This was yesterday's face that I did in a rush. Somehow I lost track of time in the morning and didn't leave myself enough time to do what I normally like to do. This took me about 20 minutes, I believe. As I say that, I feel like it's ridiculous and should have been completed much, much quicker!
All self-criticism aside, I do like how it turned out. And you can see I'm only using minimal gold sparkle on the eyes here. That leaves room for more extreme gold sparklage to be had today!

Nars Scarlet Empress lipstick
Look how short my list is! It's almost...reasonable! :) I just want to point out that Koh Gen Do Aqua foundation is so superb that I know I can slap it on in a hurry and not even worry about primer. It wears that well. I saw some minor breakdown after it had been on about 9 or 10 hours. Also, randomly, I love how it smells.
I had a bit of creasing on my occasionally creasy left eye, which leaves me to wonder, what on earth went wrong? I was hoping that with the Nars eye primer that would never happen again. Oh well. I guess I can't have it all. I'm thinking maybe I didn't blend out the Caviar Stick enough - like, maybe it was too thick?
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to drop me a line about anything.
