I wish I wasn't so challenged when it comes to doing makeup. I would kill to be able to do a smokey eye and not look like a raccoon. It annoys me everytime I read an article in a mag giving you "simple" steps to do your own smokey eyes. Yea my ass! So my makeup routine is basically ALWAYS mascara, a little black powder liner, sometimes a little bronze shadow on my bottom lashes and bronzer. (Hoola by Benefit is a fave.) I don't even really do lipgloss for two reasons: 1-I find it difficult to find a color I like and 2-I'm way too addicted to my cocoa butter chapstick that it's second nature to me to just whip it out and rub it on my lips. I swear I have no idea I'm doing it sometimes. People think it's a gluestick..but fear not. Anyway found this photo and am seriously considering going out and getting some sort of plum lipstick. Which, according to my mom, is definitely my color bc she refers to me as a "winter". And since I can't do the smokey eye, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to put on lipstick and therefore my eyes can be bare. Hmm considering it. But definitely loving this photo and all the different shades of the color.
