Face of the Day: Purple, Bows and Script Frenzy

Know what? It’s less than a week until my birthday. I’ll be 28 next Wednesday. 28! I’m excited!

I’m wearing a purple top today, so I thought I’d coordinate my look to match that. And if anyone ever tells you that you shouldn’t match your makeup to your outfit, you just ignore them, okay?

Check out that headband. It was some cheap kid’s headband that I attached a homemade yellow ribbon bow to following Morgan’s headband tutorial on Mrs. Priss (all of her DIY tutorials are super awesome). And I added a gold button for good measure.

Oh yeah, I’m wearing makeup, too. I almost forgot (but not really).

Before I get down to business about the purple smoky eye makeup, let’s talk about lips. I wanted something muted since the eye was so bold, so I swept on some Max Factor Vivid Impact Lipcolor in Rose Rage. The color is very similar to my natural lip color.

For eye shadow, I used Urban Decay Eye Shadow in Last Call, MAC Eye Shadow in Shadowy Lady and the shimmery light pink shade in the Almay Intense i-Color Kit in Smoky-i for Greens.

Then, I lined my eyes in Maybelline Define-A-Line Eyeliner in Ebony Black and swept on some Almay Intense i-Color Volumizing Mascara in Raisin Quartz.

This post is making me sleepy. I could seriously take a nap right now.

How’s your Thursday going?

Speaking of Thursdays (and this has nothing to do with them), I’ve decided to do Script Frenzy this year. Basically, you write a 100-page screenplay/script in the month of April. It’s put on by the same people that do National Novel Writing Month (where you write a 50,000 word novel in a month.)

I’ve never written a script, so this is more for fun than anything else.

Anyone else doing Script Frenzy?
