Day Twenty: Do You Wear Makeup Everyday?

Absolutely not. Don’t get me wrong guys, if you do respect lol but I have my “fuck it” days where I’ve got too much to do and I don’t have time to put on makeup, or I honestly just don’t want to (those are my blah days). I love all aspects of makeup; creating new looks for myself, doing my friend’s makeup, practicing new techniques but I also try to give my skin a rest so it can be healthy as well. Back in high school and my teens I always, always, always (too much? lol) wore makeup and my skin hated me for it, I learned the hard way you don’t always have to have full face to look your best!

Now that summer is here and its hot and humid as all get out I definitely keep the makeup minimal with tinted moisturizer, some bronzer, mascara and an SPF lip balm. My skin gets so oily this time of year if I add foundation I will have some zits and blemishes within a day :(.

I Heart NYX Pearl Mania!

I had already purchased NYX Glitter pigments and adored them, so naturally I knew it was safe to say the pearl pigments would be just as gorgeous! I ordered a few of them the other day and got them last night, but since it was rainy crap day here I was mostly just being lazy. All I can say is these pigments went beyond my expectations and I love em’.

L to R: Nude Pearl, Mocha Pearl, Charcoal Pearl, Very Pink Pearl, Jade Pearl and Turquoise Pearl.

These swatch beautifully and trust me you do not need a lot, these are very dense and vibrant powders.

Gorgeous!

Today I wanted to play around and try out these pigments so I did a very simple look. I used Jade Pearl Mania on my lids and lower lashline, and black liquid liner to finish off the look. I also used the Nude Pearl Mania for a brow bone highlighter.

Now for the final look…(drum role lol)

To make sure the pearl pigment would stick with no fall out I used Maybelline Color Tattoo in Edgy Emerald.
