Miscellaneous, Softly Special: All About the Eyes

Without Further Adieu, Goodbye Eye Makeup Month!

(LOL. I know my title is wrong. Give a girl a break for trying to crack a joke!)

I was going to post an eyeshadow collection, but then it made me feel like a poophead for having so much. So I won’t post it right now, but let me know if you’d like to see it. Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you for enduring an eye makeup only month and for being so nice about my stupid queued posts and the frequency of them. 🙂 I really appreciate all the comments and the suggestions.

Since this Eye Makeup Month is a sort of special celebration of my birthday… are you wondering when my birthday was? It was yesterday! 🙂 I was nursing some bizarre allergy so I didn’t get to take a photo of what I wore. However, if you were curious, here’s what I used:

Birthday FOTD - Stuff

I turned 25, gag. I think my brain stopped being aware of my age at nineteen. Aside from Eye Makeup Month over here on Softly, this is what has been happening in my non-beauty blog life:


For elaboration and such, feel free to head on over to my main blog, my Instagram, and/or my Twitter, since I post everything else on those places anyway. 🙂

Also, in case you missed any of the eye posts, you can go ahead and click here for the Master List of posts. I’ll keep it up as a sticky post on the front page for maybe about a week or so, then you can also find it on the sidebar after that. I feel like some of these posts have been marginally useful, yes?

Here’s a preview of what I have in line for the next few posts:

Stuff to Look Forward to

Don’t you find it funny (ish) that I still have backlogged posts lined up after roughly 4 months of my No Buy. That is insane. And that is why I had to go on it. (I did pick up a few things for my birthday, though. Oops.)

I’ve been thinking about a bunch of fun Halloween tutorials, too. I’m not much of a Halloween person because I didn’t grow up with it, so I never really prepared much for it! I’ll try to force it into my consciousness, though. I’m sure it’ll be fun times!

That’s all for now! Thanks again for bearing with all the information. As I’ve said before, I love eye makeup. Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook (which I have since changed to my entire blog instead of just this sub-branch) and subscribe to my YouTube channel. I have a lot of videos planned.

See you around and have a great week ahead. 🙂


  1. Eyeshadow month went by so quickly! Can’t believe it’s been 30 days! Had so much fun reading your posts. Hope you could do more “challenges” soon 😊

  2. Has it been a month already? It’s been fun, thanks for doing it Carina! I hope you can do some other themed month in the future! (lip month maybe?) And belated happy birthday!

    • Sadly, yes! Haha thanks! I don’t really think I have enough “material” for a lip month, but maybe another lipstick week. Thank you, Pat!

  3. Happy birthday! 🙂 I turned 25 this year too! Unlike you though, I completely broke my no buy rule, although I’m as strict with myself as I should be, I use “no buy” very loosely :-/ Anyways, I had a great NARS appt and made friends with the mua so I’m planning on going back when it’s not a special event day and playing around with different looks in the future. I love your eye looks, keep it up! 🙂

    • Thank you! 😀 I did break my no-buy a couple of times, but yes. I think the important thing is to try. 🙂 I’m so happy to hear about your NARS appointment! Did you end up picking anything up? Also, thank you very much!
