Morning guys! Second day up early, a real struggle to get up, and not because it was cold, the pain is always so fresh the first day after, and waking up at any time and not just give into taking meds and crawling back in bed is horrendous. However, I am up, and I need to kick my butt in gear to get the show on the road!
Day 22: Thanks to being in a lot of pain with my migraine, super simple today, as much as I tried to convince myself last night to use my new palette... it wasn't happening today. So its simple liner today.. but in an attempt to jazz it up, I used one of my Galaxy Liners from @jdglowcosmetics in shade Hot Topic. Now, with my super pale skin, it barely shows up, so I layered it over black eyeliner, and I love the effect!
The liner is paired with @fentybeauty Shimmer stick highlight in Unicorn, and a lip ombre. I wanted to use at least something I earned today since I skipped on the palette, but the lipsticks are so bright, and I didn't feel like a bright lip would go with the liner, so I used @anastasiabeverlyhills Sad Girl, and ombred it with the @jeffreestarcosmetics (818) velour liquid lipstick!
Soft look for an engagement party this evening. Eyeshadows are by @igneouscosmetics . Highlight is Saks N Fifth by @jdglowcosmetics . Lipstick is the @beautycreations.cosmetics liquid lipstick from last month’s Boxycharm. I really like this shade!
Whoops repost... the last one had double up photos 🤷♀️ A few people have asked me what I think of the @jdglowcosmetics multichrome liners and whether they are actually duochrome/multichrome. Well I only have the blue shade and I think it is a little sheer and can be difficult to build up on it’s own... HOWEVER, over a black gel/liquid liner it is fantastic! I am wearing it over a black @colourpopcosmetics gel liner and it pops with one coat! Also it’s hard to capture the colour shift straight on and in some lighting but I attempted to show the shift in the close up photo (swipe to see). So are the perfect? No. Are the gorgeous and look spectacular when you learn how to best apply them? Fuck yes!
Also as per usual @tonymoly.au Velvet Lip Stain in Ruby Orange. Review coming soon! 💙✨🍊

Hello sweet friends!
I'm so sorry I'm horrible at posting regularly lately. But I am still here! Work has been so crazy lately, but a sweet friend and mentor reminded me yesterday that taking time for myself is so important. I work so hard to make everyone around me happy, to be perfect, to be a good worker, partner, mother... I forget to do things I enjoy. I want to be sure everyone else is feeling special and supported and loved, and I want to take burdens from others. I catch myself feeling actually GUILTY for wanting to spend time alone. I've started getting back into things that make me feel fulfilled, and one of those is my artistry. Sometimes self care is waking up an hour early to play with glitter and my favorite eyeshadow shade; olive green!
I hope you're taking some time for YOU today 💕💕
