FOTD: Yellow

So, I got attached to yellow eyeshadow as a concept, I guess. I made this face and I took this when Arabelle Sicardi mentioned ‘yellow eyeshadow’ and POCs, and yeah. This happened. Nothing special: literally just yellow eyeshadow all over my mobile lid + the warmer brown all over my lower lash line, fading into the darker one on the outer 1/3. I’ve been very low maintenance with makeup, which is great but also kind of oops because I have a shit ton of products I don’t use so much anymore but can’t get myself to get rid of. What to do!

Anyway, again: I love …

FOTD: Cool Cut Crease + a Strong Cheek

An FOTD that’s not my typical boring face. I keep trying to use this Maybelline concealer but it’s really shit. Not sure why people like it so much. I feel so ashy-faced, but I’m not sure if it’s because of the color match or the texture. Leaning towards the texture, which just makes me feel cakey for some reason. It’s really weird. I have a pretty full bottle here (shade Medium) if anyone wants it. I got rid of the sponge but it’s pretty intact otherwise.
