It's getting harder and harder to find a place to take pictures. I'm ready for spring temps and moving outside again if possible.
Shirt, cami and earrings h&m
Boots gift from mom. I think from a western store they're real cowboy boots as opposed to some fashion ones I have owned.
Ring and nails
For makeup I did a blue eyewing and a soft layer of white shadow. Peach blush and a nudie lip color. I have been on the hunt for a MLBB (I just learned that lingo on makeup alley. My lips but better) I don't have a ton of pigment in my lips but I'd like a nice "neutral" lips for days I want to feature other features so to speak. I had seen this pictures of Joanie and been wanting to check our this lipstick they mentioned.
I have no delusions that any amount of lipstick will make me look like that but it was worth checking it out. They recommend Beige Felin by Chanel. They don't say that is what she is wearing but they suggest it for the look. Beige Felin looks nothing like that photo in real life. It was very brown and not at all attractive. But my lovely makeup girl helped me find what we interpreted as it. We settled on Jersey Rose #77. We did pretty good I'd say. It looks like the one in the photo of her and the lipstick on it's own. My lovely Chanel lady told me something I'd king suspected. The makeup used in photos isn't always what they list. They will have to "feature" a brand on oh say America's top model but in reality it isn't what they used. They do what looks good for the image. I'm just wearing a quick swipe of it here but it's the perfect color to apply without needing a mirror. (When I wear red it requires a mirror for touch up and to check for migrating)
I've seen a few blog posts about Japan and also how can people blog and not address it and how awful of them for that. I saw a comment say something to the effect that just because it isn't mentioned doesn't mean that the blogger isn't effected or not care. I totally care. I do my bit quietly and don't always find I need to blog about the bad. We know it going on and it's horrific. As you know last year I had a lot of loss. I lost 6 people in my family. Days it felt like I'd never feel real again. But other days I laughed and was happy but it was never far away from the front of my thoughts. Know what I mean? It will always effect me but sometimes you don't need to talk about it. Other you do.
On that note and living life, how are you? How is your week?
Are you doing anything special for St.Patrick's day? I am Irish and live in Boston. Which you'd think required revelry but man oh man I can't stand the drunk "kids" ack. It was always a very special day for pop. He was a very very proud Irish. He wore a shamrock gold chain at all times so people KNEW, hey I'm Irish! It's our first without him. I want to honor him in a special way but I'm not sure how yet.
