Hearts on Fire

I'm back!  I am playing catch up once again.  I swear, one day I will get the hang of this and figure out my timing.  This was a fun look I did using two new L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadows as well as a new Tom Ford lipstick.

I was a bit hesitant to pair Golden Mahogany with Pepsy Coral, but I figured that I could make it work and I'm glad that I went for it!  It's fun trying new color combinations together.  Check out my hair below!  It's all wooshy wavy and I look like I'm in a hair product ad or something.

My hair tends to look the most wavy and awesome the first day after I've washed it.  I only wash about twice a week, so there are many awkward in-between days.

I really love the orange eyeliner and shadow combination on the lower lash line.  I used Anna Sui waterproof pencil in 800 and smudged Makeup Geek eyeshadow in Goddess over top.

The above picture is a little blurry - I apologize for that.  I just thought it made my lashes look nice and you can also see the gold liner on my inner lowers better (Urban Decay El Dorado).  In the next picture I am attempting to smile.  I say attempt because clearly I didn't quite make it all the way to actual smile.

And one more with my eyes closed.  I love how the Golden Mahogany eyeshadow on my lid mirrors the plumminess of the lipstick.  I guess it's plummy-pink, sort of,  the eyeshadow.
