Becca and Berries
I fear I've fallen behind on faces, pictures, and posts. I've been lazy about blogging this past week. I'm trying to get myself back into the habit, so here I am posting my current look - what I wore yesterday (since it's late into the night now). Hopefully I can post some past missed looks soon, too. In any case, I thank you for checking in with me!
This eye look was even prettier in person, I do believe. Somehow the black liquid liner is just barely showing up as liner or black or anything at all in the picture above. Please pardon my goofy hair. It's been a bit strange as my fancy cut is growing out and getting awkward now.

I very much like the new Becca foundation! The Porcelain color is too yellow on me, however, so I used Laura Geller's Balance & Brighten in Porcelain, which is very pink, to set the foundation and also pink it up. It worked! The Becca foundation looks very flawless on and wears great on me. I applied a relatively small amount with my fingertips. It's also comfortable on my skin and not at all drying.
The Inglot pigment has a strange crumbly sort of texture, which made it slightly challenging to apply. I used my Shu 10N brush to carefully pat and brush it on, but did manage to make a mess of it under the first eye in particular. It wore very well through the long day, though, which is always a joy with pretty eye things. I like to apply the majority of my eye makeup prior to my face makeup, so that I can easily clean or sweep away any messes before putting on foundation and concealers.
Make Up For Ever's Rouge Artist Natural lipstick formula is light, comfortable, and decently long wearing. It does begin to fade after a several hours, but not in an unflattering way. I think N50 is a great way to branch out into vampy lip shades without feeling intimidated by full color opaque lippies. You don't have to be quite so precise when applying it and it doesn't feel nearly as dry as some other formulas I've used.
Thanks so much for looking and listening. :)
