I had a blue and grey smokey eye in mind, but my conscience always says GO FOR THE BRIGHT COLOR so boom.

While I was doing this makeup, I had to do a double-take because there was a beauty mark on my forehead that I never noticed. Turns out I just somehow hurt myself because it's fading now, haha.

Trademark stoic face. I realize that my close-up pictures are a lot more saturated - sorry! It's the lighting situation haha, I don't have any studio lights so I have to make do with natural light. I'm considering studio lights in the future. It'll be nice to have, but not something I absolutely need so I'm holding off on it for now.

I love false lashes. I've been playing around with them a LOT and I'm happy to say I can now apply them with ease! I still have a little trouble with the band being really prominent, though a user on Reddit suggested that I should put a little bit of black eyeliner on top so it can blend in. Also note to self, don't touch up eyeshadow after you've put on lashes cause the fallout will make the band super noticeable.
