8/14: MOTD


Black liquid eyeliner
Salon Perfect Lashes #33 (top lashes)
Rimmel Scandal Eyes in "Bulletproof Beige"
mascara: L'Oreal Miss Manga Waterproof Mascara in Black (lower lashes); brows: Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil in Ash/Taupe.


CoverGirl "Ready, Set, Gorgeous" Foundation #115
Rimmel Stay Matte #20
blush: CoverGirl Cheekers in Natural Twinkle
  • I learned that this foundation has a flawless finish if I apply with a sponge instead of a brush. The brush leaves streak marks and I was kind of lazy to use a brush because it needed cleaning, so I founded success with the sponge on accident LOL. I still want to get my hands on a beauty blender (or the one by real techniques) though. I prefer the Stay Matte over the ELF hi-def powder I was trying out because that power left a weird baby powder tint even though it's supposed to be translucent (sigh). Again, I wore SPF moisturizer under this foundation, but it was kind of a waste since I stayed inside all day. I like to experiment with makeup products/techniques on days I don't go out so that when I do go out, I ain't got no worries. ;) What's nice is I can wear this foundation for a night out to avoid that white SPF cast you get in normal foundations. I'm so glad I switched foundations.
Lips: NYX Matte Lip Cream in Tokyo
  • The last time I wore Tokyo was when I went to Vegas with Sky around April. I wasn't sure if I could pull it off this time because I've gotten a little tan this Summer, but it seems okay! I actually haven't worn the matte lips creams in a while, but if I ever feel like wearing something that looks like a lipstick I should grab these because the formula is amazing. However, I think I should apply some light lip balm because my lip lines started to peek through. 

I felt like I was 5 in pigtails today, did the last of my homework for summer session, continued my OTH rerun binge (I'm on season 6!), watched makeup tutorials and product reviews (I want "nose-and-scar" wax now), ate everything in the house, and stayed inside. The hot weather has me so lethargic.

Yesterday, I had a pretty good day. I hung out with my mom the majority of the day, which consisted of shopping (thanks for splurging on me~) and driving her around, but it was nice. This summer I am loving summer dresses, crop tanks, and shorts. I'm still looking for the perfect summer sandal heel, but I might have to give up since Fall's coming around. She's been talking about planning a vacation for a couple days, which I'm sure we BOTH can use. I want to make sure it takes place during the weekdays so that I can still see Sky on the weekend. Speaking of which, I get to see him tomorrow! I'm expecting a pretty relaxed weekend, but I don't mind. Anyways, I think my mom just misses me. She gives me a hard time for going away on weekends, but I see where she's coming from. As long as I spend time with her, she should calm down about me leaving. She asked for a the lowdown about Sky. I told her, and even showed her a picture of him. It's real, you guys. I don't normally disclose my personal life to my mom, let alone my parents, but I think it's important they know who makes me happy.

Earlier was sort of manic because I had to deal with sorting out multiple transcripts, sending multiple emails and making phone calls. I also found out I couldn't sign up for travel abroad this semester, so I'll have to make sure I pre-register around November for next Spring.
