but stays cool for night (drinks, anyone?).

The light lilac powder is perfect for layering, but I am digging it on it’s own. It would also look neat as a highlighter. So far, I think this face of the day is going to make repeat appearances this spring, no?
