Hey guys! Let me be frank with ya for a second.. I've been in a makeup rut. I feel like I can't escape it. My eye looks are always a light base with a medium shade in the crease and a deep color or black in the outer V with some liner and mascara. It's gotten repetitive and boring! So I have been inspired by my own rut to create a different kind of look for today's makeup of the day.

So here is it!

Ugh. I seriously need to remember to brush out my brow gel. It's the one thing I ALWAYS forget and it's soo annoying to see.
For today's look I covered my entire lid with a darker blue base and dabbed my favorite silver shadow in the middle of my lid to make everything pop. Instead of my usual thin winged liner, I opped for a more intense one! I always forget how much fun it is to play with colors and I really need to do it more often.

Products used
Urban Decay Primer Potion
LORAC eyeshadow 'Slate' (all over lid)
L'Oreal HIP eyeshadow duo 'Platinum' (silver shade - in middle of lid)
LORAC eyeshadow 'Mauve' (crease)
L'Oreal HIP eyeshadow duo 'Platinum' (black shade - outer corner)
Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner
Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara [quickly becoming my favorite]
Maybelline Big Eyes mascara

MAC Pro Longwear concealer 'NW15'
Urban Decay eyeshadow 'Secret Service' (brows)
Anastasia brow gel

This look is just the start of it for me and stepping out of my comfort zone. There are only so many brown toned nude shadow looks that a makeup blog can hold and I'm fairly certain I have exceeded my limit. Oops! Hopefully my upcoming looks will inspire some of you all to step out and use some color in your looks as well :) Let me know what you thought of this one and if you have any creative looks that you've seen, send 'em my way! I would love to try them out.

Until next posttttt,
