Makeup: pinks and purples

 I've been so uninspired by makeup lately.  it used to be I could create a look and happily wear it for a few weeks before I got bored but now I tweak and change everyday and I'm always bored.  But lets face it I haven't been myself at all lately.  I don't know.  Maybe it's my layout change?  i thought it would inspire me to take this blog further but it seems to have had the opposite effect.  If anything I'm closer than ever to abandoning the whole project. 

So here is some makeup I've been playing with using some fresh spring pinks and purples.  I used a pale lilac/grey cream as an all over lid base.  Then I used a icy pale lilac, almost pink, loose powder as an highlighter in the inner corners but also a wee dot in the center of each lid to draw in the light.  Then I used a thin line of eggplant purple cream liner.

I used my favorite blush ever, a natural pink flush on the cheeks and a rosy pink gloss on the lips.

Makeup used : Cream shadow in Gossip, loose shadow in Jelly Roll, and cream liner in Stiletto; all by Benefit.

Benefit powder in Thrrrob and Sally Hansen gloss in Bloom.

Daily Wear: running away with the band

I haven't been around much I know.  I've been working a lot, A LOT and I really feel i have no time for recreation between that and my errands and chores. I've just been way too busy to think about posts or clothes or pictures.  I haven't kept up on the blogs I follow either.

This month, not sure of the date, marks my one year anniversary of keeping this blog.  And I'm wondering if it's worth the bother to continue.  I think I'd feel guilty if I stopped.  And unlikely to ever start it up again.  But while it can be fun for me, it isn't necessary.  There are thousands of indistinguishable blogs out there and I'm not sure I want to contribute to the deluge.

A couple quick pics of my fantasy of running away.  I'm going to Rome and Barcelona in the fall.  Thinking about and planning that are taking up my brief moments of free time.

I don't wear my glasses much here, but I got new ones.
