Slightly off topic way to start this post, but there are a season or two of Bob Ross on Hulu now and I seriously can’t get enough. I also just found out the apparently the entire series is on youtube as well, so now I’m really excited. You may be thinking “But Nicole what does that have to do with your instagram makeup looks that you’re about to show us?” Well I would like to name him as my official inspiration of the moment. I look in the mirror at my face and wonder what I should do and I hear Bob whisper “Beat the devil out of it” and I do…
Lmao all kidding aside that guy was amazing. Sure he literally painted the same thing 30 thousand times and it’s all just technique but it’s mesmerizing, and he keeps tiny baby squirrels in his pocket. The man was pure magic.
So what have you all been up to? Kicking ass? Killing it at life? Making today your b*tch? Good I’m glad to hear it.
Let’s have a peek at that first instagram makeup look, shall we?
For this look I busted out the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made palette again. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a palette that’s not just your every day neutrals. I also used the Stila Magnificent Metals shadow in Comex Gold as a liner, and I think it works better as a liner than it does as a shadow.
I wore this out to a family dinner, on a day when it was windy and freezing cold outside and I managed not to let my eyes water until all of my liner came off, so let’s count that as a huge win! I’ve been concocting a solution to this problem and I think we’re almost there.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick Foundation in #115 | Anastasia Cream Contour Kit in Fair | Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Dark Brown | Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed | Metallic Plum and Self Made from the Anastasia Self Made Eyeshadow Palette | Stila Magnificent Metals Shadow in Comex Gold | Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper | Tarte Lip Paint in FOMO
Fun fact after I took these photos I realized that my rose print sweater had a huge hole in the arm. So let’s have a moment of silence for it….or maybe I can sew it. It’s not on a seam but it’s worth a try.
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick Foundation in #115 | Anastasia Powder Contour Kit in Light | Anastasia DipBrow Pomade in Dark Brown | Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed | Tarte Tartelette II In Bloom Palette | House Of Lashes Boudoir Lash | Too Faced Melted Chocolate Cherries Lipstick | Anastasia That Glow Kit |
Also, the ABH Glosses are somehow thick, pigmented and long wearing but never sticky…how the hell do they do that? Are they made by wizards? The same goes for the new Make Up For Ever Artist Plexi Glosses. They make me confused and happy.
