OOTD & Makeup – Goth in 20 Minutes

FEB15-20min_mkp4

I woke up late yesterday, which meant that I only had 20 minutes to get ready and leave for work.  So, that meant basic clothes and “running late face“.  This is where my accessories and gothic shoes really come in handy.  Of course, 90% of my wardrobe is black, so at least I didn’t have to worry about matching colors.  Isn’t goth fashion grand?

First, let’s start with what I wore.  As you can see, I was able to throw on layers of clothes.  What pulls this look together and makes it gothic are my shoes and my (minimal) jewelry:

Here’s yesterday’s makeup.  As usual, I applied most of my eye makeup on the train.  I don’t like to apply powdered cosmetics on the train – it can get a bit messy.  That’s where my fat, eye pencil by L.A. Colors comes in.  This product is da bomb!  You can use it as eyeshadow, eyeliner, and even use it as a lip liner.  As many of you makeup divas already know, lip liner in black helps to darken lipstick – for that deathly, yet beautiful, dark blood-red:

After applying the eye pencil, I use the small angled brush to soften the smudges.

All done!

 

I highly recommend the L.A. Colors Jumbo Eye Pencil set.  They come in a set of 24 pencils for $26 at Amazon.  I’m still a bit apprehensive with colored eyeshadow, but these pencils are a great way to try out different colors without breaking the bank.

OOTD & My "Running Late Face" for Tuesday

20140401-114228.jpg

 

Just another average Tuesday, but here’s my makeup for today.  Just a few sparkles and basic eyeliner.  This look takes about 15 minutes.  When I don’t have much time (which is usually), this is a go-to look that I have stashed in my brain. I call this my “running late face”: Continue reading OOTD & My "Running Late Face" for Tuesday
