Belated Anti-Valentine's Look

Life has been crazy busy since i decided to start this blog. I hate to delay, but i've been really tired looking and my eyes were red from lack of sleep. I'm posting these 2 looks back to back quite late, as you can see. I'm working 40 hours at work, getting off late and i got the weekend off. My weekend was awesome but also super busy. Also, my sister had my laptop for 2 days cuz she needed to do work at home using the Microsoft Excel in my laptop. So now i've barely gotten the time to post this. Here's what i wore on Valentine's Day. I don't have a boyfriend, technically or officially (IT'S COMPLICATED), so i decided to go Anti-Valentine's Day. I know i look pissed off in these pics, but i swear i'm not. i was in a wonderful mood all day. I was just rushing to take pics before i had to go to work. So please excuse the "I Am Not Amused" look on my face lol.

First, as always, i started with my Urban Decay Primer Potion. I think i sometimes i forget to mention this, but i always use it or my eyeshadow creases like crazy. On top of that, i busted out my Sleek Primer Palette and used the color Noir all over the lid as a base. I then patted Madd Style Cosmetics' Goathead Redd, over Noir, which acts like glue for this awesome color. It's a matte black with tons of red glitter in it.

A little closer to try to show the glittery goodness. It didn't photograph too obviously, but i swear it's there. It's loaded with glitter. I'm sure had i taken the time, i could have gotten a pic to show it off more accurately. But this was the best i could do with the time i had.

In the crease, i used Scaredy Cat Cosmetics' Sakura, described as a metallic burgundy, but it is more of a blood red to me. I blended it down and out very well, as it is a very pigmented color. i lined only the bottom of my eyes with my Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black. This is becoming my go-to liner, i love that i can get a nice thin or thick line that stays all day. I finished off the eyes with Maybelline Falsies Black Drama Mascara.

Another tidbit i never mention but is a staple in my makeup routine, is my EOS Smooth Sphere lip balm. I have Mint and Summer Fruit. I use this everyday before i apply anything else on my lips. I then lined my lips with my Urban Decay 24/7 Lipliner in Gash, and filled them in using my Shiro Intertube in Team Buffy. This went perfectly with this look and is very vampy to me. i love it. Sorry for the deer in the headlights look in this pic lol.

 I put some styling cream in my wet hair and brushed it back into a messy bun. I added some clips for fancy schmancyness since it was a holiday and i was feeling pretty. Idk why i made that face lol.

I was super happy with this look. To me, it reminded me of an actress in the 20's or the way a vampire would look in the 20's. It just gave me a sexy, sultry, dark 20's vibe. Well that's the finished look, i hope you like it, and sorry i posted this WAY after the holiday. This look is also an homage to genericwhore aka Danielle Jacobs.
