Simple Work Eye's

This past couple of weeks have been rough to say the least. This week I was having major pain from my one of my wisdom teeth, so when it came time to get ready for work, I didn't feel like putting a ton of effort into my makeup. But since I work in the public I also didn't want to do nothing either. This is a super simple look. I used Too Faced Naked Eye Palette. Its just a light matte beige on the lid and highlight w/a medium shimmery brown blended into the crease and outer corner. Easy, but still put together. Thanks for looking :)

Sunday Smokey Eye

I was feeling a light smokey eye for work today and had been wanting to try out ELF's Gunmetal Cream Liner that I picked up last week. I used the cream liner as a base all over the lid and just slightly into the crease. I topped it with Stake (matte medium grey), Dusk (light/medium matte brown) to blend out the crease & edges. Then lightly on top of Stake I applied Bayou (shimmery gold). The eyeshadow shades are all from Tarte's TrueBlood Palette. A picture of the palette can be found in a previous post. I love this kind of look for fall. Its so simple to achieve with whatever lid colour you like then blended out with a soft brown.

A Couple EOTD's

Hello, just to start I am sorry for the lack of posts. Its been kinda a crazy hectic couple of weeks. So I had totally been spacing on taking pictures of looks. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of Urban Decay's Book Of Shadows IV!! I expect it to arrive early next week, fingers crossed :)
Anyway here is a couple of looks I've done this week. Both are very basic and IMO work appropriate
For this one I used my Stila Backstage Eye Palette. I found this little beauty at Winner's for $10. What a steal! Every shadow is perfection, so soft and buttery. I used the bottom left all over the lid/crease and blended the crease out with the middle top shade. These are named but I don't have my palette handy at the moment. I can't remember if I lined my upper lashline, but from the picture it doesn't appear so. The main shadow that I used appears to be a brown in the palette but applies more of a mauve. Its very beautiful. Today I pulled out my Urban Decay Book Of Shadow II, which is my favourite BOS yet. This is a very simple 2 shadow look. I applied Sellout (2nd row, 2nd shade) all over the lid and Misdemeanor (last row, last shade) on the outer corner and crease. I lined my upper lashline with a a teal gel liner.
