I bought some eyeshadow last week from Sugarpill Cosmetics (because the entire internet was, so if I didn’t I was going to have to give the internet back – plus Amy’s nice too), so I figured it was about time I took my gold pants out of the drawer they’ve been sitting in since last September. The pants acted like a reflector and gave me a healthy summer glow.

I’ll spare you the details of how I put what on and why, because I don’t really know what I’m doing when I put on makeup (even though I like to pretend and sometimes people let me pretend on their face), and it’s really just a lot of trial and error and dropping my brushes and cursing when I accidentally get liquid liner all over my eyelid and have to start over.

List of makeup I used (I’m sure you’re on the edge of your seat):

    1. – Too Faced Primed and Poreless Face Primer
      – Make Up Forever Full Cover Concealer #8
      – Benefit Eye Bright
      – Smashbox O Gloss
      – NYC Browser
      – MAC Barestudy Paint Pot
      – Homemade Eyeshadow Primer (equal parts Unscented Glysomed hand cream, L’Oréal Bare Naturale Face Powder #401 and Aloe Vera gel)
      – Morgana Minerals Coven Loose Eye Pigment
      – Sugarpill Goldilux Chromalust Eyeshadow
      – Smashbox Matte White Eyeshadow
      – Make Up Forever Kohl Pencil in 2K
      – Rimmel Sexy Curves Black Mascara
      – Wet N’ Wild Mega Eyes Black Liquid Eyeliner
        – Some generic pair of false lashes I bought in Hayward for 75¢ at the

    99¢ Only Store

      (they were on sale!)
      – MAC Dollymix Blush
      – Make Up Forever HD Microfinish Powder

For the photo nerds that wandered in here:
The first photo was shot with a 17-40 lens at f4 400 ISO, using two Visatek Solo 1600 Bs, a silver reflector, some silver foil and the available light source in the room. One light was about 7 feet in the air, aimed down at me, with a square softbox. The other aimed at the ceiling. The second photo was shot using a 50mm at f1.8 100 ISO, and the positions of the lights were unchanged :)
