Back to school eye makeup!
All right, so I lied. I did not update the other day or yesterday. However, I had readings to do. Which becomes substantially more difficult when you realize that you got completely the WRONG textbook from eBay. Seriously, the wrong book. Now I don't have the cash to shell out for the correct book. Hopefully a nice classmate will let me borrow hers. You know, joint custody over the textbook. I'll take it on weekends, take it for food, love it, treat it well. Thank goodness for nice people and not having quizzes on every reading. But seriously, the money required to pay for textbooks is ridiculous. Thankfully, I buy all mine used for a fraction of the price - unfortunately I may occasionally run into problems like this one. Ugh! I'm so frutrated, seriously. Thanks, every single seller on eBay who said this book was the same as the one I needed to buy. Yup, not just one, but at least 5 different sellers all said that this edition was the exact same as the one on my class list. Of course it wasn't. Just my luck!
After all this, I had some birthdays to celebrate! Finally, 4 months after turning 21, I went to a bar. Seriously! At home I am not allowed to partake in things other 21-year-olds like to get out of their system before entering the real world. So for my friend's 21st last night and my boyfriend's 22nd today, we hit a cozy bar for some beer and drinks. It was nice to get off campus!
So, needless to say, this update is happening now and not earlier.
This is the look that I wore on move-in day! Yes, I rock the pin-up and red lip look on move in day. I move into school in style, my friends. Please excuse the smudges around my lips. I remembered to take photos of my eyes before I left but only took the photos of my lips after the long day.
This red is an incredibly pigmented liquid lipstick by Chickaboom. What's on my lips here is basically the intense stain left over after a long day. It's the perfect cherry red to rock something sexy or pin-up-y.
This is a simple look. I believe it was just Daybreak all over with a matte brown either by Lancome (Mochaccino) or Clinique (Chocolate Chip).
The eyeliner is my usual Wet 'n' Wild in the black waterproof.
NYX white pencil on the water line.
MUFE Aqua eyes in 12L on my lower lash line for a little bit of fun.
Tomorrow (yes, tomorrow for real!) I'll post the neutral green look I wore on the first day of classes. I also have a fun silver and blue Cosmic looking eye to show off, but I'll post that another day.
Love 'n' bubbles!
