My favorite thing to do with makeup in the warmer months is to just put giant circles of eyeshadow or blush around my eyes. I usually do this with pink, but my favorite salmon-pink blush (typically reserved for this type of eye-maneuver) was nowhere to be found. Most likely, it was lurking in a zipped-up pocket of a seldom-used purse or something. I ended up using this yellow color instead. The end result is something I am calling jaundice-chic.
I thought that I was the only person ridiculous enough to just encircle my eyes in random colors, but then, about a month ago, the too-stunning-to-be-real-and-amazingly-stylish-and-smart-and-funny Britney from Disarming Darling posted a magazine editorial that featured makeup like this:
When I saw this, I had one of those moments where I was like, "Ohhhh, see that's what I've been trying to do." It's actually a very similar feeling to yesterday's post, when I found a picture of a girl who looked like the better version of me. In fact, our aesthetic is so similar that some commenters thought it WAS me and then I felt really guilty that I accidentally misled people into thinking I was this hubba-hubba hot model, so I edited to post to make sure everyone knows, and deleted the comments telling me how hot I was. Sorry guys. Whoa, tangent much?
