Some recent looks #3

Posted on November 18, 2015 under FOTD

It’s been awhile since I last posted makeup pictures, and I have a bit of a backlog. Let’s cut the preamble and jump right into it. As always, shades I used in palettes are marked with a very crude pink star.

All Burgundy All The Time

I love eyeshadows that look good on their own, that you can just slap on and blend out at the edges and call it a day. I mean, crafting a complex eye look is fun and all, but I don’t always have time for that – yet I don’t want to sacrifice looking like I’m an eyeshadow master. I also love magenta/burgundy/berry/plum, and since it’s fall it just makes sense to put a bunch of stuff in that shade range on my face. I love how this monochrome look turned out!

Remember how I said I’m into one-shadow looks? Yeah. Here’s another one. This was also my attempt to get more into my BalmJovi palette, which has some gorgeous shades shades that were just made for fall. Since the eyes on this one were pretty dark, I went for a light lipstick to balance it all out.

Celebratory Gold Glitter

So, you may have heard that Canada has a new Prime Minister. Like most Canadians in my demographic (students living in a big city), I was vehemently opposed to Stephen Harper, who was PM for almost ten years. This was my first federal election, and while my local candidate did not win (:() and while I’m not a huge Liberal supporter, I’m excited just to be done with Harper! My American roommate was into the election too, and we watched the entire thing together.

The next day I decided to go all out with the gold and glitter to celebrate the fact that Canada can put Harper behind us. I also went with a warm red lipstick and peach blush, because they were pretty together and made me happy.

Grad Photos

This is actually a really similar look to my Justin Trudeau-is-PM look, but it’s a classic for a reason! I had my grad photos taken a few weeks ago and obviously I went all out. I decided to do my makeup as close to quintessential Clem as possible. (This is harder than it sounds considering I switch it up all the time!) I like to experiment with eyeshadow, but I would say I’m most comfortable with a light, slightly shimmery, neutral look – so I went with that. Most people said I should go for a natural lipstick colour, but I went with my gut and chose something more me – naturally, Charlotte Tilbury Red Carpet Red. I’m glad about it, because with how fair I am and how washed out the lighting made me I think the red helped make me look alive:
