Face of the Day: May Flowers?

Yesterday was a really nice day. It was in the late 60s and slightly breezy. I went for a walk and it was awesome.

Unfortunately, that one nice day is amidst a sea of shivery, cold, cloudy days. Today is once again cold and…dumb.

But oh well! At least I had one good day!

And today’s look shows off what I really want: tropical weather.

I’m having a pretty day. You know. One of those days where you look in the mirror and think “yes, I’m very pretty today.” I like those days.

For my face, I used the philosophy Hope in a Tinted Moisturizer in Extra Light (and there will totally be a review of that soon.) And, instead of blush, I swiped some Maybelline Blush Bronzer in Sunlight on my cheeks instead.

Oh, and Clinique Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine Gloss in Sugar Plump on my lips. Can’t forget about that!

I used the Cover Girl Eye Enhancers compact in Tropical Fusion for all of the eye shadow. I put the lime color on the lid, green color in the crease and up, and the orange color on the lower lid (but barely.)

Then, I lined my eyes with Maybelline Define-A-Line Eyeliner in Ebony Black. And I used Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara in Jet Black on the top and bottom lashes (there’s a review of this soon, too!)

Woo! A lot of makeup! But it lets me pretend it’s warm outside, even though it’s totally not.

I hope you have an awesome weekend! And Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s out there, including my own.
