My friend Chard’s tweet was about how it was sad that “basic” is now used to mean something negative, and I agree! I, for one, tend to go for mostly basics when it comes to clothes, and though I love colors in my make-up, I tend to reach for my basics the most. Anyway, here’s a basic face for ya. I had to do office stuff + bank stuff, so I obviously wasn’t going to wear vampy~ lips or a smoky eye. Haha. I mean, I could have, but I didn’t. So there.
There’s really nothing remarkable about this makeup look, aside maybe from the part where I used my blush as a lid shade (over the cream eyeshadow), mainly because I was too lazy to rummage through my stuff for a light lid shade… and maybe the cutesy purple liner that didn’t even translate well on my lids. You disappoint so herd, Marc Jacobs liner!
Anyway, I forgot how much I love MAC’s Mehr! Such a gorgeous matte formula, I love you again.
Skin Care/Prep: LUSH Tea Tree Water, One Love Organics Morning Glory Brightening Complexion Booster, Kosé Suncut Water in UV Protect Essence SPF 50+ PA++++

And that’s that! This pan of Orgasm is making me panic because I still haven’t hit pan and it makes me think about just how much blush I have… All the more reason to do a beauty purge!
