Look: "Christmas Afterparty", and catching up

Yay, I'm back! I'm going to try and catch up on what I've been doing these last few weeks: If you read my last update post, you know I was unable to post since Christmas. The reasons being #1, a death in my family and #2, I ran out of photo storage space on my free blog account. I just purchased more space so now I can finally post again. :)

Picking up where I left off, this is my half of the Christmas photoshoot I did with my brother and sister. (You can see sister Becky's post here.)
Our brother gave us studio photography equipment as a Christmas present, so he helped us figure out how to use it (well, he tried.. lol) and we had a fun photography session. I threw on some quick makeup for the occasion because I figured, why waste a photoshoot? xD
Pics are clickable :)

Some of these are a little awkward lol

 I'll try to remember what I used...

-mark. face primer
-CS Camouflage Concealer palette (lightest shade)
-mark. Powder Buff in Nude
-Eye and lip primer from BFTE on eyes (I think)
-NYX JEP in Milk
-Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow in Afterparty (bold blue on lid)
-BH 120 Palette, 1st Edition (Teal, yellow, champagne highlight, and brows)
-UD pencils in Zero (black on upper lid) and Radium (bright blue on waterline)
-Cover Girl Lash Perfection mascara in Very Black
-Some kind of blush, don't remember :(
-mark. Juice Gems lip gloss in Juicy Snow Peach
-BFTE shadow in 24K Gold (gold shimmer/glitter on cheekbones but you can't see it in the photos)

Pretty short compered to the usual long list of products, lol. I won the Afterparty eyeshadow in a blog giveaway, I'll post about that soon! 

My brother also got me Aperture on my laptop so I've been using that for my pictures. Some of the pictures I'll be posting, including these, will have been edited in Aperture, but I usually only edit slightly for things like cropping/resizing, white balance, sharpening, etc. I might make some kind of picture editing disclaimer to include in my posts, what do you think? 
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the pics and I can't wait to show you what else I've been up to! ;) Hope you're all doing well, leave me a note to say hi!
Thanks for reading!<3


  1. Stunning! This is the kind of makeup I want to be able to rock out in public, but I always seem to chicken out.

    1. Same here! Only rarely do I manage to overcome my insecurities and just do it, but I think I'm getting better little by little :D Thank you!

  2. Beautiful, that blue really suits you :)

    1. Thanks! I love blue, it really is a brown-eyed-girl's best friend :)

  3. WOOOOW! That's soooo stunning! I think this is perfect for summer! Paired with a light blue dress and yellow flats it would be so cute ♥
