Makeup Monday: Glitter and Smoke









Just before I left Florida, I caught a cold that was going around. Two days in the car (we drove to and from) and one day in the freezing cold rain later, I woke up feeling absolutely miserable. I'd love to pretend that this is what I look like when I'm sick, but this is just what I look like when I'm sick and can cleverly hide a red nose and dark circles with makeup. I spent most of my day with tissues strewn about me, watching Harry Potter and drifting in and out of sleep. But a hot shower and a freshly opened box of goodies from my friends at Urban Decay made me feel (and look!) like a new person, at least for awhile. Glittering, smokey eyes are such a nice pick-me-up - especially with a duo-chrome shadow that stands on its own, really - and this soon-to-be-launched sheer pink lipstick is a perfect companion.

  11. It sounds like I had the same cold you had- it was miserable! I also watched some HP while I was sick... then again I watch it every day, so that's nothing special. That was the worst cold of my life, I can't imagine having to spend 2 days of it in a car!

    You are the smoky eye queen, btw. This looks beautiful on you!
