To counter my semi old-man outfit, I decided to go very bright and very girly with my make-up: teals & blues brighten up my face, and subsequently, day.
Day 2 hair = updos, so today I mixed it up: kept my bang down, braided the center portion of my hair, teased the crown, and wrapped it all up in a pony. I'm not sure if I like this look, but at least it's up and somewhat out of my face! The braid kinda looks like a headband, so that's cool - I'm not a fan of those fake hair headbands you can buy at a local store or mall...they kind of freak me out. Haha.
This look actually took me longer than my normal 5 steps, but was still fun to try out. I used a light seafoam green in the inner corners of my eyes, then shaded out to a royal blue, and the outer corners have a rich, deep brown and some black. I find that with my shaped eyes, I can pretty much mess around with any colors in the center & inner corners, but in order for my eyes to look bigger, a darker brown / black on the outer corners is a must.
What are your staples in your make-up routines?
