Face of the Day: Nerdy McNerd

We all have our nerdy side. At least that’s what I’d like to believe anyway.

My nerdy side? Well, I play video games (and that’s a bit of an understatement.)

But since I work from home and am relatively new to the state, I decided to join…a role player’s cub. And to make it even more nerdy, I’ve been playing in a vampire LARP. That stands for “Live Action Role-Playing”. We get together and pretend to be vampires.

It’s a lot less lame than it sounds. I promise.

Last night the club had a Meet ‘N Greet to get new members. I was SO there.

But that’s not going to stop me from being super adorable. After all, I’m multi-faceted.

Here’s how I looked for my overly nerdy night:

Except imagine it with glasses and a lip ring.

I did my eyes in a pink/purple smoky look to complement my green striped top.

I threw on my favorite blush on the apples of my cheeks: L’Oreal Bare Naturale All-Over Mineral Glow in Rose Glow.

Over that, I used the pink color for the Hot Topic Sour Eye Shadow Palette from the crease and up. Then MAC Eye Shadow in Shadowy Lady (dark plum) in the crease to make it smoke.

I lined all around my eyes with Maybelline Define-A-Line Eyeliner in Ebony Black and coated my lashes in Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara in Very Black.

That was a lot of products!

So, while I had a nerdy night (so nerdy!), I still did a full face of makeup. Because I like makeup. And nerdy things.

What do you do that’s nerdy?
